It's giveaway day again! :) To-day, I have a lovely sponsor in my garden ::

{click to "enter" shop}

One of the sweetest Etsy shops around, Shop Brydferth is a must to visit, selling the prettiest headbands, jewelry, shoe clips, and other pretty hair accessories. :) 



:: the interview :: 


Me :: How delighted I am to have you here in my garden. Thank you so much for joining me to-day. 
Would you mind starting by telling my readers a little bit about yourself?



Hailey Rose :: I'm a late 20 something married, soon to be new mommy who loves fabric, flowers and nature. I grew up on a farm and still raise sheep with my darling husband Darren. 


Me :: What encouraged you to start an Etsy shop and when was it opened?



Hailey Rose :: I opened my first Etsy shop, impulseART.etsy.com February 2009 after reading about Etsy.com in my local newspaper. impulseART features photography, hand painted art and vintage items. I opened my second shop, Brydferth.etsy.com a few months later in November 2009. I had to fill the void of fabric somehow so I self taught myself to make flowers out of fabrics. 

Me :: Are there any particular Etsy shops that inspire you?



Hailey Rose :: There are so many amazing artists on Etsy. Just seeing all the creativity bubbling out of everywhere is enough to keep one inspired

Me :: Name a few of your top-selling items.


Hailey Rose :: Brooches and Bobby Pins are probably the top two. 

Me :: What is perhaps, the most enjoyable part about owning your own shop?



Hailey Rose :: The most enjoyable part of having my own shop is I get to be creative every day or how ever often I desire to play in my room of fabrics.

 Me :: What inspires you as a crafter?



Hailey Rose :: Nature. Life. People.

Me :: I love your shop’s name! Is there a specific concept or story behind it?

Hailey Rose :: There is a specific background to the shop name I chose. Brydferth is the Welsh word for Beautiful. My mothers side is all from Wales and all but her still live there. I picked Brydferth because it is unique ... maybe a little hard to remember though ... and it ties me back to my family who live so far away in such a scenic little country. 

Me :: For the new Etsy shop owners out there, do you mind sharing a few of tips or things that you have learned through experience?



Hailey Rose :: Photography is key. Make sure you have great lighting 
Make things you actually LOVE to make. It shows in your work. 
Always try to make things a little better each time, quality AND customer service is key.and an interesting subject. 

Me :: Is there any thing else you would like to add? Life is short.


Hailey Rose :: Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers. 

Thank you so much, Hailey for allowing me to interview and for generously sponsoring this giveaway to-day.
I pray that your business flourishes this year. Oh, and congratulations on your new baby!!! :)
