Describe what you sell.
I sell anything from needlepoint pieces, framed or purses, etc.. to jewelry..
What is your real life like?
I really enjoy crafts, haha.. They keep me pretty busy. I work in the food industry as a cook.. When I am not there I spend time with my amazing boyfriend, enjoy a craft night with my friends "The Crafty Cunts." Or just enjoy watching a movie, I am a huge fan of comedies and Judd Apatow.
What is your process?
It depends on what I do. If I am doing a cross stitch, I use cross stitch canvas.. thread.. needles.. If it is embroidery, I use fabrics, a lot of felt and usually a cute Sublime Stitching Pattern. If it is jewelry then I have to have my pliers for wire wrapping and cutting, and I usually use sterling silver pieces.
Business Goals and Vision...
My goals long term are just to be able to continue to have a shop on the side. I just had my first custom order and it was so thrilling to be asked to do a piece for someone! I guess I will end up doing something more job wise for a career but I would love to continue doing this on the side. I am not trying to get rich or live off the pieces I do sell, I really just want it to pay for itself so I can continue doing what I love.
How do you market your business?
I am new to the promoting game so I haven't really done a lot of marketing. I try to post pieces on websites that I am involved with such as crafster.org or etsy.com or blogspot.com
