As many of you know, EtsyBABY team members are extremely talented. We wanted to take a peek at the person behind the creativity. All throughout June, we will be interviewing shop owners, to get a glimpse of the designer behind those adorable baby products!
Meet Cheryl Viar from Coolbabyboutique
What inspired you to begin a shop featuring your own designs? I love being creative and I created things for my photography business. Clients were asking where I got my outfits. When I told them I made them, they wanted to purchase them.
How long have you been practicing your art/craft? 5 years
What training have you had or are you self-taught? Self taught
What is your favorite material to craft with? Chiffon
What has been the hardest aspect of creating a hobby into a business? Getting business and traffic to the site is the hardest thing. I sell local also.
Any advice for other Etsy sellers? Make quality products, keep them fresh and always keep your clients happy.
What do you enjoy doing in your off time? I enjoy playing with my new grand babies.
Describe a typical day in your life. Most of my inspiration comes to me while laying in bed trying to sleep at night. I put ideas on my phone. In the morning I start early then take a break at lunch for a couple hours to get house work done & ship out packages then start creating again til dinner. After dinner I take photos and post them on the site. I love what I do. It's relaxing & it makes me happy.
Where can we find your products online? My products are listed on Etsy and www.coolbabyboutique.com which takes you to my Etsy shop.
