This all started with a routine trip to the grocery store… I was walking towards the groceries at Wal-Mart when I decided to look for some kind of “craft” to do over a weekend. I was feeling creative and wanted to make something. As I fumbled around the craft section I was drawn to the jewelry set. Looking around at all the colorful beads and other supplies, I became dizzy with the amount of choices in front of me.
     Finally, overwhelmed with the sheer quantity of choices, I looked down and saw a beginner’s box that came with an instruction book and all the supplies needed to learn how to make the most basic of projects. I grabbed it immediately and couldn’t wait to get home to try it out.
     It’s really important to note that at this time my husband and I had just welcomed our second child and I was at home in maternity leave from a very busy full-time job. I am also in graduate school; so the idea of taking on another addition to our busy life was a tough decision. But I have always enjoyed crafts and thought this would be a fun thing to do once in a while. I had no idea how much I would come to love making jewelry or that I would end up opening an online store and creating a business. That was almost one year ago and I’ve not yet regretted the day I picked up the jewelry making kit.
