Welcome back EIC friends! 


We have a great shop to check out this week--Glow Girl. What a fun way to carry around your coupons! And Glow Girl also sells tote bags and snack baggies. FUN! Check these out:::



Here is a bit of information about Glow Girl:: My inspiration for starting this business was - I'd lost a great 15 yr position that I thought I'd be retiring with...was in a panic realizing that as a 50 yr old, I was going up for jobs against younger and better educated folks than me. The challenge was on! I decided to step out of the corporate world and return to my crafty roots (I had a successful crafts business in the 80's). I bought a sewing machine, learned how to sew...and fell upon some cool upholstery fabrics and starting making grocey/tote bags. Was starting to successfully sell them at craft fairs and told my husband I'd start clipping coupons to help save money...didn't like the store bought ones and designed this for myself, and they quickly became my best selling items! Had a set-back in late 2009, breast cancer, and my etsy store became my sole source of income, and also provided me with some peace of mind as I spent almost a year battling cancer. I missed two holiday seasons of craft shows b
ut etsy was a godsend for me, both emotionally and financially. I'm now fully back on my feet, planning shows for 2011 and getting ready to expand my lines and soar!

Our sponsor this week is The Stamping BoutiqueThe Stamping Boutique has digital and rubber stamps for sale--as well as a challenge site {click HERE}! These stamps are super cute--whimsical and adorable!! Here is some information about The Stamping Boutique:: 'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique.
My team and I are very happy to sponsor Etsy Inspired. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Co. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.
