What motivated you to start your shop?
Good question! I have been knitting and crocheting since I was 11 years old and learned to do so in Canada during my childhood. After a few quick lessons from my Aunt, I was knitting jackets/hats for babies and bugging my mum to buy me yarn and pattern books instead of the usual things an 11 year old girl would want. 
I am passionate about crochet and knitting (its my creative outlet). Even though my boys aren't babies anymore I still love to make things. Etsy provided the perfect platform to sell my creations and hopefully give them the opportunity to make their way to a new home where they will be loved.
What is the story behind your shop name?
Simple - I love pink and was looking for a name that could be associated with babywear. Birds came to mind and Little Pink Canary was born!    

What is your favourite creations from your shop?

I love making my cotton bunnies. I love seeing the beauty in simple things and feel that my bunnies fit into that category.
There are so many commercial products out there to buy for children that are mass produced. I feel that my handmade cotton bunnies are so simple and cuddly (just like a hug from a mum or dad) and really just the perfect gift for any child.
Blankets also have a special place in my heart. I love working with gorgeous Australian wools and cottons, dreaming up the perfect colour palette and slowly watching my blankets evolve into heirloom pieces. 

What surprised you most about having your own craft / online shop?

The lovely support and feedback I received from my family and friends - including the public and feedback received from my very first customers. I still get pretty excited and honoured whenever someone buys something from my shop.

What do you find most challenging about being an Etsy seller?

Stocking my shop and having enough hours in the day to make things to fill it. I've got so many ideas in my head and plans but there aren't enough hours in the day to make them come to life!  

What's your personal philosophy behind your shop / products?

Quality and craftsmanship are very important to me - I take pride in the care and effort I put into making items and won't sell something if I feel it isn't 100% perfect to me. I really want my customers to be happy with the finished product. 
I recently had a lovely lady commission me to create crochet animals to match their family pets. I had so much fun making those little guys come to life.     

What do you do when you aren't working?

When I'm not busy creating things for Little Pink Canary, I take care of my two young boys and husband and try to keep on top of things at home. Oh, and I also have a full time job away from Little Pink Canary!
I love working out at the gym, painting and baking (I own way too many cookbooks). I also can confess that I spend too much time on Pinterest and surfing my favourite blogs such as and and of course the blog that started it all,

Anything else you'd like to tell us or share?

I've recently discovered Instagram - its wonderful to connect with people from all over the world. I try and post daily snaps of what I have been working on and have developed a bit of a fan base which is wonderful. Look for me on instagram - I'm littlepinkcanary.

Thank you Etsy Kids - I am so thrilled to take part in this interview. Thank you.

Hope you visit my shop and remember - I love custom orders!
