Xenotees GIVEAWAY!!!

* THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED:)*
HERE WE GOOOO AGAIN! YAY:)
another GIVEAWAY is upon us! another wonderful friend i've made in this etsy community! another KILLER seller full of style and SUPPORT!
why yes, it's NOELLE of
www.XENOTEES.etsy.com
let's pick her brain shall we? not in the gross way. oh, my bad, i'm probably the only one who even thought of it that way to begin with & now i've planted that seed. moving on.....
1. tell us about your shop. when did you first open your shop & what made you choose to sell on etsy?

I screen-print my original designs on t-shirts, pullovers, scarves and tote bags.

February 23, 2008 – that was the day I opened up my shop! A few people told me about Etsy- that it might be a good place to sell my shirts, but the real inspiration was my sister’s shop, Torque (http://www.etsy.com/shop/torque). She seemed to be doing really well with it, so I thought it was worth it to try it myself. I’m really glad I did.

2. do you sell on etsy full or part time?

I would say it’s pretty much full-time, probably more like a surgeon’s hours, but the pay can feel like it’s a part-time job. Only thing to do is keep truckin’ + if need be, reassess the way I’m doing things. I’m planning on making pillows, flour sack towels + clocks soon so I can at least cut back on my inventory. Also, I get so busy with what I am selling that I have trouble finding time to be creative so that I can come up with new designs. I’m hoping that branching out will give me a little freedom.

3. who are your top 5 favorite musicians/bands/songwriters etc.? (i realize this is almost a mean question because how can one choose but i love music & i need to know what kind you love too!)

Only 5, whew, that’s a hard..
1. Roxy Music (the Brian Eno years)
2. Simon & Garfunkel
3. Blue Oyster Cult
4. The Kinks
5. The Stranglers
Honorable Mentions: Patti Smith, Bad Brains, Miles Davis, everything on the 40’s XM radio station and Pink Floyd. I could keep going, but I’ll stop there for now!

4. what are some of your favorite things/hobbies?
Reading
Drawing
Gardening
Watching weird movies
Listening to music
Looking at real estate online + fantasizing about moving
Playstation – but I don’t have much time for playing lately
