From Charlotte Gray, owner of Victoria Charlotte Treasures
The short of it...I just really like creating!
How I got here is just a bit longer... I have been married for a long time and have three wonderful grown daughters (and their wonderful husbands) and seven GRAND children. I retired five years ago after working in education and human services and now live on a beautiful island in Washington state.
There is something about living in this area that encourages creativity...perhaps because it can be pretty rainy in the winter (therefore oodles of time to create) but also because it is just a beautiful place which inspires beauty. When you move to Whidbey Island people welcome you by saying "welcome to paradise!"
So...now I make stuff. Currently I am experimenting with mosaic art and I continue to make soldered glass jewelry and charms. I also have a great time altering tins. So you ask me "what do you do in your spare time?" I can answer..."well, one of my pleasures is making little treasure boxes from Altoid mint tins." Now, isn't that just a bit fun - or what?
What I like about having my little ETSY shop is that it gives me an opportunity to experiment and show others the little things I make. Please feel free to "convo" me any time with any question you have about this shop.
One of my daughters - Vicki - has put together a little facebook fan club that you might just want to check out every so often....
