Today's artist spotlight is blogger and creative shop owner Holly Devlin of Poway, California, and her shop Mommy Holly!
How long have you been making all your cute creations? How did you get started?
I opened my Etsy shop close to two years ago, but at first it was more of a hobby for me. I have always loved to work with paper crafts, and wanted to share my creations with others. Then around a year ago, I decided to treat it more like a job, and it has consistently grown since then!! Now while I am waiting to begin nursing school, this is a fantastic opportunity to create things I love, and make a small business out of it in the process. :)
What is your favorite thing in your shop?
I adore the vintage dictionary bird cutouts... I am a sucker for anything having to do with birds, so I love to use these in any way possible. I also love to see what people use them for as well- I've had customers buy thousands of birds to decorate their entire wedding with and I am proud to be a part of something like that. :)
What are your other hobbies?
I spend a lot of time being creative in any way possible, and am perfectly content being in my craft room at all times of the day!! But I also love to bake (I love anything sweet!), read (I spend an inordinate amount of time in the library!), and spend time with my darling six-year old son. :)
What do you listen to while creating?
I have a playlist on my blog that is always changing, but that contains my favorite songs at any given moment. Right now I can't stop listening to Adam Lambert (love him!), and my all-time favorite singer is Ryan Star. (Even though not a huge amount of people even recognize his name haha! Google him now- you won't be sorry.)
Because I am a food lover....what is your favorite thing to eat?
I am always in the mood for pizza. Delicious, cheesy pizza. I could eat it every day. Oh yes, and cookies. :)
