Well, there are so many talented Purring Cats around. Me, CATherine, kaliCAT, and now even a lazyCAT, or shall I say several Lazy Cats?
Lazycat is the name of a little business run by Allison, Stasia, & Kelly
- How did you get started?
We love to crochet! We made so many gifts for friends and family, we decide to try to sell them somewhere, and Etsy seemed like a great place!
- Where are you from?
We are all from the Great Lakes area, and met in Ann Arbor, MI. Kelly lives in Philadelphia now, but is moving back to A2 very soon!
- Are your creations limited editions or unique?
There is the occasional limited edition jewelry piece--if one item is really beloved by a customer, we will try to make something similar. However, most items are unique.
- How long have you been doing it?
We joined Etsy in 1/07--we had done 1 craft show before then, so about 1 year.
- Are you a professional artist or is this a hobby?
We really want to make this a viable side-business, but we all have full-time jobs (doctors and researchers) so we give it as much time as we can. It helps to have 3 people!
- What is your favorite piece and why?
Pasadena Necklace and Earrings Set
It was a very technically challenging piece, and we are so happy with how well it came out!
- How do you promote your work?
On Etsy (treasuries and forums), on our blog, via friends and family, and through our consignment contract with a store in town. We are hoping to expand our consignment/wholesale projects.
- Where are you showing your work?
Etsy, Suwanee Springs (Ann Arbor, MI)
- What is your favorite material?
- What advice you wish someone had told you when you started?
This is hard, but believe in yourself and your designs!
- If you were an object, what would that be?
Does a cat count? :)
