Meet Friday’s Featured Artist

Traditions are fun. They are something that can usually be counted on and granted excited anticipation (think Christmas) or they can be scary (think Shirley Jackson’s, The Lottery.) I decided, in about the amount of time it takes for me to bite into a pop tart, that I need to start a tradition or two right here on this blog. For without further ado, I give you Featured Fridays. Every Friday we’ll get to know an awesome Etsy shop owner and what she or he sells to boot. It’ll be great fun, and a great chance to get to know some shops on Etsy you may not have thought to visit before.

Meet the owner of ThatSingularAnomaly

I’m going to start the feature off with ThatSingularAnomaly. Today is the shop owner’s 21st birthday. So…. it’s kind of a big deal! Read all about this fabulous birthday girl and give her shop some delectable birthday attention of which it deserves!

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I am a half-Thai, half-American college student that deals with (not “suffers from”) Bipolar Disorder. I have four published novels under the name Donaya Haymond, with more to follow, and I turn 21 on October 7. I love helping others, crochet, fencing, singing, and haunting Regretsy.

Tell us about what you sell on Etsy:
I sell soft and colorful wearable items I have crocheted, with a strong emphasis on fingerless gloves – I have had a passion for them since I was 15 and have a collection of over twenty machine-made pairs, along with of course a bunch of handmade.

Blue and Brown Fingerless Gloves - $15.00

What is your favorite thing about creating?
The enthusiasm people seem to have for my little crafty efforts, and when I know someone’s life has been brightened by my sold or donated work.

Where do you find your inspiration?
I love to peruse multicolored yarns on Etsy and at craft stores, and I also think of what my avatar, Neil Gaiman’s character Delirium from the Sandman graphic novel series would like to wear.

Blue Vegan Mittens - $18.00

Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other Etsy sellers?
Join a team and participate enthusiastically. Invest in a professional banner. Have fun with it.

ILUVCF4L will always get you 10% off everything in the shop.

Thanks to ThatSingularAnomaly for sharing! Let us know what you think of the feature because, like every great tradition, you can expect more where that came from!
