About CraftsRU

Hi there, my name is Gail. It’s a pleasure to meet you, and a privilege to get to show you my passion. I am the owner of CraftsRU, my personal site for the sale of my handcrafted jewelry and crafts. I’ve got two grown sons, and I have been retired for a few years now – that doesn’t mean I am done bringing joy into the world. I still have my crafts!

Crafting has been my joy outside of work for over two decades. It’s been my escape, therapy, and a creative outlet from the working as a licensed nurse. It’s important to be able slow down, relax, and focus on something that is entirely my own product. Through these years, I have developed a deep love and passion for creating handmade items, and I am excited to get to show you all I have learned.

Growing up, I always loved making things with my hands. Whether it was knitting, crocheting, or sewing, I was always experimenting with new crafts and techniques. When I had my children, I began making them clothes, toys, and accessories. I found so much joy in creating something unique and special for them, and it became a family affair as my kids often helped me pick out fabrics and colors.

As my children grew older and more independent, I found myself with more free time to pursue my passion for crafting. With the encouragement of my family and friends, I decided to take the leap and open my own craft shop. My goal is to create a space where people can come and be inspired by handmade crafts, and to provide the materials and resources they need to create something beautiful and meaningful.

I believe that crafting is not only a fun and creative outlet, but it also has therapeutic benefits. Crafting allows us to slow down, be present in the moment, and create something with our own hands. It’s a way to express ourselves and connect with others. I hope to inspire others to find the same joy and satisfaction that I have found in crafting, and to share my love for handmade crafts with my community.

Thank you for supporting my dream and allowing me to share my passion with you.
