Feature Friday - No Bake Cakes

Today's Friday Feature is all about one of my favorite things: cakes....No Bake Cakes! This shop features bibs, toys, and diaper or towel cakes with lots of color and flair. Let's get to know Mona from No Bake Cakes!
1. How did you get into crafting?
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. My mom is a crafter and I learned from her at a very young age. I have dabbled in many different crafts. At the moment I am enjoying creating towel cakes and diaper cakes as well as sewing.
2. How did your Etsy shop come to be?
I made a few towel cakes and diaper cakes for gifts for family and friends. Lots of people said I should sell them…including my husband who isn’t one to suggest something like that, so I decided to give it a whirl.
3. What is your favorite part about being creative?
I have several parts that I love. The first is shopping for the ingredients for my cakes…all of the little goodies that I put into them. The second part is actually making the cakes and seeing how the ingredients transform into something marvelous.
4. Are you a full time crafter or do you have a "day job?"
Presently I am a stay at home mom of 2 amazing kids and part time crafter. Before having my kids, I was an elementary teacher.
5. If someone were to buy you a birthday gift on Etsy, what 3 words would they use in their search?
Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate 
6. How do you create your designs?
If I am designing for someone, I usually have a theme that they want. I design for events, occasions, or look at the items I have collected for inspiration.
7. What's in your Soundtrack to Sewing?
I do my crafting to the sound of children’s voices
8. Favorite spots for inspiration?
Stores, magazines, the internet, brainstorming with friends and family.
9. Who inspires you?
My family and close friends inspire me.
10. If you had to choose one item in your shop as a signature piece, what would it be and why?
I would choose the towel cake that is in my banner/avatar. I recently had someone create the banner for me and she suggested using pastel colors as pastel in Spanish means cake. The colors of the polka dot cake suit this thought well.

Thanks so much, Mona, for sharing your shop and story with us. :)
