This is a bio from SmileyMoo that was forwarded to me so I could post it on my blog so everyone can get to know a little bit of what drives her creativity.
"I am the wife and mother to a wonderful husband and 4 beautiful children. I live a very frugal lifestyle. With 4 children and being a stay at home mother...I HAVE TO! Creating and making things or my family is my one and true inspiration. It all started with me learning to sew so that I could make cloth diapers for my little one. Then I learned to make soap, shampoo, body wash and laundry detergent so that I could save my family money. From there I've branched off into a variety of crafts and crafting so that our family is pretty self sufficient! That is the reason my Etsy shop is a Variety Shop! :)
For the month of October I am running a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure. 50% of the proceeds from items in the "For the Cure" section pf my shop will go towards the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure. My goal is to raise $60 for my family to participate in the walk with a dear friend recovering from breast cancer. Additional funds will go towards a donation.
Below are some photos of SmileyMoo's favorits listed for sale in her Etsy shop.
(SmileyMoo) "I have been a longtime JRR Tolkien fan and these remind me of something you'd see in Lord of the Rings."
(SmileyMoo) "I also really love these placemats :) I use these in my own home. They're very heavy duty and reversible. They hold up very well with daily use and washing :)"
SmileyMoo's jewelry reminds me to belive that magic is held in the most simplest things. Take the time to shop through her store. There are great finds on every page.
