Welcoming Wednesday #1 Marni

 For the month of December I thought it would be really fun to do some interviews!  I have selected four ladies who all have great blogs and/or Etsy shops.  So grab a cup of coffee and get to know these ladies.  I will have 1 interview each week. Enjoy!


First up we have Marni.  She is really sweet and has an Etsy Shop called RebourneYou can learn more about her by visiting her blog or her Etsy shop.  She has some great items.  Here are my personal favorites!  I think the Professor would be styling in these.




Can you tell me about your family?
 
 I am married to my best friend, Tray. We met in the bicycle shop that he manages. We have two daughters, Sage, 4 years old, and Fern, 2 1/2 years old. We just welcomed our dear son, Ryder, 5 weeks ago!

I know you have an Etsy shop, but how old were you when you started crafting?

 I started crafting before I can remember. My mom, who passed away last December, was always crafting with my 3 brothers and I. She was always making and fixing things around our home, and was a self-taught electrician, plumber, painter, tiler, and decorator. She taught me to sew when I was about 5, but most importantly taught me the value in addressing a problem and figuring out how to tackle it. I always seek to honor her in my craft and remember what an amazing mother and person she was.


What is your favorite item to make for your shop?

 My favorite item to make for my Etsy shop is woolies. I love the process of going to the thrift store, searching for wool that is good quality and fun colors, preparing it for being sewn, cutting it, and finally stitching it into a cute and functional garment that is good for our babies and good for our Earth.


 What is the most popular item that you sell? 

The most popular item I sell are woolies- wool cloth diaper covers.


 Are you doing anything special for the Holidays, either for your shop or for your family?

 For the holidays, Rebourne Clothing is participating in the 29 Days of Christmas event http://www.29diapers.com/2010/11/10/announcing-29-diapers-29-days-of-christmas-giveaway-event/
I will be giving away a free pair of woolies with free shipping to the winner, and there are tons of other awesome well known sponsors doing giveaways as well.
My family will enjoy some quality time together, eating tasty food, and remembering my mom at her favorite time of the year.

These are adorable! How do you keep the wool from being scratchy on the baby where it touches the skin?
