About Me

Hi! My name is Pammy and I live in Sacramento, California.  I enjoy crafting –such as sewing, cross-stitching, knitting, crocheting, needle felting, using different types of clay, and mixing resin to make accessories and projects. Crafting used to be a “hobby” as I made bears, doll and fur baby clothing, cellphone cases and jewelries for my family & friends. I also made myself some necklaces and bracelets, some wallet, a quilt, etc. ... it was something that I did when I had time.


Now, I have made crafting my full-time profession.  Although I have years of training in software consulting and technical support, I realized that crafting is my relaxing regime, it has always been something that came naturally to me and I want to share my passion with everyone. 


All images below are some of my artwork projects in the past...


I handcrafted my hubby a replica of his precious pals, these are KC, Billy and Bruce!

Creating this website is the start of my new journey in crafting -creative endeavors and I include more about blogging, making money, and the sharing of resources!  But, before I got to this point, I spent a lot of time researching on how I could also support this career change.   

I found countless websites that promised to provide cash and money-making tips by working from home. Unfortunately, many of these websites were scams…but, fortunately, I was able to avoid falling victim to them. It is always hard to know which websites to trust, especially when they look legitimate.

One of my goals for this website is to also share what I have learned on how to start a home business by doing what you love. For me, that is crafting! Through this website, you will be able to follow me as I build my home business from start to finish. You will also see my website change as I learn how to develop it.

Although many of my posts and photos will also feature my crafting skills, techniques, and projects, I will also post everyday tips on how to make life easier! I am not an expert but look for posts on making-saving money, inspirational, how-to guides, health and beauty, shopping, freebies, technoloy, product reviews and, of course, blogging. I will also share other helpful websites and resources that worked for me.

The website “Joyful Source” was inspired by my husband, Joy. I started crafting
when I was in college, but it wasn’t until recently (when Joy encouraged me) that I started again, we launched Joyfully Handcrafted page from Facebook where I make


jewelries, hair clips, hats, bows, stuffed animals, dolls, party favors, holiday decorations, key chains, miniature collectibles and anything that you can imagine! Everything is handmade from my home studio.

Also, I want to thank those who share my posts, gives comment and likes as you keep me inspired.

Please feel free to contact me at pammy@joyfulsource.com for any questions or comments.


Thank you for visiting my website! 


Joyful Cheers,
