December is The Month of Giving

CJ's Fine Designs has decided to bring you a month of giving to honor the holiday spirit! We are kicking off the month with a Giveaway from Etsy shop OhHappyDayCreations! I wanted to find out a little more about the shop owner:

1) What is your name?
Theresa

2) Where do you live and what is it like?
Right outside of NYC. Its getting cold now! Winter is almost here. It is a nice place to live. 30 minutes from the BIG Apple and 30 minutes from some nice beaches. I grew up here, so it home.

3) How did you find Etsy?
I was looking for some great handmade touches for my recent wedding. I had made a bunch of things myself, but there were still a few other things I wanted. Someone on a wedding message board mentioned Etsy...and I have been in love ever since!

4) What is your craft and when did you start doing it?
Right now I mostly make items for wedding, party decor. Pomander balls, place cards, gift tags. But lately I have made some pretty note card sets. I love rubber stamps, ink, and embossing. I am venturing into letterpress now too...be on the lookout for the cool new items come the new year.

5) What gives you inspiration?
Weddings, nature, color.

6) Where do you work from (home, office, boutique, a tiny corner of the house... lol)?
We have an second bedroom in our apartment. Its the office/craft room! I usually just spread out on the floor in there! My crafts have taken over!

7) What will you be doing for the holidays?
For Thanksgiving, we are headed to my husband's mom's house in CT. And for Christmas we will be with my family here in NY. My dad is Mr. Christmas. So naturally, it is my favorite time of the year as well. He starts decorating right after Halloween. We all joke about it...he bypasses Thanksgiving every year. LOL.

8) What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Being with my family and decorating the tree. Also, I love NYC in the Christmas time. All the shops, the tree, the people...it is really is a special place.

9) Where else can we find you? Blog, twitter, facebook, etsy shops, website, etc...
My etsy shop is my only internet home right now. I often think about starting a blog...maybe one day. There are so many amazing wedding items, ideas, and vendors out there. I might put a blog together featuring all the awesome Etsy wedding items I come across.


Theresa, from OhHappyDayCreations has been kind enough to offer this lovely Holiday Gift Tag Set to the winner of our first Month of Giving contest!
