CandyStickLane

2) What is your name?
Renee Eggleston

3) How did you first get started in your craft?
I started sewing when my daughter was born, 16 years ago.

4) What inspires you?
Beautiful Fabric and Art

5) What are your favorite color combination?
My favorite color hands down is Pink - and I personally love it paired with any other color :)

6) If you have children, do they craft with you? What do they do?
My daughter Krystal loves to craft, she makes lots of collages. She has her own etsy shop. TheModishGirl. My 8 year old son Roman is quite the artist also. Sterling, who is 9 is just into video games.

7) Did you craft as a child? If so, what were your favorite crafting activities?
I did craft, I loved collages as a teenager, my mother taught me to crochet and my favorite was cross stitch. In elementary school I would take clothing tags and make book marks and sell them for 25 cents and I would also take cleaned uses soda cans and glue brochures around the outside, pop the tab up and sell them as ash trays - LOL! Then in middle school i made 'airbrushed' drawings of peoples names using black construction paper and colored chalk, finished with hairspray so it would dust away.

8) What is your favorite time of day to work?
I work full time, so the only choice I have is at night, but I would prefer to work in the morning, I'm much more productive then.

9) What is your favorite item from your shop?
The little Matinee jacket made from a vintage tariana table cloth. The fabric is gorgeous.
