Etsy Shop Spotlight
Lil Noodle Bug
When did you start doing your craft?
I have actually been a crafty person my whole life, but just in the past year I have developed my niche and opened my shop!
Who inspires you?
My babes – they push me to be the best person I can be.
Where do you create? What surroundings get your creative juices flowing?
I create in my living room after the babes go to sleep. I find that if I just start cutting and gluing I keep growing from one idea to the next.
What is your favorite piece to create and why?
I LOVE to create the flower pins. It all started when I needed an accessory for a function so I created one 30 min before I left and since then I have created an array of colors, created hairclips and sewn them on onesies!!! I also love to create the wreaths.
What’s your biggest challenge owning an online store?
The biggest challenge is time. Since I am a mom of 2 and work full time, the only time I have to create and market online is after 8pm during the week and slim to none on the weekend.
How do you promote your store?
I promote on fb and twitter. I have also reached out to quite a few people for a feature.
What advice would you give to other Etsy Store owners?
Just go for it. Don’t get frustrated if you don’t have sells right off the bat, just stick with it and keep faith.
I would love to offer a 10% discount to all your readers – using the code: BLOGGIVEAWAY.
