8. How long have you been crafting what you sell on Etsy? My love for art, and drawing and painting started in my childhood. My mom painted in oils and two of my Aunts were artists at Hallmark Cards. In the early 80's when I discovered and learned to love Folk Art, and wood crafting, and started making things for myself and others. I love working with wood. I'm not afraid of major power tools. When I became a single mom in the 90's I started doing craft shows and wholesale marketing, but got a "regular job" and remarried and didn't do much with it for 15 years. Since all but one of my kids moved out I set up a new art room, found etsy and got back to crafting! I make game boards, birdhouses, folk art, signs, Bible verse plaques, and Noah's Arks, etc.
