Merry Christmas everyone! Oh….. it’s MARCH? I guess mother nature didn’t get the memo since she’s dumping BUCKETS OF SNOW in my front yard. I hear the weather is really nice and sunny elsewhere in the world. But not here. It’s snowing. Three days ago was the official First Day of Spring and it’s freaking SNOWING. So I figure I might as well spread some holiday cheer and wish everyone a Merry Christmas (or Hanukkah or Kwanza or whatever your preference may be). Because after all, we all know that the holidays are basically the only thing that make such crappy weather bearable. Oh, and finding new handmade artist we adore. That also helps.
In case you don’t feel like going out and getting another tree to put in your living room, allow me to brighten up your day by introducing you to Cathy from PosyPop. Find out more about this wonderful artist and her creations by reading the interview below. (Oh, and feel free to tell me what awesome weather you are having where YOU live in the comments below. Feeling envious once and awhile isn’t such a bad thing as long as it reminds me we aren’t all humming Deck the Halls.)
Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I’m a stay at home mom, a wife, an Etsy seller, and the organizer of my local moms group. I am an Etsy addict, because not only do I love to sell my creations, but I buy way too much too! I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, creating jewelry, crafting, and watching films from the 30’s and 40’s.
Tell us about what you sell:
I sell vintage inspired jewelry…rings, earring, bracelets, necklaces. I often use vintage components in my items and I have a great time hunting for those little treasures.
What is your favorite thing about creating/collecting?
My favorite thing about creating is the whole process, from finding components, to listing and selling my items on Etsy. It something I can say I really enjoy and I do it because I love it.
Where do you find your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from anything from old films, to ideas and colors that just pop into my head when I look at a vintage jewelry component.
Do you have any selling tips or tricks for other online sellers?
Have clear photos, thorough descriptions, and ship quickly. I can’t stress enough how important photos are.
