What do you make? How did you get into it?
We started doing customized wall decals for [the] home, then we ventured into designing pillows and handmade tote bags, [along with] hand painted pouches and ponytails for our first art fair which was 10a Alabama arts and crafts last 2012.

Now we [have] expanded in making originally designed temporary tattoos, just because I want to get a real one.
