-IntroductionI am a mother of two grown sons, grandmother to two granddaughters and one grandson. I live in a very rural area with my wonderful husband on land that we absolutely love, that he inherited from his father. We have a few cows and chickens, and several dogs on our “farm”. Part of our land is wooded and joins Jefferson National Forest. It’s a perfect place for someone like me who’s spirit is re-charged by walking in nature, listening, seeing, smelling and feeling creation.
-How did you get your start on Etsy?
I was making jewelry at the time, one of a kind statement pieces, and thinking of selling them. I started watching Etsy to see how it worked. I have always loved photography and came upon my gourd art by accident, and finally decided to try Etsy. -How did you choose your shop name?
Our neighbor has a gorgeous Bean Tree ( Catalpa or Catawba) in his front yard, and seeing it every day inspired me.
-What does a typical day look like for you?
I work part time, so my days vary. I try to do Bible reading or devotional first thing, then take the day as it comes. My favorite days are my “create” days, when I can play in my workshop as long as I want. -If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be? I don't really know, there are a lot of places I'd like to see, (Italy, England,Ireland, Jerusalem, among others) but as corny as it sounds I'm really happy at home. If I could have all my family here at one time that would be a great day.
-What is your favorite Bible verse?
“This is the day the LORD has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
I have friends who seem to live their lives complaining, which is something I don’t deal with well. We have so many things to be thankful for, even when our lives seem to be going wrong. I want to remember that always, and rejoice that I’m loved and saved.
-What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?
Probably the photo I took, of the sun rising over the hill behind our house, with the above scripture printed on it. -URLs to where else we can find you on the internet (Facebook fan page, Twitter, your owndot.com, your blog, etc)”
