Giveaway Contest With DLA Bead Design

Ladybug: What a rainy week we have had here in Florida.  I wonder if the leaves are changing yet up north?  

Who's in the Spotlight this week?
Sunshine:  Our featured member in the spotlight this week:
 Here's the interview I conducted with Debra:

1. What do you enjoy most about having your own Etsy shop?

I enjoy working on the computer and learning new things that can be done with the computer. I also enjoy working with other Etsy shop owners and their positive outlooks and passion in selling their own items.
A lot of people work long and hard to create and craft items to sell on Etsy.

2. I read in your profile that you love working with beads. Can you tell us when and how your love of beads started?
I  grew up in N.J. by the beach and, as a child I worked with beads and also painted my own art work. I am pretty much self-taught.  My parents where crafty people and so were my brother and sisters.  I was involved in 4-H for 9 years as a child and then I spent 2 years as a leader in 4-H.  So crafting was whatever and whenever as a child.

3. What is your short-term goal for your shop? And what is your long-term goal for your shop?

My short-term goal is to make it to 60 sales by Christmas.

My long-term goal is to see how my sales go on Etsy and then maybe to start selling my art work that I have painted.  My long term goals are ever changing and evolving
