Chained Melody Giveaway

Crocheted things are just adorable, and around your neck they are typically referred to as a scarf but now there is a new twist on the classic craft, mixed with fun statement necklaces that will have you lining up for more! Laci, of Zig-Zags, has found the perfect way to craft this quaint craft into a fun fashion statement!

*photos compliments of Zig Zags*

1. When/how did you learn to crochet?
I can't even REMEMBER, probably since I was born :)! But I do know that my mother definitely taught me everything, although at one point I had to re-learn everything since I stopped doing it for a long while :)

2. What inspired you to be a Crafty Entrepreneur?
A desperate need to be MORE than just MOM. I love, love, love my kids but I needed ME time you know?


3. What do you love most about your shop currently?
The colors! blues greens reds, yellows purples, yes yes yes! Item-wise it would have to be all my necklaces that I have recently posted :)

4. What can we expect to see from you in the future?
Clothing! I just bought my first surger, and I can't wait to make some things, I have lots of ideas already, I was just waiting on the proper tools to make them !


5. If you could have a super power what would it be?
NEVER NEED SLEEP! I would get SOOO much more done if the pesky Sandman kept away! Plus before I had kids I was a complete night owl. I could stay up all night long and feel just fine but now I know I will regret it if I stay up too late (especially since my 3 year old son likes to wake up early and have a picnic with random food in front of the fridge with the door wide open...and for WHO KNOWS how long!) GRRR! :)


6. Anything else you would like to mention?
I just wanted to mention to any new Etsiens a few things I have learned in the short amount of time I have been running my shop: I have found, (and read) that really you should focus on a small selection of items at first, see what sells well, and MAKE MORE! I know you want to go crazy showing the world EVERYTHING you can do, but seriously, it will cause you a lot less stress to just take it easy, and find your niche. Also, make friends, read Etsy's forums, and comment comment comment... and NOT in a spammy sort of way, but a friendly get-to-know-you-and-support-you sort of way :) This is all about community, and communication and friendship, USE it! It is not only beneficial, but FUN!

Well, aside from the necklaces mentioned here (the colors on the prize piece are GREAT!) I think the wee cacti are grand! Making them pincushions is too cute!
