Etsy- Flutter Bye Dreams Review and Giveaway



n510453187_1497586_7147624I’d like to introduce you to a wonderful Etsy shop I happened across this summer. Jodi is the owner of Flutterbye Dreams, an Etsy shop featuring items for those special  children in each of our lives.

A few of the items that you’ll find over at FlutterBye Dreams include;

Clips – In every color of the rainbow and offered in a variety of sizes. Great for all ages!
Felt Food– Fun shaped Cookies, Pepperoni  Pizza, Tea Bags for those special tea parties, and let’s not forget the full breakfast meal!
Finger Puppets – Dragons, Polar Bears, Ghost, and more…these finger puppets you’ll come to adore!
Mitten Clips – A wonderful way to not lose those mittens this fall and winter.
Tooth Fairy Pillows- A unique way to cherish those special tooth losing moments in life!

I quite enjoyed getting to know Jodi and browsing through her enchanting little store filled with items that are guaranteed to bring smiles to faces of those both young and old. Now, I have interviewed her for my Etsy meet and great!

il_430xN.789138431.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been? I’ve been running my Etsy shop Flutterbye Dreams for 1 1/2 years, after some encouragement from friends who thought I should give it a try.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products? I love receiving feedback from my customers. Seeing children playing with my products or wearing hair clips I make puts a smile to my face.il_430xN.54646283

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do? I’m currently a full time student finishing up my education degree.  Most recently I have become a Stampin’ Up rep and I am absolutely loving the new adventure that it brings.

4. What inspires you? My daughter inspires my passion for crafts. She is five years old and she quite often is the one who gives me new ideas. She helps me pick out new ribbon and also gives me new ideas for finger puppets and tooth fairy pillows.

5. In five years you’d like to be…? In five years, I hope that I will have a full time teaching position at the elementary level. I also hope that I am as active in crafts as I am now. I would love it i I was able to sell some of my products that I make in a store.

100_0591My final thoughts: I was sent a 4-pack of clippies watermelon in color along with an adorable clippie adorned with a lady bug to review. My daughter enjoys wearing her hair clippies from FlutterBye Dreams, as you can see in the photos included in this review! These clips are incredibly cute and made exceptionally well. Each clip has a a little rubber lining on the inside that keeps the clip from falling out of thin hair.

I almost couldn’t believe how affordable these clips were at only $5.00 for set of four, where I’ve seen $8.00 for just one!  You can view more clippies like the lady bug one in my daughter’s photo  at FlutterBye Dreams’s Facebook Fan Page.

I’m a fan and definitely will be back for one of those adorable tooth fairy pillows, several sets of the adorable felt food, and fun themed clips to match my daughter’s apparel.

How would you like to win a set of hair clips and a set of finger puppets of your own? Jodi has generously offered one of my readers this opportunity.
