Let's Get Personal

So here it is all laid out on the table. Did a "Bare it all" Wednesday; probably more info than you ever really wanted to know about me ;O)

I was asked by some of my fellow Team EEAT members:
OK......Did you go to college??? If you did where, did you live there etc.....if not what did you do instead?

I did not go to college. I WAS offered a job with GE as an Accounts Payable clerk upon graduation but thought, I can't spend my life behind a desk doing paperwork so I stayed at my job at a card and gift store until I met my husband and moved out of state. PS I loved that job because my boss let me have free rein when it came to making up gift baskets and all sorts of creative endeavors.

How did you get started with your goodies? When did you start on Etsy, and how did you find about it?

I can't remember how I found out about Etsy but I was a buyer on Etsy long before I opened my shop in April 2008. Three years ago I sent my husband in to work with my peanut butter cups, everyone raved about them and I took local orders for my treats around the holidays. Helped save my sanity considering I had been a stay at home Mom for over eight years at the time. It has evolved into something that I absolutely love to do. Food is love.

Who are your 3 favorite etsy shops? There's so many good ones out there and I love hearing about them!

This one was really hard because there are so many great shops on Etsy but I narrowed it down to these three (for this week LOL):

carrymeaway~she made a fabulous tote for my mother in law and she shares my goal in getting rid of all those nasty plastic bags

PaulZozem~if you are looking for sterling silver jewelry he's your man, I've got a beautiful wedding band on my finger that he custom made for me

sweetpicklespottery~LOVE her pottery, 'nuff said

Whats your favorite treat that you make and why?

my favorite treat is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles, these things are truly addictive and have added a couple of inches to my waistline since I started making them Why do I like making them~cause I can eat any left overs ;O)

Anything else you'd like to ask fire away; I'm an open book.....
