Friday Feature - greetingswithlove

Hello and welcome to another addition of "Friday Feature". I want to introduce a fun member of our team! She is fantastic... Could you describe one of your typical workdays for me? Wow, my typical day start at 5 am, make some breakfast for my son that has football training every day at 5.45 am and after school from 3.45 to 6.45pm. After that I get ready for my work from 6.30 am until 2.30 pm. From Monday to Friday at the stockroom in a retail store close to my house. Then when I get home prepare my dinner and wait until my husband pick up my kid and we have dinner, clean the kitchen and have son relaxing time in front of the TV.
What part of owning a etsy shop do you find most challenging? Keep the traffic coming. What do find most enjoyable? Using my imagination to do new and different thing every time. Do you have a favorite hobby? I love take pictures of everything and most of the time are pictures of my son’s games. How many hours do you spend on (your etsy craft) in a typical week? Between 7 and 12 hours a week. How long have you been (doing your etsy craft) for? More or less 6 years. How did you get into your etsy craft? A friend of mine that is not here anymore, tall me about it. Is this the only craft you do? Nope, but it is the only one that I can dedicate time. What is your favorite item from your shop and why? America the beautiful, maybe because it represent part of the American dream, the freedom that many of us do not have in our native country.
