Hello Crafters, hobbyists and DIY geeks. I’m Gwen Warner and in 2016, I started Three Cats Crafts, the “Cat’s Meow of Crafting Ideas.” My hope was to share the wonderful crafting and DIY ideas I came across on the internet and my approach to making them. I sent out a welcome letter and thought I was on my way. Posted a second story and then it was over. Turns out it was a little more difficult than I had anticipated. That was two years ago and so much has changed in my life.
I moved back to “Nothing could be finer than Harleyville, South Carolina.” The move was partly because I was homesick, but also to be there for my mom, Peggy Wolfe. Life took over and the website was put on hold – until now! I put my focus back on my internet venture and working from home. This opportunity works out great for my mom and I, because I can be here with her and still make a decent living. (Not getting rich, mind you.)
So, I decided to send out a second “Welcome to Three Cats Crafts” letter to start anew. It seems so long ago since I posted my first letter and so much has changed. My goals are the same , though, and I am more determined to make TCC a site where crafters can get creative ideas and easy to follow instructions, plus any freebies I come across. I have upgraded the site to allow my friends, family and neighbors to sell their handmade goods all across the world. This was always a goal for TCC, but now it is a reality. It doesn’t feel the same as when I owned The Craft Factory, in Santee, SC, but it is a more modern time now. I must learn to roll with the flow, before I get swept up in the rush. I do miss the brick and mortar store environment, though. I got to meet so many people who enjoyed the creative process. As I begin to interview locals about their favorite hobbies and talents they’ve developed, I know I will get to meet so many new people (new Friends). My intention is to highlight their goods and spread some Southern hospitality. Along the way, I want to offer unique crafting supplies from across the web. Where ever my fingers take me.
You will notice the site go through several changes as I get accustomed to managing it, but I hope you sign up with Three Cats Crafts and grow with us. Your feedback is always welcome. I have a thick skin and welcome the positive, as well as, the negative. Just don’t be cruel, please. I do have feelings. If you would like to see a certain craft or supply, let me know. If you have a crafting question, ask, I will try to find the answer and email or post what I find out. I want to serve the crafting community and be as much help as I can. I look forward to this opportunity with you and hope you find what you need in the coming months. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you at the next post.
