Contributor Post by Sheila and Shannon from BeadyEyedBird 

‘food·ie
ˈfo͞odē/
noun
a person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet.
synonyms: gourmet, epicure, gastronome, gourmand
“his father was a foodie who worked for an international magazine”

We are definitely foodies! How about you? Our teamies told us about their love for all things gourmet. Tell us about your favorite foodie things!

For many years I am a vegeterian. Actually I could be a vegan also because my favorite food is fruits. I love the colors and scents of fruits, there are so many different shapes! It’s so inspiring! I also like to paint fruit too. One of my favorite topics is “wild apples”. Many years ago in my neighborhood, there was a custom of planting an apple tree by the road. When I go for a walk with my dogs I can meet such a wild tree and collect apples that are no longer available in any store. I paint small still life with these apples. It’s a little romantic and it’s a great decorating the kitchen or the dining room, so this series of my oil paintings are selling fast. Occasionally they are also available in my shop. Of course I also paint other fruits and you can order oil painting with your favorite fruits or vegetables.

Oh boy do I LOVE to Cook!!! Experimenting by pairing specific foods is a great challenge, but a really fun project for me too. The best part is eating it!

I carry a few really fun food related ceramic beads in my shop like these little peanuts that have a Chinese saying on them “good luck always”. Peanuts carry a special meaning in the Chinese Culture of flourish and growth. Which is a perfect symbol for this spring summer season.

I love the sensory overload of village markets. The hustle and bustle and conversation of the animated sellers and shoppers, the smells and colors of the produce and meats and fish. I offer travel photos in my photography shop: Stock Lane Photography, and this one brings back so many memories of visits to this large indoor market. Capture your wanderlust!

My husband and I love to cook and try mom n’ pop restaurants. We enjoy trying new recipes or creating our own. He got me several celebrity chef cookbooks for christmas, so we have been trying a new recipe each week. Recently, my husband started a blog to share our recipes with step by step pictures. He gets so excited writing a blog, sharing all his ideas and tips.

We use several kitchen gadgets and this huge measuring cup is great to use.

Jim and I love food. Restaurants, menus, cooking shows, and trying new recipes. We try out new places, and are regulars at a few local family own restaurants. I love to cook and bake, so being a foodie is real thing for us. When my boys were little they loved to watch the Frugal Gourmet. I have a set of these Pyrex deep dish pie pans and absolutely love them. They make great lemon meringue pies.

Patty Riley from PupcakesBowWowtique said:

I really enjoy baking. When my kids were little I used to bake and decorate every birthday cake, or make cupcakes/cookies for school functions. Now the kids are grown and gone, so I have started making treats for our three dogs.

I consider this bandana to be a symbol of my passion for baking.

#CIJPopUpMarket #2 Shop – Patty from PupcakesBowWowtique

PupcakesBowWowtique

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

My shop is Pupcakes BowWowtique (also soon opening Pupcakes Barkery).  I find inspiration through Pinterest, Youtube, and suggestions by friends and family.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

My shop has been open just under a year, but it has evolved in that time with an expansion of products from dog collars and bandanas to the addition of toys, treats, and even some human products. With this expansion I will soon be starting a second shop (Pupcakes Barkery) and moving my dog treats there. I am working on my marketing through social media and trying to improve my product photos, so there will always be evolution.

3. What do you love most about your work?

I love working from home and spending time with my three dogs. I also like working for myself and being able to design and create items that others enjoy.

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

I don’t listen to music much when I’m working. I usually have the TV on in the background. When I do listen to music it’s country. Some of my favorites are Trace Adkins, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, and Florida Georgia Line.

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

I’m currently reading “A Dog’s Journey” which is the sequel to “A Dog’s Purpose”, and “Ricochet: Riding a Wave of Hope with the Dog Who Inspires Millions” . I don’t really have a favorite place to read, so I’ll just say anywhere quiet and comfortable. I generally only read when I’m studying, or when I find a book that really interests me.

6. What are your social media sites?

Christmas Wish List – #CIJParty 2017

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Remember when we were young and we made up a list of all we wanted for Christmas? As we’ve gotten older, we still have at least a few items that are on the top of our list (so to speak).

For the #CIJParty tell us what is on your Wish List. You can tell us why you want these items and anything else relevant.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says when my youngest daughter was growing up, there was always one thing mentioned in her letters to Santa: a dog. I kid you not, I’ve gone back and read them and every letter mentions a dog or has a picture of one. Well now we finally have our dog and everybody’s fine. Our GSD likes to sleep on a cold floor, so dog blankets and pillows are just tossed aside. We are not a family that dresses up our dog and he certainly doesn’t need it in the Upstate NY winters – he loves the snow. But he does have a passion for chewing up everything he can find, so a few dog chew toys would be welcome please Santa. I have seen a few of these here on Etsy. . .

Children’s printable decor

Jennie from FromBasementToArt said a trip to Montana is what would thrill me this Christmas. I spent a lot of time there during a five-year relationship years ago. It has been on my bucket list since 2000!

Mini Daniel Boone playing cards

Donna from TreasuresFromTheLake states I would love a trip to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for Christmas. Growing up, I spend many Christmas’ there. Then when I had a family of my own, my parents, me, husband and daughter would go there too. This was a family tradition until my dad passed away and I would love to go back there.

Flamingo bookmark

Gillian from Gillisflowers discusses that my daughter has ME, severe endometriosis and is now being tested for a bladder problem. My wish would be for her to get the treatment she needs to be able to fully enjoy life.

Carol from SilverTrove says recently I’ve been hearing many stories of people around the world meeting Jesus. Muslims, Jews, Buddhist and even Satanists are converting to Christianity. My Christmas wish is for more of God’s children to come closer to him through Jesus Christ, who is, after all, the reason we celebrate Christmas!
I’m praying for your daughter’s complete healing, Gilliam Haqqani.

Patty from PupcakesBowWowtique said I too have a GSD and I can say chew toys have saved us a lot on furniture, etc. I hope Santa comes through for your pup!
Gillian,
I hope your Christmas wish happens for your daughter. My thoughts are with you both!

I would like to spend Christmas in a mountain cabin. A few days of real winter weather for the holidays would be a welcome change from the Florida heat.

Alicia from AliciasFindings states that I would love for all my team mates to receive their “Christmas Wish” and for my rheumatoid arthritis(and other problems) to reach a point where all is fairly stable and all problems mainly controlled.

Dark blue dotted pattern bracelet and earring set

Cristal from DesignsbyCristal says my Christmas wish is to have a special Christmas with my family in New York just so that we can see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree and just enjoy some of New York’s sights.

I LOVE Christmas and don’t even have to see not one present!!! Since our 2 children have started their journey in college and in just 1 year our oldest is graduating college and will be moving out of the state so this would especially be a time I’d value so much.

Here is hoping all of the #EtsyCIJ teamies receive many wonderful Christmas gifts this year!

For this years #EtsyCIJ event we want to know what this team means to you.
We know this team has meant a lot to some,has been a stepping stone to others and their main focus to a few.

What do you think of when this team comes to mind? What does this team mean to you?

Patty from PupcakesBowWowtique says to me this team means a chance. Since I started on Etsy a year ago I have had a few sales trickle in. In joining this team I am hoping that my shop will have a chance to grow. I also see this as an opportunity to get to know other team members and help each other along the way as we are a team after all.
