Featured Shop of the Week- Little House of Crafting

Our featured shop this week is Little House of Crafting, owned by Toni Conn, who has a collection of fun geekery items. Read about her shop, and then enter the giveaway below.

Little House of Crafting came about in early 2013 when my friend, and partner in crime, Lilly Inverse of Lilly Inverse Designs began making and selling art in Artist Alleys at anime conventions. I decided to join in the fun and created a line of pinback buttons. Later, I added perler/pixel art (also known as drawing with plastic) and now offer pinback button designs in magnet form!

The most challenging thing about having my own business is definitely marketing. You can make the best products in the world but if nobody knows about them then you can't share them with anyone! Keeping up on the Pintrest and Wanelo shares as well as staying involved with my fans on Facebook and Twitter takes a lot of time but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

My favorite color is green, as evident by my logo and store colors. My favorite way to network is definitely Facebook. There is so much out there! In my spare time, I like to relax while watching tv shows with my husband.

The most time consuming item to make in my shop is the Dragonite perler (below). The impressive 11"x11" beastie consists of almost 1,900 beads and takes about two and a half hours to complete!

Toni is celebrating National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, by helping to raise money for The Offices of Letters and Light. The Offices of Letters and Light organizes events where children and adults engage in  the creative endeavor of creative writing. Events consist of NaNoWriMo, NaNoWriMo Young Writer's Program and Camp NaNoWriMo, during which NaNoWriMo can be completed in the summer months as well.
