Spotlight on Shopaholic Chick

This is one industrious girl! Here's her story . .

My store is an odd collection of things I like and things my friends liked and asked me to make for them.  I am a bit of a perfectionist so if they asked for something I would make 5-10 versions of what they asked for - and it would become a section in my shop - and sometimes a whole new shop!!  My "B is for Birds" shop started because my friends 2 yr old son was in love with flamingos and she could not find him a boy t-shirt with a flamingo - so I made a shop starting with them - it just exploded from there!

My stores:  

shopaholicchick - I love this because i think the environment is very imporant and reusable grocery bags and shopping bags are great for the planet! Live Green Bag
Graduation Station - I love this card it has an old man on the front with his diploma and say on the front "I heard you were graduating and I just wanted to say..." and inside it has "took you long enough!" - it is funny for someone who has been studying a long time to finish their degree - or decided to go back to school after retirement
