About the Book
Are you creative
and always thinking of another way to make something look better?
Do you dream of awakening each day and bouncing out of bed, excited
about what the day may hold for you? Do you envision only having
to go as far as the other end of the house or yard as your commute
to work? Do you want to use your time each day as you choose, and
not because a boss is telling you what to do? If you answered yes
to these questions, then owning and operating your own craft business
may be just what you're looking for!

annual survey states that sales in the U.S. craft industry rose
to over $10 billion dollars in the late 1990's and continues to
increase each year! Owning and operating a home-based business is
the American dream, and for those who have creative talents, it
can be within your reach.
