I have always been in the creative sector my high school jobs included working for both a photographer and for a flower shop which held my interest for more than 30 years. I opened my first flower shop along with my mom at 19. I moved and opened another shop that I soon turned into a design school. The only one between Denver and Seattle. I loved teaching people to open their own shops or go to work in one. My why was I needed to provide for my family and my purpose was there was a need, and I could fill it.

My family has grown to include wives and Grand-Kids. They are taking care of themselves so my why and purpose has changed. I have learned to be ready to see the opportunities when presented and be able to change when need be.

Why start The Creative Crafter: I want the freedom to work for myself when and where I need to be, I want to share the gifts that I have been given to make beautiful things and I want the ability to share my faith with those who want to hear how blessed we are. My whys give me the purpose I need to fulfill my heart.

Who is Tammy? A daughter, mom to 2 boys, 5 granddaughters, and Bonus mom to 1 daughter, a creator, a teacher, a child of God.

I look forward to sharing my journey with you through this virtual world. Join me in these classes where I share my projects with instructions along this adventure. I also invite you to share your whys and creations with me here.
