What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? Laizy Daisy Designs - http://laizydaisydesigns.etsy.com

What tag categories do you specialize in? Change purses, felt appliqu├ęs, tote bags, stuffed items, ornaments


Do you create for children or adults, women or men? mostly women and kids

What do you like about Etsy? I love that a virtual craft show exists! It's so much fun to just poke around and see what other people are making as well. It's inspiring!



Where do you find inspiration for your products? I love the Japanese kawaii style and aranzo aranzi styles. http://english.aranziaronzo.com/ It's adorable and so simple!

What do you love about your business? I love that I am actually FINISHING projects … and finishing enough of them to consider trying to sell them, do shows, etc …
