Introduce Yourself: My name is Michelle Janzen, I am a work at home mom.
What is the name of your shop? I named my shop Smashingly Cute because I love making anything cute, including smash outfits!
How long has your Etsy shop been open? My shop has only been open since the beginning of October and I am already getting sales and custom orders!
How long have you been doing your craft? I have been sewing for kids for almost 18 years!
How did you get started? Shortly before I had my first daughter I found an adorable vintage pink and purple singer sewing machine at a garage sale and I got the idea that I would like to make fitted cloth diapers. I had very little sewing knowledge but needed instructions, so I looked online for some things; using the internet at that time was sometimes an ordeal! I found a manual online and talked to my grandmother about where to start. Eventually through trial and error I figured out how to sew!
Where can people find you online? I post most of my items and updates on craft shows at www.facebook.com/smashinglycute
What's been your best Etsy experience? My very first order was a custom request, that feels pretty cool!
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about your shop or yourself? I provide quality handmade busy books, Lego mats, custom children's clothing and various accessories, I am also taking custom orders!
