|Etsy Buy Handmade tisascreations|
My name is Tisa, mother of 2, and wife to an awesome, supportive hubby! I have a twin sister, my number 1 fan and supporter (well she and my husband are tied as #1) I love anything to do with paper, I create hand stamped cards and personalized stationary. I describe myself as fun, honest, sassy, classy and one of a kind!
How long have you been crafting and what made you decide to sell?
I purchased my first scrapbook 20 years ago (man, that makes me feel old). I've made candles and I've completed several oil paintings. Every paining in my house - I've created! But,I've always loved all kinds of paper. About 5 years ago I started to make my own cards by rubber stamping. My friends and family then started asking me to create cards and invitations for them- so I did. With the support of my husband and sister, I decided to sell. I never thought I could sell any of my items. Currently my customers are mostly local.
What inspires you to create?
I get inspired by everything...fabrics,nature, kids - I can get ideas from almost anything.
How do you organize your time?
Organize my time? Is that really something that can be done? Just kidding. My time is very limited. I'm currently working full time, serve on a PTA Executive Board and starting this business. So I create whenever I get a free moment. I'm always carrying my computer or my sketch book - EVERYWHERE!
How do you promote your work and where can we find it?
I promote my work by signing up for craft fairs, word of mouth and of course etsy. You can find me at:
What are your business plans for the remainder of 2008?
Business plan for the rest of the year...I plan to network as much as possible. I would like to out source all my printing as well as start to offer letter pressed cards and stationary.
Do you have a blog for people to keep in touch with you?
