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.
