Meet Alecia of Cherished, our Saturday Artisan. She made cute Amigurumi and more.
Isn't that Bitsy the littlest elephant adorable? Here is the description of Bitsy.
Bitsy has a big personality for someone so little!! I mean she's only 4" trunk to tail and only stands 2 1/2 " tall (if you count to the top of her ear...and trust me she does!!)
She's made friends with Ollie and Timothy but being the adventurer she is she can't wait to say goodbye and meet new friends!!!
But she does know since she is so little it's better to not play with kiddos under 5.
Let's get to know Bisty's creator, Alecia a little bit more, shall we?
Tell us a bit about yourself and what arts/ crafts that you make?I'm a SAHM of 3 kiddos (5,almost 4 and 9 months) I make jewelry (it seems to be the craft I always go back to:)) I crochet, I love making duckies to look like other animals and just recently started making tiny amigurumi animals using embroidery thread, I make handpainted magnets and I do cards too(though I've taken a break from them I'll be starting them back up soon:))
What is the story behind your shop name?Honestly I picked it when I was in my teens..I had fun making jewelry and loved wearing what I made cherished just seemed to fit and I hoped people would cherish my creations as much as I did.
Which part of creation process that you enjoy the most?The finished product of course:D unless the end product ended in a disaster:) and of course that happens sometimes
Could you share on how your organize your products, we all can use a little tips here and there in this department?Haha organize are we supposed to do that lol every few months I go through supplies and try to put like things together :)
What is your best seller?Not sure yet everyone seems to love my amigurumi and my solar system magnets but haven't sold enough to have a best seller.
What inspires you?My kids, sometimes other crafters and sometimes things I watch on tv :)
Any advice for others running their on-line shop?Network!! join groups make friends, other crafters will be able to help you out and give advice :)
What does handmade mean to you?
It means love :) someone took the time to make something usually from scratch and filled it with there love and time.
