Let's get to know a little more about Crystal:
What does your life outside of Etsy/blogging look like?
I’m a stay at home mommy of two adorable little girls, Aubrey 5 and Olivia 2. They keep me busy all day long. We play, learn, and make lots of messes. When I’m not busy with them I try and sneak in some cooking, cleaning, and anything else I need to get done. I’ve been married to the sweetest guy for over 6 years. We just moved back to our home town and are loving the small town life.
Describe yourself in three words.
Crafty, easy going, and caring
Fall piece you can’t live without: my brown sweater. I love it.
Most recent fashion-related purchase: new jeans. I was in desperate need.
Do you craft/make anything else outside of what’s in your shop?
Absolutely! I love all types of crafts and share them on my blog www.crystalscraftspot.blogspot.com.
Any pet peeves? Most of my pet peeves come from driving like not people not using a blinker, or driving to close.
Bad habits? I’m easily distracted. I have so many unfinished projects because a new idea comes and I have to start it right away. Also our house suffers because of this as well. You always know when I finished something because our house looks like a tornado hit.
Desert-island food? I can’t live without pizza and Reeses peanut butter cups.
Another blog you follow regularly:
There are so many! My favorite is probably Sumo’s Sweet Stuff http://sumossweetstuff.blogspot.com. She crafts for her two little girls so it’s perfect for me.
I’ve been blogging for the last year and have been thinking about opening my own shop for a while. Since we moved back home we are trying to save up as much money to build a house. It seemed like the perfect time. I am hoping to help out with the saving a bit or at least cover my crafting addiction.
Significance of your shop name?
A and O come from my daughters Aubrey and Olivia. They are the ones that inspire me to create and often spark the ideas I have for my shop.
Favorite item in your shop right now?
Probably my heart onesie. It is so soft and sweet.
