A Little About Me…
Hey there Y’all! I’m Joanne Wick and I’m so happy to see you made it to my website. Grab a comfy seat and let me tell ya about myself and the business. I’m the owner and head creator here at The Crafty Cottage DIY. I love creating and inspiring others to create beautiful things for their home. I get so excited at every chance I get to share my love of crafting with others. I’m a crafting and DIY junkie!! I’ve done just about every type of crafting you can think of. From paper crafts, to crochet, to multi-media art, I have a Cricut, and a Glowforge so I love mixing the two to make unique things.
I’m a mom of two grown daughters Brianna and Keri who I am very proud of. I have two grandchildren; my Sweet little Emma bug is 3 and my adorable Grandson Greyson is 3 months. My family is my whole reason I never give up on the bad days when I so badly want to throw in the towel.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart and love of my life Brian for the past 28 years. Although he drives me absolutely insane at times, I love him more dearly!! He is my biggest supporter and is a fan of all my chaos, even when it’s taking over our home, (which it often does)! He is also the 2nd half of The Crafty Cottage DIY and responsible for a lot of the behind-the-scenes things that you don’t get to see. Brian and I both are from Ohio where we started our family, but we moved here to South Carolina with our 2-year-old daughter Brianna in 1997, we loved being near the ocean and have been here ever since.
I have also been an animal lover all of my life. I love animals of all kinds, but I especially love my fur babies. Currently, we have two cats, two dogs! I also love being outside, gardening, cookouts, floating in our swimming pool, spending time with family, born fires on the cool evenings. Sitting out in my back yard at night when the sky is clear and looking at the stars, and constellations. That’s what makes my soul happy.
I thank God every day for putting me on this journey to have my own business and for how well it is doing and… I never ever thought I would be online sharing my love of crafting and DIYing with all of you!! Or even have my own booth where I can display and sell my pieces locally. God knew what was in my heart and that was getting me out of that awful job that was breaking my back and my spirit. Allowing me to work from home. I wanted to be able to give back to my husband who has worked so hard for so many years to provide for our daughters and me. I wanted to see him not have to work so hard and not miss out on things with our grandchildren as he did in the past with our daugters
So that’s my story y’all. I hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by to read it and I wish you all a wonderful, safe, and blessed day!!
