Celebrating Special Moments
I just attended a wedding and many graduation parties over the past few weeks. It was so fun for me to see the different ways memories were presented and preserved for the future. There were slide shows, scrapbooks, guest books for guests to share their best wishes, DVD's of performances and programs. It really made each of the celebrations more special.
Here is what she had to say in our interview:

What is your business about?

I sell affordable craft supplies that are unique and convenient to use. I also make handmade scrapbooks, greeting cards and invitations and unique gifts.

When did you first start scrapbooking?

I made my first scrapbook about 12 years ago. Friends and family requested that I make scrapbooks to celebrate special occasions once they saw mine. I decided I liked preserving memories in scrapbooks enough to start a small home based business while my two boys were small. It has expanded over the past 5 years to include many paper crafting items. I also teach local scrapbook and card making classes. Many times the crafters who attended my classes wanted extra supplies to make multiples of what they had just learned to make. So, it seemed a natural expansion of my business to begin selling craft supplies.

How did you find out about the Sunshine Farm Girl Co-op?

I was invited by Marsha to join the team on Etsy. It seemed like a great way to network with other Etsy shop owners and help promote each other's businesses. I ordered an April sampler bag and was very impressed with the quality of items that were included. It was so fun to be able to sample actual products from various shops in a very affordable way. There is nothing quite like seeing and feeling these items "in person".

Where can folks find you online?
