Q: What is your stores name and what do you sell (and anything else that you wanna share about it)?
My store is called LMNOProducts, and I sell accessories and a few housewares.
Q: How long have you been crafting for yourself before you decided to share your designs with other?
I've been crafting my whole life, but I just started selling on Etsy about a month and a half ago.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration?
Just about everywhere!
Q: Do you do this for fun or for serious business?
For fun! I stare at a computer screen editing documents all day, and it feels good to be able to sit down afterward and make something with my hands.
Q: Do you ever get a creative block? If yes, how frustrating is it and how do you deal with that?
Of course. When that happens, I just try to look at my materials in a different way and see if I can think of a way to innovate. Or, I try something completely new--for example, I plan to get into designing resin jewelry soon!
Q:. What is a normal day like for you?
I get up way too late, play with my dog, race off to work and do a bunch of writing and editing. Then it's time to go home, play with the pup some more, and watch TV while I work on new products.
Q:. What else interests you besides your craft?
I write a blog, LMNOP (http://lmnop.blogs.com/) and love to shop, sleep, and take my dog to the park.
Q: Is there something you would like to say as the end of the talk?
