Mindi Hinson from MindisCustomCreation says:

Hi all!

I have been creating and designing things for as long as I can remember. It hasn’t been until recently that I found my passion for wood working and signs. I am a wife and mother to four kids and four dogs. To say my house is hectic, is an understatement. The entire process of creating my signs is were I find my peace, my “me” time.

I was excited when I found this group. Not only does it give me a chance to get my work out there, but I get to see al the beautiful items everyone else makes that I may not have seen otherwise.

Thanks for excepting me to the group!

Patricia from IntricateAccessories says:

Hello!

My name is Patricia and I’m an Intricate Bead Artist & Street Style Knitwear Designer.

I started off by creating knitwear fashion and accessories for myself. As an Intricate Bead Artist, I have created many purses and pieces of art with thousands of tiny Japanese Beads.

Intricate Accessories was opened in March of 2017 and it really has been a positive experience. This year I hope to add some bead accessories.

I found a link to this group in the forums. I’m happy to be a part of this team.

Gail from QuiltSewPieceful says:

Hi everyone! This is Gail from QuiltSewPieceful.

So, you can probably guess that I’m a quilter! I have been selling my quilts, pillow, table runners and more for 9 years. Gasp! Time really does seem to fly. My shop slogan is “Quilts for Holidays and Everyday”. I love to make items for holidays, but especially for Christmas. I seem to specialize in Christmas Tree Skirts, but also make lots of table runners, some wall hangings and a few lap quilts.

I discovered quilting over 20 years ago. I wanted a quilt for our king size bed, so I went to a quilt shop. I honestly thought that’s where you bought quilts. I was nearly speechless when I discovered I could make my own, by buying the fabric there, and they would even teach me to do it. I have been hooked ever since. Of course, it would have been a lot cheaper to buy the best quilt that I could find, than to take up quilting, but I have never regretted it!

Years later, I taught quilting classes at that same shop, and even was the shop manager for a number of years.

I sell on Etsy because I just can’t stop buying all the amazing new fabrics I find, and turning those fabrics into quilts.

Thanks for having me on your team.

This pattern is for a Christmas Tree Skirt that I designed.

Barbara Hagee from SewTrulyMe says:

Hello! Although my shop says I’ve been open since 2009, I have only been actively selling for two years. There has been so much for me to learn selling on Etsy. The forums and teams are an incredible resource.
There is so much more for me to continue to learn. If I fail to successfully attach a sample listing, my apologies. One more thing to add to the LEARN TO DO list.

As I’ve gotten older, I started transitioning into making making smaller and lighter items. I enjoy the challenge of designing, sewing, and selling mini hats / fascinators.

I look forward to being part of the team. Merry Christmas!

Judy from PiecesOfMePaperCraft says:

My name is Judy and I’ve had my paper crafting shop since 2012, although I’ve been on Etsy since 2009. I previously sold jewelry for my daughter but closed that shop.

I started scrapbooking in 1998 and began selling handmade embellishments on ebay in 2001. I did that for a couple of years, then let it go when the competition started selling mass produced items.

My shop sells mostly handmade cards, but I also sell gift tags and DIY blank tags. My shop was closed from Sept. 2017 to April 1, 2018 while I underwent treatment for breast cancer. I’m healthy now and happy to be back.

Bobbie Ann Pimm from PimmCreations says:

Hi everyone! I’m into a little bit of everything. I started painting abstracts and then lamps from wine bottles, night lights, lighted/decorated bottles, jewelry and will be adding some pillow and other decorating accessories and home necessities, too. I mostly focus on Upcyling and Reusing to reduce my personal carbon imprint on the environment. This lamp made from a wine bottle and an acrylic skin represents me perfectly.

Cindy Witt from Bowsbaublesandbeads says:

Hi Everyone! My name is Cindy Witt. I live in the sunshine state where even at Christmas it’s July! I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. Several years ago I fell in love with making tutus. They put a smile on everyone’s face! I put my fun tutus on everything from nail polish to mason jars! Then a Christmas I decided to put a tutu on my Christmas tree. From there my tree skirts were born.

I custom make them to match the customers tree and so far they have been a big hit.

Simona from LaLunadiLanaHandmade says:

Hi everyone!

I live in Rome and have two children, I love to crochet items for babies and child and this is what I sell in my shop.

My dream is to crochet full time and leave my official job in a boring office because my minds always go to my yarns and new project and I believe that Mums can do everything!

Christmas is my favourite days of the year so… this team match perfectly to me.

To introduce my items in this team I choose this item…
matching with the Chritmas moode, this hat is my own design and I hope one day to write the pattern and became also a crochet designer..

I know it’s springtime now… but why not Christmas in May?

Marta Gotliba from ArtByMartaGotliba shares:

Hello everyone,

My name is Marta and I am totally addicted to color pencils. I draw almost every day and since I have many drawings in a folder I decided to open another Etsy shop (I have one that sells embroidered textiles) to sell my art works. My favorite themes are birds and desserts but occasionally I go a bit outside my comfort zone and try drawing other subjects. This is my most favorite bird – kingfisher, it also describes my work style – loads of color, white background and many structured details.

Good afternoon friends! I was excited to see this group and really happy the members joined me to your splendid creative group!

I’ve been living in amazing Ukraine since my childhood. I went to China 2 years ago and started my career as an artist and designer. I was decorating Chinese restaurants and kindergartens there. Now I came back to my family and created this shop.

This is our family business. Everyone of us makes some unique products which can help you to find unique wreaths.
