Well I have had a SUPER busy weekend! I worked 60 hours last week (whew) so Friday night was very chill, movies and popcorn. The kids watched Rango, and the adults watched Limitless (very good movie by the way, I may try to create those clear little pills. I could sure use them!) Saturday my son had a football game and I didnt do much after but clean and make jewelry. Saturday night, started with beer and appetizers at The Oaken Barrell then we met a couple of my friends at That place in Greenwood. (um I hate that damn bar, but we had fun) Sunday me and the kids spent most of the day at Chucke Cheese, yes I said Chucke Cheese.......I needed a xanax after that. I know why my kids have only been there 1 time EVER. I didnt volunteer to take them, we had a birthday party for my best friends daughter. They had fun,, so whatev. Came home and cleaned my butt off, got every last piece of laundry done, cleaned out my garage (its ALMOST ready to have a car in it!!!!!! YAY) and I got 3 bridal party orders made and several single orders. I am on a roll! So with that being said I am off to bed because again this week I am working 60 hours! Someone SHOOT ME!!! But I will be back tomorrow with my Etsy shop of the week feature, and let me tell you how excited I am about this one.. Hint- its a super cute childrens shop, and I mean her clothing is ADORBS!!!!!!! I have several things of hers in my "cart" for my stud maxwell. Sorry for the boring non picture post! I am not MIA, I swear, just working my BUTT off and being mommy! :)

I could seriously buy everything! Seriously! I will be purchasing myself one of those gorgeous eye pillows very soon! Please enjoy this interview and be sure and check out her awesome etsy shop! You will be in heaven!

~What is the name of your etsy shop and how did it come about?
I love Italy, and the language ~ "Dolce" means sweet in Italian...who doesn't wish for sweet dreams for their little angels?! My lavender sachets and eye pillows also have the same effect for adults. I cannot sleep without my eye pillow!
~Tell me about yourself...anything!
I love Europe, fine cuisine, wine, art, fashion, babies, and am learning to like football now that my boys are playing it!

~What do you sell on etsy and how long have you been making it?
I always have enjoyed creating, and using my hands. I love color, and was a makeup artist in the fashion world. I sew, draw, craft, and sculpt in alabaster. With the birth of my sons, I left my high profile LA/Hollywood maitre'd job to raise them. I started sewing voraciously, making them unique high quality heirlooms that I couldn't find in stores. As I received compliments, I started making things as gifts, and then started getting orders...In 2007 I opened my shop on Etsy, and have been building my business ever since!
~What are your hobbies?
After hand making everything myself, and doing all of the Social Networking that comes with an online business, my main hobby is my family. I am teaching my boys how to sculpt right now, a real lesson in patience!

I am obsessed with the beauty of weddings, although I personally will NEVER get married again (no way will my mind ever be changed) I love finding amazing ideas that you dont see at your everyday weddings. With 90% of my customers being brides and bridal parties, I would love to share with you some really cool "different" ideas! Enjoy!

~Tell me about yourself! Anything! My favorite drink at Starbucks is the Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte, I have three kids, they are all unschooled here at home and my life is pretty much messy and chaotic all the time.

~What goals do you have for yourself in the future? I'm constantly looking to improve my skill repertoire - and want to play with enamels and glass in my jewelry. I'd love to get to a point where my business is strong enough to support our family and my husband can stay home and manage the business side of things while I do what I love most - create! I'm looking to add more regional art fairs to my calendar and would love to get to the point where we are 'gypsies' for at least part of the year, traveling the country from art show to art show - taking time to explore along the way.
