Meet ablemabel

What is your craft of choice, and how long have you been doing that?
I do a little bit of everything. Paper crafts, sewing, jewelry. I've been doing it for as long as I can remember.

How did you get started?
I played along side my mother as she worked in her studio at home. She has dabbled in a few different areas of art over the years.

What is your inspiration?

I find inspiration all over the place. Most of the time, it's finding a neat piece of fabric or fun piece of paper.

How long have you been on Etsy?

Since December 2007

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Still at home with my family, hopefully still "playing" around with my supplies!

What is the most challenging thing about having an online business?

Getting my name out there, getting noticed.

What is the most rewarding thing about having an online business?

The sheer numbers of potential customers!

How does your internet business fit into your life? Is it your job or do you have another job as well?
I love doing business online. It's so easy to fit it in whenever I have time. I don't need to worry about keeping the kids quiet or if the dog is barking when I communicate with my customers. This is my only job, if you don't count being a stay a home mom as a job.

When you are not crafting, how do you spend your time?

My family loves the outdoors! Camping, hiking, fishing, etc. On rainy days you'll find us gathered around a board game, reading books or horsing around.

Are there any links you’d like to share?
