Are you a daughter who loves to do things with your mom? I know I get a lot of ideas from my mom and she motivates me when I need it as well! Well, this week, our featured shop consists of a mother/daughter team. Meet Debbie & Brittany from My Tiny Blooms!
Debbie (mom) does the creating and all the sewing, as well as takes care of any custom orders. Brittany (daughter) helps with the finishing touches as well as all the techie stuff, including monitoring Facebook & communicating with customers.
For the interview we get to hear from Debbie 🙂
1) How did you start creating?
I began sewing years ago, making clothes and items for my two girls. I recently started back up this year, teaching my oldest daughter (who is 25!)
2) What is your favorite thing about creating?
I love turning nothing into something unique and one-of-a-kind!
3) Where do you find your inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere around me.
4) Tell us about what you sell.
I sell handmade unique baby blankets, bibs, burp clothes and pacifier leashes. Everything comes in a matching set! I am also working on creating even more matching items, from car seat covers to playmats!
5) How did your shop get it’s name?
My daughter and I came up with My Tiny Blooms with the idea that babies are like small buds that bloom into beautiful people!
6) Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Dont give up! It is easy to get discouraged when things dont sell quickly, but just keep advertising!
7) How do you balance your Etsy shop, your children, and your everyday schedule?
Its not too hard for me, both my girls are adults, but I try to schedule certain times of day to devote to my Etsy Shop!
8) Where else can we find you?
Facebook (keep watch for deals!)
