Here is our second Etsy shop : CapriceCreations's
Big Welcome sign is featured on the front page of Caprice's shop on Etsy. She welcomes us into her lovely shop where everything is handcrafted by her personally. She specializes in hand-stamped stationery and home decor as well as hand painted items and embroidery. You will find a wide variety of items here so check her shop often!

PS. she is offering a free shipping only for the month of February, but don't tell her I told you.... shhhh it's a secret! :)

CapriceCreations is very passionate about her crafts and here is a little story from her on how she came up to be in business on Etsy:

As far back as I can remember, I have been creating something. As a child I was always making cards from construction paper. As I grew older, my grandmother taught me how to do many of the crafts that I enjoy today including embroidery, cross stitch, and oil painting. My mother taught me to sew and to pursue my dreams with all my heart.I am a wife, mother, teacher, artist, and volunteer firefighter. I am a strong supporter of Autism Awareness (my son has Asperger's syndrome) as well as MADD and the right to homeschool!My passion is creating! I love to paint, cross stitch, embroider, stamp, and scrapbook. My daughter is quickly following in her mother's footsteps! At the age of 4 she sold her first handmade soap. I was so proud of her!

I also had couple of questions for CapriceCreations and here are her answers:

What inspires you when you create your art pieces?
I get inspiration from everything! Books, magazines, nature, advertisements, even clothing
Do you tend to create in a particular color scheme? I love bright, bold colors, but I don't let that limit me. I can create some amazingly tranquil pieces as well.

How did you start your own business? I have always created stuff. But once I was grown, it was really my Mother-in-law that made me realize that I other people might be interested in what I create as well.
