About the Owner
Whitney started Stirred & Strung because of her love for crafting and baking.
She started making beaded jewelry in the late 1990s, as a pre-teen; she also dabbled in sewing and candle making. But ,after a few years, she lost interest when other hobbies, like volunteering for local animal shelters and breeding reptiles, took precedence over crafting. She sold all her beads and jewelry making supplies.
In 2010, she returned to making jewelry as a means of relaxing, and began scouring the internet for good quality and low priced supplies. Being older with more money to expend on hobbies, she was able to start a good collection of supplies quickly. She even started fiddling with polymer clay and even designing picture frames for gifts.
In 2011, she opened her Etsy store, but lost interest after a while when it became harder and harder to compete with all the other jewelry makers.
In 2014, Whitney knew it was time to use her skills in blogging, digital marketing and social media to good use. She had been writing and managing for her own websites since 2007, as well as writing freelance for a few websites, but she wanted to turn her craft hobby into something more.
She wanted a place where she could talk about crafting, give tips and learn more herself. She also wanted to sell her own crafts (and one day baked goods), as well as sell products from other artisans in the United States.
After several bad names and a revamp of her Etsy store, she created Stirred & Strung.
