Feature Blog on Addi Jai Party Poms

Hi Everyone,
Today's blog feature is on my Best Friend Laura's Shop : Addi Jai Party Poms .  She makes Amazing Pom poms.  Pom Poms are wonderful for Birthday parties,hanging in a room to jazz it up and perfect for Photo shoots. I have some hanging in my Studio and Love them.

1) How did you first hear about Etsy?:
The owner of Expressions by Devin herself (my BEST friend) told me just how great Etsy was!

2) Tell us about a little about yourself and your favorite craft/art!:
I’ve been married to the love of my life for almost 5 years. We have identical twin daughters that will be two this June. I have several favorite crafts, I’m not sure I could pick just one. I like lots of things from knitting to drawing.

3) How did you get started as a designer?
I was a full-time working mom and it just wasn’t working. Devin told me about Etsy and told me that I should try it out, so that’s exactly what I did. I didn’t do it without hesitation. It took me a couple of months and a push from her to get me to follow through with it. When my shop first started out, it was called Addi Jai Boutique and it consisted primarily of hair bows. That was a huge bust. I then started listing tissue paper pom poms, which was something that I had made for my daughters’ first birthday and fell in love. They were a hit! I changed my shop name to Addi Jai Party Poms and the business took off. I am now a successful stay-at-home working mom and I couldn’t be happier!

4) What inspires you to create?:
My customers.

5) How do you get the word out about your shop and Etsy?:
Through my Facebook page and word of mouth.

6) Any advice you would give to aspiring designers?:
You never know if you could be successful unless you try. Great photos are a huge plus too!
The picture above is a perfect example of the pom poms as a Photo shot Prop. SO Adorable!!
