Introducing Christie of LuvnCrafts
By Anastasia of mattscraftywife



-Shop name:

-Introduction on me:

I am a stay at home, homeschooling Mom to 6 and wife of 13 years to hubby Brad. I enjoy all kinds of crafts, but especially crochet and card making. I have been a follower of Christ since I was 5. Our family enjoys crafting together and camping, hiking, etc. We raise chickens and enjoy gardening.

-How I got started on Etsy:

I make cards and crocheted items for friends and family as gifts. People have said I should sell my crafts. But I really enjoy giving them away more! I had crocheted some baby dresses or a friend when she had her first baby. And she told me about Etsy and said I should set up a shop. My daughter, age 12, does beadwork, and wanted to sell her jewelry. So, I set up a shop so my daughters and I could sell our things.

-How a typical day looks for me:

HA! CRAZY! LOL No, I get up around 5am and have time with the Lord. Then I get on-line and answer e-mails and do Etsy stuff. Then the children get up around 7:30-8am and we eat breakfast. Then we have morning devotions. Then homeschool. Here and there I do housework in between teaching, etc. Usually, all the school stuff is done around 2:30pm (including grading work, etc. Then hubby gets home at 3pm. That's when I do more house work, talk to hubby, work in the garden, etc. Start cooking dinner around 5pm. After dinner clean up and crafting/ relaxing/ gardening, whatever. At 8pm everyone gets ready for bed, and we have our evening book reading and hubby read the Bible aloud. Usually we are in bed around 10pm.

-If I could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?:

With the Lord, or right here with my family.

-My favorite Bible verse?

WOW! Too many to just choose one! Proverbs 3:5-6 is one... "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight" -My favorite Etsy item listing to feature?

These cards my daughter made:
