For 10 years I worked for a large bank bouncing around between technical support and project management. In May 2011, I opened my Etsy shop. Due to a lot of hard work, good timing, and a bit of luck, I was able to quit my “day job” and pursue Etsy full time. I’m now a stay at home mom. My days are a bit chaotic juggling taking care of a strong willed boy, house work, and Etsy orders… and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
