MONDAY'S MARKETPLACE FEATURED ARTIST at OFG on ETSY

Each Monday, I'll be featuring a member from The Old Farmhouse Gathering Team on Etsy. These are some very talented artisans who create everything from Primitive to Shabby Chic, with an old fashioned flair!


This week it is truly my pleasure to introduce to you my fellow OFG sister, Teresa Miller of Teresa's Prim Treasures
Below is a sample of her work and you can see everything on Etsy at:

~INTERVIEW with Teresa~

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?


My Etsy shop name is Teresa's Prim Treasures. When I first started attending craft shows and needed to apply for a tax ID number I was told your name had to be in your title to avoid filing for a fictious name. I loved "Primitives" and wanted others to "treasure" my creations for years to come. So, putting all 3 of these together I came up with Teresa's Primitive Treasures for my website. When I opened my Etsy shop I shortened it a bit to TeresasPrimTreasures.


2. How long have you been on Etsy?

I joined Etsy in September of 2007 but didn't list anything to sell until 5 months later. So I began selling in March 2008.


3. What type of items do you offer?


My husband makes shelves, cabinets, cupboards and anything wooden I ask him to craft..... most of the time.... and I do the sanding and painting. I also love to paint and sew! You will find all 3 types of work in my shop. I love working with wool and hand stitching!

4. How long have you been crafting?


I started sewing Amish dolls and dressed bunnies back in 1989 for a local gift shop..... so that would make it 20 years! Really hard to believe! I've been so fortunate to be a stay at home mom and craft for that long.


5. Who or What inspires you?

My mother is my greatest inspiration! She has a house full of antiques and ideas for projects. I love looking at old books and surfing the web for interesting patterns!

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?


I would say my Tattered Prairie Dolls. I created and named them after my nieces and my first Granddaughter. They have done quite well for me over the years!

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

  3. Just received a check for $500.

    Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can earn by taking paid surveys online...

    So I show them a video of myself actually getting paid $500 for filling paid surveys to set the record straight once and for all.
