Etsy shop interview of the month for Feb!

Interview with CubicleMonkey

1. How did you find Etsy?

Well, I found it a few years ago actually, before I even got into card making and paper crafts. But I have to give credit where it is due, my good friend Amy brought Etsy back to my attention after she opened her store She is hilarious!

2. How did you get into the craft/artwork thta you do now?
Again, thanks to a friend! As you can see by my etsy name, I am a cube monkey by day, and a former coworker started selling a line of stamping products. She needed some help getting her business off the ground, so I had her come to my place to host a small party. That party opened my eyes to the world of paper crafts!

3. What inspires you?
I am inspired by the independence and freedom that crafting allows. With the line of 8-5 work I am in, I don't get much room at ALL for freedom or creativity, and knowing that I can come home at the end of a day, sit in my office at home, surrounded by all the materials that I have amassed over time, and create whatever I want with no restrictions is the most inspirational thing! Even if I don't sell anything, just releasing my pent up creativity is enough for me!

4. Who is your favorite artist?
I don't necessarily have a favorite crafting artist, although, I have long considered my mother to be the Martha Stewart of the South (I am from Alabama), and she has always amazed me with her craftiness! She helped me bring the vision of my wedding to life about 3 years ago, and it just blew me away what we were able to do when we combined our talents. She is amazing. But as far as paper crafts go, there are hundreds of amazing card makers on Etsy that I am discovering daily, and I am enjoying the variety of art that can come from something as simple as a card.

Etsy shop of the month interveiw-randomcreative

1., How did you find Etsy?
One of my friends introduced me to Etsy after she saw me searching for buttons to buy online. She has a friend who sells on it and thought it would appeal to me.

2., How did you get into the craft/artwork that you do now? I've always loved beads but never did much with them besides stringing before this summer. A lot of my inspiration came from all of the wonderful jewelry that I saw on Etsy. I also saw a few pieces that I loved during a visit to the Amana Colonies ( I decided to challenge myself to learn how to make more interesting beaded jewelry. My inspiration from button bracelets came purely from all of the neat button creations that I saw on Etsy.

3., What inspires you? My fellow Etsy artists continue to be a source of inspiration. I love almost all colors and am constantly inspired by different color combinations that I see. I also love looking through jewelry instruction books for inspiration.

4., Who is your fav. artist? The two Etsy artists who have inspired me more than anybody else are Carol ( and MaryLou (
