If I was to tell you I had done it purely for the money and to solely make a living then i'd be telling you fibs. I would have given up on it a long time ago if that was the case and chosen a field much easier to make money from rather than in the creative business.
I couldn't imagine my life without crafting. It has always been in me and it always will.
What I have loved most so far about running my hobby business is the feedback that i have been receiving from my orders. When I send a preview to a customer of their finished card, there is nothing better than when they reply to tell you how much they love it and how excited they are to give it to the recipient, it's just the best thing ever and really makes my day.
That alone is the main reason I do this and what makes it all so worth while. I'm not changing the world by all means but it gives me an enormous sense of welbeing to know that a little card has made someone happy and will hopefully make whoever they give it to happy as well.
