Hello all!

I'm Eric, Larissa's husband, and the other half of Reef Botanicals. I've heard great things about everyone here, and as a web guy I thought maybe I could help some of you out with some web stuff. I'll try to post some tips in the general forum!

Welcome Eric glad to see you here, trust me we all could use some tips. Plus we need more testosterone around here, these women are nuts! You should know you have to deal with Larissa! Enough Said ;D

Hello!
Here goes the introduction!
A year ago this month, I jumped into the crazy world of online selling by way of Etsy.  Somewhere along the line, with college, working on Wall Street for 14 years, and then being a stay at home Mom for 6 years,  the creative side of my brain was just sort of pushed to the side.  Luckily I was blessed with a family of "hard-to-buy-fors" and in an effort to find gifts that were unique and meaningful, I started making my own.  This really reignited my creative juices again!  It was a natural progression to incorporate my long time love of vintage and antiques (some may call it junk!) into my work.  Being a treasure seeker at heart, it melds my two of my favorite things into one!
So, a year later, I am having such a fantastic time being home with my two kids, being creative on a daily basis and being able to share what I do with others!

So excited to become a member of HAF and getting to know all of you....

Best,
Julie

Hello all.
I am Iryna. Couple months ago my friend tries to discard really old and ugly table. When I helped him I decided to take this and paint it. And I did it. I painted it and draw lighthouse on top. And now it is really nice table. Since that time I cant stop:-) I take old furniture and do some modifications:-) I will show it later.
I glad I found this forum - there are lot of useful information and tutorials, a lot of amazing crafts and nice peoples of course.
And sorry for my English - its not my native language.
