How did you get interested in what you do?
I've always been a crafty person. As a kid I always liked to make things. One of the first things I was complemented on at school was how neat my colouring in was. Soon, all the kids in my class wanted me to colour in their stuff for them!
As I got older I started to take up cross stitch. Then when I was in high school I got a weekend job in a craft store. It was the best job in the world because I got to be around everything crafty all day, and get paid for it! It was at this job that I learned alot about rubber stamping and card making, and I was soon passing this info onto inquiring customers. Ever since then I've been making cards in my spare time.
How long have you been doing your craft?
Pretty much for 6 or 7 years, but only started to do it frequently in the last year. Before this past year I made cards mostly for family occasions. I have moved around alot since the age of 18, which has not been compatible with stockpiling card making stuff. But right now I am settled in the US for the near future, so have started to increase my inventory of supplies. In July of this year I found out about Etsy and couldn't wait to open a shop selling my cards.
Do you sell anywhere besides Etsy?
