1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop
Kreativ Case was "kreated" - get it? :) - when I tried to come up with a name that best highlighted the unique and personalized items that I make. I wanted to put a little spin on it and make it a bit querky.
2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
My shop combines two natural wants from a smartphone user when shopping for a case - durability and style. I feel like it's important to protect your phone because it's one of your biggest investment, but at the same time, you should have a pretty case! Some cases out there are cute, but don't have the type of protection my cases offer.
3. What is your favorite item at the store and why?
My favorite case just happens to be one of my best sellers too: www.etsy.com/listing/160063920/iphone-case-iphone-4-case-engaged-iphone
This is one of the cases from my wedding collection and celebrates an exciting time in one's life - getting engaged!
4. What inspires create your products?
My designs are very precious to me. I spend a lot of time creating each one and being in tune with design all my life, I get very inspired by things I see around me and different things I come across on the web. The fact that I get to make each case personalized to my customer makes the experience all the more rewarding.
5. Where can we find you?
6. Do you have any coupons or discounts for us?

7. What advice can you give for other sellers out there for their shop?
I've only had my shop opened for about 2 months, but one of the most important lessons that I've learned is that you need to be persistant and do something every day. Also, it's fun and great to post new listings and participate on teams/forum (trust me, I've learned a lot from those!), but you also need to venture outside of Etsy and advertise outside too! That's the only way to get good exposure to your brand.
Now some fun facts about you
8. What is your Favorite Food?
Great question! I'm a major foodie. I'd have to say my favorite would have to be SUSHI by far. Nothing like dynamite rolls. :) I also love(!) red velvet cupcakes. Put them together and you've got my perfect meal.
9. Describe us one positive event in your life in your life that you felt was a miracle to you or that you knew the Universe was there watching over you.
I've actually had a few moments like this in my life, but one of the biggest positive event was when I met my life partner. I call it that because it was pretty much fate that we met. We met on an online dating site and I had messaged him a few hours before he actually went on the site to take down his profile because he had given up. I feel that it's something special because he's been the biggest positive influence in my life since and is even the one who encouraged me to open my shop!
10. What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
I've only been to one place which is Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, but I loved it! I'd go back again and again. The weather is amazing compared to the great white North where I live. The people at the resort were very friendly and made sure our stay was memorable.
11. Anything else you like to share about you?
I'd just like to conclude by saying that I've experienced a few roadblocks in my life, but having my Etsy site allows me to be passionate about something and I would hope that someday my small business grows into something I can focus on full time. Eventually I'd love to be able to work from home to take care of my family and raise my children. Thank you for the opportunity to share a little piece of my case world with you!
You will be able to win the following cellphone case below. It's one of her best sellers too... be sure to enter to win! This giveaway is open world wide! Good Luck!
