What is your name?
Where are you located?
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a SAHM of two boys (6 and 3) and a little girl (almost 2), they keep me busy, along with my husband! I love being outdoors whether it is running, biking, hiking, playing with the kids, or just enjoying an after-dinner cocktail!
What type of merchandise will shoppers find in your shop?
Crocheted hats for babies and children
|Flower Hat - Cream 3-6 months|
How/why did you get started?
When I had my daughter, I made a cute hat with interchangeable flowers. Everyone loved it and I had many requests to make and sell them. After making several and enjoying the process so much, I decided to give Etsy a shot. Now, six months later I am still here and keeping busy. I love the fact that I can have my "business" but still be home with my children, which is my top priority!
How long have you been crafting? Who taught you crochet?
As a young girl, my great grandmother taught me the art of crocheting. I have been developing my skills since, I guess I would have to say 20 years (boy that makes me feel old).
What is your favorite thing to make?
Newborn hats for photographers! Mostly because they share their images, and I just melt everytime I see them.
What inspires you to create?
I have to say my kids!
What is one thing you need to have with you while you craft?
Other than the obvious (yarn, hook), I would say my coffee!
|Zoo Collection Elephant Set|
What are your favorite materials to work with?
Any yarn! It is what you create with it that makes it exciting.
How do you balance mothering and running a small business?
Some days this is a struggle, but I try to keep my "creating" time in the evenings while the kids are in bed.
What is your favorite thing to browse Etsy for?
|Soft Shells Vintage Hat with Flower|
When you're not crafting, what are you doing?
Playing with kids, cleaning, cooking, cleaning, exercising, cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning (it just never ends).
