What got you started with Etsy?
I have always loved crafting since I was a child. Creating something, then taking a step back to look at how beautiful the item turned out. My husband was thinking of writing his first book. We were chatting about eventually making a website for his books. A free gift idea came about during our chats. From there I bought some ribbon, glue gun, beads and a few charms. I made my first bookmark and immediately figured out the ins and outs of creating one. It was natural for me. Once I made the first one, I could not stop! I then made several different bookmarks. They turned out so well, that I started looking online for places to sell my crafted items. I happened upon Etsy first. I read about Etsy first before I opened my shop. I then opened my shop on December 1st 2010.
What is your favorite part of your business?
My favorite part is when I get to hear back from customers. I love to hear how happy they are with their purchases. I also love it when my work inspires people.
How did you get the idea of making medieval bookmarks?
My idea for the medieval bookmarks came about when my husband wrote his first book. I started thinking how wonderful it might be to see a dragon and sword charm on the end of a bookmark. I use velvet and tapestry ribbons because they give it a rich genuine look and feel.
