Saturday Spotlight On Sunday :) & Giveaway!


Name: Alessandra Hayden (Just Be Happy)


Where are you from: I was born in Brazil, but my hubby is American and we live in Tacoma, state of Washington



What do specialize in: Crochet - I absolutely love it!

Name & URL of store: Just Be happy http://www.justbehappy.etsy.com/

Where did the name come from: from a converstation with my husband saying that just be happy should be my motto

How did you get started on etsy?: I decided to open my etsy shop because I had friends and family that wanted to buy the things I made, so I thought that maybe there were more people out there that would appreciate my work too.



Any advice for new etsy sellers that you have learned?: be patient, also, have a variety of colors for the same items so people have options



What do you want customers to know about you and/or your product: that I'm a stay at home mom to a beautiful baby boy and all my crochet work is made with love, also I want them to know that I accept custom orders and I don't charge anything extra for it and that the money I make on etsy does help with my household income.



Shameless addictions (retail therapy, etc): I'm addicted to milk chocolate, crochet, internet and love fiestaware china - although I don't have too many pieces.



Anything else interesting you'd like to share with us: I'll be gone until the 26th of August, going to have my little guy baptized, so if you are the winner of this giveaway, don't panic! I'll mail your necklace as soon as I get home!
Thank you for participating!!

I've been following Alessandra's blog and etsy shop for a while now, and I must say all her items are gorgeous!

I've purchased one pattern from her a couple of months ago (the Love You Forever Wreath) but I confess my favourite items from her shop are shrugs, which I can't purchase because they're too big for me. ;-)
