I started TnCrumpet in 2009 when I was laid off.  I had some money put away and was eligible for unemployment for up to two years.  My attitude was, and still is, "If I can work this hard for someone else, I can work this hard for myself." 

The problem was, as I am sure most new small business owners realize, even with money set aside your expenses remain the same.  They may even increase depending on what you're trying to accomplish.

Regretfully I returned to work in 2011 and put this venture on the back burner.  Fast forward to 2015...I am now retired.  Yippee!!  I rented out my second bedroom and with my retirement income, I was able to start working on my shop again.

All artwork is original and created by me.  All the needlework is also handmade by me.
