Getting to Know MariaSoleil

Christmas Gift Tags in Pomegranate from MariaSoleil

MariaSoleil is an Etsy shop filled with paper goodies like cards and gift tags with a style self described as happy and whimsical, yet functional. Locally, you'll be able to visit her next weekend at Our Lady of Consolation Catholic Church in Rockford, MI on November 20th. We asked Celene to answer a few questions - so let's hear from the artist herself!

On her craft and supplies - I love to frequent scrapbooking stores (but don't scrapbook!)  I am a paper and rubber stamp addict.  If I never bought another supply I could keep my shop alive for years.

Her current project - I am getting Christmas tags and cards ready to put into my shop.  I also have a nice stock of small altered clipboards that need to get photographed and added.

Outside of Etsy - I love going to the beach in the summer and hibernating in the winter. Some might say that I have an addiction to Disneyworld.  I love being a mom and trying to keep up with all that comes with that.

A few words of advice for teammates - Come chat in the team forum with us!  Just jump in there and make some noise so we can get to know you.  I have learned a lot of tips there, especially about shows and general etsy information.  I think to get something out of being on a team you need to participate.  Plus, it's fun!

And a random factoid - I was born left handed, on Sweetest Day to 2 crazy hippies back in the '70s.  I have evolved from macrame, latch hooked rugs, and batik to where I am now.

You do beautiful work -- even if you are left handed! :)
