When and why did you first join Etsy? Oohh it must have been sometime in 2005. I discovered it through a google search and fell madly in love!

Did you open your shop right away?
No! It took me a good year to do it! But I am so happy I finally did.

Why are you a member of EtsyTeaParty?
Because I love meeting lots of other talented people who adore pretty girly things!

Easy one, what is your favorite color(s)?
PINK! But I actually adore most colours, esp. pastels!

How did you choose your shop's name?
Easy.. I was completely unoriginal and used my own name!

What is your favorite item that you have listed in your shop and why (add URL)?
Ooohh this is to hard! I really liked these floral towel leggings, and wish I could have kept them for myself But really, I kind of love everything!!!

Do you have any other hobbies besides crafting/creating gorgeous handmade things for Etsy?
Of course! Although juggling school and all my kelsey genna stuff… leaves me hardly anytime! I love to hang out with my friends, travel, watch movies

Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have the most adorable most cutest cat in the whole world. Her name is Mity, she is black and white and looks like shes around 2 years old, but is actually 15 years old!

What is your most cherished possession and why?
I don’t think I have one!

What is/are your favorite item(s) that you bought from Etsy?
Too hard to choose!Vintage Boots from NEONKATSDollbaby Necklace from I’MYOURPRESENTHead piece by FLORALBOND (I haven’t received this yet but I am certain it will be amazing)Also… World Wide Labels make THE best clothing labels

Tell us about your family members.
Well I live at home with my Mum, Dad and my 16 year old brother Ryan. I am lucky I have a verry supportive family, who have allowed me to take over half our house with sewing machines and endless piles of fabric! We live on a life style block just own of town, its really pretty and full of nature- greeat for photoshoots!!

If you were stranded on an island and could only bring three things, what would they be?
I always, always think about this question but can never come up with an answer! Probably a bag of pick and mix lollies, my laptop(!) and my cat!!

What things inspire you to craft/create?
I am a total fashion history junkie! For a school assignment we had to create a source book on the past ten decades of fashion history, I made ten magazines (one for each decade!) and they have become my fashion bible!! Right now the eighties is my favourite! All the big floral prints and pastels, ahh I love it! But I definitely get a lot of inspiration from films, music, art, photography…

What advice do you have for fledgling Etsy sellers?
Treat your customers like royalty! They are the ones paying your bills!Also for new sellers, don’t give up on your Etsy shop after just a month or two… it takes awhile for people to notice fabulous new shops!
