Elizabeth from Sew Chatty is an amazing lady! I personally love her items and own one of her custom clutches. Last weekend I had the chance to meet her in person and I don’t have enough nice things to say about her; super nice, cute, and genuine. Elizabeth makes unique and stylish handmade items. All of her items are of wonderful quality and the fabrics and patterns she uses make each piece one-of-a-kind.
Who or what encouraged you to start your Indie Biz?
I made handmade gifts for Christmas a few years back and lots of friends and family encouraged me to open shop so here I am! So blessed to do what I love!
What is the hardest challenge you have as an Indie Biz owner?
I think the hardest part about owning an Indie Biz is remembering my priorities when it comes to balancing my business and family. I love what I do so much that I would rather sew than do dishes and laundry!
What is some helpful advice you would offer other Indie Biz owners?
Stay true to you and your style. Do your best to be unique and stand out. You're an indie biz owner, so you ARE creative. Let that shine through in your products, your blog writing...everything!
What is the ultimate goal you have for your Indie Biz?
To contribute to my family's income doing something I love to do! Best job in the world!
in full bloom: helping grow your indie biz!
Time to link up YOUR Indie Biz!!
Don't forget to head over to Neathering Our Fest to see her shop feature too!
Every other week Skye and I will both be featuring a hand-picked handmade shop on our blog and hosting a linky party for you to link up your shop! We want to help spread the word about what you are doing and help grow your sparkly slice of the internet. Since we are co-hosting this shindig - if you link your shop up here it will also show up on Skye's blog post. Here are a couple of guidelines for linking up:
- Link up shops/shop platforms only. Please do not link to a specific item, a blog post about your shop, your blog (unless your shop platform is hosted on your blog) or anything other than your beautiful shop.
- After you link up, visit two or three of the other shops that have linked up and tweet, pin, or facebook about your favorite item from their shops!
- If you have a blog and want to help spread the word, feel free to add this button to your sidebar:
