I started very young making Christmas tags and My Mom would sell them where she worked. I loved the feeling it gave me to create something others enjoyed and that started it all!
Two years ago I created a clothes Pin bag and someone told me I should sell them and I thought why not! My husband is unable to work like he use to (we are in our early 60’s), we have a home in AriZona and live in North Dakota - I needed to work but didn’t want to be tied to ND so we couldn’t go to AZ. Maybe I could start my own business and Etsy has the perfect set up for someone like me so That is exactly what I did.
The growth has been slow and steady for just me doing everything and I found myself at the end of most months telling my family I had my best month ever! I love the creating end of what I do and adding new items to my shop. I’m an old duffer in the Etsy world and don’t have the savvy and knowledge on all the new lingo and how to market but I can sew and will learn the rest as I go! I love color and matching fabrics and have been told several times I have an eye for it. It’s a passion and who knew it would take till I’m 61 to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up!
