General Location-I've lived most of my life in Abilene, TX

What is your shop name?-Crazy For Collars http://www.crazyforcollars.etsy.com/

Where does the name of your shop come from?-Obviously, from what I started with making: dog collars

How long have you been creating and what do you create most of?- I've been a crafter for 30+ years, but started with pet related items about 6 years ago

Workspace-tell us a little about where you get crafty- I have a wonderfully large, fully cluttered, room with lots of light

Any advice you would like to give anyone just starting out?-Don't spread yourself too thin and become overwhelmed with the "little things". Prioritize your life and don't expect immediate success. Also, provide great customer service.

Any fun facts you want to share with us?-I love to collect vintage rhinestone jewelry. I have 2 huge curio cabinets in my LIVING ROOM filled with many of my treasured pieces

Thanks so much for the fabulous interview Suzanne!! Love your wonderful collars, keep up the wonderful work!!
