Hi everyone,
I'm Donna from Arizona, and I'm proud to be is such creative company.

I currently have two etsy shops. At http://www.paperandprint.ety.com I sell art prints made from vintage illustrations, etchings, engravings, etc. digitally enhanced and printed on vintage book pages, such as dictionary pages. I also offer digital downloads of vintage images I particularly love.

My other shop is http://www.vintageaditude.etsy.com where I sell vintage magazine ads and illustrations, many of them from the 1920s-'40s, geared both to collectors and to artists who use vintage images in their work.

I hope some of you will stop by. As for me, I plan to go back and read as much of this thread as I can get through now and check out some wonderful shops.

Donna

Hi,
I'm LeAllyson and I am glad to be here. I create handcrafted jewelry.  My business is Plum Beadacious. I have a website, www.plumbeadacious.com.  I also have an ArtFire shop and an Etsy shop.  I try to keep up with my blog at www.plumbeadacious.blogspot.com.  I have a Twitter page and a Facebook page.  Trying to get into the social media thing, but finding it takes lots of time.

I have been designing beaded lanyards lately.  I wear one each day to my day job, and I am hoping to appeal to others who get tired of the usual plain lanyard cord.

I am excited about reading and seeing what everyone here does.

I joined this forum a few months ago. I think I remember introducing myself but I'll do it again in case I ddin't.

I'm glad to have joined this site. It looks like a lot of fun. My name is Bob Kimball. I'm an artist from Las Vegas and I make oil paintings and drawings. Most of my paintings are landscapes and still life. And most of my drawings are figure drawings.

My name is Hana, I have 4 sons, one grandson and two great daughters-in-law. My life is ordinary, but the formation of beads adds beauty to it every day.

Previously I was employed as a domestic worker in the manufacture of jewelry. Then I learned the basics. Over time the company ceased to exist, but let me beads. Recently I started in this business field and try to improve every day. I'm not an expert on jewelry designs, so I have a husband who makes me the following suggestions and I will impersonate. Although some jewelry I designed myself, it is mostly jewelry crazy and nobody dares to wear it

I enjoy the most customized jewelry that are very demanding on time and material, but are exclusive and can be worn only on special occasions.

We will create a custom tailor any piece of jewelry, according to the delivered quality photos or drawing

Wow, so this is a really popular topic eh? ;)

Hope everyone is well and good. I'm a London girl and I love to make my own vintage and indie inspired jewellery. I also create and design my own web sites which I do in my spare time.

It’s really hard to know what people would be interested in hearing about other people. I'm not what most would class as a typical 'girly girl' who loves shopping, make up and soppy music. I'm very much into me indie/rock music and computer games and stupid noises make me laugh out loudly (shameful but true)!

I'm a straight forward kind of person who doesn't appreciate bulls**t. But I am a very friendly and caring person who believes that life is all about being happy.

That's me in a nutshell. Hope to get to know some of you soon =)

Hi there and hello to everyone! :D

I'm Stephanie,  SAHM of twin boys who are about to turn the much dreaded 2 years old.

To keep my sanity in a house of madness I : Knit, Crochet, Watch cooking shows (and then attempt to cook what I saw), just recently started making jewelry (I caught some kind of bead-bug, I swear), watch the most random movies, sing, dance, break out into random fits of laughter, collect comic books, make shadow puppets to make the boys laugh, tell knock-knock jokes, and just enjoy being an oddball.

In the grand scheme of things, I'm still a wet-behind-the-ears when it comes to crafting. I've only been in the "game" for a little less than 3 years. I taught myself how to crochet during the last two months of my pregnancy when I was put on bed-rest, and the doctor suggested I take up some kind of craft. I bought a book, some yarn and hooks, hit the ground running, and haven't looked back. I then taught myself how to knit, and it's opened up a whole new world to me.
 
Just started listing things to sell on Etsy at the very end of August.

Lol, I'm such a newb.

I'm thrilled and excited to be part of a community of crafters. There are a few people I know that knit/crochet/bead, but ... It's such an immense joy to bond with people from around the globe who have a passion for the tactile arts.

Looking forward to talking, sharing and growing with all of you!

:D
