How did you first get started on Etsy?
I saw a post on my fb wall and followed the link. I was looking for a way to work out of the home and thought this would be a great idea.
What is your inspiration for your shop?
I am an old fashioned, low key kind of gal, so my shop is more on the practical side. Useful, but well-made.
What is your favorite item from your own shop and why?
I’d have to go with my Ode To Coffee Pillow Cover. I love coffee, I love buttons, and I really like the way the fabric sparkles.
How do you unwind when you’re not creating?
I like to read. Just finished “START”, by Jon Acuff. Next on the list “Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook.”

How would you describe your work style?
I have ADD work style. I try to be organized and methodical, but the truth is I have a gazillion ideas I’d like to try, and many items in various stages of completion. I’ll work on one thing for a while, then work on something else. I could never have just one item (like aprons, or pillow covers) in my shop.
If you could choose any one superhero power, what would it be and why?
Super-intelligence, because then I could figure out what I need to do to be successful and I could share that knowledge with all my friends.
If you knew then what you know now, what would you do differently in opening your shop?
I’m still working on that one. I do know a lot more now than I did, but I feel like I still have a lot more growing to do.
