The illustration for this interview is a one of a kind gift tag inspired by this wonderful crochet brooch called Windflower and it has a seashell button.
The color combo is amazing - reminds me of the sea and it relaxes your spirit!

Please introduce yourself....
Hello, my name is Leah and I live in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand.
I’m and artist and crafter. I like to try new things and to experiment with my creations; however, crocheting is my relaxing therapy, and I always come back to it. I love colours and want to bring colour to everybody’s wardrobe.
Why did you open an Etsy shop?
I love Etsy. It’s a great international community to belong to. I think Etsy can be a good platform to sell online and meet other creative people. Its part of the green revolution and slow living in which I believe is a better future for us and the planet.
How do you promote your designs?
I don’t promote my shop as much as I really want and need. I am active in different ways on Etsy treasuries, teams and circles. I am planning to go to the local markets and inspire offline buyers to become online ones.
Where do you see your brand in 5 years?
At the moment, I’m a full time student doing 3 casual part time jobs; so, in 5 years’ time I plan to be –self-employed.
I want to develop my designs to be more complex and incorporate other recycled materials.
I am also working on creating a new and exciting method of painting with water – watch this space...
So if you love crochet and accessories combine this love and check out a wonderful fresh shop!
