it's been one year since i starting selling my jewelry on etsy! my first order was on october 6, 2009. since i became a stay at home mom, i loved having a creative outlet for me. i used to hand paint children's clothing, had a website/blog, and enjoyed sewing and crafting a variety of things. i would feature a variety of handmade items on my blog and write reviews. i was particularly interested in personalized jewelry and decided one day that i wanted to try it and learned on my own how to create jewelry. being a perfectionist made it very difficult to accept the fact that letters come out uneven and crooked occasionally. one year and 570 sales later, i'm still plugging away. i've had a few detours, including my mom's cancer, summer vacation, and now my daughter's possible back surgery. but, i hope i can find balance to continue to create meaningful jewelry for my wonderful customers. ♥
thank you to all of my customers who have ordered keepsakes for themselves and their loved ones to cherish!
