Read ahead to learn more about this talented shop, and see how to enter for your chance to win!
I was a knitter to start. I began knitting when I was in my teens - mostly scarves. I still enjoy it and currently have been working on some colorful knitted dog collar covers that I hope to add to the shop. I've also done traditional rug hooking, needle felting and polymer clay work then I discovered knot work and really love it.
Do you work outside of your Etsy shop? If so, how do you find time for both?
I do. I work full-time 9-5. I do my craft work in the evenings and on weekends but throughout the day I'm always thinking of the next new craft project to start on.
How did you learn about Etsy?
I stumbled upon it about 3 years ago.
When did you start your shop?
I opened my shop in November 2010 but only had a few collars listed and didn't really focus on it. I eventually started making more collars and started to add more items late last summer.
Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
From my 3 cocker spaniels, Beau, Belle & Ben! They even agreed to model a few collars in my Etsy shop (for treats of course). I've always been a collar collector and really like unique dog items. The more colorful the better! Dogs and crafting are two of my favorite things so my collars were fun to make and ended up being very functional too. My dogs wore their collars for over a year before I started selling them.
Do you have advice for any shops just starting?
Great photos. I'm still working on mine.
Do you have a Facebook fan page? Twitter?
Fun Questions to Get to Know You:
What is the furthest place you have traveled?
Tulum, Mexico (I'm from Canada)
Do you have any pets? If so what are their names?
I can't leave out or 13 year old cat Liz. She rules the spaniels.
If you could get back a lost item from your past, what would it be?
My significant other gave me a b-day gift our 1st year together when we were young & broke. It was a beach pebble (from where we met) and poem & it was lovely. I lost them both :( That was many years ago...(ahem - 30) This year I got an iPad...(yay!)
What is your favorite food?
Seafood....anything but lobster.
