Tell us about yourself.
I live outside of Dayton, Ohio in a small town. It is the town that I lived in from Kindergarten till sixth grade so it was kind of like moving home when my husband and I moved here. I am a full time Mommy to a two-year-old little boy. I started making hairbows for my first niece and my god-daughter. I also do other crafts such as cross stitch and sewing....I hope to incorporate some of these items into my store at some point.
Describe yourself in 5 words.
Christian, teacher, mommy, wife, friend.
When and how did you first start crafting/creating?
My mum taught me to do counted cross stitch as a very young child.
What do you create and what are your favourite materials with which to work?
I work mostly with ribbon for my bows. I just like to combine different colours and add special touches to each bow. I also get ideas from friends and customers. My plastic blocks started because my husband's aunt had made them for them as kids and my nephew wanted one...this Christmas maybe I will make one for myself! I also did the name blocks and alphabet blocks because of my niece, nephew and god-daughter.
When and how did you start selling online?
My sister-in-law and friends encouraged me to start selling my bows online.
Describe your store in 5 words.
Colourful, creative...I am sorry, I can't think of any others at this time. (Deb: I would say cute, adorable, pretty and decorative).
