A Creative Spirit
I consider myself to have a creative spirit and I love the fact that being a mom allows me to express that creativity in so many ways. I think having the opportunity to express ourselves creatively as children and adults is so important to our well-being. The inspiration behind my craft projects is my kids. Being a busy mom in school, I set out to find a something for my children to create that included more high quality and creative pieces than the typical store bought products. I think I only found one item that I liked and it was generously overpriced.
So instead, I got carried away with the tedious task of creating my own cute and fun designs. Being a long admiring customer of Etsy shop owners I realized that I might have something to contribute to this sea of treasures. I sell high quality paper craft kits for kids and fun adults. I use only high quality scrapbooking paper. I even make the googly eyes for some kits, which add to their quality and uniqueness.
What I like most about my business is that I am able to share with others my own creative contribution. Also, it’s a great distraction when you’re supposed to be studying for a final! The thing I like least about it to be honest is that I haven’t made any profit from it. I’m still hopeful that there will be more interest in my creations and that it will allow me to expand on what I have done so far. If nothing else, it created an opportunity for me to give back in a personal way by donating my crafts to Shriners Children’s Hospital. If others would like to use my patterns to re-create what I have done and donate them to similar places like Children’s Hospitals and displaced children in foster care I welcome it.
