FEATURED SELLER: Dosiak - Dorota

Dorota is the person behind Dosiak - an Etsy shop specializing in a variety of crocheted items - from jewelry, thru socks, bathing suits, table cloths and shawls all the way to dresses. 

Tell us something about yourself

My name is Dorota. I'm 37 and I live in a small down in Greater Poland. Anything handmade has been my hobby for many many years. Actually I've been knitting since I was 6 years old. My mom taught me how. I learnt how to crochet a little later. I'm self taught, I learnt everything from a book. I opened my Etsy store a little over a year ago and I'm very happy that I did. Thanks to Etsy, I've met a lot of wonderful people. 
Apart from crocheting, I love baking and I've heard that I'm very good at it:)

What else do you do besides creating? 

Besides crocheting, I'm a wife and a mother of two teenage sons. At the moment I'm a full time Etsy seller. I'm taking care of two sick parents and I am actually not able to have a job outside of the house.  

How does your day look like? 

Most of my days look the same. I get up at 6am, fix breakfast and drive my sons to school. Later I shop, take care of my sick in laws, fix dinner and finally get to sit down in front of my computer. I check my email and what's going on in my store and then I continue creating. 
I feel like my days look the same as every other woman's who is working from home. 

What inspires you? 

I get inspired by pretty much anything: nature, people on the street... A lot of my ideas come from magazine for crafters, blogs, handmade forums, but mostly I just make what my clients come up with. 
You can say that I try to make my clients wardrobe dreams come true.
