I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and our dog Jack. My shop is Happy Dog Buttons where I sell pinback buttons, magents and mirrors. I also sell dog coats, beds, jackets and dog toys under the name Happy Dog
I have always liked crafts, beaded jewelry, quilts, making handmade cards, and things for dogs and now buttons, magnets and mirrors. My favorite things to make right now are the mirrors.
In the past I have sold at craft shows which I love because of the interaction with people. I'm frequently asked if I have a website, so Esty was the answer I was looking for. I didn't realize there would be such a great community of other sellers. That has been the bonus.
I found the EPE team when searching through the Forums one day, it was a good fit because I like to raise money for the Susan G Komen 3 day with my Breast Cancer buttons. Many close family members have battled Breast Cancer so I participated in the 3 Day in Seattle in 2010 and it was one of the best experiences of my life.
Some of my favorite things are the handmade recipes that I inherited from my husband's Grandmother. I love to cook too so having her recipes means a lot. I used some of her recipes in our local Fair where I enter a variety of food competitions every year.
