I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine, Miss Mindy of Marigold Road! She runs a blog and shop and was recently a sponsor of Pie N' the Sky. Lets say hi!
Tell us a little bit about yourself...
What made you decide to open your blog/shop?
I opened my Etsy once I realized my collection of mid-century housewares was too hefty for the confines of our home. Plus it gave me another excuse to keep estate saleing. I've added handmade goodies to the shop...creating into the late into the night is just a blast, and gives me something else to be proud of besides wife/mom.
What are your favorite things to blog about? Any favorite posts?
My favorite things to blog about are other blogs/shops. I'll do anything to help a new shop/blog that is trying to get her name out. I know what that's like. I'm still in that phase. Also, I have a section titled "Perspective" that has deeper stuff in it... I really loved this post I wrote about mommyhood.
What are some of your favorite things to make for your shop?
Yarn wreaths and hippie headbands!
What do you like to do when you're not crafting or blogging?
Run around the track at the gym, eat dessert, bake with the kiddos, watch MadMen with Shawn
What are some of your favorite blog reads?
Casey Leigh, A Beautiful Mess, Under the Sycamore, Whatever
If you had three wishes, what would they be?
For my children's college education to be paid for, for all to have a relationship with God, to be thin
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My children, nature, Pinterest, my husband, other blogs
