Today, I want to introduce you to another Etsy seller, Megan, of Rain Drops Photography Props!

1. Tell us about yourself:
I’m crazy! I’m absolutely crazy and weird and love animals way too much! I’m a part time vegan, I say part time because I have a weakness for chocolate. I love red wine but it makes me sleepy. I love the color pink. And if I were to choose a career outside of the knitting world I would want to be a mad scientist discovering (natural) medical cures.

2. Tell us about your company, why you started your company.
I started my Rain Drops back when I was about 3 months pregnant when I booked my newborn photo shoot for my daughter, Essence, and I was researching different props. I couldn’t choose just one so I decided to put my knitting skills my grandmothers taught me to use, and sure enough friends wanted to purchase the hats I had made and it progressed from there.

3. Tell us about the products you make and your future plans for your company:
My products are made from high quality yarn, I love alpaca, Bamboo , merino and handspun yarn from etsy vendors. I have many plans for the next year but they are a secret so you will have to follow my Facebook page to get the dirt ;)


4. What is your favorite product in your shop and why?
My favorite product is my lion hat, just because it is the most fun to make.

I love my elephant hat too but I swear way to much when I’m making it but that’s the perfectionist coming out.

 

5. Tell us about how you manage your time as a work-at-home mom.

I’m terrible at managing my time, I’m always scrambling for a grandparent or the husband to watch Essence when I need to get orders out. But I do try to get up 2 hrs before Essence wakes up and I’ll put another 2 hrs of work in after she’s gone to bed.

6. What inspires you?
Makeup! Haha besides yarn my other addiction is makeup. When I see a cool eye shadow combo I’ll think” hey that would make a great looking hat”


7. When you’re not creating products for your shop, what are your hobbies?

I had many hobbies before I had a baby and business but now that are both quite time consuming. I love to cook, exercise, entertain guests, host huge bbqs and have bonfires on the beach, hike, rollerblade, play piano, and color in Disney coloring books (very therapeutic)
