Please keep watching out for my June Featured Seller and Giveaway.
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
I asked Jaylene what inspires her the most and she said, "The idea of creating something that makes someone else feel special and that becomes a part of who they are. The joy of my products being incorporated into something as special as someone’s wedding day."
Jaylene tells me about how she became an Etsy shop owner. "I owned a retail gift and craft store for several years and have missed that. I helped my husband design footwear at one point when he worked in that industry and later started designing my own footwear. I began creating those designs, and they were popular with friends and family, so I decided to search for a venue to sell my handmade designs." Jaylene continued to explain that she had been crafting for over 15 years in several different forms. She has done florals, tole painting and rustic wood crafts before discovering her talent with footwear.
Jaylene is a mother of one and a Grandmother to two with another one on the way. She actually discovered Etsy by accident. While on a social networking site, she came across an ad for Etsy. She had been looking for a venue that showcased handmade products. She loves to shop for supplies right on Etsy too! I asked Jaylene what she like to do to relax and she replied, "Aside from creating new products, I like to read and spend time with my family and grandchildren."
For this months featured seller giveaway, Jaylene is going to giveaway a pair of black flip flops with your choice of rhinestone color! Perfect for the summer!
