Here’s an interview with her so you can learn more!
A little about you…..
1) Where do you live?
I live in Wilmington, NC with my awesome husband, beautiful “almost one-year-old” daughter, and our two crazy dogs. We moved here in 2007 and love living by the beach, although we don’t get there often enough!
2) What is your background in? (former job or study in school)
I recently resigned from my position as a high school counselor to stay home with Clara. It was a great job and very rewarding at times, but my new job is way better J Prior to counseling, I was a graphic designer. I love being creative and definitely missed that aspect of the job once I left the field.
3) What items do you sell in your etsy store?
I seem to have a little bit of everything right now… I started out with the nursery décor, but I also love photography and have always loved quotes and inspirational sayings. Reading encouraging words throughout the day always puts me in a positive mood. I even sell sets of thank you cards.
4) How long have you been making your creations?
The ideas for my store started when we were decorating my daughter’s nursery. I wanted it to be colorful, happy, and unique! I started making my stuff last summer, opening my store right after Thanksgiving.
5) Can any of your items by personalized?
Most of my items are designed to be personalized. The room décor spells out your child’s name and I am open to working on new themes and designs for anyone interested.
6) What items have become best sellers?
My best seller is the name written in sand. My daughter’s room is a beach theme and that’s where I came up with the idea. I guess others like it too!
7) How many hours a day do you devote to filling etsy orders?
Hours? Hmmm… not many so far. I hope to be spending more time filling orders soon, but currently I try to work on new ideas and find ways to market myself. I often end up shopping on Etsy because there are so many talented people selling one-of-a-kind items J
