Pink Apron Cook" Theme.
With Mother's Day approaching I wanted to create something that is a great gift idea for all of our hard working moms out there. These are also great as birthday gifts, or you can keep it for yourself!
This recipe box is currently on sale in the Cokie Pop Boutique. They come with a set of matching recipe cards. This is sure to add fun to any kitchen!
Now to the wonderful giveaway this week. Mary has a beautiful shop on Etsy called Dining Out. If you comment below you have the chance to win 2 beautiful Damask Hand Towels. Now on to meet this talented artist.
How did you come up with your shop name?
I chose the name "diningout" for my shop because dining out is something I enjoy doing. But after I registered with Etsy, I realized that perhaps I should have chosen a more appropriate name, something that portrayed what I was trying to accomplish. Initially I tried using the name "Sewing is my Passion" but it was already taken.
How did you get started selling online?
Since I retired from 38 years of teaching, I was looking for a new direction in my life. My very creative daughter who also sells with Etsy, encouraged me to list my products. I have done a lot of sewing for family and friends in the past. I truly loved doing all of these things but it was time to further challenge myself and grow in a different direction.
What do you want customers to know about your products?
My products are designed and created by me. I even do some of my own digitizing. All of my products are made from top quality fabrics and threads and I really try to limit myself to machine washable items. All of my designs are interchangeable. You can choose an embroidery design, color of fabric and product, whether it be a placemat, runner or pillow cover, and create your own item through a custom listing.
What other hobbies or passions do you have?
I love to travel. One of my favorite places to go is the California coastline. I have been there many times in the past 20 years and I highly recommend it. If you are looking for a picturesque, peaceful holiday, you must go.
What’s your supply addiction?
Do you have a blog? Twitter? Facebook? Website?
I do not have a twitter or blog. I do have a facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/diningout/306295992591
