Have you been to The Chocolate Astronaut? If not - you really should check out the shop. She has really wonderful jewelry, that is quite unique! And she offered to give a couple of her items to one lucky winner :)
*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm from a kind of small town- Owensboro, KY. There's not a lot to do here, and it's pretty quiet, but I think my boyfriend and I will be moving to Indianapolis in a year or two. I've been sewing ever since my grandma taught me, when I was little. I am a college student with a passion for creating. Sewing, sculpting, needle felting, painting, drawing, building, etc. I also love squids!
*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
Well, my shop name came from my original user name on Etsy. It was something I thought I heard someone say ("choconaut"). I thought it sounded cool, and decided it was a compilation of "chocolate" and "astronaut". So The Chocolate Astronaut, however unusual, came from that. I started my shop as soon as I turned 18 and could get a debit card and paypal account of my own. I had many dolls and random things that I had made in the past and wanted to sell. I didn't have a job at the time, so it sounded exciting. My first real sale was a pink fuzzy moose. It was custom made, and I am still super proud of how it turned out!
*What or who inspires you?
I am inspired by fashion, other peoples' cute blogs, and of course, nature.
*What are 5 things you want people to think when they see your product?
I hope they think my product is awesome! Haha. Otherwise, I hope people see my items and know that they are handmade by me, they are unique, and time and thought went into each item.
*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I have a giant fabric stash (most of which came from the 8 months I worked at a fabric store). I really like fleece and cotton prints. I also have a lot of beads, and keep buying more.
*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I like to bake, play with my parakeets, take road trips, kayak, go for walks and bike rides, and just hang out with my boyfriend.
*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
I love making any of my plushies! They just turn out so cute. Lately I've been making bow tie necklaces, and I really enjoy that.
*Are there other places on the net we can find you?
I have a fairly new blog, and would love some new followers. http://initiatelifesequence.blogspot.com/
