The Woman Behind LMCreations

I had the opportunity to purchase my current purse from Lisa the creator behind LMCreation. You can read the review here. I wanted everyone to get to know a little more about Lisa and her wonderful creations. ;p Here interview is below, enjoy:

Your Name,Company Name & What you Do

My name is Lisa, my company is LMcreation and I make handmade handbags, purses, business card holders ... basically anything that I can sew.

How did you get started or what motivated you to start your own business?

I've been sewing since I was a little girl. I enjoyed crafts and learned to sew making dolls clothes! I've always enjoyed sewing as a hobby and even made some of my own clothes when I was a teenager. I didn't try to sell anything because I didn't really know what to do or have a way to find customers, or even think that people would buy my things.

I think that discovering Etsy motivated me to start LMcreation. Finding a site just for handmade goods and that was friendlier than ebay meant I could set up an online business in a few hours, which was just fantastic. I thought about it for two or three months then started my store in January 2008. I really didn’t know anything about running a business, but luckily that didn’t stop me. I’m still learning a lot and hopefully getting better each month. My husband has been a great help here, and helps out with a lot of the “boring but important” bits like keeping track of the finances when I'm short on time.

What were you doing before the business?

I was, and still am, a working mom with a full time day job. I would love to make LMcreation my full time job one day.

What do you do for fun?

LMcreation definitely counts as fun!! Plus time with family, movies, reading a few books, the usual kind of things.

Where can we find you? Website, Social Media etc?

If money were no object, what would you do and why?

Quit my day job !!!! Then travel :)
