Tell us about your business.

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember and I have always dreamed of someday building my own crafting business. I opened my Etsy shop five months after my first child was born. I stay at home with my kids and I work while they nap. I love to dabble in all types of crafting and sewing. My shop began with custom picture frames and has evolved over time. My main product offering is currently burlap wall prints. I love working with my customers to create their personalized items. I get to help people express themselves and to create special items for some of the most important occasions in their lives such as weddings and the birth of a child. Last year, a local store began selling my burlap prints. I would love to grow this brick & mortar portion of my business and reach even more customers!

I work out of my home while my children are napping.

What inspires you?

I love custom orders. I enjoy hearing the stories behind my customers' custom quote requests. I have a great time searching, or happening upon, new quotes for my prints. I love receiving suggestions for new prints on my facebook page and I often make new prints based on these suggestions. My prints are often given as gifts. I love knowing that the quotes will bring a smile to someone's face or inspire them and it's so rewarding to know that my work "lives" on the walls of my customers' homes.

What makes your business stand out?

I love custom orders and I offer free personalization and customization on all orders!

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Believe in your craft!

What does American Made mean to you?
