JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

HEIDI: I actually started sewing and creating a couple of years ago. I was involved in art/design since grade school and was so excited to find a new outlet for all my "creative" energy. I started sewing in middle school and have taught myself alot along the way.

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay?

HEIDI: I started selling designs last year. I love all the people on Ebay and have had such great experiences. It takes awhile to get your name out there and I am always continually coming up with new designs for all those little men out there. Boys deserve designer outfits too :0)

JM: What did you do before eBay?

HEIDI: I am a nurse in an emergency room. I continue to do that part-time along with sewing and making custom creations.

JM: Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay?

HEIDI:Oh, do I remember.......I sold a 3 pc set for around $30. I might have a picture but you wouldn't want to see it.

JM: How did come up with your name, My Kidz Closet?

HEIDI: My ebay id is actually my son's name....My Kidz Closet was simply something I came up with on a whim. Both names I picked out long before I even started creating customs.

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

HEIDI: I belong to Boutique Wish. . I simply responded to an ivitation to the group. They are such a wonderful group of gals and they have been so supportive. I feel very lucky to be in such a talented group of designers. I like everything about this group!!!!!

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

HEIDI: I really don't have a favorite thing to create....I love it all!!! I strive to come up with different designs and pieces of all varieties. Why? Keeps me on my toes and hopefully giving customers a wide range of things to choose from.

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

HEIDI: I can't pinpoint just one in particular. I am a perfectionist so fine tuning all of my sewing skills all the time is something I strive for. I want my articles of clothing to last, and be able to be worn by real rowdy boys!!!!!!

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

HEIDI: I would love to travel to the east and west coast.

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

HEIDI:I love being a wife and mother. I love a good book, waterskiing, camping, travel, and don't forget the scrapbooking :0).

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

HEIDI: Thanks so much to everyone that has been so supportive!!! Thanks to Boutique Wish for giving me a chance and to my husband and kids for being there for me in my new venture. Also, thanks to all my customers!! Your are the greatest!!!
