Welcome to Made It Happen Monday, where we bring you the stories of the people in the creative industry who have built a business and Made It Happen!  Today, we have Missy Luukkonen from The Little Green Bean.  Missy is one of these amazing women who can take a piece of scrap fabric and turn it into the cutest, most unique items for your home.  Plus, her sewing room is to die for!

  • Find your rhythm
  • Build a schedule and stick to it
  • Take a lunch and two 15 minute breaks
  • Remove cell phone from your craft area
