Hi, I'm Nancy and I run an Etsy shop called goshery - as in "oh my gosh I have to have that"!
I started my shop a few years ago when my daughter (my only child) decided to attend college in Oregon . . . and we live in Minnesota. Needless to say I had some extra time on my hands and a need to keep busy. Since I love making things with paper I decided to open up shop.
Once my shop was open I had to find a way to get the word out so that people would visit my shop so I started a blog. Originally I used this blog as a place to write about new products and share ideas about craft projects but soon I found myself talking about organization, vacations and other things going on in my life.
My day job is in Human Resources at a medical device company just a mile from my home. Five years ago I received my SPHR (Senior Profession in Human Resources) certification by studying hard and taking an incredibly difficult test. I've been working for the same company for 21 years and I feel fortunate to have a job I love so close to home. I'm also the hand model for our company advertising!
Here in Minnesota the winter months are long and cold, which means that I can spend many hours in my craft room since it's too cold to be outside. A perfect day for me involves sleeping in and doing craft projects.
Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you will take some time to click on the links and to visit my Etsy shop.
