An Interview with Hilda from WarmandFuzzyBaby UPDATED 2/22/10

Time to meet Hilda from WarmandFuzzyBaby...yet another adorable shop about to basically be closed down if something doesn't change...

Tell me a little bit about your background in arts and crafts.
I am a stay at home mom. I was a critical care nurse who started selling on Etsy after rediscovering crocheting. I`ve seen my mom crocheting my whole life and took an interest in it since I was a little girl. She also taught me how to sew yo yo`s at the age of four which has also become a lifelong joy. Sewing that is.
When did you first start creating things?
I started at the age of four.
What were the first things you created? and how did your creativity progress from there?
I started making yo yo`s using inexpensive fabric and a yarn needle. I found it amazing. Crocheting was a way of amusing myself until the past two years. I have also started to make crochet patterns like crazy!
Is this your only business or do you do other things as well?
This is my only business. other than being a stay at home mom!
Do you still dream about making other things? If so, what?
I love making many many things Like: hairbows, sewing, ATC`s ACEO`S, card making, tags, the list is endless and I would need 42 hours a day just on Etsy if I wanted to sell any of it.
How did you hear about Etsy?
A friend found it looking for a pattern.
Any words of advice to others?
Never give up on your dreams. Never stop creating and being supportive because that will be your artistic legacy. It is a powerful lesson to teach your children.
How will the new law by CPSIA affect you and your shop?
I will not be able to sell any of my handmade items since they were geared to kids under 12. I will have to sell only patterns leaving me short.

Unfortunately Hilda has found that she needs to put her family first and has decided to close her shop. Updated 2/22/10
