This past year has included a lot of firsts for me. One major first is that I decided to open my own business selling my handmade jewelry. This led to many of the other firsts...my first time selling in a craft show, my first business checking account, even my first time filing taxes as a sole proprietor instead of just me (ugh! that was fun!).
Now, I"m branching into a new first--blogging. You'd think I would have jumped into blogging quite a while ago. I mean, I am an English teacher, aren't we supposed to to writer-type things? Doesn't blogging fall into that? Well, not so far.
However, as I've become more entrenched in the world of DIY and Handmade Goods, I've become to love the idea of handmade. I am enchanted with the idea that an object was carefully crafted, by someone else's hands, just for me. Someone's inspiration moved them to creation. Then this item, whether it is a purse, a piece of art, or a toy for my cat, has enriched my life.
So, this blog is going to focus on the handmade. My own work will appear from time to time; however, I hope to highlight a variety of artisans whose work enrich our lives. Thank you so much for joining me on this journey!
