Feature Friday

We have a great interview from Sheila, owner of Etsy shop Snowman Collector.

OFG: Sheila, what is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?

Sheila: The name of my shop is SnowmanCollector and if you have a look around you will see that the reason I chose that name is obvious - I have developed a great love for all things Snowman!

OFG: How long have you been on Etsy?

Sheila: I have been on Etsy only since April, 2009. I am fairly new but am learning more every day and loving it!

OFG: What type of items do you offer?

Sheila: I offer mostly seasonal items - stuffed snowmen, santas, ornies, etc. I also have a few wreaths and wallhangings mixed in to keep it interesting, both for those looking at my shop and for myself as a crafter.

OFG: How long have you been crafting?

Sheila: I have been crafting for close to 20 years. I started doing quilting and things just kind of evolved. I started doing local craft shows about 10 years ago. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to branch out a little but didn't know how or where (I live in a very rural area) and then I discovered Etsy!!!

OFG: Who or What inspires you?

Sheila: What inspires me? Everything! There are so many ideas floating in my head, I will never do them all. Plus there are so many new things I want to learn, like rug hooking.

OFG: What is your favorite item in your shop and why?

Sheila: I can't pick. Usually whatever I am working on at the time is my favorite item.

OFG: Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

Sheila: At the moment I am only on Etsy. But I am trying to overcome my fear of CyberSpace and hope to at least be on Facebook shortly.

Sheila has a shop full of wonderful items sure to delight anyone. Stop by and visit with Sheila anytime!!!

Sweetheart of an artist, I love Sheila's precious handmades. She allows us to love our lil snowmen all year long! I'm glad she's a part of the old farmhouse gathering.

I am so grateful for all the wonderful ladies at the Old Farmhouse. Their unfailing support is such a blessing. Being able to mix with people with the same interests as yourself inspires you to be more creative, at least that is my belief.
