Laundry Monster....and a Giveaway! (Closed)

We Have a Winner!!!
Congratulations to Comment # 15
Selected by

I am a self proclaimed Etsy Junkie....and not just because I am myself an Etsian....hocking my wares to other self proclaimed Etsy Junkies....

I absolutely love finding other amazing shops....that carry unique...fabulous....drool worthy items....things that I know other mommies at the "mom park" would stop and say "where did you get that?"....and today I would say "Laundry Monster"

I am head over heels IN LOVE with Laundry Monster....Now I think my burp cloths are fantastic...but Laundry Monster takes my fantastic...and turns it in to her KaPlow...Schizam....Super Fabulicious!......

She offers Amazing hand dyed burp cloths, onesies and t-shirts for kids!...Each is unique...and special...and the colors and prints are to dye for!...(pun is intended)....

I had a chance to ask Cheryl the brillance behind the products some questions:

When did you start crafting and why?

I've been a graphic designer and photographer for many years but just started my shop in November 2008, and started sewing in April of 2009. I guess I just didn't have enough to do!

What do you love most about your craft?

I absolutely love fabric - cotton prints and linen. And color. I love creating these colors with dye and pairing them up with gorgeous prints.

What is your favorite item that you have available right now?

Hand dyed linen. I could stare at it all day long, specifically the hot pink and school bus yellow.

Do you have any exciting plans for your shop in the near future?

Pillow covers, made of my hand dyed linen and cotton prints. I've just got to find the time (it's so hard to put my shop on vacation, I'm afraid I'll miss something!)

What do you find the most exciting and rewarding part of being a mom?

I just love watching my two children become polite, funny, likable people. I have been very lucky.

What advice would you give to other moms who may be thinking of getting into crafting and perhaps wanting to sell online?

Be ready to put lots of time into it, have a marketing strategy, and don't sell yourself short. Your time is worth a lot!

Oh, I *so* love Etsy. I have to purposefully stay away from it because I get sucked into all the great stuff every time I'm on there and I end up buying a tonne!

I am in awe of funky crafters (like you and Laundry Monster!) because I am the opposite of crafty. I just get to enjoy your handiwork!

No need for baby products here, but just wanted to say that's some really cute stuff! Great interview too :)
