One piece at the time
I have sold on craft and biological mark ets, to shops and exposed in galleries since 2004. In 2010 I quit the markets (I exceptionally still go to a craft fair, once in a while) and started my Etsy shops.
the rest, is history....
I live a simple, peaceful life. I love what I do, my family, cats, animals and nature in general, anything that has a soul.
We live with 3 cats, two coming from the local shelter (Link and Midna), and one (Zelda) rescue from Greece.
The money I earn with my crafts are used first and foremost to pay the family bills, secondly, I donate on a regular basis to animal shelters and small projects taking care of stray and abandoned pets.
If and when anything is left, I occasionally buy little presents, for me and my dears. Still planning to save money for holidays...
Everything in my shop is either unique, or made in very limited quantities, as I love to recycle and reclaim materials, as well as to find dead stocks of fabrics, yarns etc. I hardly buy new stuff.
I'm vegetarian for a very long time, and nowadays actually going "as vegan as possible", and this can be found in my work as well. I try hard to lighten my footprint...
