PART 1: Interview With DKRScrapNCraft

I Love getting to know my fellow talented Etsians! So today, we are going to get to know the woman behind DKRScrapNCraft! She has the cutest little cards and other paper crafts. She is also offering readers of my blog a coupon!! Isn't that awesome!?

She is giving my readers 15% off any item. You can either convo her with the code before purchase and she will adjust the price or you can type the code in message to seller and she will refund via paypal! BE SURE TO USE COUPON CODE: BLOG01

So now on with the interview:

***TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF. I am a stay at home mommy and work part time (one day a week) as a dental hygienist. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 5 years and we now have our 8 1/2 month old baby boy. I love being a mommy! I started selling on Etsy because I love what I do and I love being able to stay at home with my baby as much as I can! Someday I would love to be able to leave my other job!

***IS THIS (ETSY) YOUR FULL TIME JOB? Being a mommy is my full time job! I sell on Etsy in my spare time!! My shop is doing well, but it definitely is not successful enough at this point to be considered full time! SIDENOTE: That's great! If only more people looked upon being a mommy as their full time job!!

***WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION? My inspiration comes from the great feeling I get after a completed project. It is always so nice to look at my finished art and feel a sense of completion and admiration!

***WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ITEM TO CREATE? I would say my favorite item to create is any type of greeting card. They are so fun, because they are like a miniature scrapbook layout. This allows me to do what I love and still get to have variety of change, as it does not involve as much detail as a scrapbook layout!

***WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ITEM? This BABY card is my favorite at the moment! I think it turned out really nice!

***WHAT IS YOUR MOST POPULAR ITEM? I have sold the most of my hot pink and zebra mini thank you card sets.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the second half of the interview with DKRScrapNCraft. She'll give you some of her best tips that have helped her become sucessful.
