On to my very first Featured Seller.....
From the Etsy community, we have Jen!
She is a busy lady with not one but two shops - Squidooink, where you will find a ton of assorted crafts and destash, and Somewear In Tyme, carrying delicate times past inspired jewelry/vintage items.
Here are Jen’s favorite items from her two shops:
I love the length and how it has wings and clock pieces in it. Its so unusual looking to me
Giraffe says Love - Baby congratulations card - Squidooink
Tell us a bit about yourself. I'm terribly at these so here it goes. I am as some tell me a "crafty oozing out of my pores" type girl. I am always making new items, or writing, or reading. Always doing something creative and sometimes I sleep. My two shops kinda opened by chance I think, I never really intended to actually sell my work. Shortly after being forced to move and having my heart broken I open Somewear in Tyme. I don't think it would have ever opened if I hadn't had that happen to me. Squidooink was created way before Somewear In Tyme but after I learned how to make jewelery.
How did you start your craft? I learned jewelry in high school and kept at it, ripping apart anything I could find and making it into jewelry. Then a friend of mind got me into paper crafting, the rest is history ;) shortly after that I wanted to learn how to knit so I taught myself.
Besides creating, what do you like to do? Read and write my own stories, I would love to have a story of mine published one day.
How do you promote your work? The etsy forums, anyone I met, I wear my work, or offer crafting services to anyone, spread my moo cards everywhere

What's next for you and your shop? Grow expand, make new unique items. Make more cards, since I haven't done that in awhile, as for jewelry I'm trying out the domino/ picture frame pieces and enjoying that. I'm hoping to show case my work in a market next year!
Happy sales to you Jen! I hope everyone takes some tyme to check her out.
