BeckySinn Interview

Meet Becky of BeckySinn.etsy.com
Carnivale Creations

Who are you?

My given name is Rebecca Dee Hudson. Becky Sinn is my alter ego stage name! I am a statuesque red-headed native Floridian.
What do you create?
I create my own chaos, jointed soft-sculpture dolls, resin photo jewelry, charm bracelets, and other up-cycled art.
How did you get started?

My Mother is an artist. By the time I was five, I was helping her stuff her dolls. She sold crafts all over the world and I've always aspired to be like her. My Daddy was a wood working artist and a musician, also a huge inspiration! My brothers are also amazing artists as well. I come from
pretty creative stock.
What is unique about your art?

I must say I am most proud of my dolls. I have never really seen any quite like mine, if I do say so myself. Also, I really make an effort to communicate with my customers. I am still in touch with some of my very first clients.

What is your biggest challenge?


What do you love about Etsy?
The Uber cheap listing fees and the Six month long listing activation. Etsy actually makes it easy and affordable to have your own little slice of the e-commerce pie. YAY!
What other interests do you have?

Music! (I play guitar and sing!) Antiques! History! Anything Vintage! All things Victorian!
Where are you in Florida?

I've lived in Ocala my whole life, I am obsessed with historic photos of Ocala and surrounding areas such as Micanopy and Gainesville, and any local history. I am also in love with the amazing Springs and parks that are everywhere in central Florida. Ooh! and our sunsets too!
Where else can we find you?

What disasters have you had?

I have crafting disasters all the time. I am often jabbing my poor fingers with huge needles. Even though that hurts, the worst disaster is a batch of resin that doesn't cure properly.
What animal would you like to be?

I would like to be a dolphin for a day. That probably has something to do with the Sega Genesis game: Echo the dolphin, which I would play till I got blisters and could play no longer.

What SUPER POWER would you like to have?

The power of flight, or mind bullets...because that's telekinesis Holmes.

Where would you go with a Time Machine?

First I'd go to Victorian England, then I'd go to Paris for the Bohemian Revolution and lots of absinthe, then Coney island in the roaring Twenties. These are all places and eras that are extremely fascinating and romantic to me!
What crazy things do you like to do?

The extent of my craziness is poking around abandoned buildings and old cemeteries looking for ghosts and signs of people that have long since passed. For reasons that are NOT supernatural, this pass time can get pretty hairy!

Favorite person?

My brother Mack. We always get each others' warped sense of humor. Love you!!!
Favorite Quote?
Ricky Fitz in American Beauty says, "Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in." I feel you Ricky.
