Tell me two (or more!) interesting things about you.
Well, I got married on the island of Santorina, Greece with only four of my closet family and friends. It was perfect! Recently, I got my Fortune Tootsies into the holiday catalog of Femail Creations.
To which Etsy Street Teams do you belong? Team Idaho, EtsyMom.
What do you sell in your Etsy shop?
Simplymilk - Breastfeeding Care Kit
Fortune Tootsies - Lucky Baby Socks
Fortune Onesies - Lucky shirts
What inspires your creations?
Everyday life and the drive to create something new and useful.
Tell me a bit about your creative process and/or how you learned to do what you do.
I have learned that I just have to get my idea out to the masses. I do lots of journal - drawings to think out my next idea. But I love to create things, and wish I had more time to do just that!! Wouldn't that be lovely!! I also think that networking with other creative moms help keep up my motivation.
What is your favorite item in your shop (currently for sale or previously sold)? Why is it your favorite?
I would have to say the Simplymilk, because that is my first product that I developed with new moms in-mind. It has a soft spot in my heart!
But my Fortune Tootsies are the best seller. People love them!
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself? Creative, not-enough-time, mom
What do you like about Etsy? I love Etsy because of all the creative energy! I love just looking around at all the great stuff, some really talented group of people.
What makes your shop unique? We'll you won't find my cards anywhere else. I do sell the other product in other online stores.
What advice do you have for other folks selling or buying on Etsy? Just do what your heart wants. Because that is reward itself!
