Anyone who knows me knows that I'm "always working on something". Always
creative, I am eternally inquisitive, always learning, teaching, helping, researching,
and best of all...doing.
No stranger to change, or the DIY world, I've lived and worked in many states and
my 30+ years in the corporate environment gave me the foundation to help launch
my many businesses (can anyone say "serial entrepreneur?).
In 2004 I launched a DIY Home Décor business which enjoyed moderate success with appearances on ABC Ch. 7 & Fox 32 and CLTV. I had created a Bath & Body line when a fellow vendor suggested a partnership that would allow us to sell our products in a boutique environment. This piqued my interest as it could help other vendors who needed a "storefront presence" for their products as well.
I soon realized that retail was not "my thing" as it did not allow time for creativity, hence; it was time for me to move on. Enter Etsy, the online handmade marketplace which allowed me the opportunity to be creative and sell my designs. I currently operate 4 Etsy stores and 2 YouTube channels. I enjoy the opportunity to be creative and sell my products as well as teaching others how to be creative. I'm also in the process of opening a 5th Etsy store which will focus on my love for Wreaths & Door Signs.
Circle back to today and Social Media is allowing me to showcase my products again as I now enter a new realm of DIYers. My new venture, 'Sip & DIY' is a new concept that allows me to travel to different venues to offer various DIY classes and workshops. With all of the do it yourself canvas painting events, I decided that my many creative DIY ideas could be offered to those seeking fun projects as well. There are so many DIY projects that can could teach that I couldn't resist throwing my hat back into the DIY world. “Handmade feel with a Retail Appeal” is my motto.
Easily bored if I'm not learning, you'll find me either completing my Etsy orders, researching products, or watching something informational and/or educational on YouTube. I love what I do and I'm interested in the process of just about anything for 5 minutes which is ample time to assess my 'genuine' interest.
My life is a reflection of a quote from the late Wayne Dyer....I have a mind that's Open to Everything and Attached to Nothing.
You can find me across all Social Media platforms, and my Etsy shops.
