Welcome :) I'm always happy to share my story! 
Once upon a time, I had 1 big noisy child, and 2 small noisy children, (still noisy, just and I was in desperate need for quiet book patterns. I couldn't find any that I LOVED, so... I drew my own! Not too successful, as they were way too complicated, but I had HUGE feedback on my art work. 
So, my happy ending began with a blog :) I started out posting free images daily, and within a week, I had over 100 followers! I was thrilled! Slowly as my art work has improved, so have my opportunities! Etsy is just another step in achieving my dream. I have become a successful illustrator! I am so blessed to have had many willing to help me on my path, and am grateful for every single person who has visited my shop, blog, and offered requests and suggestions along the way.
I LOVE this "job"!

Ann-Marie from Annemis

I’m 50 years young and live in the south of Sweden with my hubby and 4 teenage boys.
My blogname “Annemi” is from an aunt of mine who used to call me Annemi when I was little and she kept on calling me that her whole life so the blogname is a celebration to her.
I’ve been crafting in one way or another my entire life but I didn’t have a name on it before... lol
Nowdays I’m a color addict delux, I color almost every day of the week and I think I’ve tried almost every medium there is.  Coloring are so relaxing for me and I really enjoy it.
Hope you like my card - Have a great day
Hugs, Ann-Marie/Annemi
