Valentine's Day 2014 I decided to start my own business selling handcrafted wallets, tote bags and purses. For years I had made bags & wallets for friends & family birthdays, graduations, and Christmas gifts. Everyone kept telling me I should go into business for myself. Finally, I said "why not?".
The name of my business "Inspired by Liz" is in memory of my mom who taught me how to sew. I knew I wanted to incorporate my mom into my business. Coming up with a name that wasn't taken was the hard part. My husband, Danny, came up with the name.
There have been ups and downs. Sales at craft fairs have been minimal but a great way to meet people and get ideas for crafts that I can add to my inventory.
