I think at first it started out of necessity, I wanted something, but budget wise could not afford it, if I wanted it I knew I could make it a lot cheaper, as I tried and had success, I gained confidence in myself. I love to make something from nothing. In my life time I have been blessed to have been able to learn so many things from building Primitive reproduction furniture, primitive dolls, I created dolls as well as clothing, country decor, sewing for a unique shop in the Old Port, here in Portland. Doing crafts with the kids, painting pictures, learning to draw, and so many more.
Now with my shop on Etsy flourishing, I work daily creating hand stamped jewelry and key chains, that I sell in my Etsy shop.
