Love and Support Handmade

As you know, in my quest to do something I enjoy, I settled on sewing and have taken to it. I love the feel of bringing a piece of fabric home and imagining what it is going to become. To sell what I make, I opened an Etsy store and set up shop. It is very easy to get buried in the quick buck,click buy from Alibaba resell jungle that goes on there. I don't want to just be there to make a quick buck, I want people to know I make quality hand made items that I stand behind. 
Handmade to me means just that. Start out with nothing, Imagine what it will be, Implement it and create it. I wake up every morning excited about what I am going to make, and I am very excited to share my journey and creations with the world. 
With that being said, I have been fortunate enough to become part of a group who sells and supports hand made items. We are the Etsy Handmade Team
