Star Sponsor and Giveaway: Lil' Mustard Seed *CLOSED*

Friends! It's Star Sponsor day here at Yes Teacher Crafts and I'm so excited to be kicking things off with Megan from Lil' Mustard Seed!


Isn't she adorable? She also sells lovely accessories like these sweet sunshine bobby pins:


Here's the scoop on Megan:


Tell us about your shop: 
My shop is a fun way for me to express my creativity and try new things. I love DIYing and creating! I also love buttons and fabric, so why not combine them both, right?!

What is the easiest thing about running your shop? What's the hardest? 
Great question! Easiest? I have a platform to load my ideas and pictures for the world to see. Hardest? I'm new to Etsy. I just started in April so I'm still learning the ropes and trying to get my name out there.

What is one thing you wished you had known before you started your shop? 
You can't just expect success over night. For some reason I kept thinking, "ok, I've started, let the sales begin!" and it's not that simple. It takes work. :)

If you were a piece of candy, what would you be and why? 
Skittles. I'm colorful and bright!
