Another Newbie! :o) Susan!

1. Shop Name: Joybucket

2. First Name: Susan

3. How long have you been a member of the Etsy Community?

Well, gosh, I've been selling since 2007 but I am only now joining my first team. I suppose I'm a bit shy.

4. Married/Single? Spouse's name

Married, my husband's name is Henry.

5. Birthday Month/Day... we don't need the year.

June 22nd

6. What state/country do you live in?

Ohio, USA

7. Do you have any children? Will you tell us their lst name and age?

We have one child, Lucy, who will turn 7 next month.

8. How long have you been crafting what you sell on Etsy?

I started making dolls in the summer of 2005 for my daughter who was 2 at the time. My work has evolved and now I make OOAK sculpted art dolls as well as other items which I create using my own fabric designs through

9. When you have free time, what do you like to do?

I enjoy working with my dog. We recently got him through a Doberman Rescue group. He's wicked smart and a total clown.

10. Are you on a ministry team at your church or do you have your own ministry?

What type is it?

My husband and I taught 1st grade Sunday School for a number of years before we became parents. We're not involved in anything right now.

11. How long have you been a Christian?
I was raised Lutheran and had a solid Biblical upbringing. I would say though, that in 1996 I made a very definite decision for Jesus to be Lord over my life.

12. What is your favorite item in your shop right now?

My Joybucket Girl pins which I make from my Kokeshi Doll fabric.

13. What would you like to do that you have not done yet?

Have my entire house, from basement to bedrooms, cleaned and all our meals planned for a week. I heard rumor that the space/time continuum actually implodes if this feat is accomplished so really I'm saving the world by not attempting it.

14. If we were having a team party, what would you be bringing?

Napkins. I know my limitations.

15. Do you prefer salty or sweet snacks?

Both together please.

16. What type of pets do you have, if any?

One young doberman I refer to as Jeff Vader although that's not his name. Who would name their dog that?

17. Which of these three would you prefer to do? Hang glide, bungee jump, or sit by the pool and be waited on hand and foot?

Sit by the pool. I'm too big of a chicken to do the other two.

18. If you were on a rocket to the moon, what is one thing you would want to have?

A camera

19. Does your vehicle have a name, if so, what is it?

It hasn't occurred to me to name it.

20. Is there anything other type of items that you would like to add to your current shop?

Yep, I'll be making more OOAK dolls. I have some plans to make items from my fabric designs and perhaps kits so people can make their own dolls & crafts
