Meet Anita Beeghley from Faux Sweet Diva & My Crafty Addictions

♥ Please tell us about yourself:
I am a mom to four children and wife to an awesome husband that runs two businesses. I'm originally from Washington DC and now reside in upper Maryland. Anything that has to do with crafting I find myself learning it with ease and adding it to my resume. Aside of crafting I am also an award winning cake decorator and an amazing singer!

♥ How long have you been in business?
I've been in business close to 2 years!

♥ Please describe your business:
It's hard to put a title to what I do but i'll try.
I love everything sweet, frilly, girly, fru fru, shabby chic and more. I guess I live in a bubblegum gum drop world and my business reflects that! Everything I do is geared towards what every kid and adult loves!
I make Candy and sweet scented Faux Cupcakes and Bath & Body products. Along with candles, jewelry, tutu's, wands!

♥ Tell us what inspires you:
My daughter. I want to establish something great for the future in hopes that she takes over. She shares the same passion and is my right hand to everything I do.

♥ Please share with others, your best marketing techniques:
Facebook! I firmly believe that if you post and keep your fans updated it can change your world!

♥ What do you love most about your business?
Creating!! I have ADD and sadly my mind never rest but the beautiful outcome is everything you see in my shops :-) Crafting is my drug and Joanns, AC Moore and Michaels are my pusher!

♥ Please tell us why have chosen Craft CafĂ© as a venue for your business?
Here's the truth. I love how Craft Cafe doesn't allow commercial made items! I've sold on other venues and I always get turned off when I see commercial made items being passed off as handmade when it's not. Craft Cafe is truly home of the handmade and I adore that.

♥ What advice can you give for crafters/artisans just starting out?
KEEP SWIMMING!!!! I've been at this for 2 years and i'm still pressing towards my goals. Nothing is promised in this line of business and if you want it, you have to give it 100%. If it's your passion, if it's what completes you, if it's all you think about day and night, DO NOT give up. I believe in God and blessings. He gives it to you in it's entirety when he's ready.

♥ Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I see me having my own boutique that also hosts awesome parties! Keep your eyes open for me, I promise you will see my name in lights very soon :-)

♥ Lastly, would you like to offer our readers a special or coupon code for your Craft Cafe shop?
