Over the past four years I have found myself artistically inspired by my teaching partner. She has an art education degree and is a talented artist. She makes beautiful cards, several of which I have framed and have hanging in my home. I have learned so much from her over the past several years and have worked to fulfill my own artistic goals. In the past I have made my own cards and am now perfecting the process. I enjoy the work and would like to move to another level with my handmade things. I have also found passion in working with fibers. I enjoy working with soy silk and wool roving. I have also enjoyed working with handmade paper and creating with sea glass. I have so many ideas running through my head. I am seriously considering starting an etsy shop. I know some of the folks that I read regularly have their own etsy shops and I would love to hear about your experiences. The handmade things I give as gifts are always well received but would they sell is the question. What do you think?
