Creative hands-on organizer looking for entry level opportunity to expand skills and support the military.
Since 2008 I've hosted Christmas on the Hill, a large, upscale commission craft show at my home, designed and built specifically for this event. All my creative skills- painting, display, promotion, organization and problem solving, are utilized. Even in a down economy the show has grown exponentially, and last year I grossed over $20,000. Please visit my website, www.Christmashill.net, for a better perspective of the show.
