Is Etsy part-time, full-time, or hobby for you? How do you balance it with everything else?
Part-time. I don't have family to take care of so the balance is not challenging. After I get home from work, I work on my business. I keep a pretty flexible schedule.


What are your top favorite blogs or websites?
Kaboodle, Twitter, etsyqueers.blogspot.com, Cafe Handmade, etsyitemoftheday.com


What are your current projects?
jewelry, jewelry and more jewelry


How did you get started w/your Etsy shop (what made you open it)?
I started making jewelry as a positive way to help deal with the anxiety and depression I was going through. Friends and family encouraged me to sell my work, so I opened up on Etsy. I also sell at a few craft fairs during the year.

I really enjoyed seeing her items. Some have a real classic, vintage look that will last forever. And the blue bling ring is fun!
