HEADLINE: Chatting with laurenmc18, a shop on Etsy


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 ( 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?

Happy shopping!
