Several years ago now, I reconnected with my Cherokee roots. Those who read my original blog followed me on my journey of learning, self-discovery, and change. Reconnecting with my roots has changed me for the better and helped me to find my true self.
And after reconnecting with my roots, I began to make Dreamcatchers. My mother made them years ago when I was only a little kid. She had also sold them for a time. I went to my mother and asked her to teach me how to make Dreamcatchers.
Once I learned how I found them not hard to make. The process, for me, is fun, relaxing, and even gives me time to reflect on many things.
I began by selling the items on my blog that was once on Xanga. I did that for a few years and in early 2012, I started researching places online where I could sell my Dreamcatchers.
I considered Etsy, Amazon, and eBay before finally deciding on Webstore.com. They don’t charge fees and so I went with them because it would allow me to continue to sell my crafts at reasonable prices.
I chose the name Tsalagi Dreams for my online store. Tsalagi, in case you’re wondering, means Cherokee.
I have sold my Dreamcatchers through Webstore since 2012.
And I have continuously added new items as well as uniquely designed Dreamcatchers to my item selection.
What originally started as a way to connect with my roots, turned into something I love doing. I am happy that I can offer my items for sale and I hope you will consider buying.
