EtsyMom Giveaway #2 - RowanMayfairs

Welcome to the Etsymom's Valentine's Day Giveaway #2! Today's giveaway is from RowanMayfairs. This EtsyMom specializes in boutique clothing and accessories! she is giving away a pair of Valentines Hearts Patchwork Slip on Pants

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?
My store name is RowanMayfairs. A few months give or take a few either way.

How did you get started as an artist?
Last year I was having trouble deciding on which outfit I wanted my best friend to make for my daughter’s 2nd birthday pic’s. She kept telling me if I would learn to sew then I wouldn’t have to decide between outfits. So July of 2009 I bought a peasant top pattern from youcanmakethis.com and got started. My best friend encouraged me to start selling cause there was room for BOTH of us on the internet.

What sets you apart from other people making similar items?
Maybe the fact I’m not doing this to support my family so I can take a bit lower of a profit.

What’s your favorite valentine’s item in your store?
My Valentines Day Patchwork ruffle pants

Give us one tip on how you managed to create/sell/manage your store and at the same time be a busy mom?
My daughter is 2yrs old, so she can happily occupy herself in her room or even sit at her table in my office/craft room while I sew. I take a break in between steps and read to her, take a sip of pretend tea or maybe build with blocks.
I have a regular full time job, have a 2yr old, plus a husband and house. So at times it is difficult to balance sewing and family.
