What inspired you to begin a shop featuring your own designs?
 I created first shape sorting cube for my son when he was born. My friends and family really liked it and asked me to do a different designs for their own children. I think every parent want to buy a special one of a kind toy for their child.
 How long have you been practicing your art/craft?
 I have been into crafts since I was about 4 years old...that makes about 21 years.

 What training have you had or are you self-taught?
 I learned everything by myself, step by step.

 What is your favorite material to craft with?
 I can craft with any type of material but my personal favorite is stones, precious stone beads.
What has been the hardest aspect of creating a hobby into a business?
 Hardest was definitely to manage the time between family, day job and starting a crafting business. It wasn't always easy to finish up all of my orders and ship them out in time.

 Any advice for other Etsy sellers?
 My advice would be to : "Be original and create something one of a kind what no one ever did before"

 What do you enjoy doing in your off time?
 Lately I really enjoy to read a good book and walking or running in parks close by.

Describe a typical day in your life…
 My typical day starts with reading my emails and checking for new orders. After breakfast I drop off my son to a daycare and start sanding/painting my goods. At the break in between my paint coats are drying I'm finishing my jewelry orders. After all of my goods are done, clear coats dried, I drop the packages to the post office. The hours of my shops operation really vary, when we have holidays coming I'm mostly done by 12 a.m., otherwise 5 p.m., Sometimes I'm pre painting my boxes to speed up the process. 
 Where can we find your products online?
