Handmade with Love Giveaway Blog Hop
is coming soon!!
I have some exciting prizes lined up for you.
1. Where are your from and tell us a little about yourself?
I am originally from Michigan and moved south when I was in the 1st grade so I have lived most of my life in MS!. I love being a grandmother to two adorable grandsons. We have 2 boxer mixed dogs who are our children now! I am a Christian and teach Sunday school and a group of 3rd and 4th graders on Wednesday nights. I am also on the LBA(Local Board of Adminstration) of our church.
2. Why did you start your etsy shop?
I started my Etsy shop to try to earn some extra money. We live on a fixed income since my husband is on disability. I also am a crafty person and I thought Etsy would be an outlet for my creations!
3. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
My favorite item in my shop is the book markers with the crosses on the end. They are perfect bookmarks for your Bible!
4. What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
The message I want to convey with my crafts is how much I love Jesus. He has always provided for us. My favorite Bible vers is found in Colossians 3:17 - "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." I do thank God everyday for giving me the opportunity to be able to teach others and help them explore their creative talents.
5. Why should people buy handmade?
I think when you buy handmade you are getting a product that someone has spent time and love into making. Most of the time it is better made too!
6. Apart from creating for your shop, what else do you do?
Apart from making items for my Etsy shop, I help take care of my 89 year old mother. I do all her shopping (since she does not go out much these days), do her laundry and take her to all of her doctors appointments. I also am at our church alot! We have a meal every Wednesday night and I do all the shopping and some of the cooking. I do have a part time job with a jewelry company based in CA where I service their displays in the 2 local JC Penny stores here in the Jackson area. I get to use my creativeness here also in arranging the jewelry on the towers. And of course there are the two grandsons I love to spend time with!!
