True Life: MaruMaru
It's that time of the week again! Interview time!
We've had 4 inches of snow here in Michigan and it's still going strong! In an hour I am getting my hair cut in a bit by a woman who used to do hair and make-up for the show Lost. First I thought... HOW COOL! Then I thought, wait, she did hair and make-up for a show where people were deserted on an island... :s We'll see how it goes!
Now on to meet MaruMaru! (All photos are click-able... Enjoy!)
MaruMaru, AKA Michelle, is a 23 year old crafter from Honolulu, HI. I am very jealous that she isn't drowning in snow right now! She has a fantastic little shop and took time to answer some questions about her Etsy life.
When did you begin crafting?
2 years ago
What inspires your crafting?
Retro and vintage-inspired portraits and events. I'm also inspired by exotic places in Japan where I would spend my summers around my grandmother's garden.
Have you even done a craft show? If so how was your experience?
I've never had the chance to be in a craft show, so much to learn!
Do you have any pets?
I have a tuxedo cat named Neko, it means "cat" in Japanese :)
What's your favorite material to work with?
Resin is my favorite because it gives it that glass-like finish.
What is your favorite item in your shop?
My favorite item in my shop is my Midnight Blue Exotic Flower Necklace
What do you wish you could make?
I wish I could create a locket to capture a favorite memory and have it play whenever you opened it.
Do you have a Personal Motto?
When there's nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.
My Favorite From MaruMaru's Shop:
Thank you so much for answering my questions MaruMaru!!! Happy Holidays to you and your family!
