Green Life Smart Life

My favorite find in 2009 was without a doubt Etsy – the online shopping mecca for anything and everything handmade. I have been making handmade cards for about 10 years and have always relied on friends and family to support my hobby. My good friend/co-worker Ashley turned me on to Etsy last year and I finally took the plunge and opened my store, designsbybeccashop , for business in June 2009.
