Grand Opening and Giveaway Celebration!

I am excited that a talented crafter and dietitian has combined her talents to create Mora Nutrition.  It is an Etsy shop where you can find food and kitchen accessories.  She makes 100% cotton dishcloths in beautiful colors, shopping bags, and menu lists with much more to come. 

This week in her shop, you will find great deals in celebration of her Grand Opening and she is doing a giveaway here, offering a free gift certificate to her shop!  But first, here is more about Kati, creator of Mora Nutrition...

Why Mora Nutrition Food & Kitchen Accessories? How did you come up with the name?

Let's face it, the name is NOT that creative!  In fact, my Etsy shop is merely an extension of my business Mora Nutrition and its name reflects that.  I have always had a passion for nutrition and love being crafty, so the ability to incorporate both into my career makes me incredibly happy.  Plus, they just seem to go together somehow.

How long have you been crocheting and why do you enjoy it?

I learned to crochet when I was 11 years old. My grandma use to take me with her to one of crochet classes at our local high school. I have been crocheting ever since; however, it wasn't until after the birth of my second son, Ben, that I became obsessed! Now I crochet all the time and find it to be such a calming experience.

What else do you sell in your shop?

I also feature paper products in my shop. All of the paper products I produce are forms that make eating healthier easier. This is a relatively new venture for me, but I love being able to provide people with the tools they need to do something great for themselves AND have them be cute along the way.

What is your favorite thing to make and why?

I enjoy making all of the products featured in my shop...BUT if I had to pick just one, I would probably say the mix and match dishcloths are my favorite. I love that I can make multiple color combinations with them and I love that they are so versatile. Everything else is a close second!

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

That I just auditioned for Oprah!  Yes, I submitted my audition video just this week for a chance to get my own television show.  I don't know if anything will come of it, but it sure was fun to make!  If you want to, check out my Oprah audition video.
