My shop started at the dining end of my lounge diner approx. 7 years ago! The inspiration came from being on holiday and seeing mass produced items and thinking .... I think I could do that - but better!
Since moving home I am lucky enough to now have my own craft room to work from, so no longer need to work from the kitchen or dining table!
Whilst I started out making hand-painted wooden plaques I now sell hand-painted wooden letters too!
I attend local craft fairs to support village library, etc,
I work full-time and craft in my spare time (when I'm not cycling!).
