Gifts For Makers

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

When thinking up gifts for yourself or another “Maker” friend, do you often want something to help you in your crafting? I know I do! A good quarter of my “list” are tools,supplies or gift cards to craft stores.

Here at #EtsyCIJ we want to know what do you have in your shop that a “Maker” would want as a gift?

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit says never let a good idea get away when you have a memo on hand! Include a personalized pen, pencil, or letter opener with your memo holder to give your creative friends a designated place to find a pen and take notes when they need to. We specialize in functional artwork which is useful and appreciated, but shop for your gift giving occasions, personalized and made to order gifts take time! Our personalized memo holder is the perfect gift for artists and makers alike and you can make your gift giving opportunity into a personalized gift giving experience by including any text using any font we have available in our selection. Shipping direct to your recipient, we also offer gift wrap and gift cards for the professional gift giving touch.

1. What is name of your shop and what is unique about your shop?

CaffeinatedPapercuts, where everything is created by my two hands. If it involves paper, it’s probably in the shop!

2. Where do you live and how does where you live influence your creativity?

I live in Upstate New York where we just moved to a small village (yes, they still exist!). Kids playing outside, lots of trees and flowers, sun streaming in through all the windows…I’m surrounded by nature.

3. What is it about having your own business that you love?

Well, obviously there’s the whole being my own boss thing, but I love creating. So seeing someone pick up one of my pieces and have just the reaction I was going for is priceless.

4 What is your greatest business achievement?

For me, it was finally having the guts to just go for it and open up shop. Now I sell online, at craft shows, and some of my work will now be available at a shop in New Mexico. It’s crazy and wonderful.

5. How would you like to see your business evolve?

I would love to have more repeat customers and a more structured release schedule. The holidays should be awesome this year as I started on the new line of cards last January!

6. What are your social media sites?
