I opened my Etsy shop in May, 2009 as a way to de-stash all of the cards I found myself making in my spare time. My husband has joked that he knows I've had a hard day at work when he comes home and finds stacks of new cards in the office, lol.
On a whim, I submitted a couple of cards in October, 2009 to Cards Magazine and one was picked up for the April 2010 issue. Shortly thereafter Paper Crafts picked up a card for their 2010 Holiday Cards and More and now I've been published a number of times!
I'm truly blessed to have the time and a bit of spending money for this lovely hobby of mine. I sincerely feel that heartfelt greetings are lacking in our hurry up culture and am trying to do my part to bring a bit of it back.
Thanks for stopping by!
