Laura Hakes of Fiddlestix Design
How did you get started in your craft?
I started crafting in hopes that some day I would be able to open my own business and stay home full-time. Still working on it, but getting closer every day! Would love to retire as a full-time crafter! My web site will soon be one year old and it's been great pursuing my dreams.
I have learned one very important thing over the last year..................
Owning your own business is difficult to say the least. But, if owning your own business is your dream, you've GOT TO DO IT! Just hang in there and enjoy the ride. For every difficult experience, there is a wonderful one that follows.
I have also learned that the crafting community is a loving and open community. Fellow crafters love to share and help you along the way.
And, thank goodness for web sites like PFATT Marketplace who provide us an avenue to share our creations!
What are your inspirations?
My family and close friends have always inspired me to pursue my dreams.
What are some of your favorite things?
I love spending time with my family, especially my new Grandson. I also enjoy spending time with my husband of 34 years. He is my rock, and puts up with my "nests" all over the house. You crafters know what I'm talking about
