Featured Artist for the week~ Doll Closet

My second featured artist will be with a actual sewer ~ of doll clothes. I'm sure she sews other tings, but her shop is filled with lovely clothes for dolls. Most of them are for 18" dolls but she takes custom orders for any size doll. I picked out my favorite outfit:
~wonder if that comes in adult size...:)

Here is here interview:

What is your shop's name and where are you located (url)
My shop’s name is DollCloset and the url is http://DollCloset.Etsy.com

How long have you been in business?
Going on 7 months now, on Etsy, although I had sold a bit at farmer’s markets before hearing about Etsy. :)

What motivated you to go into the crafting business?
I had been creating doll clothes as gifts for friends and family, and my friend Ashley is the first who suggested I sell them. (Her shop: http://DCStuff.Etsy.com ) I've fallen hard for these necklaces ~Beautiful!!

What's is your favorite item you've ever made?
This one is my current favorite. That could change though! I'm always coming up with new ideas.

It's a good day when ...
I wake up to a sale. It’s always so exciting!

Do you have any advise for someone who wants to open a shop on Etsy?
I guess the biggest thing would be - just be patient. Selling on Etsy has it’s ups and downs, sometimes I’ll go a couple weeks without a sale, and then other times I’ll have several sales all at once. You just have to stick at it, and keep going even when it’s “slow”. :)
