It's Etsy feature and giveaway time again at Casa de Vegancraftastic! This week we'll get to know Penny and her cute shop, Gracey May. Gracey May is full of cute and unique hand embroidered home goods and accessories. Read on to the end of this post to find out how you can win a cool anchor embroidery piece from Gracey May! Let's get to know Penny and her shop:
1. How long has your Etsy shop been open?
My shop has been open since 2008, but it's only been about a year since I actually starting actively selling things and seriously working on my shop. I think I was intimated to get started because I spent so much time looking at how great everyone else's shops were and didn't think I could compete! I finally just stopped looking and concentrated on what I love to create and my shop came together!
2. How do you fit time to create into your day?
I have a 2 yr. old and 5 yr old, so it's VERY hard to find time during my day to be creative! I write down ideas as soon as I have them during the day and work on them at night after the girls go to bed.
3. Do you have any fun hobbies outside of your shop?
I would have to say my hobbies are hanging out with my girls and my husband - that's all I want to do these days! When I have time I love reading & researching about my family history. I'm working on writing a book (trying that is!) based on a journal my great, great, grandmother kept during the civil war.
