Who are you? Rebecca Sohoni

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link?

What tag categories do you specialize in? knitting, women's accessories

Do you create for children or adults, women or men? adult women

What do you like about Etsy? Etsy is a great opportunity to start a small business. It's a wonderful place to grow and blossom in a supportive atmosphere. Oh, and did I mention I love to shop on Etsy!!

Where do you find inspiration for your products? Mostly through my life experiences. But I also am inspired by nature, yoga, music and I read all the fashion magazines!!

What do you love about your business? Knitting has always been a stress reliever for me. I am a full time pharmacist and my day job is very stressful. My craft allows me to be creative in a "zen" like manner. Knitting is very meditative. Plus I love the joy my craft brings to other people!

What is your favorite product right now? Hmm, tough to pick one... I would have to say the Sweet Caroline shrug and the tranquility capelet~~ I'm so knitting myself one for the fall!

What makes you unique at Etsy? I love color!! I use all different colors, textures, vintage buttons, vintage lace and brooches in my work.

What other street teams are you a member of? I am a member and shop administrator for Fashion Design and Lifestyle team, and I am a member of MSOE (mad scientists of etsy)

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?
