Pink and White Checkard Shoe Clips – $11.50

What is your favorite thing about creating?

My favorite thing is shopping for materials with a spark of an idea and then ending up with a finished product looking better than the original envisioned picture. Also, creating something that someone will cherish and be able to wear with exuberant confidence and poise.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find my inspiration in the beauty of the world around me, from my mom, from the people in my life that support me, through the lens of a camera, by reading, and by watching movies/shows.

Blue and White Lace Flower Stretchy Headband – $6.50

Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other Etsy sellers?

No matter how disappointed you become – never give up! Have confidence and pride in your work! Listing something everyday really helps get your items out there! You can promote on your facebook page, twitter, pinterest, and/or your blog! Remember to take good photos with excellent lighting and a good amount of contrast. Make sure that your images do not have too much going on in the background; it can be distracting.

Where else can we find you?
