Our Story

Welcome to The Autumn Acorn + Craft A Living

I started my career as a licensed teacher but found it difficult to navigate that world as an introverted HSP (Highly Sensitive Person). It was utterly exhausting and to be honest, was slowly killing me. Making the decision to work from home and to start an online creative business (selling my naturally hand-dyed yarns) was NOT easy but it was definitely the best decision for me.

Now I’m ready to take everything I’ve learned over the years (the hard way) and show other creative introverts and HSP’s how to start and run their own creative business WITHOUT all the stress!

If you’re ready to take back your life, there’s NO better time than now. Starting your very own online business has never been easier and I’m here to hold your hand and gently walk you through the whole thing.

    Oh Dear sweet Judy, this newsletter is so lovely. I’m glad you linked me in on it. I love that you left teaching ( I adored teaching primary school too and love children but follow my heart into other things now) and furthered your dyeing and knitting.
    It was wonderful to see Joe’s handsome face. He has such kind eyes and that smile!! Yes, you’re a gorgeous pair for sure. Here’s to more podcasts and more yarnie goodness. Love Lu in Australia xx
