I've been sewing and crafting since I was a wee one.
My mom wouldn't let me use her sewing machine until I was 10 years old.
So everything before that was handmade.
My first venture into selling our handmade items was at a craft fair,
sponsored by our daughters' elementary school PTA...
There were tables set up around the gym for the crafters,
and the PTA sold homemade soups for lunch.
I was hooked...
I had to come up with a name...
"Tins and Treasures", it was.
My decorative tins created from recycled food cans
are perhaps some of our most unique items.
And then everything else falls into the category of "Treasures", right?!
My "Crafting ADD" probably explains why I have such a collection of items in my shop.
I like to sew, knit, crochet, paint, and hot glue!
Even, my hubby has gotten into the action.
He has an awesome set of power tools out in the shop.
The best seller at our local arts festival, is his Wine Bottle Necklace.
He can get a couple made during a football game in the fall
(depending on how close the game is, of course).
My Infinity Scarves are a hot item too.
Waiting to be finished and listed are these owls.
I started them last fall, before I broke both of my wrists...
and now, just getting back into my studio.
