My quilts are not like traditional t-shirt quilts made by piecing the same size blocks together in rows. I custom cut each shirt in multiple sizes and piece my quilts like a puzzle. I take pride in delivering the best quilt possible - something my customers can be proud to show to friends, family and co-workers and eager to use. You can find details on my website, and check me out on Facebook as well.
Working with glass was a hobby for years, and when we moved for my fiancé's work, I found myself jobless and friendless in a strange new place. I used my free time to start an Etsy store and practice my craft, and was so surprised when I had my first sale!
I strive to keep my glass business zero-waste, melting even the tiniest of scraps into cute stud earrings, and reusing shipping materials. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my art with others, and hope each piece brings its new owner the joy I felt while creating it! You can find my designs in my Etsy store, Boulder Design.
online shop and I also sell my soap at a few local holiday craft fairs each year.
I make soap from vegetable oils, like olive, palm, coconut and castor. My Oh Baby! line of soaps are 95% olive oil with goat milk. It is a super-gentle soap that's perfect for babies or for problem skin. My regular line of soaps are made with a balanced blend of veggie oils. They are super bubbly with thick, luxurious lather. You'll never go back to commercially made bars or body wash once you have tried handmade soap!

September Lane. I started my shop as a way to take my mind off food and weight loss, no joke. I found that by keeping myself busy and interested in other things I’ve had an easier time staying focused on a healthy lifestyle. It has worked so far because I have lost 35 pounds with 25 more to go! I am trying to set a good example for my five boys by showing them that being healthy and productive is a better life.
September Lane is a shop that is all about adding just the right touch to your home, embellishing a gift for a special friend, and creating a keepsake that you will enjoy for years to come. Everything from September Lane is lovingly handmade and created for your delight. I have items such as personalized clay eggs in a nest, fun and useful magnets, unique name place holders, decorative clay balls, and personal gift tags. I hope you find something you like!
As a result of unforeseen circumstances, my self employment had to come to a close in May of 2012 and at the same time I found myself in need of major surgery.
With a recovery time of 6+ weeks, I found myself inactive for the first time in years. Thankfully, I had my personal blog to keep me connected to the things and people I cared about, but I also realized that my recovery time was precious; I didn't want to squander it.
My convalescence, at first seen as a hindrance, ended up leading me back to my original love: art. Once again, the six year old within me began working fast and furious, and my shop on Etsy, Ellen Brenneman Studios, was born.
My name is Jessica and I'm a ceramic artist, graphic designer, and love to experiment with everything in between. I have a love of printing and have a new Etsy shop that I'd like to share with everyone.
I've started with single color black ink prints on a warm, earthy brown card stock. Please come have a look at my hand-carved, hand-printed stationary and be aware that I will be uploading new designs weekly, so check back often!
You can find my designs at Paper Planes & Mud Pies on Etsy.
Over the years, thankfully I've gotten much better at my craft! Once I reached high school, friends and family always assumed I would bring the cake when inviting me to showers, birthday parties, etc. And after a while word got out, and about two years ago I decided to set up a website, post some photos, and get busy! Boy did I ever get busy! I love what I do, and learning new techniques and tricks. I wouldn't trade this for anything in the world. You can find me on my website, and also on Facebook.
My name is Jennifer and I am a 31 year old with a not-so-exciting job that allows me to work from home full time. Since most days I don't dress up and put on a full face of make-up I've found that nail polish is an easy low maintenance way to still feel fun and dressed up. I started looking for some super chunky glitter nail polish and after being super disappointed at what I found in the stores, I decided to learn to make my own.
After lots of trial and error I finally came up with the perfect blend of base and found just the right kind of glitter. People started taking notice and asking if I would be willing to sell them the polish and make them their own custom mixture. From there Viva La Glitter was born. Each bottle is jam packed with an assortment of glitter in different shapes, sizes and colors. Custom polishes upon request. Remember: You can never have too much glitter!! I'm hoping that I can bring that same joy to everyone else who wears my polishes.
Hello, everyone. My name is Angelina and I am the owner of Race Junkie Tutus. I started running about a year ago and it changed my life forever. I was at a low point in my life in regards to my weight and decided to do something about it. I started running. I instantly loved how strong I felt and the way running was transforming my body and washing away all my stress. After a few weeks of running and feeling good about the results, I decided that I needed to challenge myself even further. I signed up for my first 5K Run. I remembering looking around and seeing all the runners. Most were dressed in your basic black and white gear. But the ones who stood out the most, and seemed to have the best energy about them, were the ones with festive costumes and colorful running apparel. Well I was dressed in the basic black and white and blended in with everyone else. When I looked at all the photos after the event, I had trouble finding myself anywhere. However, the runners I saw crossing the finish lines in costumes, hats, and colorful knee high socks, not only looked really happy, but they were easy to spot!
After that I decided to design my own Custom Made Tutus and run my next few races in them. I began to instantly get noticed and stood out from the hordes of people dressed in black and white. I guess you can say that’s when a light bulb came on and I decided to make Tutu's for more runners like me... Race Junkies! I went home and made some samples of my best Tutu designs and opened a home based Etsy shop. The response has been great. I really enjoy working with my customers and helping them design their dream Race Tutu. I can honestly say one my greatest joys is being able to read the excitement from my customers once they open the box and post pictures and compliments via my Facebook page. I remember being a kid and my parents saying to me that 'The real gift at Christmas was watching me open my gifts”. It made zero sense to me then, but I get it now. And besides, shouldn’t every runner look and feel as good as they could when they cross the finish line? Yes, they should.
