Today marks the beginning of my first formal contribution to the world-wide crafting community! For too long I have been a watcher, participating only in my rare free-time, and silently wishing I were brave enough to do what I love. Crafting, like reading or playing an instrument, puts me in that peaceful place where I am free to be me and free from the mundane stresses of life. About six months ago, I decided to aggressively pursue my passions.
It turns out that my background in environmental restoration, B.A. in English lit., artistic family history, nature-loving childhood, vast library of children's literature, passion for learning, and teaching experience, as well as experience in Mom & Pop toy sales, have all converged to inspire me to create beautiful, durable children's toys that inspire the imagination.
The following posts will be a documentation of the creative journey I am on to becoming a young businesswoman and connected crafter. Along with a passion for children, I also garden at home and at my school, read extensively, and generally seek out beautiful things in my life. I hope to be able to share all of these with you, as well as my triumphs and tribulations creating my first Etsy shop.
I can't wait to connect with you and learn from you, so please don't hesitate to contact me with comments, responses, suggestions, constructive criticisms, requests and whatnot. It's all about community!
