Giveaway from Katemajoie - Letterpress notecards or sign



Hi all. I am back to the giveaways on the blog now. I have officially started my job and enjoy it. Things are starting to get back to normal again. So much was all happening at the same time that the blog and the giveaways had to be put on hold. This week's giveaway is from the sweetest person ever! Check out a little more about Katrina and her shop katemajoie
___________________________________________________________

Introduce yourself:
I'm Katrina, designer/printer behind Ma Joie Press. Last year was a big one for me. I graduated college with a degree in Art, I married my high school sweetheart, Tyler, and I started MJP. It's been a crazy blur, but I'm having a great time.

Tell us a little bit about your shop:
I print for special occasions, so, the majority of my shop is wedding and baby designs. It's so wonderful to hear from people who are expecting a baby or preparing for their wedding. It's the happiest part of my job.

How did you get started on Etsy?
It was love at first sight for me and Etsy! I happened across the site while searching for a specific and unusual Christmas present a couple of years ago, and it literally changed my life. I set goals to start my business with hopes of having a shop someday. After I became what I considered 'skilled enough' in my craft to sell, I jumped in head first. It was the perfect next step - inexpensive to start up, and chock full of like-minded personalities. I can't even count the opportunities (big and small) that have come my way through Etsy.



Where on the internet can you be found?
You can find Ma Joie Press and me on the main website, the MJP blog, the Etsy shop and of course on Twitter

Favorite product in your shop?
It's hard to pick a favorite product because I put so much time into designing them all, picking colors and printing them. But, if I have to pick, I'd probably say the "Not all those who wander are lost" print. It is just a happy reminder that, though I'm not on the same path as everyone else, I'm on the right path for me.

___________________________________________________
