To thank Leslie for being our 500th Facebook fan, we have decided to feature her shop Gracie Bug Boutique on our blog! Gracie Bug Boutique features gorgeous accessories for girls, handmade by Leslie. Currently, on her FB page, Leslie reminds customers that October 15th is the last day for Halloween tutu’s! Better get shopping! Here is what Leslie had to say:
1) What is your name and where can we find your merchandise online?
Leslie Harris of Gracie Bug Boutique. I can be found on Etsy at http://www.GracieBugBoutique.etsy.com and Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tacoma-WA/Gracie-Bug-Boutique/122773444436908
2) How long have you been crafting for?
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, but I didn’t discover Etsy until July of this year. I was so blessed to meet a few local girls that have mentored me and patiently answered ALL my questions ! 🙂 I am a Mom of two with a full time job outside of the home. Creating and Crafting is my outlet! Its the “ME” time in the day!
3) Tell us about the items in our shop.
I love creating handmade accessories, hair bows, flowers, headbands and my daughters favorite thing big fluffy tutus!
4) What inspires you?
I draw a lot of inspiration from my children and friends. Gracie Bug Boutique wouldn’t exist with out my Gracie (Bug). I really enjoy making custom pieces, it is so much fun for me to take a customer or friends request and turn it into reality!
5) What are some other online artisan shops you enjoy?
Just be Happy makes some of the cutest crocheted hats and toys I have ever seen! – I also love Jayme of Lillipops style and designs. There are so many amazing artists out there right now I find new things to love every day!
