Yes - New Jersey ArtFire/Guildmaster, Steampunk Artists of Art Fire, Verified Artfire Seller Guild, SRAJD Members, HAF Artfire Guild & EtsyNJ

Please provide a link to ONE of your favorite Artfire shops.
I shop AF quite a bit; soaps, candles, supplies - but my Favorite is Creative Critters. I just bought a cute handmade catnip filled mouse that actually made my cat move! Must be some fresh catnip in there!

Tell me something interesting about you or your shop.
Born here, I am fluent in French and Russian, and have spent many years volunteering, working and teaching in the school system with Special Needs Multiple Disability children - both in New Jersey and Florida. I retired my service when my own children became older, my business grew and life became more demanding with their activities. I'm a married full time Mom with teenagers also!
