Meet creativedesignz

1 . What is your craft of choice, and how long have you been doing that?
I have two passions. My jewellery and my photography. I have been doing both for about 5 yrs.
2. How did you get started?
My jewellery designing started back when my oldest daughter was 2. she found some pretty beads and immediately wanted to make herself a bracelet. so i bought some findings and after playing around with the beads, i decided i could get hooked on this. My photography started about 5 yrs ago when the oldest daughter was 1. we used to live near the beach so would take her for walks there and play in the caves nearby. when i wanted to capture special moments of her i found myself taking my camera along everyday after that.
3. What is your inspiration?
I guess seeing as my daughter helped me find my create side and it all started with her, i have her to thank. Since then my youngest whos now 3 has a flair for spotting good photo opportunities too.
4. How long have you been on Etsy?
Since September 2006 - nearly 3 years ago
5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully opening my own shop or at least have some of my peices on display in a great high end shop somewhere being admired but hundreds of people.
6. What is the most challenging thing about having an online business?
That i spend alot of time in my shop. However that also means spending money on supplies which isnt a bad thing either. So i guess thats a positive.
7. What is the most rewarding thing about having an online business?
The money helps but knowing that my lovely items are being sent all over the world and its a fantastic feeling that its been appreciated somewhere else too.
8. How does your internet business fit into your life? Is it your job or do you have another job as well?
I am a full time mother so yes i have a job besides Etsy and can be challenging at times trying to juggle both, but i try to make a little time each day to construct something that reflects a bit of me that i end up loving.
9. When you are not crafting, how do you spend your time?
With my gorgeous children 6 &3 down at the park or zoo where i can take photos of them enjoying themselves. so i do take my work with me :)
10. Are there any links you’d like to share?
