I bought one for my sister's ninth birthday.)
If you're looking for a lovely, unique item and wonderful customer service, she's definitely someone to check out. So onto the interview . . .
1. Tell us about yourself.
Hello! My name is Jodie and I'm 39 years old. I'm from Byron Center, Michigan, and I opened my Etsy Shop in March 2007.
2. When did you start crocheting and why?
I started crocheting around age 11. It was fascinating to watch my Grandma crochet and see the beautiful creations she made with yarn and a hook. Ever since then, I've been hooked, so to speak!
3. What is your biggest art/craft inspiration?
I am inspired by things I see, hear, or read about. A color, object, or discussion might generate an idea for a project. I never know what's going to inspire me.
4. Why did you decide to start selling what you make?
I decided to start selling the things I crochet as a way to share my creations with others and to hopefuly make a little profit while doing so. I love it when a customer tells me they love their item.
5. Do you sell any where else?
Yes, I've sold on eBay as well, but I much prefer Etsy!
6. Anything else you'd like to tell us?
I hope everyone gets a chance to visit www.Etsy.com. There are so many incredible, handmade items there and so many nice people.
Thanks so much to Jodie for being my first victim! :)
