#WildeFeature - Caitlin of Crafty Caitie

Facebook



When did you open your shop, and what inspired you to start selling?
I opened my shop in September of 2011, shortly after I got married to a United States Sailor and moved over 1,000 miles away from family. It all started as a way to meet new people and keep myself busy in a new state. At first, I made crochet hats, blankets, and lots of other goodies. After I found out I was pregnant with twins, I shut down my shop for a while. When I reopened, I did a complete overhaul. I now make personalized blankets, burp cloths, and taggies.

Classic Striped Tea Wallet - love these


When did you open your shop, and what inspired you to start selling? 
I began selling my goods in 2013. I love creating- the act of making things truly brings me great joy and is my personal stress-reliever. I tend to produce many goods and HAD to start selling to support my further crafting.


Super cute summer placemats!


What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why? 
My current favorite are my placemats. I try and make them bright, fun and expressive- they dress up any table so nicely!

#WildeFeature : Moon Cat of Mooncat Designs

King's Ransom Ring


When did you open your shop, and what inspired you to start selling?
I opened my Storenvy shop a little over a year ago but I have been selling online for almost three years and selling in person for many more! I was into making jewelry while I was still in high school, and I'd make earrings and sell them in art class. I could never get into the routine of a "regular" job, and the idea of working long hours to support someone else's dream didn't appeal to me as much as tirelessly chasing my own. I sold and shipped my first painting in 2008 and Mooncat Designs was born. I cannot imagine doing anything else for the rest of my life.

LAWLESS Universal Light Amethyst Necklace


What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why? 
My favorite item in my shop at the moment is an amethyst necklace from my latest collection, LAWLESS. I played with crushed stones a lot in this collection and I absolutely love the way they take shape as I create with them. This particular piece is my showstopper! It has double termination and killer marbling with little iridescent bits captured inside the crystal.
