I started selling in my Etsy shop back in January of 2008 and was able to create a full fledged business shortly after. At that time, I was working a full-time job for the government and after 2-3 months of selling on Etsy, was able to put my notice in with my employer, left my job and started selling my handmade pieces full-time by May of 2008. I had often hoped (daydreamed?) to be a Featured Seller and was absolutely thrilled when I was contacted by the Etsy team.




Etsy has been an amazing venue for launching small handmade businesses. It's wonderful and inspiring to watch new businesses quickly take off and grow. I even encouraged my big sis to start an etsy shop of her own, and now that is basically what she's doing everyday. :)

After a short time, I launched my own off etsy online store and started getting a flood of wholesale requests. I curate my wholesalers to a manageable select list currently, until I have a few more workers, but it's been very exciting to build up a business from literally zero.




I currently have two contract workers (including my own mom!) and I think I've wrangled help from just about every relative I have at one point or another, but I have the most thanks going to my husband who has helped and supported me on my crazy venture these past few years.

I'm very excited for the future of Twigs & Honey as we've got lots in store for the future! I have so many secret projects that I promise to share once I can. Thank you so much to all the supporters and friends of Twigs & Honey AND thank you, Etsy!

    I saw your feature on the Etsy blog and then found your own blog.

    As my sister and also create and sell on Etsy, at times it is quite difficult to grow what you do, so I am always searching for inpiration and insiring handmade businesses - it is amazing that you have created a great niche and followed your passion - Bravo!

    Congratulations! I just discovered your blog and Etsy shop, and I love love love your hair pieces! So unique and beauitful! And I just need to mention that the name of your blog + shop is beautiful, I'm always looking out for great names but I never find true inspiration to come up with something like twigs and honey... I immediately think of a Greek island, with delicious food and beautiful nature..!

    Love, Lisa
