I asked her a few questions to help us get to know her better~
Tell us a little about you and your family~
I am a Christian work-at-home wife and mom. I met my husband on eHarmony in 2003 and we married in 2004. I am really blessed that God chose to give me such an amazing man! My husband and I have two boys--one who is 15 and is a special needs kid, due to being born with 1/2 a heart and having 5 strokes at age 2; and one who is 2 and is a precious little boy who came to use through foster care. We are in the final weeks of the adoption process; everything will be final on March 12. As a family, we really enjoy spending time together, and we especially enjoy taking the short trip to Monterey, CA. We like to go fishing and camping. As for me, I enjoy many things: Creating on the computer, singing, reading, baking, fishing, going on dates with my hubby, travel, scrapbooking, and more.
How long have you been selling on Etsy and what drew you to that market?
I have been selling on Etsy since November of 2006. I found out about Etsy from another crafting forum that I belonged to. I started out selling the jewelry that I made. Soon I realized that I could create banners and avatar for Etsy shops, and so I opened a "banner shop". Then, I wanted to do the photo greeting cards, so instead of cluttering up the banner shop, I opened Photo Greetings. I am always looking for ways to supplement my husband's income, and Etsy seemed like a natural fit for me.
I noticed your shop donates 10% of your profit to "Hands At Work Africa." Please tell us a little about that great organization~
We do donate 10% of our proceeds to "Hands at Work in Africa". Thank you so much for asking about this organization. I found out about it through our new church that we are now attending. Hands at Work in Africa is Christ-centered, community-based, committed to the poor and striving boldly to reach 100,000 orphaned and vulnerable children in Africa by 2010...one by one. There are so many orphaned and vulnerable children in Africa because of war and disease. So many children are considered "head of household", and are "parenting" their younger siblings...including sometimes walking for miles to get food for the family. This is a tragedy. It is so easy for us to remain "detached" from what is going on in Africa, because it's a bunch of "nameless faces". But because of the Gospel of Christ, there is no way that we as a family can NOT do something to help. We may not be able to travel there in the near future, but we know that God can take what we give and put it to good use, allowing it to reach those in need. Here in America, we may be considered "low income" the area where we live, but comparatively speaking, we are rich. God has given us all that we have, and we want to give back, to help others.
