Featured Friday - Bundle Of Joy Shop

I would like you to meet Cheryl Porath and her Etsy shop:  BundleOfJoyShop.

If you love handmade Baby items, Then you will love the items at BundleOfJoyShop.

Let's get to know BundleOfJoyShop and Cheryl :

What would you like us to know about you?
I would first like to thank Teresa for giving not only me, but other Etsy shop owners this great opportunity.

My husband of over 25 years and I are new empty nesters. With our 3 wonderful children making lives of their own, we decided instead of being sad about the kids not being at home, we would start doing things on our bucket lists. One thing my husband did was join a band. He is the guitar player. I decided to take my love of crocheting and open my Etsy shop. I enjoy a variety of hobbies, which include gardening, needlework and sewing. My favorite hobby is crocheting. From the moment my Mom taught me how to crochet, I have always been crocheting something.
What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?
My oldest daughter has a shop on Etsy. When she told me how much fun she was having selling her items and being a part of the Etsy family, that is when I decided to sell crocheted items on Etsy.

How did you come up with your shop name?
Once I decided to focus on baby items, I wanted a baby related name. I thought about a name for weeks. For me a baby is love and happiness, hence the name " Bundle Of Joy Shop".

How would you describe your shop?
My shop sells baby items that I hand crocheted. Each crocheted item is made from premium yarn. Some of the items are: afghans, booties, diaper covers, sandals, hats and bottle covers. On a regular basis I am adding new items.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by my family, especially my Mom. She shows me by example how having many passions in life is a wonderful way to live.

Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?
That reminds me of ornaments I gave to each of my children one Christmas. Each ornament said, "You are Mom's favorite". Some days my favorite item to make is a hat and then other days I enjoy making booties.

If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?
My entire craft room would be my first choice. That is one upside to being an empty nester, turning an empty bedroom into a craft room. The 3 items I would choose are: yarn, crochet hook and a needle.

Where else can we find you?
As of now the only place to find me is on Etsy. Being new to owning a business, I am looking into more options. 

Is there anything else you would like to share?
Never give up on your dreams. I have always wanted to sell my hand crafted items and having a shop on Etsy has given me that opportunity. Owning Bundle Of Joy Shop is hard work that is a great deal of fun!

Thanks so much Cheryl .  It has been great getting to know you and discovering your shop and your lovely items.

Now please show Cheryl some support and let us know which of her pieces are your favorite from her shop! Oh...and go ahead and heart a few of her items along with her shop :)

Have a great weekend!
