See her current eBay auctions: Little Miss Divine

JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

TONYA: I started sewing 5 years ago. I wanted a unique themed outfit for my daughter to wear to her party and couldn't find what I was looking for so I decided to make my own. I was instantly addicted! The rest is history!! My sister taught me the basics and I am self taught from there.

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

TONYA: I started selling about 4 years ago. Before eBay, I was stay a home mommy (and still am)!!

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

TONYA:Yes! It was a "strawberry shortcake" themed outfit I made for my daughters birthday party. I think it sold for around $40.00.

JM: How did come up with your name, Little Miss Divine ?

TONYA: I was always telling my daughter how "divine" she looks and the name came from that!

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

TONYA: Yes, Dollylane. I was invited to join them a few months ago. I love new friendships that I have made. All the ladies are so professional & helpful, they are a great support system!

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

TONYA:Anything girly and anything PINK! I love whimsical fabrics. I specialize in making tops with matching appliqued pants.

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

TONYA: I would love to learn to make jewelry! I would also love to learn to hand smock and expand my business to include childrens jewelry & smocked heriloom clothing.

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

TONYA: I would LOVE to travel to Guatemala!! I've been there once when we adopted our middle child (my Little Divine") and I can hardly wait to return!

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

TONYA: SHOPPING!! I am a clothing addict! Mostly I just love to be at home with my family.

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

TONYA:Thank you SO much JM for featuring me, I am truly honored!
