In The Box

I would like to introduce Molly from Petables:

What pets do you have and their names?
Phthalo Blue (Thay Thay) The American Fuzzy Lop (Named after the tube of paint color I accidentally splattered on him when he was a baby.)

Parchofi (Parchie) The Quaker Parrot (He is named after the Italian word for an instrument used in glass blowing. I did my college internship with a glass blower. That is how I know.)

Draco (The Drake) The Domestic Long Haired cat (Kinda obvious he is named after the Harry Potter character) Isosceles (Icy) The Australian Shepherd/ Border Collie (He is named after the triangle, my hubby said he liked the name cause he is a physics major and I liked it cause I like strange names if you couldn't tell)

What is the name/location of your Etsy shop?

How did you happen to start selling on Etsy?

I was looking for supplies and found it.

What's your favorite item in your store?

I can't decide between my fuzzy cat toys and dog poop bag holders.

What's your most popular line of products?

I really don't have one that is more popular then another. They all sell the same.

Where do you get your inspiration/ideas for new items?

Usually my crazyness of staying up until 3 am helps inspire me for fun new things. My brain never shuts off.
What do you want us to know about you as a person?

Animals are my passion. I have loved animals since the day I was born and have always known that I need to be surrounded by animals and have them be who I work for.

What do you want us to know about you as a crafter/artist?

I went to Northwest College of Art in Poulsbo, Washington from 1998 - 2001. I double majored in Fine arts and design and got my BFA. I have always been creative and artistic, I feel art and animals are the most calming and relaxing kind of therapy.

What do you want us to know about your shop?

I like to keep my shop packed with all kinds of fun and unique things for pets. I am always expanding cause if I only made a few different things I would get bored of making the same thing all the time.

What would you be doing/making/selling if you weren't doing what you're doing now?

I would be in an insane asylum cause no other job would keep me sane. This is the best job I have ever had. I get to make things for animals, talk to people who love animals and be creative. I get all the things I love best.

Where else can we follow you (twitter, flickr, facebook, blog, other online stores, etc.)?

What do you have in the Pet Sampler boxes?

I usually have a fun tasty little bag of treats for dogs.

Molly, I LOVE that cat toy, how cute and creative. You know I love your dog treats.
Very intersting interview. I especially like when you said you work for the pets.
Great job Shari and Molly.
