AND WE HAVE A THANKSGIVING WINNER!!


I want to thank all of you that came to my blog and told me about your favorite food.  I love food!  Mine happens to be the dressing (not cooked in the turkey-crispy) with gravy and cranberry sauce!

So the winner happened to be a number my kids could agree on and it was #4.  Looking down the list it was Carol from Firecrakerkids Primitive!!!

We might as well get to know Carol!  Her work is spectacular and her and her husband work together and as far as I know they still like each other!!!  That is a great thing.

 1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?

Firecrackerkid Primitives. Well, I chose this name, because I'm crafty and I was born on the 4th of July. My family always called me "firecrackerkid". My father always told folks that when I was born I came out with a bang. Put that little fact, Independence Day, my love of primitives and my country, plus I don't think we ever grow up, and you get Firecrackerkid Primitives.


2. How long have you been on Etsy?

Since March 30, 2008.

 

3. What type of items do you offer?

One-of-a-kind Woodcrafts and reproduction woodcrafts like different Early American dough bowl racks and Primitives.



4. How long have you been crafting?

Twenty-five years.



5. Who or What inspires you?

The love of all things Primitive, my e-friends, and my husband.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?

That would be our one-of-a-kind items. We like to come up with unique primitive woodcrafts that are appealing to others, and are functional in the home.



7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
