My dear friend Sandi Meyers of http://www.sandists.com/ is one of the sweetest ladies you will meet through twitter and etsy. This past week she was shop of the week for the Etsy twitter team. I asked her to answer some random questions about herself and her shop. Here are her answers..please enjoy!
- who or what inspires you to do your arts and crafts? to use the colors you use? -
I like to wear shawls and hats and scarves - and pick colors that I know will look good on me - and hope that the same colors will appeal to others. The members of the Etsy Twitter team are an inspiration to me with your talent and pattern ideas!
-besides the farm stand in the summer and your etsy store what else occupies your time? - haha - sorry didn't mean to laugh - but my website Sandi's T's(http://www.sandists.com/) occupies a large part of my time - because I'm always trying to make it look better, work better, add new products, etc....
(i love your sense of humor Sandi--you keep me smiling all day long! ;)
what's your favorite food? -
since I don't do a lot of cooking other than basics - my DH likes meat and potatoes and in summer sweet corn, I really don't have one favorite food - however, if I had to choose a nationality of food, I would say Mexican - let me go to a Mexican restaurant and I'm in heaven. But none of the really spicy type please!
what's your favorite book? -
Again, there is not one favorite book - but I have several favorite authors - one is Jean Auel - waiting for her next book to come out, Diana Gabaldon - with her series Outlander - waiting for the latest book in the series, of course Steven King...
1-3 things that you would like the world to know about you on my blog that isn't listed above.
I was a navy wife and traveled a lot, but I really rather stay at home. I've been here in Virginia since 1976 - came here from Portugal (stationed there) - so it seems kind of strange that I've been here that long. But when I think about relocating (my DH and I are retired and in our 60's) it seems daunting. Of course a change of scenery might not be all that bad! I'd just need to make sure to find a house with a work room large enough to hold all my fabric and yarn!
on a side note-- Sandi has two shops which carry an amazing collection of both her work and supplies. She is a very approachable seller on etsy/twitter and has a heart of gold. If you don't see what you like in her shop please don't hesitate to ask her.
