In Full Bloom Link Party #4 - Featuring CCY Designs

Today on In Full Bloom I am featuring CCY Designs! Cassie from CCY Designs is such a sweetie! She is so uplifting and inspirational- she puts love into each and every item she creates for her handmade shop.


Who or what inspired you to start your Indie Biz?
What encouraged me to start it was playing around with different items and realizing I loved making handmade items in general and we needed the extra income. So, I thought why not?

What is the hardest challenge you have as an Indie Biz owner?
The time it takes has got to be the hardest. Between making the items, taking pictures, getting the item listed, descriptions and then promoting it all. It takes a lot of time!

What is some helpful advice you would give other Indie Biz owners?
The biggest advice I can give is create things you love! Don't just create things you think will say {I made that mistake in the begining}. Because if you don't love what you make, people will see that. Also, know that your shop doesn't have to have a theme, that was a hurdle I had to overcome and when I did - my creativity ran wild!

What is the ultimate goal you have for your Indie Biz?
Right now -it is just a creative outlet for me and way to help bring in a little extra money. I would love to see it soar and succeed beyond what I dreamed but for now I'm content with the small goal I have. :)

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. If you have a blog and want to help spread the word, feel free to add this button to your sidebar:
