Well for me since I was a teen. My mom has been desginign and sewing sicne she was a teen. We love doing this together and really have a lot of fun with it.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU SOLD ON EBAY:

I think its been about 4 years now.

WHERE DOES YOUR INSPIRATION COME FROM?

For me its fabric, I see something and I look at it and get an idea. My mom has all these ideas bubbling in her head nad she is an artist and sketches them out, but we're so busy doing the Deco all the time she hasn't had much of a chance to really do what she wants. Which I think will change this summer, she plans on doing some fall sets with her designs. And she would say Sydnee is her inspiration. Me its fabric.

IF THERE WAS ONE THING YOU WOULD LOVE TO LEARN WHAT IS IT?

HAHA I would love to learn to sew.

WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH US?

I am recently in a new group. Cintre, which means hanger in Italian. We are having our debut next Tuesday. We are a group made up of seasoned designers. A few of them were in the very first ebay design group way back when. So far its been really fun and these gals keep me laughing every day. I'm also in the Dapper Quackers with some really fun girls (Boutique DQ) and have made some good friends in there. I just love being able to do this with my mom and the modeling and picture taking is really my passion now with Sydnee. I love having a girl and being able to dress her in Boutique Custom!
