Tell us a little about your shop:
Cupcake Dream specializes in decoration and digital designs for children. Add a personal touch to a special event or nursery with these vibrant, whimsical creations.

What brought you to etsy?
I found Etsy when I was planning my wedding years ago. After becoming pregnant, experimenting with different crafts for my daughter's nursery was a regular thing. When a friend saw some of the things created for the room, she suggested I start up a store of my own. Since an actual store front was not possible at the moment, I decided to give Etsy a try.

How long have you been crafting?
Even as a little girl, I loved making things. In school, I was always labeled, “creative” but had a really hard time sticking to one thing. Since then, I have done my best to expand my creative hobbies. Each new chapter of my life has given me more opportunities to experience something new. I've tried everything from scrap booking to sewing, graphics to wood work, and painting to jewelry making .

What is your favorite item in your shop right now?
It would have to be a tie between the polka dot cupcake invitation or the owl nursery closet dividers.

What is your "day job?"
My day job is taking care of my beautiful, amazing daughter. I really love being a stay at home mother and sometimes I can get a little crafting in during nap time.

Where do you find inspiration?
My kids give me all the inspiration. Being around such colorful personalities allows me to create playful products for the store. Sometimes I pull colors from the clothes they wear, or design based on a favorite toy or character they love.

What is one thing you wish you could do better?
I would love to be able to draw better. Give me a computer and I can create just about any design. Give me a pencil and paper and you'll get an amazing stick man.

What is one crafting tool you couldn't live without?
My designs would be nothing without a computer.

What is your favorite book/movie/song?
Book: Not a big fan of books. Movie: Dirty Dancing Song: I Saw God Today by George Strait

Where else can we find you?
