Meet Debbie

Meet Debbie, she's the lady behind Toadily Handmade by Debbie Hughes!

Ice Cream is her favorite food, and Purple is her favorite color! Making crafts is her favorite thing to do.. :)

Debbie's story may be about financial reasons but her crafting is helping them greatly! Debbie's husband lost his job, and they got tight on money. They went from a very good income to one low income, when with two young teenagers wanting everything that was popular and latest styles they were pressured to find another source of income. When everything started for her starts here.. Debbie's husband came home with a pair of homemade earrings for her and she says he says "everyone has $5.00 to make themselves feel good". Debbie has always made her own cards, scrapbooks, and more. Thus, she would try to make her own jewelry to make some few extra dollars not much, but she found that she could make jewelry. Debbie packed up her a small table and went to the local trade day and sold two items a grand total of $22.00. She went home a little heart broken but she started on looking for something a little bit better, and made bottle cap necklaces, earrings, bows, and bow holders. Sooner rather than later she had received a permanent booth and was asked for by people coming to the trade day, asking "Where is the bottle cap lady?" From that day on, she has been growing, with 245 fans it's wonderful! There is no need to over price just as long as she can make a little extra to pay bills. She loves what she does and she loves her customers for making Toadily Handmade by Debbie Hughes possible!

Favorite Quote and saying is: "God is good all the time and all the time God is good." Stop on in and say Hi! :) Great items, and a Great lady! Let her know you saw her on MTB! Have a great day!
