#CIJPopUpMarket #4 Shop – Cindy from Cynhumphrey

Cynhumphrey

Cynhumphrey

1. What is the name of your shop and where do you look for inspiration?

My shop is known as Cynhumphrey. I am drawn to colors in nature photographs when it comes to inspiration for me when creating products.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

When I first started on Etsy, I was solely creating jewelry. I now include repurposed items as well as home and garden decor.

3. What do you love most about your work?

Most of my products are one-of-a-kind items. I love being able to offer something unique to my customers.

4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!        

I really don’t have motivational music that I listen to when I’m creating my items. However, I am a firm believer in women maximizing their fullest potential and believing they can do anything they put their mind to doing. If you can dream it, you can do it.

5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?

Working outside of the home at a full time job and running an Etsy shop doesn’t give me a lot of time to read. When I do read, it’s usually informative material on how to improve my shop experience.

GriffinMaille

1. What is the name of your shop and where do you look for inspiration?

GriffinMaille is the name of my shop. I look on Pinterest, Google and the Facebook groups I belong to that are all Chainmaille.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

I first started with a friend back in 2014 and we were going to make a variety of things from leather to beads. She ended up pulling out and I soley took over the shop and decided to focus on just Chainmaille. I changed the name from ChimericSoul to GriffinMaille late last year. Since then I have been slowly getting sales and I just reached my 30 sales mark.

3. What do you love most about your work?

I love that I can make some money while being a stay at home mom of one. I also just enjoy making things that others will get joy out of.

4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!        

I rarely listen to music while I work, its mostly PPS playing in the background for my little one year old. But I f/when I do listen it’s either country or Katy Perry (I’m not afraid to admit it).

5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?

Again just like music I am currently not reading anything. When I do read it’s mostly books from ether Dean R Koontz or Sue Grafton.

Colorful Creations

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Spring is in full swing, which means summer is on its way! No one is in a hurry to skip past the beautiful spring pastels, but neither will anyone complain when it is time to break out the bright summer color scheme either! Colorful creations are appropriate any time of the year, but especially so as we are breaking out the popsicles for kids and the fireworks for 4th of July. Summer is all about colors!

With that in mind, I asked our Christmas in July team for the most colorful creations in their shops. So here are some of the best of the best in terms of colorful Etsy items!

Karen from TimeTalentJewels shared this absolutely stunning crochet wire necklace, fraught with summer colors! I just love the shapes and sizes of these beads, as well. Don’t they remind you of summer fruits or flourishing gardens? PLUS this listing includes both the necklace and an earrings set! Karen says: “What got me started on this particular Wire Crochet Necklace was a very small bead by the name of “”Dyed Jade”. The colors were just beautiful within that tiny bead and what colors popped out were Corals, Yellows, Aqua, and Chartreuse. I had a lot of fun trying to get the exact colors for this necklace and it finally all came together. There are even little yellow butterflies in the necklace which gives me hope that summer is approaching with the warmer weather that I absolutely love.”

(Pro tip: check out the rest of Karen’s shop! It is filled with equally beautiful and colorful pieces of jewelry!)

Now here is a piece that everyone who wears sunglasses needs – and who doesn’t wear sunglasses in the sunny summer months?! I just love the bright colors and designs on the fabric, and I envision these being a perfect gift this summer season! Here is what Diana, owner of JolieFemme, says:

“My shop is always filled with colorful items. I love color and fun prints! I chose this fabric because the flowers are so bright against the white background and it has little skulls too. This item is easy to find in your bag and keeps your glasses safe and scratchfree. #colorfulisfun Bright color is great to bring a smile and good for any time of the year! #happycolor”.

And now, an item that is rather unique for what you might expect on Etsy – but we love unique here! CorkyCrafts offers an array of seeds for flowers so that your garden can flourish this summer. The owner says:

“What is summer without sunflowers? A garden should make you smile, plus it is a great teaching tool with children too. In Texas sunflowers are king during the hot Texas summer months. We enjoy sharing our TX size flowers with our clients. My shop is filled with cork crafts and when I’m saving up corks for projects during the spring and summer we also offer our flower seeds to help spread a wide array of color in flowers to our customers to enjoy gardening to

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

At the time I created this, we were living in our first house we purchased. My husband loves to spend time outdoors in the summer so we built a huge deck on the back of the house and put in a koi pond right on the side of the deck. I love to take objects and turn them into something entirely different so when I came across these designer koi shoes I just had to make a ring or earring stud organizer out of them. They are also perfect for craft show displays!

Any new moms out there? We’ve got you covered with this uber-cute diaper clutch! No longer does changing diapers have to be a dreaded task, because this colorful creation from artsyEVE is there to brighten up the task. Here is what the owners, Evelyn and Lucy, have to say:

“This little diaper clutch is the perfect little bag for taking a diaper, a small wipe and perhaps a pacifier with you–when you don’t want to carry a large diaper bag! Colorful and fun!”

Georgie from littlecrowdesign says:

When Pantone announced the 2017 colour of the year was ‘Greenery’ it was no surprise to me! Green has always been my favourite colour – it can be bright and cheerful, or serene and calming. This original print features another favourite of mine – succulents! The combination of colour and design makes this pillow cover a special one.

Izabela Gveroska from Gavriila says:

Love this necklace,it is so colorful,I enjoyed making it, I started to make it as a bib necklace,but I ended up as a crochet pendant. It is unique,only one piece, it was so complicated during the process of knitting, so it is impossible to repeat it once again.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:

This is a confetti clip art oval frame set. Photography transparent overlay or solid white background are both included in this set. I used my favorite colors to make the confetti sprinkles – starting with purple! Then on to pink. Couldn’t leave out blue. Blue and orange is a favorite combination. I really love pink and green. So many reasons to love this colorful clipart!

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

This charm bracelet is part of the ‘stripe delight’ range created specifically for the vibrant colours of Spring! The range also has earrings and a necklace available in my shop!

The beads are individually handmade made from colourful paper joined together by hand formed findings.

Victoria Evrard from StarryNightTrees says:

I love mixing lots of different colors together. This is my Celebration tree and I use every bead color I have access to. This is my favorite tree and I have mine out all year and use it as a night light.

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

Multi colored beads and gorgeous carved rainbow fluorite pendant depicting the goddess Kwan Yin. The necklace is beaded with turquoise beads, rainbow fluorite beads, purple river stone, turquoise quartz, orange bone beads, pink, blue and turquoise seed beads, and silver plated pewter spacer beads.

EponasCrystals

And last but not least…another stunning necklace! I hesitated to include two pieces of jewelry in the same post, but let’s be honest, we can never have too many necklaces – especially when they are as bright, colorful, and unique as this beauty from Bungalow42. Connie Lee, owner of this shop, shared the backstory behind this piece:

“There is a folk art vibe to these hand painted fish. Their history is a bit of a mystery. The original statement necklace was a vintage piece that belonged to a family member but no one seems to know its origins. Happy to report that all of the fish are in good vintage condition. It is obvious that they were handmade and hand painted with love. This was the first time that I got to deconstruct a vintage piece for new designs. It was big fun. #happycolor #fishjewelry”.

If these colors didn’t remind you that life should be filled with color and joy, I don’t know what else could! Be sure to share your brightest pieces in the comments below. Let’s spread some color love throughout this Etsy community!

Spring Palette: Colors Of Spring

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

It’s a time people around the globe hold their breath for – in anticipation of the fresh arrival -…… ahhhhh – wonderful beautiful Spring Time., new beginnings, babies being born.. it’s great! And the blooms everywhere are breath taking in central California where we live, the wildflowers and yards all colorful and inviting.

Springtime colors are fantastic – What springtime story do you have to tell, what glorious spring time palette items do you have to share? We want to hear and see them!

Nancy from jaysboutiquecrochet says

Spring is one of my favorite seasons because of its lovely color scheme! Most of my favorite (and best-selling!) products feature a spring color palette, such as these baby slouch boots. Because I knew these would be worn as the weather starts warming up, I made the shaft a bit shorter and the colors a bit brighter and lighter! No better baby shower or new mom gift, am I right?

Baby Spring Ankle Boots

Woolly Momo from WoollyMomo says

I absolutely love spring – so much so that I got married in spring and just had a spring baby! The colours around this time of year are so pretty from bold and vibrant colours, to more subtle and delicate hues – it’s all so inspiring for my knits! My absolute favourite tree comes into bloom this season too – the Cherry Blossom. It’s beautiful pink shades were the colour inspiration for this lovely and long, pure wool chunky knit scarf, which is handy because if your springtime is anything like ours here in the UK, you may still need some woolly warmers handy!

Pure Wool Scarf

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says

We are getting some rain – those lovely April showers that bring May flowers! This is one of my newer paper packs, and I love the colors and the polka dots. I think they would be good for making spring birthday cards, or Easter egg hunt scrapbooking pages.

Digital Paper Pack

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says

My favorite time of the year is spring. I love to see the colorful flowers popping out and watch the trees become their vibrant green again. Spring washes away the dark winter colors and brings a fresh new palette that one can’t help but fall in love with and feel a sense of revival. The spring weather also is something I enjoy if it doesn’t bring endless days of rain. It seems warmer than winter but cooler than summer. It’s like a paradise I can get lost in.

Beaded Wine Glass Charms

Karen Hafel from timetalentjewels says

Everyone just loves spring because of the beauty you see each day and yes I must agree it is a beautiful time of year, but it is also a destructive time too. What I enjoy about spring is all the beautiful colors I see each day around my home. This evening while I was out watering the azaleas I managed to enjoy the whiff that I got of the lily of the valley or could it of been the lilacs that were in bloom too? So many beautiful bushes are blooming earlier than expected this year, just like some of the peonies. All their colors are represented in my multi-strand necklace. It is made up of seed beads with a variety of small beads. This necklace can be worn draped or twisted and yes, let the compliments begin.

Our purple iris are blooming right now. We have purple on purple, white on purple, and some very dark almost black purple iris. Very beautiful and they smell wonderful! This necklace mimics the colors of the white on purple variety.

Barbara from MermaidsHatbox says

I love spring , when the garden season begin. The fresh colors of the tulips, narcissus and hyacinth.
A few years ago I created a vegetable garden. I can not wait to plant the vegetables which I have grown in the house from seeds into the garden.

PrzemilaK from CanisArtStudio says

Spring is the time when I can paint flowers. I paint flowers by nature, not from photographs and I’m waiting all year for it. Now so lush everything is blooming and daylight is best for painting. I use natural daylight so colors are so real and juicy. I make a lot of quick sketches on specially primed paper and also paint large flower arrangements on canvas. Flowers are so inspirational!

Suzanna from tabbiestone says

It’s Autumn all the way down here (Australia!), but it’s so nice to see the beautiful Spring colours and flowers you’re all sharing.
Przemila – how nice that you paint your flowers from nature – knowing that makes them even more lovely!
This turquoise glaze always reminds me of a fresh morning in Spring. It always brightens my day to wear such a happy colour.

Floral Fantasy

Contributor Post by Opal from ApronStringsOwlLady

Don’t you just love flowers! This is a lovely topic with all the gorgeous great smelling flowers in the world.

Along with the flowers we grow in our gardens, those that get presented to us in beautiful bouquets and the flowers we admire in someone else’s garden – we also have the plentiful array of life-like faux flowers, from silks to succulents.

I’d love to hear your stories about the wonderful Floral Fantasy creations you’ve encountered throughout the years – and of course, see the corresponding items in your shops.

Connie Lee from Bungalow42 says

 Who doesn’t love flowers? The allergy prone aside…

I tend to be drawn to the minimalist approach in flower arrangements. A great example of this minimalist approach is Ikebana. This Japanese art of flower arranging has inspired many florists to create fresh, natural creations with an emphasis on balance and imbalance, as well as graceful lines.

These earrings composed of cascading three petal flowers hand-knotted on walnut waxed linen are an Ikebana inspired design.

The flowers sway softly as you move creating a graceful floating effect, particularly fun against a backdrop of tresses.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says

 I love flowers! This set of three premade scrapbook pages is meant to be a bit abstract and ethereal, with the flowers almost blending in to the background. I added swirls and I think the effect is rather elegant, yet rustic – a bit messy even! So fun to create like this!

Lelia Valois from ValoisFelts says

 I love flowers, gardening and all that lovely nature has to offer. I’m always inspired by the colours and patterns of plants and flowers I see when I’m gardening or walking the dog.

My needle felted gnomes have all had green fingers and I love discovering their personalities and giving them flower stories too. This fella may look a little grumpy but a fresh bloom will always put a smile on his face.

Linda from LazyYVintage says

 I too love flowers. And, I also love florist ware. All those vases and planters that are full of flowers, and memories of the flowers that were once there. I’ve been truly blessed with a husband and sons who know how much I do love flowers. Now instead of sending me another vase from the florist shop (of which I have numerous colors, size, and styles of) they go out of their way to find me a unique vintage vase or planter. My personal collection of florist ware is growing with each birthday or Mothers’ Day.

This bowl is from FTD in 1979. Back in the day when unique, quality florist ware was used to create their beautiful bouquets.

 I love daisies!!

Daisies are so dainty and just flow in the wind with such grace. I picture myself standing in a field of them and thinking how nice it is to not have a care in the world.
I’d bet you have a fur child with the name daisy and she’d love this adorable dog collar.

This flower ring is handmade from clay and features an adjustable ring shank, so almost anyone can wear it!

Robyn Campbell from RobynFayeDesigns says

 I love wearing floral dresses. Last week I wore a black dress with large yellow sunflowers to a school presentation opening. I noticed everyone wearing muted grey and blue office clothes and felt a little bit out there! I kinda wished I’d worn my plain navy dress but still I would have accessorised with a colourful tote abundant with flowers just like this one!

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says:

Is there anyone who does not love flowers? No, l cannot think so!

My love for flowers began when l was a child, as my mother was used to have a lot of flowered plants and l always took care of them together with her.

I love almost all flowers, but my preferred are the orange ones, as you can clearly see in my shop.

Pam Maggio from PamsPawsJewelry says

Living in Massachusetts in the Northeast we have long, cold Winters, and I say every year how I cannot wait for Spring!

I love flowers, plants, and trees, planting them and watching them grow!

I plant indoors, outdoors, and also do experiments with pollinating them and attracting bees and butterflies with certain plants!

I am inspired by nature and enjoy adding flowers and items from nature into my item photos and some of my creations!

This handmade bracelet has lovely blue glass and lamp work beads with pretty flowers, birds, and is even accented with a Sterling Silver clasp with leaves!

Jerry and Opal from ApronStringsOwlLady says

Lovely items everyone! I love how floral and flowers and all things flowery are being represented in many forms. Thank you

In my owl shop I tend to add a flower to everything, or find a colorful floral fabric to match whatever mood I’m in, and for that particular item.

Since I am owl oriented, we choose this pretty owl floral plush for my bulletin boards.

Minimalist Style

Contributor Post from Sheila and Shannon of BeadyEyedBird

Leonardo da Vinci said:

“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.”

I define minimalist as a style that uses pared-down design elements. The artist strips everything down to its essential quality, to achieve simplicity.

We asked our CIJ Friends what they love and/or offer in the minimalist style; here’s what they sent in.

Donna Schindler from TreasuresFromTheLake said:

Finding a heart beach glass piece is rare.

So even though this beautiful brown piece is small, about dime sized,I decided to make a pendant from it

With as little wire as possible, I wrapped the piece so that the heart is the highlight.

Karen Hafel from timetalentjewels said:

When I begin to knit this purse it is very simple, just a plain minimal little purse with very little character. As I continue to build upon it with its flower and beading it grows into a sophisticated clutch handbag that is one-of-a-kind. People who have these purses always share their compliments with me that they receive.

Imagine – a red handbag with little pansies – how fun could that be! And yes, it has be made and sold. “Simplicity is the ultimate of the form of sophistication.”

Roses Workshop from RosesWorkshop said:

Many of the items in my shop are simple or minimalist, as that is my own favourite style. I have chosen to showcase this Harris tweed tea cosy.

Far from the bright colours and bold tartans of some tweeds, this cosy is made from two almost-plain weaves. A cosy made from just one of them might even look dull. By joining them with a straight horizontal line, together they bring out the best of both pieces.

I chose this vintage piece for it’s simple lines and understated character, discovering later that it is an early 20th century cemetery / funeral vase.

A nice way to remember …

Pam Maggio from PamsPawsJewelry says:

While I enjoy a lot of fancy, ornate, and unique items with pretty colors mostly, sometimes something simple with nice lines, unique simple shape, or something useful that will match or go with anything will touch my soul…..

This bracelet is pretty, simple, dainty, and yet it will go with most anything and white Pearls and black Onyx have a classic, timeless, and elegant appeal!

I hope you enjoyed these wonderful treasures and stories as I did!

Until next time,

Boho Style

Contributor post by  Sheila and Shannon of BeadyEyedBird

Gypsy, Boho, Bohemian, Ethnic, Hippie — whatever you choose to call it, it’s FUN! In modern usage, the term “Bohemian” is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. The original “Bohemians” were travelers or refugees from central Europe (hence, the French bohemian, for “gypsy”).

At the beginning of the Bohemian ‘movement’, it was said that gypsy girls themselves “…are sexy and delightful precisely because they do not give a hoot for fashion.”

When the style was first identified, it was the early 20th century. Fast forward to the 60’s and 70’s when major designers started to routinely promote the “peasant look” and sold a range of “uniquely eccentric clothes.” (How many of you still have some of those in the back of your closet, like me??)

Fast forward again to the late 1980’s, when variants of the short and fundamentally un-Bohemian rah-rah skirt (which originated with cheerleaders) were combined with leather or denim to create a look with some Bohemian or even gothic features. New names emerged, like ‘hippie chic’ and ‘boho-chic’. Similar styles were sometimes referred to as “bobo” or “ashcan chic” or “luxe grunge” — with leading proponents including actresses Mary Kate Olsen and Zooey Deschanel.

Whatever it’s called, and whatever the iteration or era, we L.O.V.E. it. What do you have or love that’s Boho? We asked our team members to share their stories and items with us, and here’s what we got —

Karen Hafel from timetalentjewels said:

Some people think that these little bags are Bohemian style bags and I share them with the teenagers as cute chic bags to carry for fun. Cool colorful stripes and colorful flower button makes it a fun bag for any teen! What is fun about this style of bag is it can be made into the school’s colors too, that is pretty chic too!

Marie-Antoinknit from 9ElizabethStreet said:

It was the spots that got my attention. They brought to mind lush jungle foliage, moss on rocks, lizards and that sense of long ago. Add the copper disk, and I started thinking about Amazon warrior-women and the tribal nomad style of the hippie commune days. Obviously, I have a fertile imagination…

Connie Lee from Bungalow42 said:

To my eye, the Bohemian look is earthy and layered, with flowing colorful fabrics and accessories made from natural materials. Our Tagua nut stacking bracelets are an earthy combination of tagua nut hollow triangle slices, wooden tubes and lightweight colorful resin rounds hand-knotted on silk thread.

While Bohemian fashion may cycle through fashion popularity over the years, true Bohemians don’t care about popularity or style – they care about expressing themselves. So wear what makes you feel good!

Boho or hippie brings to mind closeness to nature and the earth.

The earth toned beads accentuate that feeling. Add to that the brown cord and the large brown beach glass, it’s a statement piece that screams I love nature.
