Name: Lindsay
Birthdate: February 15th
Location: Southern California, right outside Los Angeles.
Shop Name: Em & Sprout

When and why did you first join Etsy?
I wanted to start selling my shoes. I looked around Etsy to see if anyone else was doing the same thing and no one was so I was super super excited to open shop.

Did you open your shop right away?

Why are you a member of EtsyTeaParty?
Because it's the cutest Etsy Team and I like all the girls and shops involved!! Plus, being associated with cute things can't be bad for business, right? :)

Easy one, what is your favorite color(s)?
This is not an easy one!! I love lime green, red, deep pink, black, white, grey. I wear a lot of black but I guess I'll sayyyyyy LIME GREEN.

How did you choose your shop's name?
Em & Sprout are the names of my cats. I call them Em & Sprout but their full names are Emily Pussyfoot and Beansprout Sassypants.

What is your favorite item that you have listed in your shop and why (add URL)?
My Cat on a Bike Striped Dress. I like it because it's a new print and it's a CAT and it's a dress!
Do you have any other hobbies besides crafting/creating gorgeous handmade things for Etsy?
I love to draw, play video games, crafts of all sorts like applique and sewing, take pictures, cook and bake! I recently started to teach myself how to knit. :)

Do you have any pets?
Yes! Two gorgeous tabby cats: Em & Sprout.

What is your most cherished possession and why?
A unicorn beanie babie my mom bought for me when I was little, back when beanie babies were all the rage. HA!

What is/are your favorite item(s) that you bought from Etsy?
I've scored some awesome deals on Etsy! A while back I got a big wooden cat shaped spool holder for only 5 bucks!!

Tell us about your family members.
I have a dad and two younger brothers who all live in Southern California. My little brothers are both musically inclined and my Dad makes fake teeth for a living!

If you were stranded on an island and could only bring three things,what would they be?
Since people and animals don't count as things I'm going to assume my husband and cats are already with me :) SO I'll say:a neverending supply of diorshow mascara, the internet, and a digital camera. I would totally blog my whole stranded island experience. HA!

What things inspire you to craft/create?
Animals, cute things, other crafters/artists, naps, cloudwatching, all the little things in life!

What advice do you have for fledgling Etsy sellers?
Have a unique vision, work hard, and be authentic. Oh and take good photos! :)
