The TootsieWootsie Fabulous interview and GIVEAWAY!!!!

Have you heard of The Tootsie Wootsie?  Well if you haven't you have been missing out!
Mariel Pabst Casperson is the lovely lady behind an incredible line of fashion jewelry, a fantastic blog with tons of tutorials and is a mother of 2 and a busy wife to top it all off.  I have known Mariel for over a year now and I am always amazed at her positivity and energy!
I had the pleasure of interviewing her for this post, so let's get to know her better:

Magnetic Mayhem:What inspired you to create The TootsieWootsie Boutque?
The Tootsie Wootsie:I was pregnant and we only had 1 car and my husband worked long hours so that’s when I decided to start a blog about my crafts to keep me busy. I started making things for me to wear and I would have people complimenting me and that’s when I decided to open a shop!.

MM:Where do you find the most inspiration for your craft?

TTW:Sleep and from trial and error. I gain knowledge from it and gives me plenty of other ideas to put into the works.

MM :What has been the most satisfying way that you have found to promote what you do?

TTW:Making lots of crafty and inspirational blogger friends, because of that I have been a successful business and gained a great relationship with great bloggers. In other words I find networking and word of mouth really helpful with my success.

MM:What would you change, if anything, about the handmade world if you could?

TTW:Hmm… I am not really sure because the handmade world is absolutely incredible, So many creative artists that I get so blown away sometimes.
One thing that does come to mind is give credit when credit is due.

MM:Tell me about your new website and blog.

TTW: am super excited about my new website! It’s more professional and more me, I feel like I can express myself so much better and offer so much more then I could before.

MM:Dreams?  Desires?  5 year plan for your business?

TTW:My dream (I know it’s a long shot) is to be invited to the Martha Stewart show and do some crafting with her on t.v.
My desires are having a successful business and it just gives me so much joy and pleasure knowing that people really like my products, Also I want to take this into a path to be able to help other crafters like me.  One thing I have for my business plan is giving back by helping others as I have been helped!
Awesome Mariel!!  Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all my questions!
