I always wanted to be an artist, tried many mediums, felt odd about it and am now happy to say I’m a crafter. I’m progressively leaving my day-job for a career in crafting though the financial insecurity is killing me. I started sewing a couple of years ago, nothing serious, mostly curtains, bibs, cushions and an occasional quilt. Last Christmas I made simple tote bags for my colleagues at work and they were impressed by them. Another friend suggested I start selling them. I couldn’t believe I could but the idea grew on me and I decided to go for it. I create unique items and I feel I can spend the rest of my life doing that. I’m developing the website where my creations will be sold online (with the help of a skilled husband). I believe in handmade, in the fact that we need to slow down and to spend more time enjoying what we have to live a happy, serene life. I am inspired by colors, music, words, travels, simplicity and laughter. Daydreaming is one of my favorite activity, besides crafting, of course!
