Mother's Day Giveaway - Sponsored by The Fox Den on Etsy

Yesterday I mentioned in Goddess' birthday post, that there was an upcoming giveaway scheduled from The Fox Den, a shop on Etsy.

Well, here it is!

While window shopping on Etsy one day, I noticed this really adorable shirt that read,

"When God Made Me He Was Just Showing Off!"

I was in love and just had to find out more about this artist. We spoke and after learning all about her, I just had to share her talents with my readers. 

Dear Readers, let me introduce you to Dolores, the self proclaimed "Grandma Moses" of Etsy.

Dolores, tell us a little about yourself:
"First of all we moved to Florida about 5 Years Ago and at that time started doing Festivals and Craft Fairs. We kept adding things and changing things through those 5 years. Then at the end of 2008 we decided that it was just too much for us to load everything in the truck, set it all up and then have to take it all down! That is the reason I have my Etsy Shop!

My husband has also added his Beautiful Handcrafted Musical Instruments to the shop!

So this is a talented family! What are your specialties?
"The specialties are trying to find unique graphics for my shirts, totes and now the new items I have added. Also, Dennis's Beautiful Instruments are a Specialty!"

What do you love most about what you do?
"What I love most, is being able to meet people, through e-mail, from all around the world. I try to have contact with my customers throughout the whole process! Of course, I love just having the business and taking care of it!"

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
"In five years, I really don't know where I'll be. I hope to still be doing the same thing just as long as I am able! It may surprise you, but, I am a Great Grandmother!"
 Tote bags for every taste at only $6.98

What I Can Tell You:
Dolores is just the sweetest person and really underestimates herself when it comes to being internet savvy. She is doing a wonderful job and her shirts are amazing.  She started her shop the end 2008 and has over 148 sales so far. The shirt she sent Goddess, When God Made Me He Was Just Showing Off has been a hit. Whenever she wears it, it gets attention.  She wore it on her birthday and it looks fabulous with a tutu, jeans, stretch pants and even a skirt. I have had to wash it over 6 times since we received it already and it still looks brand new. She she first got it, she refused to take it off. She love the color and the angel wings. I personally love the saying because I couldn't agree more.
