Freebie Friday


Freebie Friday #1

ok everyone - I am kicking off Freebie Friday with an awesome Etsy shop: mboclair

She told me a little about herself and is also offering up my favorite item in her shop to giveaway!!

A Mini Monster zipper bag! I am so excited about this item - I think I might have to order one for every family I know.

Here is a little about her:

What is your (first) name and your shop name?
Hi- my name is Melissa . I have 2 stores - and Thank you for interviewing me for your blog. I hope your readers look around my stores and find items they like. I add new items just about every day. Some of the zipper bags are one of kind since I use fabric pieces that are out of print or no longer available. I also am always adding new items to my embroidery store and can take custom orders.

Tell us a little bit about yourself, married, kids, work, ect?
I am a married 38 year old SAHM to 4 sweeties living in the Dallas / Fort Worth area.. I have 3 boys- 11. 8, an 4. My little princess is 16 months. I love sewing and doing embroidery. Besides sewing- I am very involved in the PTA at the school .

When did you open your etsy shop and what motivated you to? I opened my store in July 2008 but just really started focusing on saleing in the last few months. Having a store on Etsy is much easier than a website or selling on EBay . People come to Etsy to look for unique and creative artsian items.

What is your favorite thing to make and why?
I like the zipper bags that I have in various sizes but the paci pods and mini monsters are probably my favorites.The mini monsters are unique because they each will have a little difference in the way their hair comes out. I also have fun creating new names for each one. I have plans to come out with one for every letter of the alphabet so the looks will start to be different other than solid color mini monsters . Keep an eye out for new ones every week.

What is your favorite thing to do besides crafting?I like to spend time with my family, cook, and go to the beach and Disneyworld. We try to go every couple years.

What is a fun fact about you? I have would love to own a Bed and Breakfast with a small gift store and tea house some day. My husband and I talk about it often. He wants to buy a haunted one though- but I do not think I could handle that!! My dream vacation is to go to Hawaii- so perhaps in a few years I will get to. I am just afraid that once I go there- I will never want to come back. I guess it is the risk one has to take- lol!

Here is some other super cute things in her shop -

She has been very nice to offer one of 3 Mini Monster bags in the giveaway. The winner will have the option of Zany Allan, Eerie Edgar, or Blue Bob.
