We were not using the upstairs of our house, so after I opened the first ETSY shop, I claimed it as mine. At the time, my auto-immune disease was acting up. One of my symptoms was an inability to tolerate any sunlight at all. Being a nature lover, it was devastating to not be able to go outside during the day, so I decided to turn my work area into a faux garden. Along with the fake flowers and plants, I also have several quirky items that never fail to make me smile.
My newest 'toy' is the embroidery machine. In the near future, I hope to add embroidered items to one of my shops.
