It’s Feature Friday Again and if you have a little girl at home, you’ll want to check this shop out! She has some adorable pieces in her shop!
1) How did you start creating?
Once I knew I was having a girl I went to every craft show around town to find the perfect accessories for my daughter. It was so hard to find something I loved so I started making her own hair accessories. Everywhere I went people were asking where did I get that headband? After I told them I made them I then was asked to make some.
I have always wanted to find something I was passionate about. I was always a fan of handmade and am a huge craft show junkie for that! Once I started making them, I became so enthusiastic about them and realized I had found my niche! I truly love making my items and find it rewarding in how creative I can be!
3) Where do you find your inspiration?
My main inspiration is my daughter! I would take one of her outfits and make something special to match! I am also inspired by fabrics and/or colors I like.
4) Tell us about what you sell.
I sell headbands, hair clips, and photo prop accessories
5) How did your shop get it’s name?
After trying to find a name that wasn’t already in use, I wanted to incorporate my daughter somehow so I made it My Lil Sweetie Boutique. She’s my Lil sweetie and I want my customers to know I make each item as if it was for my Lil sweetie
6) Do you have any advice for other sellers?
My advice would be to do something you love! You will never work and the rewards are endless.
7) How do you balance your Etsy shop, your children, and your everyday schedule?
I try to spend my days with my daughter and as soon as she is in bed or napping, I am in my workspace filling orders. I am happy to have my husband help out by watching our daughter when I have a lot to make and cannot finish at night, he also helps taking them to the post office for me.
8) Where else can we find you?
