Welcome to EtsyInterviews with B.Inspired Vintage & B.Inspired Supply

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Welcome to EtsyInterviews! I'm so excited to bring you interviews with the MANY talented and friendly Etsy sellers that I have met while running my own Etsy shops, B.Inspired Vintage and B.Inspired Supply. I have some really GREAT interviews lined up with tons of GIVEAWAYS, too! If you want to be featured, it's SO easy; just fill out this form and I will let you know if and when you are selected. Anyway, I'll just jump right in and get started by "interviewing" (and introducing) myself first...

Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi, I'm Krissy! I am a former art teacher turned full-time mama to two beautiful (and energetic) little ones under 3! I gave up a high school art teaching position to be a stay at home mom when we had to relocate from northern to southern Pennsylvania for my husband's work a few years back. It was the first time I'd left "home" and everyone thought I was CRAZY for leaving my teaching position, but it has proven to be a fun and worthwhile adventure. Etsy and the blogging community have made that transition even more fun!

Tell us a bit about your shop(s).
I love staying home with my kiddos, but I do find it hard to fit in much creative mama time. So I've been blessed to discover thrifting, which my little ones can do with me, as my new passion! I am completely addicted to the thrill of the hunt and always amazed at how a little cleanup and clever photography can transform something tossed aside into a treasure. I especially love anything colorful and fun. I share my fun & funky vintage finds in B.Inspired Vintage and B.Inspired Supply. My etsy shops and my blogs, B.Inspired Mama & now EtsyInterviews, give me the creative boost I need between all of the diaper-changes, children's books, playdates, and snuggle time!

What advice would you give other Etsy sellers?
I'm still learning as I go, but my advice would be to have great customer service, fast shipping, and don't be afraid to ask questions and learn from others. I visit other Etsy sellers that I admire and that are successful and soak up as much from them as possible. Oh, and spread the love via hearts! I'm a HUGE heart-er. I truly love something about each item or seller that I heart. I believe lots of people find me through the heart-trail that I leave behind.

Anything else you would like to share?
I'm excited to have just listed new vintage-inspired handmade creations in B.Inspired Vintage! And can't wait to make time to create some more.
