ElizaGraham - A Valentine Feature and Giveaway
ElizaGraham is an absolutely PRECIOUS clothing line for your little one. I'm loving that ElizaGraham has clothing for both boys and girls - a little something for everyone! An experienced Etsy seller, Marni, the creator of ElizaGraham and former owner of Blossom Bebe, is known for her positive feedback, custom designs and unique look. You'll definitely want to check out her shop for one of a kind items, especially for the upcoming holidays - Valentine's Day, Easter, birthday, etc. She'll be adding "Big Sister"/"Big Brother" and "Little Sister"/"Little Brother" shirts to her collection soon, so you'll want to watch for those! When asked to tell us a little more about her shop, this is what Marni had to say:
My shop name began as blossom bebe. When I had my little girl about 1 1/2 years ago, she was bald as all get out. I felt she needed some sort of bow in her hair but wasn't willing to do the "velcro" or the "toothpaste" trick so I started making bands and beanies with flowers and bows. That is where "blossom" bebe came from. Well, I got a little tired of the bow business and started doing my appliqued shirts. I felt blossom bebe didn't fit anymore and wanted something a little more personal. Graham is my son's middle name and Elizabeth is my daughters.....hence elizaGraham.
I started sewing a little over a year ago. Self taught and all.
Your Favorite Item:
Honestly, I don't really have one favorite item. Pretty much all the shirts I make to sell are with my kids in mind, so, I really enjoy all of them.
Your New Ideas:
I do have some new items in the works. More birthday items. Letter shirts. Big/little sis/bro shirts. I always have something new in mind....just not enough time to create it.
I have been married for 8 years. We have two beautiful children, 4-year-old Parker and 1 1/2-year-old Patten. I never, ever used to classify myself as "crafty." I'm not sure what came over me but when my daughter was born, I just got into creating. Sewing is my outlet. I work from home as a medical transcriptionist early in the morning, then am a mom and a wife. Creating and sewing is my way to de-stress! I LOVE to create items for my children and ultimately my customers. It is so completely rewarding.....to make something from start to finish and then get to see them wear it. Selling it is only a bonus. I LOVE my customers on etsy. I love going to check my email and seeing that message that you've had a sale! It is so exciting seeing that people love your stuff as much as you do.
Your thoughts on Valentine's Day:
We do celebrate Valentine's day. Nothing elaborate but our kids get a little gift and card at breakfast on V-day, just like I did when I was a little girl. Jason and I usually go to dinner or have a nice dinner at home......nice and romantic....with 2 crazy kids running around....:)
