Etsy Shop Feature - MegsCrochetJewels
Thank you to Meghan of MegsCrochetJewels for donating to Courage for Kristi for the second year in a row! Please check out her gorgeous creations and learn a little more about her below:
How long have you been crafting?
I have been crocheting since before i can remember! I actually don't even remember learning it's just always been a part of me:) I started crocheting wire about 5 years ago when I became interested in wire and bead art. I translated it over to crocheting and was HOOKED! Pun intended:)
When did you turn your hobby into a business?
I always crocheted baby blankets and scarves for gifts but when I started on the jewelry I always had it in my mind that I wanted to make it a business. At first it was just selling at little craft fairs and to family and friends. When I first started my Etsy shop I didn't know a lot and I just opened it and left it alone. About a year passed before I found a wonderful Etsy group and they put me on the right road.
What is your favorite Etsy shop?
You mean besides the Courage for Kristi shop right!;) Wow! That's a really hard question! It has evolved over time and I think now every month I have a new obsession! The last thing that I Favorited was a trio of spiders from www.etsy.com/shop/thedustyraven. This shop is really neat and I just love the Rusted Metal!
How has Breast Cancer effected your life? (if you are comfortable answering this question)
I have been fortunate in that I don't know anyone or have lost anyone to Breast Cancer. I do however have that fear in the back of my mind just because it is so prevalent. I do my monthly breast exams religiously and always try to remind others to do them as well. I also think it is important for women to know the risks of things like birth control that can increase your risks for the cancer.
Thank you Meghan!
