Giveaway Closed - Adventures on Etsy with 4073

Posted by [email protected] on June 18, 2012 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (9)

Congratulations to Jessica you are the winner of an amazing piece of art from 4073 !!!!!


Lets Meet 4073

Limited Edition Print on Canvas, Yellow Letter D


Name of Shop – 4073

 

Category of items you sell? - Drawings/Prints and Bags [I just started selling bags, which is a collaboration with my sister: http/blackholequilts.blogspot.com/

1. How long have you had your shop? I just opened my shop May 31st 2012.

2. What inspired you to start your shop? I decided to open my shop because for awhile now I have been curious how to show my work. I decided that Etsy is a good place to start after talking to a friend who has a Shop called: zaumstore.etsy.com. It has proven to be worthwhile, after being contacted to show my work with the RAW artist organization. I have a show July 11th: http/www.rawartists.org/dollyhaardt.

3. Who or what inspires you to create? Technology. For example, a new piece of software or most recently, the Sensu Brush. It's an incredible stylus that is actually a paint brush and really is like no other tool that I used.

4. What has been your biggest accomplishment as a shop owner / artist? So far my biggest accomplishment is being in the RAW show July 11th. Now I just need donations to support my work It's easy and only $10 for a ticket, even if someone can't make it to the show, they can support my work by clicking here, select "Buy Tickets" and picking my name from the drop down list. http/www.rawartists.org/raleigh/mixology

5. What has been the hardest part about starting a business? Time. There just does not seem to be enough time to do everything that I'd like to accomplish. Not to mention marketing my work. It is really hard to know what I can expect from Etsy, Facebook and the rest of the online world to get physical work out to those that are interested.

6. What would be your biggest tip to a brand new shop owner / artist on etsy? I wish I had a tip, but being a new Shop owner myself, I'd say the Etsy community & teams has brought me the most insight.

7. Where can we find Your shop? You can find my shop at 4073.etsy.com and my facebook page is: facebook.com/Studio4073


My Shop Review

ea0a7428.jpg image by revampedesigns

I had the extraordinary pleasure of Working with Dolly Haardt, owner of 4073 Studios. She was amazing to work with and has the neatest art shop I have ever come across. Her art is printed art !! She prints her art onto all kinds of different things. She prints onto paper, canvas, metal and i even saw a travel bag she printed her art work onto ! I was so happy to review the art work you see pictured above. Its been printed on an 8.5x11 art paper, its called Red Sea Water Tunnel. I LOVE it I Framed it in a ReVamped Designs Plum Frame and I think it makes a great addition to my craft room !!

Her art came in a protected envelope with cardboard to keep from getting bent or damaged during shipping. Once opened it was nicely protected in this plastic art protector sleeve. And has a cute little sticker with 4073's info on it .

My Shop Review

I had a lot of fun working on this giveaway with Red Windmill Designs, Rachel the owner is very talented and has the most amazing Etsy shop. She has a Huge variety of hand crochet items, baby items, accessories, slippers, face scrubbies, and i was able to review her newest item in her shop her Happy Hyperbolic Dishcloths.

 

These dishcloths are amazing !! I have never seen or used a round dishcloth before. I never really thought about the difference the shape might make. These dish cloths are the perfect size and shape. The round design really cleans and fits into bowls and cups so much better than a traditional square shape dish cloth. They have a very long lasting durability, i have been using them for about two weeks and LOVE them !!

Lets Meet BlondiesCreations

turqneck.jpg image by revampedesigns

"I come from a long line of jewelry collectors We believe you can never have too much. I studied Anthropology and Geology in college and have been a rock hound ever since. I even get my husband out into the hot sun of Oregon's eastern high desert to dig for materials to use in my jewelry making ( I think he's a keeper). I like tribal jewelery and clothes that inspire my work . I find inspiration all around me in every day life as well as the books that let me study the past. I'd like you to spend a little time with me and my creations and hopefully you will find one you love enough to take home."

-Diane

BlondiesCreations


My Shop Review

I am so Glad BlondiesCreations wanted to be a part of my adventures on Etsy ! I got to review the most amazing Birthstone Necklace, before she even introduced it into her shop. How exciting that I get to help her debut her new line of necklaces !!! 

This Birthstone necklace measures about 14" long, is made of sliver, but Diane can make the necklaces with most any kind of chain you would like ( gold, silver etc.) She can do any Birthstone month, my Birthday was just this weekend so I have my necklace in Pearl since its my Birthstone. She can even do a mothers Birthstone necklace that would include all your children's Birthstones, how fun !! She did a GREAT job on this necklace, it has one large Pink pearl at the top of the tube that houses the rest of the smaller pink pearls. Diane was so fun to work with, my order was very easy to place and arrived very promptly, in a very cute little silver jewelry box, this would make a great Birthday gift, or a mothers day gift if you give the mothers birthstones. 

BlondiesCreations has so many really nice pieces of jewelry in her shop. She can custom make items as well. You must keep checking her shop she posts many new things regularly. Stop by and check out her new creations often ! She has a large variety of necklaces and Bracelets in her cute little shop !!

Giveaway Closed--Adventures on Etsy with Pineapple's Playhouse

Posted by [email protected] on April 30, 2012 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (7)

CONGRAGULATIONS to Charissa Hakes

the lucky winner of a super cute Octopus By Pineapple's Playhouse !


Lets Meet Pineapple's Playhouse

Photobucket

 

Name of Shop – Pineapple's Playhouse, I have a cat that looks like she should be called Oreo, so naturally she is named Pineapple. She is one of the most affectionate, dog-like cats ever, so I figured she needed something named after her. She's my banner picture :D

 

Category of items you sell? - Crochet, Crafty name signs

 

1. How long have you had your shop?

My shop has been opened since January of this year.

 

2. What inspired you to start your shop?

I discovered etsy about a year ago and loved looking at all the handmade crafts, there is really so much natural talent all across the globe! I started custom ordering some mustachio dinosaurs (albinodinodesigns) for friends and realized that I could make people smile too!

 

3. Who or what inspires you to create?

I've always been crafty, but I really had a great inspiration when I started dating my boyfriend. We spent out first summer in two different towns and I loved making cards to send to him! Now that we live together I like to craft for the challenge, to see the next level of creativity I could reach. I taught myself to crochet in the winter of 2011 and so far I've master the octopus. . . I don't know what it is, but I am compelled to create octopuses! Soon I'm going to try and make a funny lion or a Detroit Tiger :)

 

4. What has been your biggest accomplishment as a shop owner / artist?

My biggest accomplishment as a shop owner was starting my shop! I never thought I'd have a good outlet for my crafts. And friends can really only take so many crocheted octopuses :P As an artist my biggest accomplishment was making a poster-sized, ocean themed, birthday card! I used blue cellophane as a layer, drew things I never thought I could, and put it all together! I was so proud when I finished it! (See picture)

 

5. What has been the hardest part about starting a business?

The hardest part for me is trying to balance work and craft-time. I have a temporary full-time job while I'm trying to look for a permanent job that uses my degree. Occasionally at the end of the day I just don't have the energy to craft. Sometimes I need to apply for job but use crafting to procrastinate and other times I'll want to look for jobs but have an order that I need to get done. It can be exhausting.

 

6. What would be your biggest tip to a brand new shop owner / artist on etsy?

My best tip for a new shop owner is to make sure you have plenty of items! You'll reach more people and more people will see your work when you display lots of items! You also want to make sure you have back-up stock! I basically never have back-ups, so when someone orders something I start to make it. I secretly have all made to order items :] Also, don't ever let your art become a chore! As soon as you start to dread making something it will never look as good as it could. Take a break and clear your mind, crafting is fun!

 

7. Where can we find Your shop?

You can find my shop on etsy:http://www.etsy.com/shop/kymeki?ref=si_shop

Or you can find my shop on facebook: www.facebook.com/PineapplesPlayhouse

 

 


My Shop Review


Photobucket

 

I was fortunate enough to review a super cute AND adorable Detroit Red Wings Crocheted Octopus. My Husband is a HUGE sports fan and loves the Red Wings so I was so excited when Pineapple's Playhouse let me review this item for our new arrival due in August ! Now I just love handmade items and fell in love with it when i got it. Kyle the owner of Pineapple's Playhouse was exceptionally kind and it was very easy to place my order. It arrived very promptly and in the cutest handmade packaging which i adore ! 

Photobucket


Pineapple's Playhouse has a variety of items and can custom make items too. Her most popular items are her octopus. You must keep checking her shop as she posts many new creations to her shop ! She even had the neatest sale I have ever seen on Etsy. She was discounting the price of the Red Wings Octopus when the Wings were in the playoffs, each game they won she would discount the item more!! Check out her shop and see if she has a handmade animal in your favorite Team ! Even if you dont have kids but your pets are your kids, Kyle also makes really cute Jungle Cat Toys, and could probably make something your your cute lil pooch too ! Again she does take custom orders, the sky is the limit see what she can make for you !!
