The July feature seller is Julie Rose from meiguidesigns


The feature seller for July is Julie Rose and her shop is called Mei Gui Designs, Mei Gui is chinese for "rose". Julie creates a variety of items such as shoulder bags which are hand knitted by her and jewelry. She lives in Dayton Ohio with her husband and two daughters which they adopted from China. This adoption has brought them a very special connection with China.

How did you get started as a designer?

I work full time as a reading specialist in the public school system and have my Etsy shop on the side. It fullfils my need to express myself creatively. I have always wanted to have a little shop of all handmade items and Etsy has made that possible for me. I love making things and working at various crafts. I got this mostly from my mom who was very crafty.

What inspires you to create?

I would be miserable if I was not able to create. I need it in my life. It's part of who I am. However, being with other artists and seeing beautiful art (no matter what kind), does inspire me. It makes me want to learn more and get better at it.

How do you get the word out about your shop and art?

I spend a lot of time promoting in the forums on Etsy. I love to make treasuries and feature other sellers/artists. It's great to connect with them and let them know they have been featured and I get featured in others' treasuries as well. I also use Facebook to post my items and network.

Julies shop is at
www.meiguidesigns.etsy.com and you can also see her art at www.craftjuice.com
