Tell us a bit about yourself, Tracylea.
A newly 30 year old (which has been a huge inspiration for me to get on the ball living my life) special events coordinator. I have a delightful 4 year old miss bossy pants at home. My husband and I work together at a small liberal arts college in Idaho. I love reading - I am absolutely obsessed with certain series and have to force myself to read new material. I like craft projects which are sometimes unusual but can be done in a variety of colors and are quickly finished.

What 5 words would you use to describe yourself?
1) Voracious
2) Verbose

3) Aspiring

4) Controlling

5) Crzy

Tell us a bit about your Etsy shop.
I JUST opened my shop at the end of January. One of my 2010 resolutions (in conjunction with a February milestone birthday of 30!) was to begin my etsy shop. I have typically made and made items and saved them in bin all year for a couple end of the year vendor fairs. It took too much fun out the crafting. I felt pressured to make things only before an event and with specific goals in mind. Etsy struck me (and still does) as an inexpensive avenue to see how I can inspire other crafters AND myself throughout the year. It offers me a place to receive constant feedback of items and business ideas. I hope the shop will be a continual source of inspiration. And I can't wait to begin posting more varied items.

What 5 words would you use to describe your shop?
1) Whimsical
2) Entertaining

3) Inexpensive

4) Understanding

5) Inspiring
