Introducing Querida Jones,

of Agape Gift Shoppe

How did you start on Etsy ?

I heard about it in a magazine that I was reading in a dentist office. I was and still do sell most of my items locally and through the word of mouth of my female family members

What does a typical day look like for you ?

Well I am a Home Schooling Mom so my day begins at 6 am with chore and breakfast. And then my teaching day lasts until lunch. I try to fit in at least 45 min of working out which usually involves jogging with our Rescued Greyhound Nina. From there it's typically dinner, family time or some kind of sports event for my son. I only spend three days a week creating and that's usually done after 9 at night when no one can distract me.

If I could choose anywhere in the world to be for one day it would be?


My favorite Bible verse is:

Ephesians 2:8 For by the grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

My favorite listing is:

my Fantasia Butterfly
