What motivated you to start your shop?
I was pregnant with my daughter in 2008 and I started to hand sew decorations for her nursery.
Then after years of dreaming of starting a business I started Brooklyn Owl in 2010 inspired by my 2 year old.

What is the story behind your shop name?
I have lived in Brooklyn since 2007 and I feel so inspired living
here. I love it so much and I knew I wanted it to be a part of my business name.  My daughter's favorite animal and one of her first words was "owl" thanks to the owls at the Prospect Park Zoo and so Brooklyn Owl just felt right.

What is your favourite creations from your shop?
My current favorite items that I really enjoy making are my unicorn horns.  They were my daughter's idea and they bring me such joy seeing her wear them and getting to send them around the world for others to enjoy as well.

What do you find most challenging about being an Etsy seller?
Etsy is open 24 hours a day so it is hard for me to step away from my
shop!  I care about my customers and I want them to have a pleasant
shopping experience and that often causes me to respond to customers and package orders hours after I am supposed to be in bed!

What's your personal philosophy behind your shop / products?
I strive to create products that are both fun and functional that make people's lives a little brighter and the world a little cuter.

What do you do when you aren't working?
It can be really hard for me to put down my sewing needles but some
of my favorite moments away from work are relaxing with my husband and daughter.  I hope to spend a lot of time at Coney Island this summer!
