I’m a 26 yo busy mom of 2 wonderful kids and I have this big passion for crochet that I’m trying to use to raise some money selling my “crocheted little things” as I like to call my works. I do not consider this like a job simply because I really enjoy crochet each and every piece!

What brought you to Etsy? Tell us about your shop.
Need. My hubby was out of job and I had tons of yarn available. After making stuff for all the family, people started asking where they could buy that stuff and I started selling on line, on Ebay first without success and then in the forums I read about etsy and tried. I wasn’t sure how to go at first, but with the help of another amazing etsian (http://sweetirie.etsy.com) my shop is what it is now, thanks for her suggestions, critiques and tips
How is your shop eco-friendly?
I have hard time throwing away things and litter the landfills, so I always try to find a way to reuse paper and plastic. My shop is eco-friendly in many ways:
1- My jewelry and most of my small items are packaged in small boxed obtained by recycled paper….you’ll be amazed what a fancy magazine cover, few folding and cutting can do!
2- I recycled plastic to do some of my items like my plarn bags made out of common grocery bags
making ornaments out of bottles rings
and assembly pieces of scraps found in thrifts shops and such together
3- I make items that substitute some mono-use ones like my facial scrubbies, bath puffs, make up disks and washcloths
Do you sell anywhere else?
I have a shop on ArtFire: Crochetedlittlethings
What’s the favorite item you’ve made so far?
My cupcakes Christmas ornaments
What has been the most useful lesson you’ve learned about Etsy?
Pictures, pictures, pictures!!!! Having good picture it’s all that matter here, and I work on my EVERY DAY!!!! It never ends!
How do you see your store developing?
Well, I’m working on developing a whole line of products cupcakes or food themed. I’d like to stock my virtual shelves with useful things to pamper body and spirit with a fun, yummy looking. Always keeping an eye on what I can do for a greener Earth
What have you been doing today that I’ve interrupted?
Was working on a wholesale order
