It’s time for another giveaway!
This week’s giveaway is brought to you by one of my amazing sponsors.
So before we get to what you can win, here’s a little info about the shop.
I asked Stephanie, the brain behind this shop, a few questions and this is what she had to say:
Who or what is your store named for? I named my shop after my grandmother, Betty Lou Taylor. She helped raise me and has always been a big part of my life and a source of inspiration so this was my way of honoring her.
What are your inspirations? Inspiration for me usually comes from the materials I use. I never know what I am going to create when I sit down to make a new piece. I love to use bright colors and a variety of textures. I sort of let the materials speak to me.
Sometimes I have a certain person in mind when I create a new piece (a friend or one of my sisters). I will make it to their taste, incorporating my interpretation of their personal style or colors I know they like.
What are three favorite items from your shop and why? I love the Fabulous Faux Pearl and Rosette Statement Bib Necklace because it is just so much fun to make! I love how the black and white accents contrast with the bright bold colors of the flowers.
I also love items like the Romantic Ivory Rosette Duo with Pearls and Rhinestone Hair Clip because I know that it is most likely for a bride and I’m always so honored to be a part of their special day!
And I really like the Lime Green and Black Flower Rosette Statement Necklace because it is more my personal taste. I have one that I wear all the time and I just love it.
Where do you see yourself and your shop in the next year? In the next year I hope to have my home studio totally completed. Right now it’s not quite where I want it to be (it’s a total mess!!!). But I really look forward to having a work space that is organized and reflects my style. I also look forward to creating a ton of new pieces. I would love to create a line of hats!
Any advice for aspiring Etsy shop owners? If I could offer one piece of advice for aspiring Etsy shop owners it would be to GO FOR IT! Etsy has changed my life. Not only has it given me a much needed outlet for creativity, it has given me a real chance to make a living off of what I love to do. I always knew I wanted to be an artist and to be my own boss and the Etsy community has given me the tools I needed to make that happen.
Today you all have the change to win a gorgeous item
