Why?

It was the kick start for becoming creative again after a very very long period of artistic inertia for myself

Favourite shop that isn’t yours?

Oooh there really are so many but I'm going to say sprouthead - it's the one that got me interested in Etsy in the first place as I only used to buy work. I heard about this site called Etsy and decided to use it to gather materials for projects and I used them with my art and design students.

What has been the most useful lesson you’ve learnt so far that you’d like to pass on to our readers?

That it's hard work and you have to believe in yourself and be patient and be as proactive as you can, especially if you don't have a huge huge group of family and friends to get you started and placed on the Etsy map! But it's a great feeling when you sell something!

Thanks Jay - and good luck!
