Describe a typical day in your life.
Wake up, have my coffee, check my emails. If I have any orders I start them immediately. If not some days I make more items to sell for my shop, as well as for my nieces. Or I will go out and have lunch with a friend. Come back home and begin cooking dinner. Watch a movie with my spouse and crochet something.

Where can we find your products online?
