Technology these days is vast and overwhelming.
Most days I feel like I am so far behind, spinning my wheels. I don't Tweet, and only occasionally log in to Facebook. I do have a blog, but it is really more my diary than anything else.
Those of you who know me well know that I love to create. I had a booth at the BSU art fair in the fall of ...oh, I think it was 1983? where I sold wheat weaving. A traditional Scandinavian craft. It did really well, but I got tired of trying to buy wheat cheap and soak it in my bathtub, and I had worn a groove in my front teeth from knotting wire (please don't tell my dentist...)
I made dolls, and rabbits, and dried floral arrangements. I sold them through home shows, at my parent's house, or my in-law's. I have made fresh pine wreaths with my immediate family, and sold those. I was a calligrapher for a while, and did menus for restaurants.
I have thought of more business names than you can imagine.
I guess I only feel whole when I can create things. Sure, I can do the bookkeeping for ACES. But if that was all I had, I would lose my mind. So in my spare time I make jewelry, I sew, I knit, I garden, I play with paper. And I have gotten so carried away, that now I really need to sell again.
Modern day is not about a craft show. Today's technology gives us Etsy. And I now have a shop. And once I have it stocked, I will send you there so you can do a little shopping.
Stay tuned to see what happens next!
