Friday Feature- EkayG {Sale}

Today's feature is the very talented Erin from EkayG! As a mom of 4 boys, I am in love with her car rugs! They are so unique and completely awesome. I hope you enjoy getting to know Erin and enjoy the coupon code she generously offered.

1. Tell us a bit about yourself and your background.
I'm Erin, the crocheting nerd behind EkayG, but I wasn't always the hookin' fool I am today. :) I was a tom boy to the fullest extent, and played basketball competitively from age 5 through college. I played college basketball at The University at Buffalo a little over 10 years ago, but suffered an injury which suddenly ended my career. To fill a void and keep my hands and mind busy, I took to crochet, a craft I had only seen previously in my grandmother's hands. It was a strange and unlikely transition, but I fell in love! I am now married, and have three young children. I'm embarking on the journey of homeschooling, and as a cooking, cleaning, crocheting, stay at home mom, my tom boy days are well behind me, though I can still be found, quite often, in my UB sweats. ;-)  

2. Tell us about your business. What do you make? What are you all about?
I make a variety of things from children's toys and accessories to adult fashions and accessories. I take on a lot of unique custom orders from scarves, cowls, and hats, to children's toys and baby blankets. I mostly crochet, but like to incorporate some sewing as well. My biggest sellers, and the most fun products to make, are almost always the children's toys!

3. When and why did you start your business?
When I began making things for my family, I never even thought of starting a business. But about 5 years ago, I began sharing photos on Facebook of my family with the items I made them for birthdays or Christmas. I discovered a demand for handmade, and unique gifts. At first, I was only selling to family and friends, and I was just happy to help support my hobby, but it steadily grew, and friends encouraged me to start a business page on Facebook. Then I opened my Etsy shop in 2010.

4. What inspires you?
I am inspired by many different things, but mostly my own children! Creating imaginative toys for them to enjoy for years to come brings me great joy.
