1. When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging a few months after I opened my Etsy shop, because I wanted to share the pictures that customers sent me after they used my products at their parties. Customer photos are my favorite thing, so I always wanted to share them, even when my only blog followers were my very best friends! Since then it’s grown so much. The more you put into a blog, the more you get out of it.
2. Tell us a little about your blog, your Etsy store and where you are from.
In my online shop, I sell personalized paper goods and DIY printables, and I specialize in children’s birthday parties. I have over 50 themes to choose from, so there’s a little something for everyone! I live in Maryland, where I work out of a home office that my assistants and I share. It’s just big enough for all of us AND my many shipping supplies.
On my blog, I talk about birthday parties, food, crafts, DIY projects… basically anything that my shop customers might like to read about or find fun!
3. If your house were on fire, what would you grab first?
My dog Charlotte. Although I wouldn’t really have to grab her, she follows me everywhere – much less in an emergency!
4. Describe your dream home.
I’d love to live in an old house with lots of charm, beat up wood floors, and an effortless shabby chic style. The kind of place where you’re not afraid to put a glass on the table without a coaster, and where scratches add character.
5. Holidays are right around the corner, what are you wishing for?
The older I get, the more I love Christmas for every reason except for the “stuff.” So there are no flashy presents on my list – just a nice, quiet holiday is all I need!
