Tribute Tuesday with This -n- That Boutique

It's Tribute Tuesday...so let's welcome Etsy shop This -n- That Boutique

What is the first creative memory you have?

Sitting at my grandmothers on a hot summer day with yarn in hand and her teaching me how to make my first blanket. I think I was about 10 years old and loved learning from her. It was our special thing together.

What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?

I was searching for patterns and found out that you could sell on Etsy and it was more craft based then eBay where I had been selling.

How did you come up with your shop name?

I always had a little of This and That in my store on eBay and it just sort of stuck. I have thought about changing it but every time I do I add new items that make it this and that again.

Describe what creations you have in your shop

I focus on hand made crochet hats, booties, and photo props for babies. I also love to do purses and older children's items. I am dabbling in headbands now too.

Twin Set, Princess and the Frog

What insprires you?

My children inspire me every day. I want to be able to stay home and watch
them grow up and spend as much time with them as I can. With 7 kids one income is just not enough. My passion for crochet and my kids is my driving force to turn this hobby into a business to keep my kids home with me and out of daycare.

What do you listen to or watch while creating?

Usually I have Disney on in the background with kids thats the only tv I get to watch.

Please share a favorite recipe

I love this dip for fruit that I had at my baby shower for my first son 13 years ago. I have always loved it. Not to healthy but hey it sure does taste good. You mix a jar of marshmallow creme with a package of cream cheese and there you go a nice sweet dip for any fruit of your choice.

Where else can we find you?
