Christmas Sale Interview: kreative studios

Abby MightComment

I've been working with this next shop for a few years now. Not only does she run her own shop, she's my distributor for my other shop, Nerdisan Boxes, since I'm living in England for a couple more years. 

You can use the code XMAS16 at her shop or any of the other 30+ shops participating in this year's Multi-Vendor Geeky Christmas Sale!

Let's start with the basics. What's your name?
Kristen Start

How did you come up with your shop name?
Asked for help from friends! Needed something that wasn't specific to what I started with (knit/crochet hats) because I knew I'd want to expand. One of my friends suggested "Creative Studios," which seemed like a photography studio to me, so I changed to a k (coincidentally, my business has the same initials as I do) and made everything lowercase to keep my brain from frying with "kreative" misspelled - for some reason, with it lowercase, it doesn't bother me.

You're at Starbucks. What do you order?
Butterbeer Frappu...however you spell it! Or a secret menu one that looks simple and delicious.

Do you have your shop full time? Or do you do something else too?
Shop part time, part time day care assistant/office help for my local Parks & Recreation.

What's your go-to snack to munch on while you work?
Whatever I have on hand... which is generally cookies.

What's your favorite way to relax and unwind after a stressful day of work?
Netflix & crochet.

What's your favorite geeky product to make and why?
Oh gosh, you had to ask?! Right now either rings or crocheted toys... because I love them.
