Introducing . . . CurlyGirlCrochet!

As a new blog feature, I am going to start featuring other indie crafters and artists, especially those who also sell on Etsy. For my first interview, I'm shining the spotlight on CurlyGirlCrochet who sells -- you guessed it! -- beautiful crocheted items.

(Sunflower Purse, $18 -- looks great in person!
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 There are so many incredible, handmade items there and so many nice people.

Thanks so much to Jodie for being my first victim! :)
