After giving this considerable thought, I've finally decided to launch my blog..whew! I had no idea it would be this difficult! Not being a computer genius by any means I've muddled through, and hope to make this as painless as possible for those of you who might stop in :)
I suppose as this is my first post I should give a little of my background..I'll try not to bore with details. I am first of all a wife and mother, grandma and dog-mom. The initial course I chose for my life was to be a graphic designer, and majored in art in college. Plans change-I married, had my daughter Jenny, then went back to nursing school, and I've worked in the medical field for the past 30 (gosh!) years.
With my daughter grown and a son of her own, I finally went back to my first love, and opened an etsy shop a year and a half ago. Here I have the chance to create things I love, and I also sell vintage items I might happen upon. My etsy shop can be found here: http://www.sugarmtnmercantile.etsy.com/ I also have a shop on Artfire which I am in the process of setting up right now. I also occasionally sell on ebay when the spirit moves me :)
Through etsy I have met a wonderfully talented group of fellow artists and artisans, The Old Farmhouse Gathering team, whom I'm proud to say have taken me in as a member. They are a source of inspiration, comfort, and the occasional "kick-in-the-heiney" when needed, and I can't say enough about this special group of folks.
Hopefully I will be bringing some fun things to this blog..keeping you up to date with happenings in my shops, my family and whatever craziness I might find myself in next. Thanks for stopping by.
