Nancy, tell us a little about yourself..

My inspiration is my Grandmother Luella.  She taught me how to sew and up-cycle items in and around her house into crafts.  So going to Grandmas to me was more of a treat than a torture.  She also loved bird watching in her backyard, and had many bird knick-nacks around her house.  This is all how my inspiration and shop name came about.  She passed away in 2001 from breast cancer, and my shop was named in her honor.

Poppy Brooch Hairclip - LOOOOVE this!
 I was born and raised in a small town in Indiana near the Ohio border, and we now reside in Gainesville, Florida.  My husband works for the University of Florida, and I'm continuing my college education at the university in the Fall.  I participate in local charity festivals for Luellabird every 3-4 months, and I'm also a vendor at the Downtown Union Street Gainesville Farmers Market every Wednesday. Luellabird is also sold in Persona (a vintage, costume, and collectible boutique) and Jeannie's Attic in Thornebrook Village (an upscale furniture and home decor store).

 I only create pieces that I would wear and treasure.  I guess you could say my Goddess necklace is what sparked my interest in starting my own Etsy shop.  I was at my usual coffee spot one morning, and the ladies there commented on my handmade necklace.  The comments continued, and then they asked me to start bringing them in pieces for them to shop from, and one thing lead to another... The pace of small business and the excitement of meeting new people and learning new crafts is exactly where I want to be!
