Meet Amanda from LittleNoteCrafts & Enter to Win a FREE Pair of Fingerless Gloves

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I’m a natural born crafter who is finding her way in this world. I love to spread a smile, bring joy to everyday lives, and be uplifting. I’m passionate about art, family, food, desserts (yes, this is a whole separate category from food), and the great outdoors.

Tell us about what you sell on Etsy:
LittleNoteCrafts is all about bringing a little color and joy to our everyday lives, so I sell accessories meant to be used every day like hand knit and crocheted items like hats, scarves, fingerless gloves, gadget covers, mug cozies and the like. I’m always looking to introduce new items to continue to expand my shop. I also dabble in jewelry from time to time with bright and beautiful colors and styles, though working with yarn is my first love. There are just so many great cozy kinds to choose from!

What is your favorite thing about creating?
While I love the entire creative process, from the initial design to finding the perfect yarn, my favorite part is the great sense of pride and accomplishment when I finish a piece. There’s nothing like that feeling of putting something beautiful together with your own two hands, especially pieces that take longer to do. It’s even better when you see someone wearing or using something you’ve made. It only motivates me to keep creating!

Where do you find your inspiration?
Nature is my biggest inspiration. It’s where I find the inspiration for great colors during every season, and often the motivation to keep going with whatever endeavors I’ve undertaken. Nature is always resilient, and I try to take a lesson from that.

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

I wouldn’t say I’ve been hugely successful (yet), but my biggest piece of advice would be to stay consistent and stick with it. When you’re beginning I think it’s OK to have a period of trial and error to see what works for you, but after a while you need to stick to your prices and your products and your ‘brand.’ Change can be a good thing, but too much too often hurts a shop more than helping it.

Having outstanding customer service and being personable are also key factors in success. Just be yourself and be proud of what you do!

    I am really glad i found your crafts blog. It is really great! I applaud you for having the business mind enough to parlez your skills into a credible business. It is a lot of work but is there really anything better than getting paid for doing something that you would have to be doing regardless (my definition of an artist has nothing to do with their skill level but more to do with the necessity of creating and its prolific-ness.)
