Features of the week 11/8/09

In the past year in order to help promote my Etsy Shops I have joined a few Etsy Teams.
Unique Women in Business( UWIB), Quiltsy, and The Carried Away Bag Team (CABT). Through these teams I have met some very interesting and creative artist/crafters and of course what unites us all is that we love to create. I discovered that many have more than one interest in their creations. So I have decided over the next few weeks to feature a few of the artist and their shops. Each week I will try and features at least 2 and give you an insight into what they sell and why t
hey have chosen to have more than one shop.

The owner of the first shop is Gail. Gail owns and Gail says that when she first opened her shop on Etsy in Jan.2009 she did so because she mostly wanted to sell some excess inventory of quilts. But she also made and sold many things over the years and in trying to put them in one shop it became a jumble so she started the second shop.

From QuiltSew Pieceful shop I choose to feature one of Gail's beautiful quilts. It is an applique medallion style quilt-Primrose Lane and from her QuiltSewCover shop I have chosen a checkbook cover.

My second feature artist is Jamie. Jamie owns and destinationhandmade.etsy. Jamie I would say is very much like myself, not only does she sew, but she also likes to design and make her own jewelry. For her features I have choosen
a animal print I-Phone Protector from her destinationhandmade shop and from
the jmjcreations a gorgeous Butterfly Pin. In her description she state that she wanted to "attempt to capture the delicate beauty of God's amazing creation". I believe she did.

I had to get myself in somewhere so I chose my shops. My two shops are creationsbynoramarie.etsy. and I chose to have two shops because I felt that sense
I was creating very different categories of designs that in order to be taken seriously in each shop I need to separate them. By doing so it tells the customer that I am experience in each craft.
For my features I have picked my newest Christmas Table Topper from my creationsbynoramarie and from designbynoramarie I have chosen my butterfly

Follow me over the next few weeks as I feature more of
these wonder desiners/artist.
