Giveaway Ended - click here for more chances to win!

Do love Handmade Jewelry and Great Accessories? Meet Melissa of The Tiny Bee. She designs, crafts, and sells wonderful polymer clay push pins, stud earrings, coin purses, fabric button magnets, and key chains.

WIN these lovely handmade chrysanthemum earrings below!

I had a few questions for Melissa about her shop. Here is what she said:

What is your favorite item from your store to make and why?
My favorite things to make are the things I'm making for the first time. I love learning so its fun for me to try a new technique, pattern, or design.

Where or what do you draw your inspiration from?
Craft stores are my happy place. I draw a lot of inspiration just from looking at materials and day dreaming about what they could become. I taught myself to sew and work with clay using YouTube
videos and Pinterest tutorials. I apply the lessons from my internet teachers to materials I like and make things that I want to use. That's my basic formula.

Where do you see The Tiny Bee 5 years from now?
I put no limit on where this adventure could take me. I'd love to support myself on The Tiny Bee full time which is my current goal. In 5 years I hope to be saying, "Wow, this is more than I could have ever dreamed of".

How do you stay motivated?
Most importantly, I am very passionate about my business. I have a strong desire to succeed and create. Secondly, I am motivated by my failures. When something isn't working I learn from my mistakes, make the necessary changes, and wait for the results. I find it deeply satisfying and motivating to see improvements when I put in the hard work of editing myself.
