My husband and I relocated from the bustling city of Woodstock, Georgia in 2000 to Ellijay, Georgia. We so wanted to slow our pace, and what better place to do that than up here in the mountains of North Georgia where creative folks thrive! We opened our very own retail business, Cottage Interiors. It was a fabric shop devoted to quilting and drapery making. It held its own and prospered until the year 2005. Although that business closed, we still are entrepreneurs. My husband owns and operates an Air Duct Cleaning service business and continues to try his hand at creative writing, compiling a book of poetry for publication in the near future. If I’m not out working for others around their homes, then you’ll find me busy in my Sewing Studio, working on new creations to sell at the local shops and markets.


and away we GO!

I registered with, so I could comment on an existing post on the NORGA Etsy Team website (, and suddenly I am creating my own blog website and writing my first blog ever.

So here we go!

I run an Etsy shop called Green Craft Studio. I work from home, sewing products that I design and sell on Etsy. When I was just a teeny bopper growing up in the 70’s, my mom sewed from home. She designed and fabricated costumes for a rock band. How cool is that, right? I thought it was real cool, but I had no idea how much work went into those costumes–most of Mom’s sewing happened after all the family went to sleep. I’d like to think that my products are real cool, just as cool as what mom did in the 70’s, but I’ll let my readers be the judge of that. I guess that’s why you see the 70’s influence on my favorite item, the Hip2Bsquare BoHo Bag. It is the most popular item I make. It is a beautiful purse that holds everything but the kitchen sink.  I get custom requests for it all the time. It happens to be my favorite thing to make, too.

So, I thought it should be featured in my first Studio Blog… see more at my website: and see more products made in North Georgia U.S.A. at (NORGA/North Georgia Etsy team members featured there.)
