(Don’t Forget to scroll down a couple posts and enter to win the felted basket from JudyAGoddard)

Hello and welcome to this edition of Cheri’s Pickin’s where I, your wonderful host, introduce you to some fabulous sellers and their wonderful goodies! There are so many fabulous sellers on etsy and all over the web and I am going to help you find some of them. I have asked each seller to give me a little info on themselves and their shop and at the end you will find out how you can win a free item! So, without further delay…. here is this weeks pickin’!

I was born and raised in the Chicago area and it truly is a remarkable city.  I’m passionate about my artistic hobbies and I want to use my talent for the greatest benefit.  I’ve been crafting as long as I can remember but I just started my budding sales in September of 2008.  I donate a portion of all my profits to worthwhile causes.  There are countless worthwhile organizations that can use support in the Chicagoland area.  My mission is to set realistic goals to raise donations toward these beneficial organizations. I hope that this business continues to grow and that my list of organizations grows with it.il_430xn403695981

Cheri’s Pickin’s

Hello and welcome to this edition of Cheri’s Pickin’s where I, your wonderful host, introduce you to some fabulous sellers and their wonderful goodies! There are so many fabulous sellers on etsy and all over the web and I am going to help you find some of them. I have asked each seller to give me a little info on themselves and their shop and at the end you will find out how you can win a free item! So, without further delay…. here is this weeks pickin’!

(This first week I will feature myself to give an example of what I am doing and to work out any unforeseen kinks in the system. If you are a seller on or off etsy please let me know if you would like to be featured in my blog!)

LoveAlways, XOX

I am so excited to dedicate a whole post to my etsy shop! I have been including little bits and pieces throughout my previous blogs but I want you all to know that I do in fact have an online store!

I started out by creating with my sister-in-law when we worked together on our Retied materials for the Funky Barn Boutique. We created belts, purses, bracelets and more from upcycled neckties. I then added my curtain tiebacks

When the Funky Barn was no more 😦 I just stopped because I didn’t have another place to sell my stuff. Enter Etsy. I just love it! I have added much more to my store including gift and shop tags, die cuts, cards and cardsets, paper dolls, onesies, tutus, magnets and more. I have also started making altered clipboards but right now they are custom order only and I am not selling them on etsy. You can contact me if you would like one!

My shop name came from the way some sign the end of letters and cards. I wanted it to reflect a little of me and my product. I love the color pink and hearts and all things girly so it just seemed a natural fit! I do most of my work from my home studio which is basically the space I overtook in my husbands music room. Whoops!

Inspiration mostly comes from my kids and family. I usually start with an idea for one of my kids and then branch out from there. My tutus started because I wanted one for my daughter and couldn’t afford any of the ones out there. They have been one of my best sellers! I really want to offer buyers an exceptional, boutique product at a non-boutique price. I heart custom orders and have done many items custom including tag sets, shower invitations, thank you cards, onesies, tutus….

When I’m not creating or cleaning I enjoy loving on my husband and babies, scrapbooking, photography, music and pretty much anything that involves my family or friends!

My best seller has by far been my tag sets. I have had many custom orders and repeat customers. My husband is constantly asking me what people are using them for! They are great for gifts, party favors, scrapbook journaling, shop items and more.

Now you can have a chance to win some and figure out some of your own uses. LoveAlways, XOX will be sending a goody bag to one lucky winner! Included will be one round fall tag set, one bold and beautiful tag set (the most popular set, and the last one), two cards and one Retied bracelet. Over a $12 value. Wohoo!
