Personalize It Makes Heirlooms Created With Love - Baby Giveaway!!!!!!

I am thrilled and honored to host my 3rd Etsy Artist this week.

Dear Readers,

Let me introduce you to Creative Mama, from Pittsburgh, the creator of Personalize It, Ms. Jen!

Jen is a busy little bee, creating, working and, the mom of a toddler. How does she do it?! I suggested that she write a book because that is one heck of a balancing act.

What I loved about Jen's shop was that she creates "mommy approved" items that work for her at home. All her items can be personalized and she loves creating custom orders. What perfect gift ideas for the New Mommy or New Home Owner. 

When my daughter was born I received a receiving blanket with her name and birth date on it. It is one of my favorite items and I can't imagine a time when I will dispose of it.

The item that caught my eye was her personalized receiving blankets. They are adorable and her best sellers.

Sweet right!?

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to Jen.

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

"I am a CPA and a mom of a 2 year old. I work part time and stay home the rest of the time. I started this little 'hobby' of mine just for fun in my 'spare time'. I love sports, especially 
hockey, the beach, and coffee!"

How long has your Etsy shop been online or why did you start your Etsy shop?
"I opened my Etsy shop in the fall of 2009 - but I have been selling via other outlets for quite a while before that. I also sell on ebay, craft shows, and through family and friends. I started my Etsy shop because I love the ease of managing it and also love finding other unique items to buy on Etsy. I probably buy as much as I sell!"

Where do you get your inspiration?

"All of my friends are having babies. I wanted something unique but useful to give as gifts.I love practical things but still wanted the gift to be fun. I'm having so much fun creating new things to personalize."

Bib Link

What do you love most about what you do?
"I love designing things that people love, that fit their personality, and that showoff their new baby's name. I spent an entire pregnancy deliberating over my son's name and I just love showing it off!"

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
'I'm too busy loving the moment to worry about the future!"
Jen has been gracious enough to allow one of my readers the choice of the burp cloths or Thermal Receiving Blankets.
