Bella and Gracies Etsy Boutique {review and giveaway}

Bella and Gracies Etsy Boutique offers many wonderfully unique products for both children to adults! I really enjoyed browsing through the selection of adorable handmade dresses, tank tops, tutus, pettiskirts, and more! While taking in Bella and Gracies gallery, I myself was even inspired as an artist seeing the unique color combination and chic styles of apparel offered. I loved the professional photos and seeing the smiling faces of each of the children wearing the apparel was an added bonus!

Graciously, Karen Stinchfield the woman behind Bella and Gracies Etsy Boutique gave me the opportunity to review an adorable tank top dress for my two year old daughter. The dress I was sent is basically a black tank top with red and white polka-dot twirly skirt, and heart applique. Bottom of the dress is lined with white eyelet. It’s so simple yet absolutely adorable! The dress totally reminds me of Minnie mouse and though a little big at the moment it looks great on my daughter who is pretty small for her age!

I enjoyed getting to Karen through my Etsy meet and greet questions and hope you do too!

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been?

I have been on Etsy for a year now, but have really concentrated on my store for the past few months. I really enjoy sewing and creating new products and Etsy was a great venue for me to sell them as well.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?

I really enjoy seeing someone wearing my finished product. Sometimes I am not sure how it will look on, and when I see it I am so excited and inspired to do more.

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?

I am actually a math teacher, sewing was something I discovered a few years ago, and now I am addicted!

4. What inspires you?

Other designers inspire me. I can spend hours on Etsy looking at all the creative products. I am so amazed at the gathered talent Etsy has.

5.In five years you’d like to be…? In five years I will probably be doing the same thing but hope my store has grown. I really enjoy teaching and that is where my retirement fund will come from. In the same token I can’t imagine not creating and learning more and more about sewing.
