Giveaway from RBK Creations


Thank you to both Nicki and Sonja for the great giveaways! I thought I would show my appreciation to everyone by doing a giveaway of my very own! Take a minute and read the interview. Many chances to win so make sure to check it out!

_____________________________________

Introduce yourself
My name is Ariela and I run RBK Creations with my mother, Brenda. I have three dogs, Rascal, Roxanne and Remy. I am originally from South Dakota but moved down to Texas a little over a year ago after I graduated college. I have always been the crafty type and I have finally found a way to express my creativity on a consistent basis.

Tell us a little bit about your shop
I opened up shop on Etsy in the early part of August 2008. The store has gone through a lot of change but I am very happy with how it is today. I sell button bouquets and a few felt items here and there. A few different button creations (button trees) and supplies slip into the shop on occassion as well!

How did you get started on Etsy?
My mother actually introduced me to Etsy. She found a link on a blog she read. We decided to open up a shop just for fun. Who knew that it would ever turn into something more!

Where on the internet can you be found?
Main Shop:

What is your favorite product in your shop? Or what is the best seller?
I love the bridal bouquets and the button trees. My favorite bouquet to create was a Periwinkle and Daisy bouquet: http://www.flickr.com/photos/abonen/3763519281/in/set-72157621743796573/

When you are not being crafty, what can you be found doing?
I spend a lot of time being crafty! It always seems I am working on something new or finishing up an order. I can be found spending time with the pups, catching up with friends and working on North Dallas Etsy! What a great group of ladies!

What are your short-term and long-term goals for your shop?
Short-Term: Launching a new website (the blog will be transferred over there as well), getting a few new items up in the shop and getting more organized! As far as Long-Term goals I would love to have an online store on the website and get my items in a few boutiques.
