I'm Stacey, I love creating and crafting and own Stacey's Crafty Stuff- a handmade gift shop and online business.
I'm a single mum to two girls and also work part time. As you can guess, between parenting, working, running my business and creating new crafts I am extremely busy! Running a business is hard work and so is being a single parent....
AND I LOVE IT!!
I started Stacey's Crafty Stuff as a way to flex my creative muscles and to eventually fully support myself and my two girls whilst being able to be at home for my youngest. As she is definitely my last I want to treasure every second.
I can't describe how much I love making something with my own hands that I know someone will love and treasure. But what I CAN do is try and share some of the things I've learnt along the way.
I'll be starting with at least one blog post a month. I honestly couldn't pick one favourite craft and so this blog will be a mix of sewing, jewellery making, papercrafts, custom vinyl items, and wax melts. These are the types of things I sell in my shop and I'll be happy to share tutorials, hints and tips!
On top of all this I'll be blogging about things I don't sell but still love! Birthday cake idea's, DIY, recipes, bath and beauty items and stuffed toys are just a few things that come to mind straight away.
I'm hoping this blog will become popular and I'll find the time to write more often. I'm hoping to share my own sewing patterns, SVG's and unique crafts. I'm hoping to drive traffic to my website and increase my sales. I'm hoping to keep doing what I love and support my family.
Most importantly, I'm hoping to have fun and help others to have fun with crafts too!
