I started selling in my Etsy shop back in January of 2008 and was able to create a full fledged business shortly after. At that time, I was working a full-time job for the government and after 2-3 months of selling on Etsy, was able to put my notice in with my employer, left my job and started selling my handmade pieces full-time by May of 2008. I had often hoped (daydreamed?) to be a Featured Seller and was absolutely thrilled when I was contacted by the Etsy team.

Etsy has been an amazing venue for launching small handmade businesses. It's wonderful and inspiring to watch new businesses quickly take off and grow. I even encouraged my big sis to start an etsy shop of her own, and now that is basically what she's doing everyday. :)

After a short time, I launched my own off etsy online store and started getting a flood of wholesale requests. I curate my wholesalers to a manageable select list currently, until I have a few more workers, but it's been very exciting to build up a business from literally zero.

I currently have two contract workers (including my own mom!) and I think I've wrangled help from just about every relative I have at one point or another, but I have the most thanks going to my husband who has helped and supported me on my crazy venture these past few years.

I'm very excited for the future of Twigs & Honey as we've got lots in store for the future! I have so many secret projects that I promise to share once I can. Thank you so much to all the supporters and friends of Twigs & Honey AND thank you, Etsy!
