How did you get started on Etsy?
I started my Etsy shop in April, and I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I had no idea on how to promote my shop/items, and I had no idea about SEO.
What was your inspiration for your shop?
I don’t really have an inspiration. I just wanted to make cute things 🙂
What is your favorite shop item from your own shop and why?
This is my favorite item in my shop.
I was so sad when he got sold! My little sisters were too, so I ended up making a replica of him. They called him “baby blue bear”.
Here are some pictures of the replica: www.ravelry.com/projects/brickgirl16/timmy-the-teddy-bear a little different, but still cute.
How do you unwind when you’re not creating?
Well, I do knit (I am not currently selling knitted items, so it counts as “unwinding”). Also, I LOVE to swim. The last time I swam was Oct. 1st, and it was FREEZING. I also like to bike (which I haven’t done in forever).
List 3 of your favorite Etsy shops.
I love this shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/YouHadMeAtCrochet
And this one: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SouthernElite
And last, but not least: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Yokoo
How would you describe your work style?
Relaxing, enjoyable, and fun!
If you could choose any one superhero power, what would it be and why?
I always wanted to fly 🙂
If you knew then what you know now, what would you do differently in opening your Etsy store?
I would have added good tags to all of my items, taken multiple photos of my items, take my photos with the flash on my camera OFF, and added lots more items. And, I would promote my shop more, on teams on off of Etsy
