Today I'm featuring the "KID" from FIRECRACKER KID PRIMITIVES, a great Artisan from our PAFA Team!
Here's her interview and some photos from her shop!
1) Name of your business *and how you got your name* Hi ya folks! My name is Carol and I'm the Firecracker Kid, born on the
fourth of July! Married to my soul mate, Tim, we produced two wonderful children.
We Love the Lord, our family, which includes our kitty kats,
and our home built by Tim, of 33 years and counting. We've been wood crafting
for over 25 years now and take great pride in our creations.
With us you'll find our one of a kind wood crafts, plus reproduction
dough bowl keeps and more primitive, country, and cottage wood crafts all
handmade in our woodshop by our hands for your home. You can be assured great
attention is given to quality and detail.
2)How long have you been in business? We've been on Etsy since March 30, 2008, which is where we've done
our best and have decided to stay.
3)Who or what inspires you? I get my inspiration from my mind when the good Lord grants me good days.
So I should say, "He" gives me inspiration. Plus the need to pay the
mortgage is inspiration enough in itself. 4)What is your creative style; primitive, country, folkart? All of the above. Tim and I can do it all.
(YES, THEY CAN!)
5)What medium do you use in creating, clay, fabric, altered art,wood etc.? We use wood, wood, and more wood. I also dabble in fabrics
and altered art when the mood strikes me.
