I just want to share stories about my friend who got married, quit their 9 to 5 job to pursue what they love most, either being a homemaker, mothers or business woman. I will try to write regularly from this month
I remember my father used to tell me “As long as you can move your fingers you can earn a living” and how true it was.
I love making handmade stuff, from beadworks on scarf, cards, scrapbook, glass painting, to table. Well, it was an ugly kitchen table and I sort of cover it up with papers to make it into my study table, complete with the book racks. I wish I’ve taken the pics then..:(. I love to try different kind of craft..:D
Recently on my visit to my hometown, I met my ex-colleague who used to run a home furnishing shop. I went to her shop few years back and nothing had impressed me then. After 3 years, otw back to India I called her up and she told me she had something to show me. We met and she showed me her beautiful creations of patchwork bags and prayer mat. We keep YM-ing and FB-ing and one day I sort of tell her about Etsy. She showed me one of her latest creations : Interwoven cushion covers which really floored me! Her work is really neat and meticulous that you will fall in love instantly.
She works from one workshop near her house with only one helper. She does all the preliminary works from choosing the fabric, cutting and even stitching. What I marvel is, despite her family background, she chose to walk the unbeaten path to write her own story.
In the beginning of this month she officially opens her very own etsy shop and I’m very proud of her. I wish her all the best in her new ventures.
Thanks for reading this and have a wonderful weekends
