Etsymom Giveaway #3 - StrawberrieRose (Closed)

Today's Giveaway is hosted by StrawberriesRose, a beautiful store with lots of cute Tutus, not to mention the adorable Zhu Zhu Pet tutus and mohawks. The creator/owner of this store is Aimee and below is a little more information on her and her store:

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?

My etsy shop is Strawberrie Rose. It is a name my daughter who is now 8 decided at age 3 would be her daughter’s name one day. I have been an etsymom member for about 1 week now.

How did you get started as an artist?

In fall of 2009 I decided that I was not satisfied with my normal day to day job. I made the decision to venture off and test my creative side. I have three children who have deeply influenced me with all items “Girly” so I decided it would be perfect to make children’s tutu pettis. In addition, when the Zhu Zhu pet craze hit – I then came up with the idea to make Zhu Zhu Tutus and mohawks which was featured worldwide in The Associated Press on December 3rd.
What sets you apart from other people making similar items?

I feel that my tutus Pettis are different from others out there as they are very unique in appearance. I am a huge fan of embellishments and love to include them on my tutu pettis. All of my tutu pettis and none tied tutus are extra fluffy and I pay very close attention to every detail. It is very important to me that my customers are thrilled when they receive an item that I have created just for them.

What’s your favorite valentine’s item in your store?

I love both my Hello Kitty Inspired Tutu Pettis. They have Valentines embellishments on them that make them very special and unique. They are also super fluffy and girly.

Give us one tip on how you managed to create/sell/manage your store and at the same time be a busy mom?

Oh gosh… this is a good one. Since I also have an 8-6 pm 7 days a week job writing for law firms and caring for a 2 ½ year old at home, while I also have a 5 ½ year old and 8 year old with different school schedules it can get crazy. My advice to anyone out there is first to take a deep breath, focus, and truly believe in yourself. Second get organized, be precise and promote, promote, promote. Also, following up with customers right away is also key to selling. If they have a question about your product and they do not hear from you soon, they are likely to move on and find something else. Also, have a genuine love for what you create and truly understand that you are giving someone else in this world a little piece of you and what you are about.

Aimee is giving away any Tutu Petti or Tutu from her store, StrawberrieRose, or the winner can choose any four (4) zhu zhu tutus gift packages!
