Who are you?
I am Melissa and I rock! (I also need a vacation, or at the very least, a nice long *uninterrupted* bubble bath)
What is your Etsy Shop Name/link?
Made By Melissa - http://madebymelissa.etsy.com
What tag categories do you specialize in?
Mostly jewelry - necklaces, bracelets, earrings. I have started listing some crocheted items as well - afghans, kitchen items, scarves
Do you create for children or adults, women or men?
Mostly women and girls, although I am working on some blankets and scarves for boys and men
What do you like about Etsy?
Its a place for crafters to come together and promote themselves and each other, it makes it easy to shop for unique handmade items. I also love that I can have my own store without having to create my own website - its very easy to sell and share your store address
What do you like about creating?
I love to make things, I picture the finished product in my head and get a great sense of accomplishment once I complete the product. I also love being able to change the goal as I go along it what I originally started out to make just isn't looking right.
What do you love about your business?
I love being in control. I can decide what I want to make and just let my creativity take me wherever it wants to.
What is your favorite product right now?
This is tough! I love all the things I list. I have a set of glass beaded bracelets with toggle clasps that I almost kept!
What makes you unique at Etsy?
I have quality jewelry that is affordable enough that you can buy something to match every outfit you own
What makes you unique as a woman?
My interests and activities span the spectrum - I am an environmental engineer by day, a crafter by night and a mommy and a wife 24/7.
What do you love about Kids?
Their excitement! Everything is new, fresh and fun when you are a kid, its something that I wish we could keep with us forever. When life stops being fresh and fun, that is when we get old.
