Girly Giveaway Sponsor #6: gingiber

I can't wait to see what ya'll have to say about the art from gingiber! I was delighted when Stacie told me she'd send me these:

As a new artist I am completely in awe of the intricacies of Stacies art. Like this one:

 I most likely originally stumbled upon gingiber when searching for owls. Have I already mentioned that I love that each owl "created" has a unique personality? Well, not only did Stacie create one or two, but a whole alphabetful of OOAK owls!

Here's a little orientation to Stacie 101:

Where did you learn your craft?
A: I am a mix of being self taught and also have a degree in graphic design. 

Q: Who (on Etsy) inspires you?

Q: What do you find most challenging about running your shop, and how do you overcome it?
A: The most challenging thing about running a shop is staying positive and focused, even during the slow times. Also, you have to be at least a season a head in your new product design to be ready for busy times like the holiday rush!

Q: What has been your biggest success so far?
A: Biggest success: my 2011 Owl Calendar! I kinda just doodled it up and listed it last year, thinking I would sell 1 or 2, and ended up selling 200+!

Q: What is the last thing you bought yourself on Etsy?
A: I bought 2 AmyMarcella Prints! So beautiful and botanical!
