I was lucky enough to talk with Moorea about what inspired her to open an Etsy shop. Her story is very inspiring and I am sure that it will inspire many of you. I think it is oh so sweet of Moorea to answer some questions for my little blog. So, thank you Moorea! She's not only super successful but super sweet too! Here is what Moorea had to say,
"When I started my etsy shop, it was just sort of an experiment. I was an illustration major in college and opened the shop during my final year of university. I wanted to explore selling my illustrations online and a little of my new found love of jewelry making. The first pieces I made were pretty rough as I had only just started making jewelry and my vision for my illustration work wasn't very clear yet. But over time, I decided I wanted to turn my shop into just a jewelry shop focusing in a modern/bohemian/woodsy girl with a little edge sort of style. (I plan on opening a separate illustration shop soon!) I decided to turn my jewelry making hobby into a business while taking Indie Biz 2.0 which is an annual Indie Business course run by Leigh Ann of FreckledNest.com and Jill Munroe of LuneVintage.com. You can check out the course for Winter 2012 here "
I can't wait to see her illustration shop, she is such an amazing artist! I feel like I've gotten so many pointers and tips from these great Etsy shop/bloggers every Tuesday. I'm so grateful to have learned from such amazing people. I hope you all have been finding this as interesting and worthy as I have. I would absolutely love to take the Indie Business course at some point (have any of you readers taken it?) and to focus my jewelry vision as Moorea mentioned she did.
Thank you all for stopping in and to Moorea for being a part of my Toast Tuesday!
