Women Entrepreneurs

I just read the most wonderful article in Country Living magazine regarding women entrepreneurs. There's a whole section on women artists and it is really inspiring.

There's also an article on vintage jewelry further along in the mag. and one of the artists is also on etsy. Her shop is Check it out, her creations are really beautiful.

I am so excited about my etsy shop because I now have a starrydeborah banner. My daughter has been working on it for me and I just think it is so beautiful. It's a close up shot of one of my collages and it really has a 3-d look. I now feel totally official as an etsy artist.

I've been working on a few new creations, one is a round hat size box that I am giving a vintage aged look to and another is a small cylinder container with a yellow cream color theme and when I'm finished with these two items I am going to focus in on making a few all occasion cards. Actually, making cards is what I totally love to do. Every christmas I make over 40 handmade cards for family and friends. It can be kind of stressful because I tend to procrastinate and wait until the last minute to make them, but otherwise I really love it.

All my creating lately is done at my family room table. I have a trailer studio on our property but it is not heated so in the winter I have to bring all my supplies inside where it's warm.

My hubby is going to build me a cozy artists studio this summer so eventually all my creating will be away from the main house. But for now, as you can see in the above photo, it's in the house for all to see when they come to visit.

Okay, it's to my creating I must go now, talk to you soon,

Hi Hon,
Thanks for your response. Yes, it's confusing. Just stay with the group if it's working for you, just know it's not part of our Cottage Style Street Team.
Sorry to have confused you--ask me if you ever have any questions!

I'm going to have to get a copy of that mag--sounds interesting!

I used to have to do all my crafting on our dining room table (for years!) until my hubby built me a nice studio, so I can relate. It is such a joy to have a real space dedicated to my work now--and not having to take everything out and put everything away all the time!!! I hope you get that very soon!

Smiles, Karen
