1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
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!
I have been on Etsy only since April, 2009.
I offer mostly seasonal items stuffed snowmen, Santa's, ornies, etc. I also have a few wreaths and wall hangings mixed in to keep it interesting, both for those looking at my shop and for myself as a crafter.
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!!!
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.
I can't pick. Usually whatever I am working on at the time is my favorite item.

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.
Thanks for the fun interview Sheila! Love all the snowmen in your shop!
