MustHaveBeenTheCat

MustHaveBeenTheCat

Tell us about yourself.

I live in Tasmania, the beautiful island state of Australia. Surrounded by mountains, river and sea it’s truly a beautiful place to be.

I love all sorts of craft and I love to combine my love of sewing with my love of cats and so MustHaveBeenTheCat was born. I make all sorts of quirky cat creations but my most popular item is my cat shaped neck and shoulder therapy packs which can be used hot or cold.

When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?

I opened MustHaveBeenTheTheCat in 2011.

MustHaveBeenTheCat was the perfect chance to combine my love of cats and my love of sewing.

I chose MustHaveBeenTheCat as it’s often the cat that gets blamed for anything that goes wrong.

“Who knocked that expensive vase off the shelf?” “It must have been the cat!”tillie

Tell us a bit about your products.

My best selling items are my heat packs. I have cat, dog and fox shaped neck and shoulder wrap heat packs. Great for easing those sore and stiff necks.

I also have cat dolls,cat themed totes and phone covers, book covers, fleecy scarves and hand warmers.

My newest range are my cat shaped weighted shoulder wraps and lap pillows for those with sensory processing issues.2015-10-21-20-45-02

What inspires your work?           

I am inspired by my love of cats. They are so irresistible. Every cat has its own personality. Just like my own creations, no two are the same.

I have to admit to being a fabricholic or is it a curator of fabric? So much beautiful fabric and so little time and so little room.

Being able to sell my creations made with gorgeous fabrics gives me an excuse to buy more.fox6a

What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?

 I’d like to get a standalone website up and running and use up some more of my gorgeous fabric collection.c2387013154ca0cf52dd8f1de07ca540

What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?

I think I have a niche market ans no-one else creates the things I do but if I we are just talking about heat packs mine are unique as they are cat, fox and dog shaped made in gorgeous fabrics and no two are alike.

Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?

My work space is my kitchen table so it can be frustrating as I have to pack up everything at the end of the day and set it up again the next time.

My ultimate dream would be to have a dedicated work space …. my own studio.78fa376f2fd4c0060381c9fd90bbfb8d

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

I wish I had known how much work it would be and also how much fun it would be and that I would find such a wonderful support network on Etsy.

Any advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy?

Make sure you join an active and supportive team it can make all the difference to your success.

When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?

When I’m not working I’m studying. I’m doing a second degree course as well as a certificate course. It keeps me busy and out of mischief.

I’ve also taken up quilting and love to use up all those scraps from my creations to make new fabric and exciting quilts. Well if I’m really honest I make lots of quilt tops but haven’t actually finished any yet. So many things to do and so little time.ab35b19e70093909eb4c16441222e4df

Please join us in welcoming Trish of PinkParchmentSoaps, our featured member!

PinkParchmentSoaps

PinkParchmentSoaps

Tell us about yourself.

I am a wife and mother. I have a wonderful husband who supports me in all of my endeavors. I have 2 wonderful girls, now in their 20’s and they are my pride and joy.

When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?

Created in 2007, Pink Parchment Soaps offers a complete line of all natural, fun and unique soaps as well as body butters, sugar scrubs and solid perfumes.

Why? Because we love making all natural, almost all natural and simply fun products! Years ago we bought some handmade soap. WOAH Hold the water, hold the bubbles, hold the soap! Who knew the difference? We didn’t, but then we did and what a difference it was. We immediately fell in love with handmade soaps and bought more and more and more. (Yes we LOVE handmade soap) Finally one day Jim (Dear husband and father) said, “You know, I think you could make this yourself”. Waa Haa Haa, boy was he right! And how much fun we had! A few classes and a couple of boat loads of soaps later, we had more soap than we knew what to do with AND we still and a thousand new ideas we wanted to try.soap-room

Tell us a bit about your products.

We make handmade bath and beauty products. Our current line up includes: Soap, Sugar Scrubs, Body Butters, Shower Steamers, Bath Bombs and Perfume. We are planning on adding bath salts and some aromatherapy products this year. Stay Tuned! We love searching out and finding ingredients that come from small businesses  as well as local businesses.2

What inspires your work?           

That’s a hard question! I’d have to say mostly nature. Flowers and color combinations that are beautiful.moon-glow-4-1000

What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?

We would love to be able to grow our business and be able to hire some local people who have our same ideals and goals. For me, this includes being able to pay a living wage, provide health care, have an inspiring work place, work with creative people who love their work and love to laugh and of course – have fun.

What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?

I think what makes us stand out the most is that we make beautiful products, use the highest quality ingredients, and make products that make people feel better about their day!

Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?

I currently have a separate kitchen and separate “soap room”. The soap room was once our living room.

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

Oh my! There is so much that I have learned! Go to conferences! Meet people who are in the same line of business and really, truly listen to what worked and didn’t work for them and why. Get inspired by the people you meet. Take customer suggestions and feedback seriously – but evaluate if what they have to say works for you and your current business model. Know that you will make mistakes. We all do. Get over it and move on.

Have a dream and dream big!

Any advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy?

Yes! I would suggest doing research on what kind of products you want to sell. And I know this has been said a thousand times – have good titles, tags, keywords and most of all have good photos. Fill in all of your information, and I think this is the most important – make sure you show up in the search. Think like someone who is trying to find your product and what they would search on. Because, if no one can find you, well you simply won’t sell anything.

When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?

We do lots! Gardening is always on the top of the list. Yoga, walking in the woods, cooking YUM – we all love trying new recipes, traveling, going to see bonsai exhibitions – what a fantastic art this is! Going to the movies, the zoo, plays, musicals!

What is your favorite quote?

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Please join us in welcoming Ruthie of LoveYourBling, our featured member!

LoveYourBling

LoveYourBling

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Ruthie Youngman; I am the founder of Love Your Bling®. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who moonlights as a jewelry designer. I am a wife and mother of two.

When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?

After many years working in the mental health field, I turned to the hobby of beading to cope with stress at work. The hobby evolved into a small business that allows me to enjoy two diverse careers. I have now shipped to all 50 states and over 50 countries worldwide.

Tell us a bit about your products.

My products styles have varied over the years, but one thing that has stayed consistent is the bling. I am a verified SWAROVSKI® Elements branding partner, so my customer’s can be reassured that they are receiving high-quality crystals.2

What inspires your work?           

Color is my biggest source of inspiration. I love to keep up with Pantone’s seasonal color predictions and incorporate them into my designs. I love classic looks and try to go overboard with style trends.

What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?

My number one goal in 2017 is to focus on wholesale. It is an area of my business I have not put much energy into but I plan to.

What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?

Etsy is a huge marketplace and jewelry is one of if not the most competitive category. There are many designers that create looks that are similar, however, I feel years of excellent customer service and consistent five-star rating reassures customers that I will deliver exactly what they expect. I have endured the high’s and lows of a small business and I am still here. One thing that frustrates customers is when they find a great Etsy shop, and then when they come back to purchase the shop is gone or on vacation. I am proud to have stayed in business this long.

Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?

When I started making jewelry I did everything on my dining room table. Over the years my family has grown and so has our living space so now I have a dedicated room to work in.3

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

In the past eight years, I have learned so much about running a small business, and I did so through a lot of trial and error and Google. I wish I had paid for more education early on. The past three years I have attended conferences specifically designed for handmade business such as Craftcation. It has been wonderful to network with other creative small business owners. I also wish I had registered my trademark sooner.

Any advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy?

Read the forums daily. Over the years I have so many changes and they literally happen overnight. Checking in with forums is the best way to know what is about to change or has changed. Etsy has been great at providing a lot of education via blog posts, and other series and I highly recommend engaging in whatever they provide.

When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?

I have been a life-long crafter, so I dabble in just about every kind of there is. Anything from paper crafts, fiber arts, to painting. At the moment I have revived my love of knitting.

What is your favorite quote?

My absolute favorite quote is by Coco Chanel who said: “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” I believe this is my philosophy is all aspects of my life, but for business, it is critical to stand out.4

Where can people find out more about your business?  

You can find all you need to know at www.LoveYourBling.com, and I am on all major social media channels as @LoveYourBling.

 Is there anything else you’d like to share?

I am also a member of the by-invitation-only, juried celebrity gifting organization The Artisan Group®. Love Your Bling has been worn on seven network television shows including The Vampire Diaries, Jane the Virgin, and Fuller House.  Love Your Bling has also participated in elite award show gift lounges such as GBK’s Luxury Celebrity Gift Lounges in Honor of the Golden Globes, MTV Movie Awards, and Primetime Emmys.

I have also been honored to have designs published in two nationally published beading magazines; Bead Style and Create Jewelry magazines.5

Please join us in welcoming Diana of joliefemmebydiana, our featured member!

joliefemmebydiana

joliefemmebydiana

Tell us about yourself.

I am a lady who loves to sew and create things from fabric. I have lived in New Mexico most of my life and I love the natural landscapes, the light, and the open sky. I am trilingual Spanish, English, and French speaking, reading and writing. I am married and have a supportive husband and two kids that are teens.

When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?

I started on Etsy in 2008 after a few successful local art and craft shows. I was encouraged and mentored by some friends who were also on Etsy and thought my products would be great to sell online. I tried Etsy and it was easy to set up and I started to get some sales within the first month, so I have stayed.

joliefemmeHangTag

joliefemmeHangTag

Tell us a bit about your products.

I create bags and other fabric accessories like eyeglass cases, pocket wallets, headbands and scarves. I also make items for kids like stuffed animal carriers and teeny totes that match a plush pet. I have recently started creating decorative pillows and pillow covers.u2

What inspires your work?           

The love of fabric really moves me! I love cheerful color and prints from vintage to modern. I am inspired by Frida Kahlo’s art and Dia de los Muertos style fabrics and art.3

What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?

 I am looking forward to refining my product line over the coming year. Working on new ideas for products and hope to surpass 700 sales this year and get close to 800. I will continue to participate in local shows and events and sell at a consignment shop in town. My dream is to continue this business and contribute to my local and Etsy community as much as possible in the future.4

What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?

Many people sell bags and mine stand out as unique by my style, which is influenced by Frida Kahlo, the artist and my home state. New Mexico is a place with bright sunlight and strong cultural influences from the Hispanic and Native American arts and I try to incorporate the style elements from those cultures that I admire in my work. I love cotton fabric and a sewing machine as much as I love embroidery floss and hand embroidery and I strive to incorporate my skills into my work. I have become interested in using stencils and fabric paint to create expressive new prints on fabric and make pillows or bags from them.5

Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?

I have a studio at home in a room upstairs where I can keep my supplies and sewing machines and also photograph and display my merchandise. It’s nice to have a quiet and undisturbed work space to create in! I can work and listen to podcasts and still be available to my family and pets.6

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

The unexpected will happen. I try to give the best customer service and communication possible but I stay open to admitting if I messed up or forgot something. The relationship with the customer is the most important thing and you need to respect each other and work together to resolve any issues. The same goes for creating, if something I sew doesn’t work, I always try to recycle the fabric into something else. Sometimes I think you just need to focus on the experience and then let it go and move on with gratitude for learning from it.7

Any advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy?

Etsy is a dynamic place where things often change and you just have to be committed to keep learning and working on your craft and your shop. There are many resources and inspiration to be had from teams and off-Etsy blogs and groups. So many free tips and support can be found out there so don’t get frustrated, just reach out and get help.8

When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?

I like sewing and embroidery and I come up with projects that help me to keep learning and mastering new skills. I make clothes and am learning to upcycle them into new objects. I stay busy with my pet cats, chickens and turtles. I am learning to garden and create landscaping in my yard too. I hope to get into my vintage RV visit some state and national parks this year too.9

What is your favorite quote?

Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Frida Kahlo10

I would like to say that I feel there are many talented people in the world and I encourage them to share their gifts with others, whether through teaching or making and selling. It makes our world more beautiful and rich to know that a person created useful and everyday items by hand just for you.12

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

We learned many new things while working. Like different material acts differently, sometimes like for e.g. wood acts very different in different climatic conditions because of its porousness, sometimes it becomes a major problem. We learned a lot about how to produce a final product with keeping in mind all the different possibilities and problems. We understood how to run a business successfully with minimum resources available.

It was a great journey so far and we are sure it will be wonderful ahead.

We are happy with our learning process life is all about exploration, world is endless there is still much more things to learn about , nothing is perfect before : “EXPERIENCE MAKES IT PERFECT”!8

Tell us about yourself.       

I’ve been an artist since I was born. With my mom, we always created something… I have learnt to sew, embroider, or bead work when I learnt to speak or walk! I always wanted to create perfect things, so I have stopped everything… but when my son born, somehow I taken back my creativity. I’ve started to make jewelry first, but what I really love is making kids happy with my cute, crazy, and sometimes beautiful felt ornaments!g

When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?

I have opened my shop on Etsy in 2012. – After all of my friends and family members had enough felt ornaments and jewelry, they convinced me to show them to the world.g1

Tell us a bit about your products.           

I am making ornaments for every occasion – and the main priority is Christmas! Also, people asking me to create hanging ornaments for baby showers or as nursery decoration as well. I love to make custom things, like crazy colored animals, or funny figures!g2

What inspires your work?           

I would say everything around me! Sometimes I look out of my window and see something what helps to make something new … sometimes a book with fairy tales. I am getting requests from my son also! Inspiration is everywhere!g3

What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?         

I am so happy what I have accomplished already. I would like to get as much happy feedback from my customers as last year. My big dream this year is to get featured in a magazine.g4

I have a wide range of designs, and color combinations. You can ask me for custom design, and also embroidered items. I am proud of the quality I can provide, and great customer service.g5

I don’t have separate place – in most of the times, I am sitting at my desk in front of my computer. But anywhere I am going, I bring my sewing kit! I am sewing where I have my coffee!g6

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

Well… the power of social media is a must to know. I had less products listed before, but I was working with the same quality of materials, and most of my designs are coming from my first drawings. My shop has started to grow when I have learn how to use social media to show my products to my audience.g7

KayLaneSisters

Tell us about yourself.       

It was my daughter’s future that inspired me to join the Etsy Marketplace.  As a single mother on one, I needed to be able to earn enough extra income to send her to college one day.  I was introduced to Etsy about 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with the idea of turning my love for crafting into a  small-business of my own.k

When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?

I opened my store in 2011, it took a full year before I was able to create a single pair of tiny baby booties that I felt were truly perfect.   Every year that went by I continued to change the way I was making them, trying to complete with a store-bought pair of shoes.  While there were so many frustrations along the way, I couldn’t bring myself to give up.  I knew that the shoes I offered were going to be incredibly special to so many families and it was important to me that I pushed myself to make sure our personalized baby shoes became a reality.  I quickly became very busy with my shoes and loved every minute.k1

Tell us a bit about your products.           

My personalized, monogrammed baby booties are made for your Little Prince and Princess and these shoes are a beautiful keepsake for families to have years to come.  Each pair is hand-made from a bolt of fabric, no pre-made shoes here.  I created these shoes with care and tons of love.k2

What inspires your work?           

My daughter is my biggest inspiration for my shop.  Even now as she has becomes a young lady I consider her being where she is today as a direct result of my passion and commitment to my Etsy Shop.  It wasn’t easy but I’m so proud of my daughter and her accomplishments in school, and now a Senior in college, I can’t even believe how fast the time goes by.k3

What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?         

My goals for the future of KayLaneSisters is to be the best I can be, and enjoy every single pair of shoes I make.  I often dream of doing this business full-time, I have an amazing support system in place and one day with will be my sole income.

What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?

Our shoes are hard to duplicate, I see others try, but the secret ingredient in our process helps keep us heads and shoulders above our competition.  I offer a wide range of customizing options, to colors and fonts and most of the new ideas you see in my shop comes directly from my customers, wanting to order a pair they don’t see in my shop. I had a customer want a pair of baby shoes covered in little pearls and I thought, I had not seen that before but i would love the challenge.k4

Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?

I do have a separate studio where I do all my brain storming and production.  It’s a great to have a little space of my own to get lost in the moment, knowing that a sweet little baby will soon be wearing my shoes on their special day.

What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?

I have learned so much since opening my Etsy shop.  Mostly how to be inviting thru emails and communications with potential customers.  With an online business you have to learn to put your personality down on paper.  Your customers can’t see how excited you are when you get their order, so it’s up to you to convey that to them.  I wish I knew all the little ticks of the online business trade before I started.  I think I would have been a lot further along than where I am today.  I do try to offer up anything information that I come across and share that in the Etsy forums.

Any advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy?

Advice for anyone thinking of opening a Shop on Etsy… do it and do it now.  Pick a craft that you love, and your business will flourish.  I have encouraged 5 of my friends to start their own shops on Etsy.  With me giving each of them as much knowledge as I have to give, they are all doing very well.  I tell them, it’s all about promoting, promoting and promoting.

When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?

When I’m not working on my baby shoes, I love to be with family and friends.  My hobby is my sewing, and I really enjoy making money doing what i love…and that is sewing. Creating is such a wonderful outlet for stress.k7

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote or saying is: Challenge yourself everyday to do better and be better.  Remember, growth starts with a decision to  beyond your present circumstances.

Life doesn’t always turn out like you would want it to, but it turns out like it’s supposed too …and once we accept that, life moves in a direction that makes sense.
