This weeks Feature shop is Melon dot. She is a Fellow etsy Kids seller and has Adorable Kids Cloths!!!
1)How did you first hear about Etsy?:
I think it must have been an ad or feature in a parents' magazine that interested me and brought me into the wonderful world of etsy.
2)Tell us about a little about yourself and your favorite craft/art!:
I am a wisconsin girl through and through although I long for the beach all year long! I have a 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son and a grown kid husband.
I love sewing, photography and trying my hands at any tutorial that I find. Someday I would love to learn to knit more than the washcloths my grammy taught me to knit. If i had more time and money I probably would delve into even more crafts.
3)How did you get started as a designer?
I had kids. and, there are such cute things on the market but, somethings I just wanted to be able to make myself and make them unique in my own way. Plus, our friends are at the age of babies too, and what better gift than some handmade goodness.
4)What inspires you to create?:
color, string, catalogs, magazines, blogs, my children.....everything.
5)How do you get the word out about your shop and Etsy?:
This is something that I am working on. I tend to be somewhat on the shy side (especially in person) so blogging, facebook, and email or tops for me right now. soon I hope to step out with business cards in hand.
6)Any advice you would give to aspiring designers?:
Designing is about doing what you love. In a way, it is kind of a way to be selfish because you get to do something you love but, for others.
