When I opened the package from Santa's Gift Shoppe it had a very yummy surprise attached. Along with the tile she sent a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Clusters. OK.....thinking about Christmas yet?
I also love, love , love the adorable aprons she carries in her shop. I have one pictured below but you need to take a good look in her store.
Let's learn more about this fun shop:
When did you open your Etsy Shop? I joined in Feb.2010 but did not open for business until the end of April 2010.
Can you tell me a little about you & your shop? I am a very blessed woman. I have the best supportive husband, & 5 wonderful grown children. I'm passionate about life, people, past, present & future. I love anything Christmas that can put that spirit into your heart all year long. (I start watching Christmas movies in July!) I love to bake anything & make homemade jams (about 300 a yr & 15 different blends) I've won 1st place in the Fair for most all of them. I love doing Family History & finding the roots that make us who we are.
My Etsy Shop is a reflection of the love I have for my favorite things in life...Beautiful Italian Stones with heart warming messages, fun & sassy aprons to make baking even more fun (especially the matching mommy/daughter ones) Jewelry to us feel beautiful, Home decor items to beautify our homes to become a place of warmth & refuse from the world.
What inspires you? The whole world inspires me but being that my background was in Fashion/Interior Design..I would have to say Colors really inspire me, photography of anything..a recipe..an inspirational saying or quote..customers...creative people...crafts.
Do you take custom orders? Yes..I am always open to new ideas. Some of my best inspirations have been from customers...I also try to give customers the best service possible & even put unexpected little somethings in their pkgs. Sometimes it's clips..
