Etsy Blogger's Blog Carnival

I am a new member of Etsy bloggers team.
The Etsy Bloggers Blog Carnival is one of our super fun team events!!
The blog carnival is held bi-weekly.
This is my first post dedicated to this event ...

The Carnival theme for Etsy Bloggers is:
What made you open a shop on Etsy?
What do you like about being a seller on Etsy?
What don't you like?

I opened my Etsy shop to June 7, 2008.
I discovered etsy reading here and there in various blogs and social network ...
before Etsy, sell my creations on ebay, but as you know, ebay is more expensive, so I decided to try out etsy because I liked the idea of having a shop all my own, with my banners and especially also to sell ' Foreign ...
Etsy it is only for artists, instead on ebay, people go mainly to buy things used, and brand ...

I love Etsy, I like doing many treasury, participate in the team, and buy many things from other artists ...
I love the wonderful community of people that I have met through Etsy - some very nice and supportive people...

Thanks to etsy, I'm slowly learning the English, although I still have much difficulty in the pronunciation, but I'm putting the whole to become more good ....
But for me was and is still very difficult to get in and know me, from esty ...
There are many sellers and few buyers may ...
etsy is better known in Usa, so for me that I live in Italy I have more difficulty in selling ...
we must have patience, be aware, participate in forums, to the treasury, to do a lot of promotions and advertising ....
I spend many hours in front of the computer, I hope that one day all this work will have great results ...
In conclusion I love etsy and I hope that my shop one day bring his successful ...

My Interview by Naan Pocen

Naan Pocen A FREELANCE FASHION DESIGNER AND A FREELANCE WRITER, wrote something to me in her blog ....
You can read my interview in her Blog : CREATIVE ART
and read her interesting personal blog here

When did you realize you are indeed an artist?
I have always had a passion to create, to recycle items, and to invent and process things from scratch. I don’t consciously think of myself as an artist BUT as a person who always loves to create and learn new techniques.

What led you to start expressing your artistic side?
After I became a mother, I used my free time to create jewellery and accessories for myself and my friends. That was also about the time that I discovered Etsy and the world of eShops

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?
I have always had a passion for sewing clothes for myself, but I also loved unique and original accessories, and I found such joy in creating them, or seeing people wear such.

How do you find your inspiration?
I spend countless hours searching for new materials and findings for my jewellery. It‘s inevitable to get an idea or inspiration after such intense consideration of materials. Sometimes just studying them creates images of the completed item in my mind.

How do you deal with people that don’t appreciate your art?
I get a balance from those that DO appreciate and buy my products so it very much compensates for the half that don‘t. Besides, I really don’t give it much though because everyone has their own tastes and I respect that.

Which other artist (s) do you admire? Why?
I really admire many artists, and every day I discover even more. For instance, a few days ago, I discovered Munieca http//, I like her paperdoll,, I like for her prints, and i love for her colorful and kawaii goodies.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?
I love life, beautiful things, colours, and I love laughter. I would love to convey all of these through my creations.

If you never become famous with your art would you still think it was a route worth taking?
Certainly. The joy of art is in its creation, its appreciation, its ability to enrich the mind. We must not think of art as a means for fame and wealth, but as a way of expression, to keep the mind active, and as the wholesome way to live fully, daily. If success and fame comes, then it comes as a surprise.

And folks, in her own words….a little bit more about our artist besides her art…..
My name is Evelyn, I’m 27 years old and the mother of a beautiful boy named Brian. I live in a tourist town by sea, in Italy. I am a SAHM and spend a lot of time with her son, which is why I can spare the time to create and experiment with new things. I am crazy about travelling and would gladly travel around the world. I love adventure and unspoiled places…. white beaches …the sun ... my dream would be to live somewhere warm all year round.

This week I'm featured in a Team Treasury
with my New Green Owl Ring

Thanks Etsy Twitter Team

  • post the rules on your blog,
  • write six random things about yourself,
  • tag six people at the end of your post and
    link to them,
  • let each person know they've been tagged.
So, I'm passing this award to the blogs:

La Pirillinca
Celeste Frittata
THe House of Mouse

6 random things about myself:

-mmmm... I can see where to start ....
That my name is Evelyn and I am a mother of a beautiful boy named Brian know already .... March 2 will be his second birthday .... soon,
I think I will do like last year, a celebration at home with all the friends and relatives, a giant cake and lots of good things and very caloric food .....

-guess where I met the first time my husband?
we met on holiday in Brazil, he was with his friends, and I with my friend .... it was perhaps destiny ....
I and my friend had to go on vacation in Miami, but there was the hurricane and then we had to change course and so we went to Natal, has been a wonderful adventure ... we come back again ... .

-I have lived up to my 24 years in Verona, a beautiful city, very romantic, know Romeo and Juliet ...
Then I met Andrew and I moved here in Milano Marittima ... we have a small house near the sea, I never had the sea so a short walk from home, too good in the summer ....
the only bad thing is that summer is full of people and you have to do to exit the queue in the car .... luckily not ever go out in the car ....

Years ago I liked to go to the disco, being in the midst of people, amid the confusion, the loud music ....
now I love very quiet, spend evenings with my son playing in the couch, go to sea with him .... spend hours alone in my corner to create jewelry .....

I'm already thinking about the next trip .....
I would like to visit the United States, but also the East .... I am very undecided .... I was in Brazil, the Netherlands Antilles (Caribbean), in Palma de Mallorca (Balearic Islands), Kenya, a Monaco di Baviera (Germany), Barcelona, London 4 times, and of course in various parts of Italy ...
I would like to visit Australia one day ....

I discovered a few months to make the pleasure craft markets, is very funny .... I like to set up the banquet, make it cozy, I love the colors ..... and then the contact with people ... soon there will be a little more heat, I believe that attending to a few hours .... marketplace is too cold, I do not feel like ...

I hope I didn't bore you! LOL! ... and apologize for the mistakes, I am not good with English ..... I decided that my blog must be in English so they can also read people all over the world ...

I'm looking foward to reading more about you.
