I live in beautiful northeastern Ohio with my wonderful husband, Tom, our three amazing boys, ages 15, 9, and 4, and our two cats, Harley and Addie.
How did you get your start on Etsy?
I was looking for a place to sell my handmade items online and when I found Etsy I knew it was the perfect place. I was very nervous to take the plunge though . My husband really encouraged me to try it and I'm so glad I did.
How did you choose your shop name?
My shop is named in honor of my grandparents, Bob and Mary Eleanor Huff. My grandma was a wonderful seamstress and taught many, many girls how to sew during her years as a 4H leader. Every summer my sisters and I would spend a week or two at my grandparent's house and Grandma always had a sewing or embroidery project for us to work on with her. My grandpa had a wonderful sense of humor. When he and Grandma were dating he started calling her Eleanor to tease my great-grandparents who insisted she be called by her full name, Mary Eleanor. He was the only person who ever called her Eleanor. They both passed away two years ago, six months apart. They were married 60 years and were a wonderful example for their children and grandchildren of a loving and Christian marriage.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I try to get up before the rest of my family and while the house is quiet I check my emails and Etsy shop. After breakfast I take my oldest son to school and then spend the rest of the morning homeschooling my 3rd grader and preschooler and taking care of my 3-year-old niece. After lunch it's rest time for the kids and I do some sewing. Then it's time for dinner and family time. Sometimes after the kids go to bed I will sew some more.
If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?
With my husband and boys.
What is your favorite Bible verse?
Right now my favorite verse is Isaiah 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?
I think it would have to be my Hooty Hoot fabric organizer basket.
