Who's New Tuesday: Heidi-and-Seek Boutique

Hello everyone, Heidi here from Heidi-and-Seek Boutique. We're starting a new segment on the blog where we get to be introduced to someone new! To start this segment off, I will introduce myself and continuing on, we will post intros of new members on Tuesdays as we have them :)

Where are you from?
I'm from Winkler, MB.

What is your Etsy Shop Called?
Heidi-and-Seek Boutique

When did you start your Etsy Shop?
My business, Heidi-and-Seek Boutique was started in May of 2009 when I received my first ever sewing machine for Christmas! I started up-cycling things like pillowcases into skirts and purses, using place mats to make clutch purses, things like that.

Why did you decide to open an Etsy shop
I decided to open an Etsy shop because I was making things people liked and it seemed like a really neat community! At the time I was (and still am) reading A Beautiful Mess, and I believe that is where I first learned about Etsy from her creative paintings and kits. Heidi-and-Seek Boutique sells unique, up-cycled clothing and accessories for women.

What is your favorite item to make?
My favorite item to make right now is probably my Heidi Hoods. I love the idea I came up with and am really enjoying thinking up new things to do with them!

What are your long-term Etsy goals?
I'm hoping to start taking some Apparel Design courses in the near future, and ultimately would like to be able to 'quit my day job' and do this full-time!

So there's me in a nutshell!  If you'd like to follow my handmade journey, you can get updates on my Facebook Page and feel free to check out my blog for all things Heidi-and-Seek Boutique :)
Thanks for reading!

PS. If you're new since last July, be expecting a message from me at some point ;)
