What kind of things do you make?
Mostly jewelry and accessories, but I also enjoy making other things like softies, key chains, magnets, etc.
How long have you been doing your craft?
For as long as I can remember! When we were little, my sister and I were always making earrings and hair clips, sewing barbie clothes, etc.
When did you start selling and what inspired you to start selling?
I started selling in 2007. I am on disability because of chronic migraines, but really wanted to be able to make a living for myself, without depending on disability. My boyfriend lives in Denmark, and to be able to move there, I have to be able to provide for myself, as I won't be able to get disability there. No pressure at all ;)
