One More Interview Today - Meet GoldtoneDesigns!

I'm doing two interviews today because I'm pretty sure I won't be able to post one tomorrow and I want to keep the momentum going...another wonderful shop we're endanger of losing...GoldtoneDesigns...

Tell me a little bit about your background in arts and crafts.
I was not interested in crafts, I'm sorry to say, until I saw a quilt in the local boutique and thought, "Hey! I can make that!" LOL (I have a tendency to start big!) I didn't know how to use a sewing machine at that time. Yep, I failed Home Economics in H.S.!!!

When did you first start creating things?
In 2001.

What were the first things you created? and how did your creativity progress from there?
Our newborn daughter was the inspiration to design a feeding pillow. The store bought pillows were too hard and I really wanted my baby girl to feel like she was laying on a cloud. The infant neck pillow was designed out of necessity to support our daughters neck from falling to one side, in the car seat.

Is this your only business or do you do other things as well?
Yes, this is my only business besides being a full time stay at home mom.

Do you still dream about making other things? If so, what?
►I dream of making a unique product line of luxurious toys and quilts for baby and children.

How did you hear about Etsy?
I read about Etsy in June of 2007 in TIME magazine.

Any words of advice to others?
Do not give up your dream of turning your love for handmade into a successful business.

How will the new law by CPSIA affect you and your shop?
I believe in a short amount of time, this will be amended. But in the meantime, I will continue to design products for baby & children
