Etsy Name: HomemadeZen
Location: Baldwinsville NY (just outside of Syracuse NY)
What I make: I design and crochet cute stuff toys for everyone!

What’s your favourite smell?
I have a lot of favourites, but my current favourite is lavender.

How long have you been doing your craft?
I've been crocheting since I was a little girl, and finally got into Etsy earlier this year.

Who/What inspires you in your craft?
I like crocheting because it's a way for me to relax and be creative. I can get inspiration from anywhere but I tend to like creating things that are cute and adorable.

What advice would you give Etsy sellers just starting out?
Take lots of good pictures and be patient. It's something that I'm still working on too...

How do you discover new things on Etsy?
I found a lot of new things from treasuries and also from chatting with other Etsy people on forms and chats. I've also found a lot of great shops by joining an Etsy team too!
