About me

Location grand rapids, michigan
Introduction my name is Missy. i've always been a crafter. here i will display things i enjoy making, share ideas i've found and old things i've bought. i also have an etsy shop so, welcome!
Interests It has been a dream of mine to own a store so what better way to start than on etsy?! I've been collecting beautiful things since I was a young girl every summer on the beaches of Lake Michigan. Rocks were like little treasures to me. Even better were the colorful beach glass pieces that would wash up on shore and shine like jewels in the sparkling water. Those are some of my most cherished memories. I am such a water lover. Growing up around the fresh water lakes of Michigan is a dream come true for me. I feel so blessed for that. Collecting is a favorite hobby of mine, along with crafting. I've been doing both since before I can remember. I love searching secondhand stores and estate sales for old pottery/ceramics, brooches, necklaces, bracelets, clothing, purses and more. I don't always use the things I buy. Sometimes I find gifts or just buy it to sell because I know there will be someone who loves it as much as I do. I enjoy creating many things. It's hard for me to stick to one project. I like to dabble in a lot at once. Right now I work full-time at a hospital downtown. It is my dream to get this shop rolling and be able to have freedom from a 40hr/week office job. What artist wants to be stuck inside an office for that long? I'll pass on that, thank you. I am so excited to begin this journey of self discovery and personal growth! This feels right, this path toward achieving happiness in my life. Happiness from creating and doing what I love. Thanks for reading!
