I’ve been crocheting and braiding paracord for over 29 years. My family and friends encouraged me for many years to stop giving away the things I made. They were always saying "you put so much time and care in the things you make", you should go into business. I'll make a hat or a lap throw then send a picture to my children. When My grandchildren see what I've made they'll ask, "is that for me?", I'll say yes, but my children will say "no, it's not for you, she made it to sale." Because of my pushy and bossy kids, LOL, I've been selling my handmade items since 2009 to coworkers, friends, friends of friend.
