1-11-10 MONDAY'S MARKETPLACE~OFG TEAM~FEATURED ARTIST

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,
Lisa Reiman of The Moonlit Stitch
Below is a sample of her work and you can see everything on Etsy at:







~Interview with Lisa~


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

I chose “The Moonlit Stitch” because often the only time to work on my projects is during the “moonlit” hours of the night or early morning when everyone else is sleeping!

2. How long have you been on Etsy?


I joined Etsy in February 2008. It’s a wonderful place to buy and sell handmade items and meet folks with similar interests, like the ladies of “Old Farmhouse Gathering”.

3. What type of items do you offer?


Primitive style make-do’s, dollfolk (snowmen, santas), ornies and bowl fillers.


4. How long have you been crafting?

I can remember crafting with my mom and grandma at a very young age and have never stopped!

5. Who or What inspires you?


Inspiration is all around us! I love the changing seasons.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?

Currently I have some fabric candy canes in an old canning jar listed. I was selling these at a craft show recently and a gentleman looked at them and asked why I would put old fabric candy canes in a jar. I chuckled and said, “It’s a PRIMITIVE thing!”

7. Other places where you can be found:

I occasionally sell on ebay as “the*moonlit*stitch”
You can visit my blog at: www.themoonlitstitch.blogspot.com.
My etsy store is: http://www.themoonlitstitch.etsy.com/


Now, I can really relate to Lisa, as most of my work is done from 9pm at to 3 am in the morning. It's the best time since there are no distractions and you can actually think and rest your mind while designing and creating.
It is my favorite form of therapy. Bravo, Lisa!

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:

http://www.teresasprimtreasures.etsy.com/


~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)
