1. Tell us about your shop: I started Layer Cake Designs earlier this year. Everyone asks me where I came up with that name. I honestly have no idea, but it works. :) I originally started out doing vinyl decals for friends and family. Everyone loved what I was doing, so I decided to open up an Etsy shop to see if I could sell anything. The shop grew slowly, and I began getting requests for custom work. I had several people ask me about making wooden signs, so I gave it a shot and they turned out great. I added the signs and picture frames to the shop a few months ago, and the response has been almost overwhelming. It was important to me to allow my customers to be able to completely customize their signs, whether they wanted a different quote or saying or a different paint color, so everything is made to order.

2. Tell us about you: Hi! My name is Melanie. I have been married 6 wonderful years to my husband, and we have two crazy, energetic, beautiful kiddos. I am a full time stay-at-home-momma and part time artist, painter and crafter. I love a big cup of coffee in the morning, good Tex-Mex for dinner, Creme Brûlée for dessert, comfy jeans, flip flops, painted toenails, date nights with the hubs, trips to the park with the kids, Coke Zero, fresh flowers in my kitchen, peach cobbler, a glass of red wine and late night chats with my girlfriends. Thank you to Ashley for allowing me to be a part of the Holiday Craft Fair! So much fun!

3. What's your favorite item in your shop and why: It's hard for me to pick just one favorite from my shop, but it has to be the "In This House We Do" sign. I originally saw the idea for this sign on Pinterest, and I decided to make one for my own home. It hangs in our family room and reminds us of the important things to do daily.
