1. Tell us about you and your shop.
My name is Holly and my shop’s name is HollyByGollie.
I live in the high desert of northern Arizona in a little log house with my amazing husband who is also my biggest fan and our dogs Dash and Daisy. The name HollyByGollie was a childhood nickname and I’ve always wanted to use it for a business.
2. How did you get started in your craft?
I’ve been a doodler, drawer, gluer, pencil-marker-paint nut all my life, thanks to my very artistic and talented mother who encourage all avenues of creativity. I started making cards about 7 years ago as a creative outlet that transported me away from life’s demands and allowed me to use the other side of my brain.
3. What tool can you not live without?
That would be my fine tip black pen.
4. What inspires you?
Catalogs, nature, kids, dreams.
5. Name one favorite item from your store.
I love my tropical fish card because it’s fun and great for many occasions.
