How did you get started on Etsy?
I used to sell on ebay, and one of my friends suggested that I try selling on Etsy. I sell on Etsy as a way to be able to stay home with my children.

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am a stay at home mom to a 4 year old daughter and 19 month old identical twin boys. Both my husband and I grew up in Southern California. We have been married for 6 years. I love to blog, bake, sew, and craft!

Apart from creating things, what do you do?
I love to cook, bake, sew, and blog.

What first made you want to become an artist?
I have always been creative. As a child I loved to paint and do crafts. As I got older I really enjoy sewing. It's relaxing for me.
