I have always enjoyed arts and crafts projects.
In fact, I excelled in the 4-H club in Middle School.
I worked on many different craft projects during High school. It didn’t take long, before I realized that my passion was making jewelry. I started making jewelry from metal, plastic, and textiles. At first, I sold my crafts online. I didn’t have my own website, but my friends and family could purchase items from my Facebook page. When the crafts became a huge hit with my friends friend’s, I decided to open a small craft store in the village. I found a place with really cheap rent. They only wanted $500 a month, but I had to deal with some pretty awful indoor air problems. Since most of the places were $800 or $1,000 a month to rent, I decided to work with the indoor air quality issues. The first thing I did was buy a portable dehumidifier. There was a lot of moisture in the air, and the air conditioner wasn’t removing it fast enough. I didn’t want to bring any metal crafts into the space, while there was still a great deal of moisture in the air. Everyone knows that moisture will cause rust in a matter of minutes. I ran the dehumidifier for a few days, and it really helped the indoor atmosphere. By the fourth day, the humidity levels were decreased by 25%. That’s when I started transferring my jewelry, supplies, and craft kits. I still keep the dehumidifier for emergency use. Sometimes the heat is awful, and the dehumidifier really helps with the air problems.
