Artisan Teams & Groups Co-Host RockerChic

Last evening at 8 pm est, Kristie, the one and only, incredibly talented, shamelessly funny, and deliciously one of kindest in thought and deed persons that I have ever had the honor of getting to know, was my guest co-host on the Artisan Teams & Groups Show.

We learned that Kristie is the fearless and never ruffled leader of the Cafe Mom Etsy Team, or CEM, as they lovingly call themselves. With more than 260 members, and just two co-leaders.

Working full-time in retail merchandising has been an inspiration in how she is able to present a unique view of selling, as well as arranging her trade/craft show booth, while overseeing the CEM team, her own etsy shop, a rambunctious young daughter, husband, and a goat they affectionally call Oreo.

Kristie manages to keep her ilfe in perspective.

Following about a year long conversation with other etsy members, Kristie felt her heart speak of the need to form a group simply to help other Mom's to enter the world of online selling, promoting, and human support. For her, this is a hobby. In my opinion, a true way of Paying It Forward!

Cafemom Etsy Moms Street Team Mission Statement: Our goal is to be the best Etsy sellers and crafters we can be, individually and as a group. We strive to learn together, and grow together. We promote each others shops and crafts. We come together from all walks of life with one common bond: Motherhood.... As different as we all are... we have all held a child in our arms, wiped away tears, and wished we were the ones hurting instead! We know what it's like to have your heart walk outside our bodies... And through our bond, we put our differences aside and come together to promote handmade, "mother-made" goods.

Kristie grew up in a household of self-sufficiency where they made their own clothes. For this, and her spunky, strong sense of self-esteem, she was teased at school. So consider this bullies, just look at her now! Don't you mess with our Rocker cause Charlie will be certain to "nip" you in the bud, bud!

And lest we forget, Mrs. Rocker won last weeks weekly Artisan's Challenge, and is currently in 1st place over all of the other entries that placed 1st, and is headed straight to the finish line with this awwwwdorable, Halloween costume dress:
