Hi, I'm Lucy. 

Wife, mom, jewelry maker/ *ahem*  bead hoarder,
and passionate marketing coach for makers at Bloom.

I started my handmade business in 2010, and after setting up my craft table in more school gyms, church basements, parking lots, and fairgrounds than I could count, I realized that I did NOT love the constant ‘weekend hustle’ of setting up at shows nearly as much as I loved meeting the people who would buy my work.

I had this idea that makers like me had to set up at markets and fairs to make money...which was soooo 1997! With social media, blogs, email, and websites, I had the power to reach beyond my little community craft show and expand my reach farther than I could have possibly imagined. 

Fast forward to today, where I have helped hundreds of makers find and connect with people who will actually buy, without having to pop up at a market every weekend.

I invite you to come on in and join the Bloom community: I’d love to tell you how I can help you find the people who will buy your stuff!

I'm intrigued: tell me more!
