Introducing Katie Lyn Sherry owner of My Heart 2 Yours! At My Heart 2 Yours you will find beautifully paper crafted art items like altered checkbook covers, altered monogram letters. When asked where, how, when did you learn your craft she said, “I can't remember exactly, I've been doing this since I could hold scissors in my hand.” Katie’s husband has been her biggest inspiration. He sees the little things that she does and encourages her to fly with whatever she feels like doing. “Right now as we save for our down payment on a house, we live in a 2 bedroom apartment. He graciously gave me the master bedroom and bathroom as my art studio, we sleep in the spare bedroom with the tiny closet. How sweet is that!” Wow, now that is TRUE support and LOVE!Katie likes surprising details in her design style. She says, “at first glance a piece should have balance and be nice to look at, but with further inspection there should be things to discover. I do this by using Swarovski crystals or charms, ribbons etc.”Katie has been selling on Etsy for 6 months. Katie would like you to see how original her designs are. She does not copy other artists or designers. “I love to create my own things.” She loves the handmade venue of Etsy!

Hyla learned her craft from her mom as a child. Her children are my biggest inspiration. When asked about her design style she said, “I like to provide whimsical fantasy items for children as there doesn’t seem to be much of anything right now.”
Hyla has been selling on Etsy since June of this year. What Hyla would like you to notice most about her work is how vibrant they are and full of love. Fantasy inspires imagination. In regards to selling on Etsy Hyla says, “It is very easy to list and it is a great community in the forums.”

Let it SNOW!!! We finally took the girls out sledding last week. It had warmed up some...around 30 degrees! So we thought it would be fun for them! They like the snow, but weren't too sure about sledding together! The snow was about 7 inches deep and fluffy, so it was hard to keep the sled balanced. Needless to say they tipped over a few times. Their snowsuits are very warm, but I think they also limited their freedom of movement! Which added to their frustration! Overall, we had a good time!
Look at us mom, we are little Snow Princesses!
Their new winter coats are wonderful! They haven't worn them much because it has been "warm" for Fairbanks lately. But the temperatures are starting to dip below freezing! So, I am sure we will be using these everyday soon! The girls love the furry collar and cuffs!
What beautiful little girls you are growing up to be! I can't believe they will soon be 1 1/2 years old! They are such a joy! They are such busy bodies these days. Trista is always trying to get behind the couch for some reason! And the both are little climbers! They love to play with each other! They will climb into their toy box and play together with dolls, puppies, or just about anything!
Tori in pink, Trista in purple.
Latley the love to play with the box that the diapers come in! Or the Wish Book catalogs! They always seem to find the page with puppies on it! They are starting to say more things now. I am sure it won't be long before they are talking up a storm like their mommy!
Just thought you might like an update! I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! Wish we could have been with family!

She is a self taught artist. Corline’s inspirations comes from her mother, who was very talented in all the arts. Also, she observes what people wear, color combination, fashion, nature, just life in general.
She loves color and design and how things are put together. Corline has been making things for about 12 years. She started making upholstered small doll furniture then doll clothes and then on to what she is doing now. She specializes in adult and toddler aprons. The style is updated for today's woman. The aprons are chic, modern, some vintage, some traditional but definitely not ordinary. They are not your mother's aprons.
Corline has been selling on Etsy for not quite a year. She says, “I am afraid I have neglected my Etsy store just keeping up with the aprons that I sell in a very nice boutique. But that is a good thing!” Corline would like you to notice the color, the design, the careful workmanship, and the variety of her products. She uses all designer fabric and ribbon for her items. When asked what she likes about selling on Etsy this is what she had to say, “I appreciate how willing the people are about sharing their knowledge about various things; it is a very helpful community and a very caring community. I love the fact that there are so many "stay at home moms" and all their great creativity. Their are so many talented artist and the work is marvelous. The 90 features in 90 days, created by Giftbearer has been a great experience, learning so much about the outstanding artist.”

What is your Shop name?
Me and my sister Suzy Wortberg share 2 shops: ContasBrasil for our jewelry and ContasKoeln for supplies.
What items do you sell?
ContasBrasil is a brand, all our fashion-jewelry is designed by 3 artists: me, Suzy Wortberg (we both are Brazilian but live in Germany) and Ana Vilas Boas (she's an architect too, lives in Brazil). All pieces are unique, one-of-a-kind, and are made by the artists themselves. We create mostly necklaces, but also some armbands, and we have just started to make our first earrings! Will be brand new this week in our etsy shop! . We also create pieces for children.
Besides, we sell Doll Bags, a fabulous brand by Sandra Funkelman, a Brazilian artist, all handmade and embroidered, unique, original pieces that go very well with the ContasBrasil spirit.
Where, how, when did you learn your craft?
I started by accident 2 years ago, when I was still living in Brazil. I had bought some beads for my sister, and although the 2 of them were already very successful in Germany, I had not yet seen their work at that time. Before I packed them I decided to give it a try...and send it to Germany together with Ana's necklaces. I loved it instantaneously, kept some beads with me right away, enrolled in a jewelry course, bought some more beads... one month later I had my first show! By the way, my very first necklace was sold, I've never seen the color of the money because I forgot to tell my sister!! She only realized it some months ago!!
Who has been your biggest inspiration?
If anyone, Ana Vilas Boas! Although my style differs totally from hers, I was really inspired by the beauty of her creations! We always say Ana is the Lagerfeld from the fashion-jewelry world!
How long have you been doing your craft?
Exactly 2 years.
Tell us a little about your design style?
I studied architecture, and I love modern architecture. I think some of my pieces are very influenced by that. Very much the shape of the bead and the color. But I have always been a fan of flea markets, vintage stuff, I loved indie before I knew what the word meant. So I have this very baroque side, full of details, not symmetrical, not perfect, non industrialized aesthetic. You can see this influence in my costume and set design (for theater).I am an actress and director and have my own theater company T4G!
How long have you been selling on Etsy?
Roughly 6 months.
What do you want the readers to notice about your work?
We've been putting a lot of attention in our photos, because they have to conceal the originality from our design. We also invest on an eclectic mix of material, quite unusual in my point of view: semi-precious stones, pearls, muranos, crystal mixed with seeds, cocos, wood beads. Almost all our clasps are gold plated or silver. Our sole enemy is the lack of time!!
What do you like most about selling on Etsy?
The network one builds with other sellers, with everything that this involves. But also, I would only buy at etsy if I lived in the States! I love this marketplace! And I'm addicted to the treasure!
Where can the reader find you?
Besides Etsy, we sell on DaWanda, an European platform for handmade creations. And we will be opening our atelier with a little shop in Köln in November!!Everyone is invited to visit us there!

She is inspired by materials, emotional experiences, and necessity! She has been her biggest support, but her husband has been her biggest fan for the last 6 years. As far as jewelry goes, she does what the beads tell her to do. Everything else is an idea, thought, random pondering...and she thinks she can get it out of her head and make it a reality.
Staci has been selling on Etsy since last year. She would like you to notice that her work is unique, one-of-a-kind, a work that is meant for that special someone. Staci loves the artistic, supportive community of Etsy.

What she wants you to noticed about her work is her commitment to detail, proportion, color, quality materials and workmanship, and ultimately wearability.What Ginny likes most about selling on Etsy is when it happens! Having a shop is so very easy to do on Etsy, but she doesn’t really cater to the disposable-trendy or impulse buyers, so she doesn’t make a sale everyday, or even every week.
Sunday, November 4, 2007
Be sure to check her shop often since she frequently changes her design style. There is something for everyone in her Etsy shop where she has been selling for just over two months. She enjoys selling on Etsy because of the diverse group of buyers, many wonderful people, and the great opportunities. Karen takes great pride in all that she creates! Take a look, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

Tori and Trista love to watch football with Daddy! As a matter of fact, they love to do anything with Daddy! When he is gone at work they will stand and point out the window yelling "Daddy"! How do you explain to a 16 month old that Daddy is at work and will not be home for 2 days?
They are by far the joys of our lives! Many evenings we just sit and laugh at them because they are doing yet another cute thing!
God has blessed our lives with the best daughters I could ever ask for!
