Yes ma’am, I love this and feel that this is my word of 2019… ALL IN
What exactly does it mean? Maybe nothing to to you, but to me right now it means everything!!!
So in 2008 after a winter from Antarctica(literally I think it may have been warmer there🤣) and being without power for 21 days… came back on just in time for Superbowl(another reason I am reflecting today… super bowl is Sunday)
I couldnt craft without power, my cricut wouldn’t work, couldn’t see to stamp, so I dug around in my craft supplies and found beads and wire, decided to try my hand at jewelry. My first few pieces were made using craftsman wire cutters and pliers, turned out okay.
My family urged me to sell my wares including my greetings cards so once the power came back on and we thawed out I opened my ETSY shop 11 years ago this March.
I would list a few items and then get frustrated and tired of waiting for sales so I put it on the back burner, I did etsy on and off for the next 10.5 years.
I would get so busy, meaning I let life get in the way of my ETSY success. Any regrets no way!!!! Here is what I have been up to in the past 10.5 years
2008- graduated with my associates degree… and started school for my undergrad
2010-graduated with my bachelors degree and passed my coding certification, began teaching medical coding
