Mid-Week Feature #6

Welcome to another Mid Week Feature! This week's artist is Cailey, from Midvale, Utah. She is the creator over at 3Sister. She is new to etsy (joined up in the end of January!) and has lots to offer to Etsy! Her work is super sweet, and I am especially taken by this beautiful crocheted headband!

Here's what she had to say for us this week:


What is your craft?
My sisters and I do handmade hair accessories as well as children's tutus. We hope to branch out to more items once our shop is booming!

How long have you been crafting?
My mother has always been a huge crafter. In the house that I grew up we had a barn in the backyard. Did we have horses and hay? Oh no. We had craft supplies galore! My sisters and I had a lot of fun going out there and coming up with ideas with my crafty mother.

Other than crafting, what else do you do?
I have a full time job as a secretary for an accounting office so from January to April 15th, it keeps me really busy. Other than that, I spend time with my husband and family doing all sorts of things.

What is your favorite part of what you create?
The endless possibilities! Seriously, give me some fabric, buttons, and a glue gun and I've got ideas on end!

If you could change anything about your craft, would you?
The good thing about crafting with my sisters is that we help each other out. So if I try something crazy and they don't like it, then it let's me get a second look at what I'm doing. Yes, it's a good thing, for the most part...

What is one thing most people wouldn't know about you?
That I was the first one to wear leggings @ my high school. And the first one to wear capris in elementary school. Kids were like "your shorts are too long, and your pants are too short." I didn't care, I was willing to take risks.

Describe yourself in 5 words.
Shy, Nice, Witty, Totally Awesome? (haha!)

What inspires you?
I have to admit, I'm a pretty trendy girl so I get inspired by the sort of things that are hot right now, but I also try to add my own lil spin on them. Looking thru countless magazines really gets my creative juices flowing.

Any words of advice for your fellow crafters or those who may be starting up?
Be patient! If you craft it, they will come...
