My Name is Carole, I have spent the past 22 years of my life raising my 3 wonderful children with my husband Michael, and taking care of my elderly parents. I have always admired artists and craftsmen, I would go to every craft fair around always thinking WOW how talented these people are. Well My parents passed away and my Children grew up and I found my self with lots of free time. Cleaning out my parents house I found lots of craft supplies and artificial wreaths. I decided to try to do something with it. I found I had this hidden talent. For the first few years I would make wreaths for my friends and Family for any occasion they wanted. My husband is the one who encouraged me to open a shop on Etsy. I love to work with all kinds of materials, artificial Flowers, leaves, foliage, sea shells, evergreen, grapevine, styrofoam,you name it. I love the challenge of a new material and what I can create with it. I love all the Holidays and I start creating for each holiday well in advance. My shop on Etsy has something for every holiday, If you don't see something you like I'm happy to make a custom order for you. I also have wreaths and other items to decorate your home year round. I am very grateful to be part of this wonderful community. Etsy, not only welcomed me into the artistic world, it has helped me with my creativity, and has introduced me to so many new friends and artists who are helpful and encouraging. I Love this new part of my life.
