Here is my story...
I was born and raised in the Midwest and moved to Florida during my senior year of high school. I then went to college, got married, had 2 kids and that is when I was given my first sewing machine by my Mother-in-Law. I did make a few items here and there, over the years. I would get it out and play and then put it away. I have always had a "thing" for crafting. But since I am self taught, I never really made anything that was too hard. It was just a hobby.
I spent 15 years working with my Mom and loved every moment of it. Then I got sick... I had to sell my business... and then I found myself so depressed I didn't get out of bed for two years.
and then... I got up!
After wasting 2 years of my life, I went in my craft room for the first time since we had remodeled our home. I started making Jewelry... loved it... couldn't photograph it correctly, so I moved on. I started making Photo Stone Tile Coasters, then purses and bags, lampshades were next and then...
my daughter walked into my craft room and asked me to make her a headband ...
The Dolly Bow Wire Headband.
That was the moment that changed the course of my life forever. I have never looked back. If I had set out to sell over 15,000 hair accessories... I would have said "are you crazy!! I can't! I don't have the energy, the time, the money... the talent." But I didn't know that I couldn't. I just made a few and then a few more...
Whatever your story is, where ever you find yourself, you can do it!
You just have to get up...
I also own the Etsy Store, LilCountryGarland (currently non-active)
