I’m Bobbie Carroll
indie crafter, small business owner, freelance writer, graphic designer, poet, frugal living ninja, nerdfighter
I am an idealist (INFP), and I believe that there is good in all people. I love working with children of all ages, elderly people, and anyone who has special needs. I hate injustice of any kind, and despise abuse in all its forms. I’ve been compared to Mary Poppins on too many occasions to count, but when I see someone being bullied or treated unfairly, the raging lioness comes out of me.
Like all people, I’ve had good times and bad times. I currently own my dream home – even though it needs a lot of work! It was my salvation and refuge when a family scandal managed to tear apart my marriage and almost broke me.
Now, I’m living my happily ever after – building a successful indie craft brand with the love of my life and helping other small business owners make their dreams come true. I still have hard days, but recovery from trauma is a life long battle – one I seek to share openly to help others facing life-altering changes.
My qualifications range from published poems and conference presentations to my parents’ glowing reviews and a young author’s trophy from the first grade.
