Today I'm very excited to show you some ADORABLE baby things handmade by My Sweet Potato 3! Here's my interview with Christine!
Tell us a little bit about yourself: I am a stay at home mom of 3 children who are my inspiration and joy of my life along with my husband. As a young girl my Great Grandmother taught me the art of crocheting. I have been developing my skills since and decided I would like to share it with others. I also enjoy playing with my kids, anything outdoors especial camping and hiking, cooking (or trying to cook as my family would say), and I am currently training to run the Sawtooth Relay.
And your shop: I opened My Sweet Potato 3 almost 2 months ago. It has been a lot of fun selling my hats and seeing them used in professional photography, on everyday kids and even used as chemo hats. I am excited about announcing a discount on all items in my shop that are purchased for young children going through chemotherapy this week-an inspiration from one of my first clients.
What's the inspiration behind the beautiful items you create? My Great Grandmother taught me to crochet when I was in junior high. I want to carry on her skill, I feel a part of her is with me still when I sit down and work on a project in the evenings. And of course my children! Seeing something you create on adorable little ones is always an inspiration!
Are you hoping to expand in the future? Only being open for a couple months, I feel as though I am just starting out. I do have hopes to expand, especially this fall when the chilly weather starts to set in again. However, my priority will always be my family! So as long as I can continue to work on hats in the evenings I am excited about my business growing.
Beside Etsy, where else can we find you? I just started a blog and would love to have you follow! It is little bit business, a little bit about me: mysweetpotato3.blogspot.com/
Anything else you'd like us to know? Feel free to bee completely random if you like. :-) ~My Grandmother just celebrated her 80th birthday! And from her came 5 wonderful children, 27 loved grandkids, and 28 cherished great-grandkids and we are still growing! I love you Grandma Lila!
Aren't those hats just adorable!!! I LOVED looking through her shop!! Now head on over there and check out the rest of her items!! :-) Enjoy!
