Handcrafted Pink and White Dogwood Wreath for Etsy Shop

I made this handcrafted pink and white dogwood wreath yesterday for Craftiladi.  I have been working hard to learn about Etsy.  In case you don’t know what Etsy is….most everyone knows about Ebay…..Etsy is an Ebay for handmade crafts.  I have dabbled around making and selling handcrafted items and gifts for a long time, but I really need to step it up a notch.  This really is my true calling.  I am happiest when I am creating with my hands…..I absolutely love to craft things.  I have been taking webinars, reading articles, and doing everything that I can to try to make my lifelong dream come true!   Journey with me as I continue to make this passion for crafts to fill my life, with my love for handcrafts and hopefully other lives also!

Have a crafty day!!

Jamie’s Tree

 

When our daughter Jamie was born and growing up…..I decided that each year I would give her an ornament dated for that year.

When she got older and left our nest, got married or whatever pathway she chose to take in life…                                                   she would have a collection of ornaments to take with her.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   I searched stores and craft shows                                                     all the time for handmade, meaningful ornaments.
