Guest this week: Happybee

This week we have a giveaway from an Italian shop on Etsy: Happybee! She decided to donate one of her lovely pouches... but first a short interview, to know something more of Happybee...

1- Tell us something about yourself
My name's Daniela and I'm italian.
I love all things are handmade and I love every kind of crafts!
I love create things for me, my friends, family and also for my customers!
In the afternoon I work like a part time secretary and so...as my job is not very creative...I "need" to do crafts and let my mind free...
It's amazing...you can start with some scraps of fabrics and end with a fabulous item that can be a quilt, a pouch, a pillow...the secret is don't stop your imagination and creativity!

-2 WHAT IS YOUR CRAFT? HOW DID YOU LEARN?
Well...my craft is basically sewing but I also love to do knitting and crocheting.
I started sewing making quilts...I'm a quilter and I love to make quilts, wall hanging, table runners...
I took a class for learn the basics skills of patchwork and quilting and...after this...I learned all by myself...
I discovered that the sewing's world is amazing and there are every day new things that you can sew!!! LOL!!!
So...I bought patterns, books, followed internet tutorials and...I learned to sew!

3- HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE YOUR CRAFT?
I started to make quilts about 7 years ago and then...I never stopped...
I can't stay too much time far away from my sewing machine!!!

4. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW seller?
The better advice that I can give to a new seller is to create things not only with the hands but also with the heart...
If you love what you are creating and you do your best in making it, surely the buyers will "feel" this and appreciate your work and will "find" you, your products and your shop!
And...don't forget...promote!!!

5. What are your favorite shops or blogs?
mmm...there are tons of wonderful shops on Etsy and...I really can't choose just one...

6- anything else you want to share with us

I love travel, I love meet new friends, I love challenges and...I can't live without my sewing machine, internet, Etsy...LOL!!!!
And...of course...without my family...

My favorite item ... I'm leaning towards the Pretty Panda pouch. Although the Purple Bird pouch is pretty cute too. I love how you embroidered the words "panda" and "bird" onto them. It reminds me of the worksheets I give my students!
