Store



Store was one of my favorite games as a child. My Mother saved the packages of oatmeal, maccaroni, dish soap, anything I wouldn't hurt myself on. I keept my stock in large brown paper grocery bags, do you remember them. They smelled good and you could doodle on them. I often lined up my stock ready for the next customer, which was me, I took turns running the store and buying stuff from it. Like the old joke about the box of the toy being more fun then the contents. I loved the boxes, and containers and the package design...(i still do), although as a grown up I am aware of waste and the cost to all, anyway. It tingles the skin to say my "store" is up. I am at a real crossroads with the type of thing I want to produce...ah growth never easy walking in the dark afraid of stumbles, but anyway.. I launched my store with etsy (a site that features handmade stuff for sale) because I can do it, restocking of my shelves is quick and fun, as I mentioned before I am not a naturally technical lassy. It is great to play store in this way, I encourage you to visit and check out some of the other wonderful crafty handmade mechandise made by others as well as myself...ou la la, it is fun. With that said I cut the ribbon and say "Welcome to my Store"...
