Feature - MaryMarsh

Our daughter will be 5 in June and starting school next year.

With her crazy hair we decided to get some clips and headbands to make life easier in the morning.

She now has several great sets of clips thanks to MaryMarsh at http://MaryMarsh.etsy.com.

MaryMarsh was kind enough to answer a few questions for us as well.

1. How would you describe your shop/business?

I would describe my shop as a place where fun meets functional. Not only do my products serve a purpose, but they are unique and fun as well.

2. How long have you been making hair accessories/crafting for?

I have been making hair accessories for about a year and a half now. I have been crafting practically my whole life though.

3. How did get into this line of work/hobby?

I saw some fabric button ponytail holders for sale and thought to myself how cute they were. Being the "do it yourself" kind of person I am, I figured out how to make them. Before long and with an accumulation of fabric, I decided to try to sell them. And that's when I found Etsy!

4. Where does your inspiration come from? What sorts of things inspire your work?

My inspiration comes from everywhere. Most of my ideas come from lots of careful brainstorming. It seems as though the "wheels" are always turning in my head trying to think of what new product I can come up with next. I just try to come up with products that are fun as well as useful.

My latest creation... one of a kind button key chains.

5. What is your favorite piece? Why?

Hmmmm... that's a hard one. I guess I'd have to say I'm really proud of this... http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10260568 the two-sided keychain in "My Sweet Little Girls."

It took me a long time to perfect this keychain, and I love how it shows the front and the back profiles of the Matryoschka dolls.

6. What do you like to do when you are not crafting?

Besides thinking of new projects to work on, I am usually out shopping or on walks with my husband and our dog. I also enjoy spending time with my close friends.

7. Are your items available anywhere other than etsy?

Currently, the only place they are available is through Etsy.
