craftumi seller quick five :: lolashoppe
Tell us a bit about yourself
I'm Carli, and I'm a craftaholic! I love all things pretty. I am a bit of a hoarder, which is how I aquired many of the things that I sell on Craftumi. I just can't help myself when it comes to lovely fabrics especially. I recently sold a business, and am now studying Interior Design from home and looking after my two babies: Nicholas who is 4, and Ivie who's 2. My husband, kids and I moved to Melbourne almost two years ago and are never leaving - we love it here!
How did you find about carftumi?
I found out about Craftumi through the Madeit newsletter. It took me a while to get organised enough to set up lolashoppe (I forgot to mention that I'm a huge procrastinator!), but I have, and I love it!
What do you sell on craftumi?
I sell beautiful fabrics, ribbons and general supplies like double sided tape, hair clips and pretty papers. I have lots of other bits and pieces - beads, jewellery findings, and more ribbons and fabrics that I am yet to find time to list!
What is your favourite craft activity?
I love crafting in general! My favourites are probably sewing, making jewellery and cardmaking.
What would be your perfect day?
It would start with a big sleep-in! Then the whole family would have a day out - maybe go to a market, or the museum, or the footy (go Saints!). I love to eat out, so we'd go for dinner somewhere nice. Obviously the kids will have behaved perfectly all day and will go off to sleep like angels so that hubby and I could relax with a nice bottle of wine.
