Market Place Monday
Every Monday, the etsy group I belong to spotlights and promotes members of our group. We have a talented bunch of ladies at the olde farmhouse. My feature artist today is Becky of WVluckygirl. Dontcha just love her name? Becky says she chose it cause as the saying goes "if you're lucky enough to live in the mountains you're lucky enough" and since she lives in the WV hills, she must be a very, very lucky gal!
Becky has been selling on etsy since December 2009 after a customer asked why she didn't do etsy. So Becky let her fingers do the walking and the rest is history. She said she was pleasantly surprised to see all the handmade things that were offered for sale on etsy.
As you can see Becky offers a little bit of everything. She loves making prim decor and occasionally throws in a little shabby chic as well. I just love these labels....great for making those potion bottles that are so hot right now and perfect for the upcoming Halloween season.
Becky has been crafting as long as she can remember. Her mother would allow Becky to help when she was creating something and once Becky learned how to use the sewing machine, she was hooked! LOL! Inspiration for her craft comes form anywhere and everything. And like any true artists, she takes her customers ideas and turns them into works of art.
Becky's favorite piece in her shop is the framed stitchery in the first picture. Simply your life, believe in your dreams, See with your heart, Know what it means. What a lovely sentiment. You can find Becky's wonderful work on etsy and on ebay. Just click on the links and take a peek....you won't be disappointed.
