I started my first online business (an e-bay shop selling vintage clothing) from a corner of my tiny apartment bedroom in the spring of 2005. Soon after, I started making jewelry to cure the creative boredom I was suffering from the dull days of my 9-5 customer service job. I eventually started selling that online too in a shop I built from scratch with a will, a way and a Guide to Dreamweaver book in my lap.
I started CraftLeftovers.com back in 2006 as a way to keep myself accountable to using up my leftover craft supplies and ever growing stash. Now five years later, it’s a place for others to find patterns, resources, and inspiration to use what is on hand too!
