Welcome Brooke Fish of Pure & Noble...a fun interview to catch a glimpse into this gal's life.
I love how the blogosphere allows us to create new friendships.
I have enjoyed getting to know Brooke and I hope you do too.We have a lot in common including a Jude.
Without further ado...
Why the name "Pure & Noble"?
It's from Philippians 4:8. I want to honor God in all I do. It's a reminder for me that this blog has to honor Him, not become an idol.
How on earth do you find time to be so creative with 2 young boys at home?
Ummm...you are REAL sweet. I don't feel creative at all. And, to be honest, sometimes I feel guilty for the little bit that I do if it's not with the boys. I try to engage them in crafts as much as possible, but my oldest hates it and my youngest wants to do whatever his brother does. So, I try to compromise with them and I have a little work station in my office/sewing room where they can work/color/play while I do stuff.
What are your hopes in the creative sense for 2011?
I want to do more stuff with my hubby; Etsy shop and all. I hope to extend our offerings on etsy and get him to do a few blog postings on Pure and Noble. I think that would be so fun for us and my readers.
What is your favorite ETSY store (besides mine of course)?
Well yes, there's yours and...Inaluxe . She uses the most amazing colors and shapes. It reminds me of Charley Harper. I love that.
Thanks for introducing us to a new and cool shop.
If you could only sell one item in your shop what would it be and why?
Ok, I have to answer this two ways - the selfish way and the giving way. Selfish - my bags because I get to be super creative with texture, color and print. Giving - my Say Something line because it allows the buyer to put their own personal touch to it. I think that makes it really special and fun.
You must admit these totes are amazing!
If you could share a meal with 6 people (alive, dead, fictional) who would you dine with?
Man this is a hard one. I think I'd have to say, Jesus, Paul (from the Bible), Audrey Hepburn, John Lennon, Andy Warhol, my husband ( I wouldn't want to have this major of a discussion/dinner without him.) Ha, looking at my list makes me laugh - I think Jesus and Andy would have a LOT to talk about. :)
I agree that would be an interesting dinner party...maybe I could cook for you just so I could be there!
