At the end of the day we all want to feel awesome about the work we do, the life we live and believe that what we create with imagination is magical.
I started my art business in 2005, after years and years of giving away my handmade creations as gifts for special occasions. I made personalized doilies as a weeding gift, crochet blankets as birthday gifts and plastic canvas crossstitch samplers for Christmas. Then out of a need to not only hoard my creations but a need to stay home with my three boys (one of which is a special needs kid), I started “Hippies Creations” that rebranded as “Three Times Chaos” in 2015.
During that time, I vended at craftshows and farmer’s markets, sold on etsy and other onlien markets before moving to my own website. I started a brick + mortar art store to sell the handmade creations of local artists in a small community but closed it because it didn’t give me the freedom I wanted. What it did give me is recognizing my passion about creating a handmade life and helping other’s do the same.
On the blog, you’ll find practical tips for a handmade life and inspirations for creating gifsts for friends and family as well as starting your own business.
I’m an artist, author and creative consultant. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting and a Master’s of Science in Mental Health Counseling – having tried to live a normal live a time or two. But I also have years of experience of creating a handmade lfie, falling my own inner calling and passions.
I’m currently working on a Horror Pyrography Series for Fearfest 2020 in West Virginia, and my first fiction novel bridging genres of crime, mystery and the paranormal. I’m also the Founder of The Rebels Den, where I sahre with you all things life and business to do live your way!
When I’m not working, you may find me doing couch gymnastics reading a book, playing soccer or go to concerts to rock out to my hearts content.
