Can you tell me about your family?
I have a sweet little family of 3, although some days they are sweeter than others :) My husband, Seth and I met in
highschool and became good friends.
In college we started dating and the rest is history!
Our son, Caleb is almost two...which is really hard to believe. He is a funny fella and we love him to pieces.
We are a Christian military family, currently stationed in Fort Benning Georgia.
We try to take one day at a time and make the most out of it!
I know you have an Etsy shop, but how old were you when you started crafting?I think I was crafting in the womb...haha.But seriously, I don't remember a time that I didn't enjoy doing something crafty.where my love interest of crafting came from.I grew up watching my mom and nanny sew and craft and I am sure that isCrafting for me is like working out for others.You get addicted and then you can't imagine what your life wouldbe like without it! Now I wish I could transfer that to working out as well :-)What is your favorite item to make for your shop?Oooo...well my favorite items to make are the one of a kind, spur of the moment ones.Seth had left for work and Caleb was still sleeping one morning.Like this teapot for instance.I also love these new juice glasses/votives that are a "one of a kind" item.So, I sat down at the coffee table with my blank slate (teapot) and started painting!What is the most popular item that you sell?By far, MUSTACHE MUGS! People are reallllllyinto mustaches right now! I'm hoping to stay mustache freeuntil this trend blows over, but I don't mind giving a mug a mustache :)
Are you doing anything special for the Holidays, either for your shop or for your family?
The holidays are always a great time. This is the busiest time of the year for my etsy shopfor friends and family...and I must admit I enjoy being busy painting!because everyone is looking for unique giftsdriving from Georgia to Louisiana and staying with some of Seth's cousinsAs for our family this year...we are going on a Christmas adventure to Texas. We arewith Seth's family...we are super excited. Seth's mom is a fabulous cook and they also live right on the beach.and then we are driving the rest of the way to Padre Island Texas forand it will be a wonderful reunion. We plan on eating a lot, taking long walks on the beachPlus, Seth hasn't seen his family in a year
and spending time talking, laughing and catching up with family :)
What is your favorite Holiday tradition?
I don't have one but I plan to start one. For Halloween/Thanksgiving we painted pumpkins asa family and will continue to do that every year but I haven't thought of a good one yet for Christmas.....who knows! We have a super cute "Cookies for Santa" platterMaybe we will do a cookie bake or some kind of painting craftOne thing I am really excited about is that this year Caleb will be able to sit and listen to thethat I will let him set cookies out on...and maybe a carrot or two for the reindeer :)him the story of Jesus...which for our family is the most important part about the holidays.story of Jesus' birth. The night before Christmas we plan on reading
