Sometimes, after a lifetime of working for someone else, people can transform their childhood hobbies into businesses in their “retirement” years:
The moment Robbie Crawford touched a calligraphy pen to paper, she fell in love with the beautiful form of handwritten expression.
That was more than 30 years ago.
Now, at the age of 60 and after 36 years in nursing, Crawford has finally chosen to do what she loves.
She retired from her nursing career in September to start her own full-time calligraphy and engraving business out of her Tallassee home in Blount County.
“I decided when I retire that I would do something I would love to do for the rest of my life,” Crawford said. “This is so much fun, so much fun.”
