how did you learn to do what you do?
Well, I learned to paint long ago, and through school took every art class possible, I've always been extremely creative. As for the other stuff in my shop, I learned them either through research, or exploration&trial and error. Honestly, a lot of times when I know what I want to make but am not sure how to go about it, I look up a couple ideas (or ways of making it) and see what works best for me collaboratively. :)

where do you find your inspiration?
Life. Honestly. My smelly jellys I was inspired because I wanted to know how to make them myself when I saw a woman who created similar, and I wanted to be able to do it myself and my way. Spring Inspires my flower pots. Necessity was my inspiration for lip balm because I can't used a lot of things on the market because they make my lips chapped, and my paintings - life inspires them; sometimes its something I see outside, love, a friend's baby, a quote etc. I'm constantly adding new things to the shop.

what is your favorite product in your shop?
This is a hard one! I love all of my stuff and have at least one thing out of my shop that I use every day. Probably my lip balms since I made them out of a need and others found a love for them. I use mine every single day.

give us one tip for aspiring handmade artists.
Create what YOU want to create, and what works for you. What you make is a great expression of you - and if you don't love what you do, then what's the point?
