"Friday Features"

It's Friday so that means "Features Time!" I am very happy to bring you another talented member of our Etsy community.

This week it is a wonderful Artist,Vanessa from;

She has kindly answered some questions for us :)

Tell us a little about how you got to where you are creatively.

I come from a long line of creative people and I just think it is in my genes. My talented tin artist dad encouraged me to express myself and I was never forced to color inside of the lines. I spent many summers with my grandmother, who taught me how to make something fabulous and new out of something ordinary and old.

Tell us a little about your creative process.

For me, my creativity comes in waves. Once an idea pops in my head I feel like I have to create it at that moment and I have been known to pull all nighters in order to finish a project.

What do you love about creating?

Creating is definitely therapeutic for me and I appreciate having an outlet after a stressful day.

What is your favourite item in your Etsy store right now?

Right now, I love my felt little birdie cards. I just think they are so cute and perfect for any occasion.

Why Etsy?

Before I was a seller I was a shopper on Etsy and I just loved it!

What do you love about Etsy?

I love the people! The handmade community is absolutely amazing and I have met some fabulous artisans who have been so helpful to me.

What do you do in your spare time?

I love hanging with my husband and our 2 furbabies in my spare time. Other than that, I enjoy photography, writing, reading, traveling and working out.

Tell us 4 things about yourself that would let us peek into your world or that you think define you.

I don’t think I could quickly list 4 things that define me so I will give you 4 random facts instead:
1. I’m a family counselor by day and crafter by night.
2. I love pickles, like looooove them lol!
3. I hope to publish a book someday.
4. My favorite ice cream flavor is coffee.

If you could, what would be your dream life?

I think it would be so much fun to be a boutique owner!
