Merchant Monday Circle Featuring Carol The Firecracker Kid

Good Monday Morning to you all. Hope you all had a great weekend. Today I am featuring Carol, The Firecracker Kid. Her and her husband do some wonderful woodwork. I have a want list a mile long. :) I am sure after taking a look at her Etsy store you will to!

1) Name of your business *and how you got your name*
Hi ya folks! My name is Carol and I'm the Firecracker Kid, born on the fourth of July! Married to my soul mate, Tim, we produced two wonderful children. We Love the Lord, our family, which includes our kitty kats, and our home built by Tim, of 33 years and counting. We've been wood crafting for over 25 years now and take great pride in our creations. With us you'll find our one of a kind wood crafts, plus reproduction dough bowl keeps and more primitive, country, and cottage wood crafts all handmade in our woodshop by our hands for your home. You can be assured great attention is given to quality and detail.

2)How long have you been in business
We've been on Etsy since March 30, 2008, which is where we've done our best and have decided to stay.

3)Who or what inspires you
I get my inspiration from my mind when the good Lord grants me good days. So I should say, "He" gives me inspiration. Plus the need to pay the mortgage is inspiration enough in itself.

4)What is your creative style, primitive, country, folkart
All of the above. Tim and I can do it all.

5)What medium do you use in creating, clay, fabric, altered art, wood etc.
explain here if you would like to about your business and what you make and sell
We use wood, wood, and more wood. I also dabble in fabrics and altered art when the mood strikes me.

6)What are your links (list your etsy shop, eBay, web site, blogs etc.)
