Designer of the Week - Glitz Concepts

This week get to know Carrie of Glitz Concepts.

She lives in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, a very fun part of the city, with her husband son Finnegan. He'll be 2 in April.

See Carrie's current Etsy listings: Glitz Concepts

JM: Carrie, when did your interest in creating hats start?

CARRIE: My husband always asks if I can make things we need before we buy them. Finnegan needed a winter hat.

JM: Your hats, or should I say, helmets are so unique. What inspired them?

CARRIE:My little guy. He's so fun and expressive.

JM: What has been your favorite hat design?

The monkey has been the most successful, but I like my other helmets because of all the different color combos I can use. I love things that are bright and colorful.

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

CARRIE: I wish I knew more of the business and marketing end skills. I'm kinda flying solo and figuring it out as I go. I'd also love to be able to knit. I've tried and just feel "needle-dumb" every time.

JM: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

CARRIE:I've always had a dream of not only traveling to Europe and Asia, but living there. I have a cousin who's living in Denmark at the moment and I’m so jealous. There's just so much history and culture to learn about and explore in that hemisphere.

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides making fabulous hats?

CARRIE: As a family we love to get outdoors when we get the chance. Whether it's a walk to the neighborhood park, or traveling across country to a bridge site (my husband is a bridge designer. We get to go with when he goes to build bridges) (it'll be Maui this spring! Yay!)

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

CARRIE:I've loved having the ability to stay at home with Finn, and really appreciate the people behind Etsy who have given us\ crafters these types of opportunities.
