Shoutout to Kerin of Pipsqueaks!

I know I've said it before...but I'll say it again... I really LOVE the Etsy Maine Team.  Why, you may ask?  Because I have the opportunity to "meet" (even if just virtually for the near future) so many wonderfully talented individuals!  We are all crafty in our own way, and seeing others' artistic/creative expressions has always been an inspiration for me.  We all have our back story.. and if you "listen" closely, you can decipher some of it in by the quality of craftsmanship in our wares.  

 Without further Kerin!

Name: Kerin Lindahl

Business Name(s): Pipsqueaks

Why did you decide to open/start your own business?: I started making the sandwich bags for my kids and their lunches, and gave them out as gifts. I am a stay at home mom and was looking for work that I could either do from home, or was flexible while my kids are in school, and with a lot of encouragement from friends and family I jumped into selling & creating reusable items.
