Star Sponsor and Giveaway: Red Rabbit Studios **CLOSED**

Today, it's my pleasure to introduce to you Cathy from Red Rabbit Studios!


Cathy is a talented artist who sells beautiful handmade jewelry. Take a look at some of the lovely accessories in her shop:



1. Where do you get your inspiration to create?

I get my inspiration to create mostly from nature and taking in all that surrounds me. I am a very artistic and creative person and have always loved playing with several different medias of art. I feel in love with jewelry making while on a trip to Hawaii when I sat at a Farmer's Market and watched a young lady make jewelry. She showed me a few things and it took off from there.


2. What are some tips you can share for people who might be thinking of opening their own shop?

Some tips I might give some folks that might be thinking of opening their own shops would be to just go for it but start small. You don't have to purchase a bunch of materials and supplies to get started. Find something you really enjoy doing and make a couple of items. Wear some around or give away as gifts and see if anyone compliments them. {I have sold items right off of me before ;) } Don't get pressured into having everything perfect before you start, just have fun!


3. What's your favorite thing about owning your own business?

My favorite thing about owning my own business is that I can focus on my babies and create when time allows. My boys are the most important thing in my world and they come first, well after my faith and my hubby but you know what I mean. ;)

4. What's your favorite beverage?
My favorite beverage is coffee! First thing I think about when I wake up, "where is my coffee?!"


5. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?

Probably to be able to do things super fast! I love that show "No Ordinary Family" the Mom does things super fast and I think it is so cool! I could clean my house in around 5 seconds and laundry in about 2 seconds, more time to play and create! ;)
