I live in California with my husband and 3 children. We have emigrated from Poland almost 20 years ago, looking for a better life for our family, after living under communist regime for many years. I have stayed home with kids for many years, and over time- I have change my profession – I learned how to make computer maps and it is my full time job now.

I have opened my Etsy shop in April 2011. I make beautiful framed angels, that are unique, simple but elegant, romantic, and that can be personalized for many occasions. When a child is born –it is like an angel appearing in your life – what a better gift than an angel for a boy or a girl (in many different colors) with child’s name on the gift. When you want to thank your mom for being your angel – an angel with a “Thank you” note is a perfect gift.

Recently I have added a beautiful print to my collection "LOVE has many languages". It is a nice way to say "I love" for that special person in your life.

I like to travel – I and my family have been in most USA states, in many European countries, and recently visited Japan. When I am home - I love to read, watch good movies. I love to go to the beach. I like to spend time with young adults –my kids and their friends – I enjoyed their company, their spirit, interests, and discussions with them. I value time spending with good friends and good wine. I also love to cook and bake. Every year I walk in Huntington Beach marathon.
I am a night person. So in the evening, usually when I do not have to work the next day, I go to my StudioA (A stands for Anna) - which is at my beautiful home in California. I turn on some good music, I take out my papers, frames, and my imagination. I would never create something that I personally do not like. I love black and white colors, but I like to add accent of other colors – this is why my store name is “mostly black and white"
I plan to add some photos to my store from our many family trips.

Here is my website (created by my son):
I also invite you to my studioA on Fickr:

Bling N Things by Penny

Bling N Things by Penny

Enjoy a visit to Penny's Etsy shop where you will find creative one of a kind treasures!

by Penny

I am married, live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my two Miniature Pinschers and an Amazon Parrot. Luckily my husband doesn't mind living with a creative woman...he never knows what will be changed or added when he comes home!

I can remember being creative all my life. Both of my grandmothers and my mother are all really creative women so it was natural that I would follow in their paths. I learned to crochet at age 11 from my Nonna and everything else from my mom and Grandmother. My Mom and I still go to numerous craft events and classes when we can, we have a blast!

I always had a crafting class weather it was wood working, metal shop, arts and crafts or sewing all throughout my school years. I started selling on Etsy after my shoulder therapist said that beading would be good therapy for my carpal tunnel. So after accumulating numerous earrings and bracelets Bling N Things by Penny was started. A girl can only wear so much jewelry, lol.

I have since expanded to selling my Scrapbooks, Journals, Jewelry Boxes as well as my Jewelry. I never know what I'll be in the mood to create and I love the idea that I can share my items with people all over the world. When I had my first sale I was so excited as I am with every sale there after and the first international sale I was scared to death that it wouldn't make it there, lol.

Since then I have become a leader on the wonderful STAT (Self Taught Artists Treasury) Team where I have made friends with some really talented people who are also so very supportive!

Oh My Clumsy Heart

Meet Sophie and be sure to visit her handmade Etsy shop
Oh My Clumsy Heart
Oh My Clumsy Heart is a modern jewellery line composed of minimal pieces; ranging from modern designs that borrow from classic styles, to versatile and playful geometric shapes. The shop's collections form and evolve over time yet always remain well made, affordable and designed with everyday wear in mind.

 Photograph credits to Jack Spicer Adams jackspiceradams.com

My name is Sophie Davies, I live in Kent and I make minimal, modern jewellery.

I have a shop on Etsy which has been open since 2010 and I have had a Bigcartel store for the last few months. I have been making jewellery for the last eighteen months or so. I hardly wear jewellery because I like things to be super minimal, rarely is there anything that appeals to me; tiny, delicate pieces, extremely lightweight and lovely to look at, which is what I hope to create.

Advice for new designer-makers:
Make mistakes and learn from them.
Be nice to people.
Work hard.

TJBdesigns Cross Stitch Knitting Crochet Needlepoint Accessories

Featured Etsy Shop  TJBdesigns   
Visit TJBdesigns for unique handmade gift ideas.
"I love stitching and teaching stitching. Counted thread needlework appeals to my logical mind and soothes my soul. Cross stitch, hardanger, drawn thread, and especially band samplers. I knit when I'm not stitching."
by TJBdesigns

My passion is counted thread needlework. Most people think of cross stitch when I say that and that is how it all started for me almost 40 years ago. You can see some of my favorite pieces here. www.flickr.com/photos/tjbdesigns/sets/72157623357380512/ Stitching is my therapy, but I love to knit too. I teach a stitching group at my local needlework shop.

Several years ago I decided to make scissor fobs for the ladies in my group. So I picked up some beads and other supplies and it became an obsession. I needed about eight gifts, but by the time I was done I had over two dozen! So I started selling them to friends. The owner of our local needlework shop asked me to make some stitch markers. Then I noticed some of my stitch group had trouble keeping their place in their projects. So I started making counting pins. And so it goes…

I firmly believe every needleworker should have pretty tools. So I make pretty and practical beaded scissor fobs, sewing stilettos, counting pins for needlepoint and cross stitch, stitch markers for knitting and crochet, needle threaders and needlecases. I make eyeglass leashes for those of us who still want to stitch, but need a little visual help. And when you’re tired of stitching and knitting, I make bookmarks to keep your spot in that trashy novel.
