“SOMETIMES THE EASIEST way to turn dreams into reality is simply to focus your energies on something you really love to do...” Barbara Brabec

Are you an artist, designer or "crafty" person? Then, don't believe people who tell you that you can't make a living as an artist or crafter - you can! Many people are enjoying living the life they choose and doing the work they choose and love.

There are a variety of outlets in which to find or sell arts and crafts, including the Internet, crafts fairs, direct-mail, e-bay and small local boutiques.

Thanks to the Internet, it is now easier than ever to find quality wholesalers from whom you can buy discounted supplies and raw goods to create your wares.
