Hello my name is Debra and like my products I am on my 2nd Wind professionally. In my first career I was a Registered Nurse. I worked as a nurse for 12 years before I left the profession to become a full time Mom. Now that my daughter is off to college I am trying my hand at a new career.
I have always enjoyed going to yard sales, estate sales, thrift stores and “curb side” shopping. But when I look at items, while thrift shopping, I rarely see them as they presently are, instead I see what they could be if given some time and attention. Because of this I have upcycled many things over the years from furniture to jewelry. So when I started considering what my next career would be I decided to try to find a way to combine my love of thrift shopping and my love of upcycling, it was out of that desire that 2nd Wind was born.
Whenever possible try to remember the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
