Hello my friends!!!!
Christmas period is over...yes I know! But I have to say that it was fun preparing the gifts for my beloved and the orders for my shop. And it was fun because I have discovered a new way to create my personal wishing cards and the Thank you cards for EfZinCreations.... something like scrap booking!
Christmas mood... cards in red and green with glitter on them. Valentines mood... cards full of hearts. Spring mood (I am preparing them this period)...flowers and bright colors! I could do anything I like!
How? ok... I will tell you...because of Sarah from ahueofduckeggblue! Yeap, a great new friend from etsy. She had already created for my shop a custom olive wood stamp, which I truly love! But also checking her shop is really amazing how many new paper crafts you can do for yourself, your business, your wedding, your friends. Too many ideas, too many colors, too many patterns! I love her shop and I love her work!
It is just great that you can give a personal touch in your wedding with a wishing cards designed just for you and your hubby. Or organize your kid's birthday party and add a really special note to cupcakes or party's decoration! Just use your imagination and Sarah will create anything for you!
Ok... I have to stop... Please let me introduce you Sarah... The Paper Craft and Stamp Lady!!!
I'm Sarah, originally from the UK and I've been living in Greece now for more years than I care to remember!
I became a stamp maker after being a keen stamp user living in a country (Greece!) where it was, at one point, almost impossible to buy nice birthday cards to send home to family and friends - therefore I decided to make my own and got myself some great stamps from the US to help me out. I then got into scrapbooking via stamping. I loved the versatility of a handful of stamps and ink pads - I added a few embellishments: stitching , buttons, ribbons, but the stamp work was the main attraction.
One thing lead to another, and as I had a job that meant I was away from home most of the day, I though it was up to me to make the change enabling me to be at home with my 3 children more. So, I did just that - I decided to develop my passion and instigate designing and making my own stamps, I also loved the idea that my stamps could be mounted on beautiful olive wood, which is of course abundant here.
I am around more to participate in family goings-on, but still there are not enough hours in the day! However, I have a great feeling of satisfaction from my turn in career, doing things at my pace and most of all loving what I do. The great handmade community on sites like Etsy is the cherry on the cake with doors opening in ways you can't imagine.
I love the fact that stamps lend themselves to so many occasions: parties, weddings, business, craft projects and so on... I'm never short of an idea and am currently working hard to make stamps better known in Greece where the word stamp still mostly only conjures up the red-tape variety!
Thank you Sarah! It is beautiful to know something more about you!
