It is a new week and a new giveaway! I have a great giveaway from another fellow North Dallas Etsy Team Member. She has some great wedding items in her shop but can be used for just about anything! The item up for grabs has so many uses, not just for a wedding! Take a minute and read her story and check out her shop.
I, Sonja, own Just Wright Designs®, LLC with my amazing husband, Jeff. We have six animals, two yellow labs, one dachshund and three cats. I was raised in Florida but now live in Texas. I love beaches and all things tropical. I love to entertain, decorate and paint anything. I love weddings and parties and would get married over and over (to the same man of course) if I had the money.
Tell us a little bit about your shop
My Just Wright Boutique Etsy shop is a work in progress. I’ve been buying Etsy items for years but just opened my shop in 2008. Just Wright Boutique offers Personally Stylish Keepsakes for any occasion. Currently you will find mostly wedding items, but stay tuned, we have more to come.
How did you get started on Etsy?
Back in 2006 one of my employees started selling her artwork on Etsy. She encouraged me to open a shop but I hesitated because we had three websites already. I did however start purchasing cool things on Etsy right away. Finally I took the plunge and opened a shop in 2008.
Where on the internet can you be found?
What is your favorite product in your shop? Or what is the best seller?
WOW, I have lots of favorites but right now I think this item is my favorite because I’ve really been liking this color combination lately:
When you are not being crafty, what can you be found doing?
Basically I’m a workaholic. If I’m not working I can be found cleaning the house, washing the dishes or doing the laundry. When I do take a break I enjoy bike riding, boating and pretty much anything outside. When I vacation I love the tropics and nice cool drink under sun as the waves hit the shore.
What are your short-term and long-term goals for your shop?
Short term I would like to get more products added and develop a process for listing items and keeping things consistent. Long term I would like to open two more Etsy shops for JWD Paperie and Celebration Plates.
Anything else you want to share
I’m so happy to be a part of the North Dallas Etsy Team and I’m excited as this Team starts a new journey. As a team I think we can all help one another and really promote our hand made goods. I love hand made products and encourage everyone to consider purchasing something made by a talented artist.
