Caroline from SoyCandlesbyCaroline shares:

Hello everyone! My name is Caroline and I have an Etsy shop in which I sell my hand-poured soy candles! Soy Candles are a much healthier alternative to other candles on the market. I am passionate about the candles I pour and believe this Lemongrass Candle best represents Soy Candles by Caroline!

Hi – my name is Sandra from SD Digital Design. My shop is filled with adorable printable art that shares a message, offers inspiration or just makes you smile! I combine text and graphics into one-of-a-kind digital designs!

I started my Etsy shop believing it was “possible”. The first print I designed reminds me dreams do come true.

Savinaki from DriadesNatural shares:

Hello! I am Savina.

Me and my husband own a small, family skincare company based in Greece. We produce 100% natural, freshly handmade to order herbal beauty elixirs. Most of them are vegan and organic, all of them aroma therapeutic.

We are new to Etsy but our lab has a presence of more than 7 years in the Greek market.

We love what we do! Most of all, we love to have happy clients who after using our products realize what Nature can do for our skin and mood!

Nice to be here with you.

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.

Defne of TegmenMandalaArt  says:

Hello Everyone. My name is Defne and I live in Izmir, Turkey with my husband, 12 year old son , two dogs (Jack Russell and Doberman ) and a Bearded Dragon.

I come from a design background and I am passionate about all kinds of crafts and crafts related things.

My main interests include crocheting, painting, stitching, knitting, wood burning etc. but I especially love to create mandalas.

All items on my page are unique and handmade by myself. When creating a mandala I do my best to impart as much love and as many good vibes as I can into each piece!

This is a crocheted Mandala Doily for Christmas.  The pattern was created by myself and is unique. It’s a small representation of my mandala related creations in my shop.

Missy Jo and Erica from BeKindCreativeDesign says:

Hello everyone! We are an artistic mother-daughter duo who have a creative background and passion for art. Together we have experiences such as floral design, teaching children’s art classes and visual/fashion merchandising. Our shop is Be Kind Creative Designs. We are now open in Wilmington, NC at Blue Moon Gift Shops and are looking to expand through Etsy.

We chose to feature this 3 piece set of wood blocks with a Tree, Star & Twine. This piece is a good representation of what our shop consists of – lots of reclaimed wood and a variety of materials. It is a subtle piece of holiday décor that is cute and unique!

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.

Hi, just joined the team. Thank you for having me!

I am a crochet designer and recently quit my day job to focus on designing. My current favourite item in my shop – and it changes as each new design becomes my favourite! – is this shawl pattern.

I love it because it’s my favourite colour combination of mustard and blue and it’s perfect for this time of year. I’ve been wearing it a lot in the last couple of weeks.

Hi, my name is Natalia.

Here is my hand made earrings freshwater pearls teardrops wire wrapped in gorgeous ornate filigree sterling silver.

Mairi from mairidesign says

Hi, I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s work.

I design stained glass home decor and jewellery and have been preparing my Christmas decorations for the upcoming months.

Here is a set of three flat glass baubles to hang on the festive tree or in the window. I made them as presents for students last Christmas and immediately received another three bulk orders for office gifts and window garlands.

The glass has a really beautiful iridescence.

Hiya, I have been on Etsy for a few years now but this is the first year I have taken part #EtsyCIJ. I just love Christmas and to be able to make Christmas items in July, that’s a bonus! Here is my favourite Christmas make. I used mine for almost 6 years now.

 

Thank you I have an art shop in Etsy where you can find original paintings and prints. My shop has been accepted to the wholesale category. I am an artist working and living in Israel. Have exhibited word wide. For now I look for selling my art as my studio is full! I prepared some starter packs in my shop and some famed prints that could use as Christmas gifts …Please enter and see my art …hope you will like it. I will be glad to receive comments.

Dorothy Lollipop from DorothyLollipopKnits says

Hello I am Dorothy Lollipop…. my name is my brand! I market my knitted toys as ‘Unique’ because I design and write all the patterns myself. Having built up a range of unique hand-knitted toys over many years I began selling on Etsy in 2013 Some of my toys have been used to support charities in the UK and Australia. They have been used as props for professional photographers and for stage productions. I also do a variety of commission work and have designed two knitted characters for a Children’s book. Each of my toys can be custom made using any choice of colours and details. All my knitted toys have been professionally tested and CE labelled “safe and suitable for babies and children of all ages”. It’s so nice to have been accepted into the CIJ Team My favourite Christmas item is the knitted reindeer…. I love making them as each one has it’s own unique character and cheeky smile!

 

Hello everyone, My name is Jurgita and i am from Lithuania. I am making stone beaded jewelry and hair accessories. I love travelling, it inspires my creations. My brand name – “Ta-Daa Accessories”. I have my studio at home and sell my creations online. I am happy to be a part of CIJ and spread my creations around the world!

Hi my name is Mikshita and I’m from Surrey, U.K. I am owner and maker of Small special moments. We make unique message in a bottle and this is our first ever year doing Christmas in July. Thank you for letting us be a part of it. We started last year October(fairs only) and have now decided to concentrate on our Etsy shop this year.
There are plenty of message in a bottle on Etsy so what makes us so unique? We are the very few who hand foil each personalised message with customers chosen colour, have the message hanging perfectly with or without a charm. We offer our customers the chance to build their own bottle and offer option to have it freestanding, hanging or as a magnet. Last year’s best sellers over Christmas were these little beauties.
