How did you get started as a crafter?
I have been crafting all my life .When I was little I always remember my mom crafting . She would always let us help her work on what she was doing. If we would have an idea on a craft project she would be very supportive and teach us how to make the item. She always had little craft projects for us to do. Now, I returned the favor and helped her open an ETSY shop.
How did your hobby become a business?
It started with a greeting card. I started making greeting cards for friends and family and it took off. Someone asked me about party supplies and that was it.
