Saturday Spotlight- Angi at

Name: Angi or better known as "Crafty Angi"

Where are you from?: Terrific Texas (Houston)
What do specialize in?: I specialize in handmade crafts, custom scrapbooks, keepsake boxes, etc. I make gifts for baby, weddings, birthdays, teachers, and more.
Name & URL of store: My store is called Crafty Angi's and you can find me at
Where did the name come from?: I kept my store name simple. I love to craft and scrapbook so I incorporated my name around the word "craft" to come up with "Crafty Angi". I also added a slogan to my store - "Flying High With Creativity"
How did you get started on etsy?: A friend of mine shops on Etsy all the time and she suggested that I start an online shop there. I loved the format and ease of using Etsy and set up shop pretty quickly. I am loving my time and experience on Etsy.
Any advice for new etsy sellers that you have learned?: I have learned a lot from reading the forum posts and asking my own questions there as well. There is a wealth of information in the forum that will really help a newbie on Etsy. I also have other scrapbooking friends that have given me advice on taking good pictures, using great descriptive words, etc.
What do you want customers to know about you and/or your product: Many may not know that I am the proud mom of 2 beautiful girls. My oldest is going off to college in California in August. My youngest keeps me busy with her activities in volleyball, choir, and Girl Scouts. I am also a Junior high English teacher.I am so BLESSED to be able to create and design things that make people happy. I use only the high quality designer papers and embellishments. I make products that I would love to have myself or to give as a gift to someone else. My new passion is Acrylic albums. They are a fun twist to the traditional scrapbooks. Check them out in my Etsy shop!
Shameless addictions (retail therapy, etc): I am an HGTV addict. Because of this addiction I am currently redecorating my home. I love flowers, painting, looking at different fabrics, and home decor. Maybe my next career will be in interior design (smile)
Anything else interesting you'd like to share with us? I am a U.S. Veteran. I proudly served in the Marine Corps. I am a BIG SUPPORTER of our brave men and women that serve in the armed forces.
She is so super sweet! So, comment and you could win a $20 gift certificate to her store!!! You got it, FREE! (Use for yourself, save for a great Christmas gift, etc??) So, how do you enter?
