Designer of the Week - Sunshine*Kisses

This week get to know Johnett of Sunshine*Kisses. She lives in North Carolina with her husband one daughter Lauren who is 3 years old.

See her current eBay auctions: Sunshine*Kisses

JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

JOHNETT: I started sewing in junior high school I took sew classes and I still take sewing classes to learn new things, I also taught my self some things.

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

JOHNETT: I have been selling my designs on ebay for about 3 years now. Before I started selling my designs on ebay I sold antiques on ebay and had my own antique shop. I also sell at a local boutiue here in town.

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

JOHNETT:I do remember it was a pair of overalls and boy have I come along way LOL. I don't have a picture I lost it when my computer crashed. Gosh I think they sold for around $65.00.

JM: How did come up with your name, Sunshine*Kisses?

JOHNETT:I use to call Lauren my Sunshine when I got done making outfits and showed her she
would hug and kiss it. That is how I came up with Sunshine*Kisses.

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

JOHNETT:I don't belong to a group at this time still looking for the right one:)

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

JOHNETT: I so enjoy sewing and I have learned to smock recently and I truly enjoy smocking. I also love to make twirl skirts so it would be a toss up between them.The smocking has always amazed me and it is relaxing. The twirls are just fun with what you can do with them.

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

JOHNETT: Well I am learning photgraphy now. I think it is important to have quality photos for your auctions. Plus Lauren is growing so fast I would like to capture it through photography.

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

JOHNETT:There are so many countries I would like to see but I would have to say Africa I collect African art that has been used by tribes.

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

JOHNETT: Just spending as much time with Lauren and my husband Travis.

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

JOHNETT:I truly am honored you would ask me to be designer of the week. I would like to thank you and all the ladies that have helped me along the way.
