 I am a 50 year old mother of 2 daughters, ages 7 and 21.  I love to create using different materials.  I was born and raised in Maryland and now live on 6 acres in the country in western North Carolina.  I am very active in our church.

How did you get started on Etsy?
My sister-in-law told me about Etsy.  I started Caldwell Creations and now have started Got U Covered to sell aprons, handbags and other items I like to sew.

How did you choose your shop name
Got U Covered came out of a desire to create a line of clothes for smaller women who are too "mature" for the teen look but cannot find clothes to fit in the women's section.  

What does a typical day look like for you?  I am up at 5:30 am to let out our 4 small dogs.  Then I pack lunch for my 7 year old, get her ready and drive her to school.  Back at home I do housework and sewing and on Wednesday and Thursday I work for 2 hours a day as a secretary for a Methodist Church.  I pick up my daughter in the afternoon and it's soon time to start the evening meal for the family.  Evenings are spent helping with homework or sewing or other projects and on Monday and Wednesday evenings we are at Church.  Then it's time to go to bed and start all over again the next day!
Where would you like to be for a day?
Lying on a beach in Destin, Florida.

What is your favorite bible verse? 
John 14:3 - to think, Jesus has gone to prepare a place for me!

What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?  
Olive Bag, I love the vintage material.

Thanks so much to Lynn for sharing with us.  Please take a moment to visit her shop. Be sure to return to this blog post to leave a comment about your favorite item for a chance to win the glasses case.
