Playing With Feathers

Since I came from Cuba in 2005 I've been amazed by the variety and quantity of supplies of all kinds to stimulate creativity. As I am a person who enjoys creating new pieces almost every day, shopping at one of these craft stores is like a paradise to me. Like a kid in a toy store! I have to admit that the feathers are one of my favorite materials for my creations and peacock feathers are the number one for me. Here are some of my latest special creations for weddings and formal events and why not? To make those boring shoes more fun and wear them on any occasion that you need. I assure you it will be reason to talk!

Featured Artist From Etsy "monkeyminddesign09"

1. Name and a little background information about you and what do you sell in your shop.
My name is Anita Ashfield-Salter.
I have been a graphic designer for 13 years in the advertising agency world. I recently left my job to pursue my new venture. It was time to get back to my roots. I love design, paper and making things with my hands. It's been two months and I love it! I hope to create designs that are positive, inspiring and fun.
2. When and how did you get started in your craft?
At an early age art was my passion. It was very clear the path I was supposed to take. I also graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. Of course, years of experience in print give me an advantage. And as I mentioned, I love paper and printing!
3. Could you explain a little how is your creative process?
I love to window shop and look at installations for inspiration. I take in color combinations and styles. Anthropologie is a perfect place to lose yourself visually. Then an idea pops up and I get to work. But I usually end up with something totally different than what I started with. And I am my own hardest critic and hardest client to please.

4. How long have you been selling your craft?
I have only been selling for two months. And trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can. I also started selling my cards and calendars at the same time at a boutique gift shop in my neighborhood.

5. Do you have a favorite item from your store and why?
More Than Words Calendar - It was a major decision to leave my job and pursue happiness and a dream. I needed encouragement and inspiration. I spent many hours trying to find the right quotes with courage and change in mind. When I am having self doubt... I read the quotes. I am proud of myself and hope to encourage others to pursue their dreams.
6. What do you want to achive from Etsy?
Happiness doing what I love... and one day the pay day to go with it. I give everything I do 120% and do it with heart and soul. I hope it shows in my work.

7. Where else can we find you?

Featured Artist From Etsy "LadyHudd"

I am a stay at home mother of two beautiful girls that are 1 and 2 years old. I have a wonderful husband that loves me and supports my new business. I sell crocheted and hand sewin items for the majority and other crafts. 

My sister makes all the bows that are in my shop. I've been sewing and crocheting since I was about 10 years old. I was surrounded by several forms of crafts through my family grandmothers, mother, and even my grandfather who makes wooden items that I hope to have in my shop soon. My entire family supports me and I hope that Etsy will eventually help support my family one day.
Mostly I get my ideas from books and patterns that I might see online or even at a craft store or magazine. Then once I get an idea I try to make it my own whether its just changing the color or changing it completely. I love making items for my friends and family as gifts so I get a lot of ideas from them as well.
I dont really have a favorite item because I make what I love and what I would hope people like me love too. I use what I sale and make things for me just as much as I do on Etsy.
I have a blog and my facebook will be coming soon. I also have a shop on I am a very new shop I've only been open since Jan 4th but I am a former Etsian from about a year ago. I took some time off to have a baby and now I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things and a new start with a new store. I've got lots of stuff coming and would be a great shop to follow

How To Up-cycling And Old Dress

Many times we have a piece of clothing that we really like or has some sentimental value and we store it for years. Sometimes we have the idea to make it into something more modern to use the material. Well something similar happened with this dress. It is the result of an order that a customer gave me several days ago. She wanted a dress with the same design and almost the same color as one that Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing in the filming of the new movie. After several emails we decided the best option she had was buying  a dress that was all pleated and that she may have more change to find in a thrift or vintage stores. Said and done, the dress she found it here.When I received the dress my first reaction was that it would be a challenge make it what she wanted, but here's the result.
So, if you have a similar situation just send me a message, maybe I can make your dream come true!
