Interview 2: Jennifer from Lillyfuzz

It's time for another interview with an Etsy seller!  Today's interview is with Jennifer from Lillyfuzz.  Jennifer has graciously donated an item from her shop for a giveaway...and you get to choose what you want!  How cool is that?  

So, your choices are:  a hat, a pair of baby shoes or a set of wrist warmers.  If you'll go check out Lillyfuzz, you'll see just how darn adorable everything is.   


To enter you must 

1.  Follow my blog or "like" The Curious Crow on FB 
and...
2.  Go to Lillyfuzz on Etsy and leave a note about something in her shop in the comments here. 

It's that easy!  

The contest is open through Thursday, and I'll announce the winner on Friday.  


1. Who are you and what do you do?
Blue Drawstring Baby Booties
My name is Jennifer Hix and I craft under the name Lillyfuzz Crochet. I make hats, shoes, toys, and other little items for kids. I also make a few items for adults. I grew up in Arizona and have a degree in Biology from the UofA. I worked in HR until we moved to Texas and now I stay home with my kids.


2. Why do you do what you do? 
I have never been a very organized person so it came as a real shock to me when I found out how satisfying it is to take a pile of chaotic, messy yarn and turn it into something fantastic. There are some yarns that are so soft it is a real treat to work with them and luckily for me they are great for making baby gear. I love everything about crochet and the icing on the cake is the chance that someone might see and enjoy using an item I made. I like making things for other peoples children as much I as like crafting for my own!


Rosie Posie Baby Hat (How Adorable!)
3. How long have you been doing it? (Your craft, not doing IT)
Not very long actually, only 3 months or so. I kept seeing all these darling hats I wanted to buy for my kids and I figured if other people can make them then why can't I? So I went out and bought some basic supplies and loaded up some youtube how to vids and that was it. My first attempts looked terrible but I practiced in every free moment and suddenly I was turning out things there were nice. I started out as a buyer on Etsy but I wanted to put an item in the AA charity sale so I made a little shop of my own and here I am!


Rocket Ship Applique
4. Do you have any pets?
I have two kids under 2 do they count? I actually also have 2 cats who spend most of their time sleeping in places my babies can't reach.

5. Who is your hero/heroine?
My Grandma Lilly, I get my crafty abilities from her. She is the most positive wonderful person I know, she always has something nice to say about everything.

6. Shoes, socks or bare feet?
Bare feet all the way!


Crochet Halter Top
7. What food will you absolutely not put in your mouth?
Chocolate covered cherries. Ewww they go squish.. *shiver*


A huge thank you to Jennifer for taking the time to answer the questions and for delivering such awesome answers!  




Remember to enter the contest and go buy something adorable from Lillyfuzz.  




Be happy,
Rachel
