Meet the Artist and Giveaway: Winnie from Chickydoddle



I finally feel like I'm getting to know you.
One thing I know for sure, ya'll are crafty!
Which is why I know you are going to love this giveaway from Chickydoddle!

Winnie has graciously agreed to give one lucky winner:

Cute Vintage Style Matchbox Wooden Rubber Stamp Set - Horse and Bird
Buy it here
the Matchbox Stamp Set of their choice
AND 
Japanese Washi Masking Deco Tape: White Daisies on Blue
Buy it here
a Roll of the Washi Tape of their choice from Chickydoddle!

Yeah, so, I'm a little addicted to washi tape, and Winnie totally fed my addiction! She sent me 14 rolls of washi tape AND an envelope template. Of course, I immediately put them to work! 
First, I made a set of three washi tape "bunting" cards:

Some of you may remember awhile back I put up a mini envelope tutorial.
I made my own pattern, printed it on to cardstock and cut it out.
Well guess what, I've used those templates so much they've changed shape!
Winnie could not have sent the envelope template at a better time!
SOOOO much easier, check this out:

There is SO much more to see in Winnie's shop. Let's have a look whilst getting to know her :)

Q: Tell us a little about yourself
Craft or Wrapping Paper - Dessert and Music Notes
Buy it here
A:  My name is Winnie.  I'm a mother of 2 little kids ages 6 and 9.  I'm an expat from Hong Kong and my husband is an expat from Canada.  I was in the Information Technology field for over 10 years.  I became a stay at home mom after my first child was born. Now that the kids are a bit older, I decided to pursue a job that I can work from home and help supplement my family's income. I make jewelry as a hobby and I love unique stationery and craft supplies. 

Q: How did you get started on Etsy?
A:  I started on Etsy after I've accidentally came across the site while searching for supplies to make jewelry.  My first shop on Etsy is called "The MaKuCollection" where I sell my jewelry creations. 

I started my "Chickydoddle" shop earlier this year to bring craft supplies from Asia to the USA so we'll have a broader variety of products to choose from for our arts and crafts creations. 

Q: What do you think sets you apart from other suppliers on Etsy?
A:  I think what sets my business apart from other suppliers is that I donate a portion of my profit to public schools and non profit organizations. I've helped some local public schools to get books, overhead projectors, technology based learning equipment, etc.  I've also run fundraisers for my local YMCA.

Q: I've noticed you sell a few handmade magnets in your shop. Any other
hidden talents?
A:  I love to create!  Other than my Domino magnets and jewelry, I also create wooden photo cubes which I mount photos on hand stained 6x6 or 8x8 wooden cubes that can be used as wall hangings or self standing
decor. 

Cotton Ribbon - Bird Flower (1 yard)
Buy it here
Q: What is your favorite item in your shop?
A:  I love everything I sell.  To pick one particular group, I think the Japanese Washi Tapes would be my favorite.  I'm addicted to them.  You can do so many things with this beautiful tape.

Q: Any new items in the works?
A: I have made some new Domino magnets that I'll list very soon and I'm going to sell full rolls and sets of the Japanese Washi tapes later on next month.

English Tea Cups Domino Magnet
Buy it here
Q: What is the best compliment your shop has received?
A: My customers have been wonderful!  Their feedback always puts a smile on my face.  They love my products and the great customer service I provide.  Here is customer comment: "Now here's a dedicated
seller who goes the extra mile to give top notch customer service. And her inventory is simply smashing!"

Kawaii Transparent Moro Paper Doll Sticker Set (6 Sheets)
Buy it here

Q: Just for fun, where do you like to shop on Etsy?
A: Some of my personal favorites are imeondesign, beadandribbon, and NzLbags.
