About The Crafty Barista
kar·ma noun the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. Destiny. It all started out for me with candles. In 1999, I decided I couldn't find a store bought candle that I felt was worth my time, so I decided to create my own. Having had no previous "crafty" experience, I turned on my computer and did hours of research. My first candles weren't pretty, and some didn't smell good, but through trial and error, I finally got it right. Wax melts, and soaps came shortly after, and then I started dabbling in paper goods and jewelry, furniture and housewares soon followed. Being a military spouse, I wanted to be able to help support my family, so I focused on selling online for a while, first on Ebay, and then on Etsy. I searched for local outlets for my wares, but was never quite happy with my options, and of course, as is the life of a soldier's wife, we were always moving. I did all of these things out of my home, first in a kitchen, then a basement, then an attic, sometimes even in the yard, but all the while longing for a brick and mortar store to call my own. A few years ago, we finally settled for the long haul in Sanford, North Carolina, a quaint little town that I have grown to love, and I decided that I would do anything I could to *some day* realize my dream. Through a strange twist of fate, that some may call Karma, an empty storefront practically fell into my lap, so I clicked my heels and scrunched my nose, and jumped in!
