What inspires you?
The world around me. I try to keep my eyes open for people, places, outfits, colors, whatever might spur some creative awesomeness in me.

What do you love most about what you do?
Not having a boss to answer to and having full creative freedom. [amen dandee!]

Is Etsy part-time, full-time, or hobby for you? How do you balance it with everything else?
Etsy is part time for me but I also have my own bricks and mortar shop that is full time. So, it's safe to say I create full time.

What are your top favorite blogs or websites?
Well, Etsy sucks up a lot of my time of course and I love searching for goodies on any handmade site. I'm always scouting out new talent to feature at my shop, Sew Dandee here in Winnipeg. And I LOVE food so any veggie friendly and/or baking blogs make me drool. Here are some links to sites I love:

What are your current projects?
Hmmmmm that all depends on the day. Right now my good friend just moved to Nelson, B.C. and she's opening up a shop so I'm working on a bunch of my wares to send out there for her to sell. And I've got a pile of bags cut out on my cutting table waiting to be assembled. And I've got a couple new silk screens in the making, too. Oh, and some custom card orders to fill. My work is never done! Thank goodness!

How did you get started w/your Etsy shop (what made you open it)?
Well, selling online was the next logical step for me since I was selling in my own shop plus at a few other stores. And Etsy had sucked me in as a buyer years before I started actually selling my own stuff on the site so I knew it was the place I wanted to be for my online presence.

Do you have any promo's or sales going on right now?
24/7 year round I offer Buy 3 Get 1 Free on all my cards in my Etsy shop!
