Tell us about your business.

My grandmother started me in crafting when I was only 7 years old and I've loved crafting ever since. I do crochet, plastic canvas, cross stitch, knit, jewelry, doll clothing, pet accessories, and various general gift items as well as seasonal products. I hope to be able to open a brick-and-mortar store some day.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

Since I live in a small apartment, my workspace is wherever I find a spot to do it in - the kitchen table, a TV tray in front of my chair, or over by the window for my sewing. I make do.

What inspires you?

Nature, others' work, bright colors.

What makes your business stand out?

I have unique gift items to offer and I also do custom-made items.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Don't let yourself get discouraged; if it doesn't work the first time, give it another try!

What does American Made mean to you?

It means quality and not junk.
