Meet the Artist: Alyssa from janejoss

Please give a warm welcome to Alyssa from janejoss. She and her partner (and sister-in-law) Joslyn are donating these wonderful decorative fabric branches to the Family Tree Giveaway!

Alyssa sent these to me to check out before they head for a new home. I love that they are wrapped like a bouquet of fresh flowers, so clever! I can tell you first hand, these treasures are carefully made with precision and great attention to detail, and even more beautiful than in the pictures!

Alyssa and Joslyn's shop is full of fun fabric leaves on a variety of items including these wreaths:

These cute little potted plants would make the perfect gift in place of fresh flowers.
They last longer, they can be shipped (much cheaper!) and they've got so much personality!

I think this set was the first I fell in love with, great contrast and simplicity:

Be sure to head over and see what all janejoss has to offer, there is so much variety! In the mean time, let's get to know Alyssa:

Q: How did you get started on Etsy?  
A: It was suggested by a friend when we first started our business.  It was the absolute perfect place for us and our products.  We had a custom request within 20 minutes of our first listing!
Q: What is your favorite item in your shop, and why?  
A: My favorite item in my shop right now is our green zebra print aloe plant. It makes me smile every time I make one.  It's such a great gift and the perfect size!
Q: What inspires you?  
A: My biggest inspiration would have to be fabric.  My favorite step in my creative process is finding that perfect fabric that inspires a new plant.
Q: Do you have any advice for new sellers?  
A: My biggest advice is to continually strive to improve your shop through new products, new/improved descriptions and tags, and improved photography.  We owe a huge amount of our success to treasury inclusions.  Good photos are key!
Q: What are you most proud of in regards to your shop? 
A: I am the most proud of our customer feedback.  There is nothing better than a customer RAVING about your work.  It makes all the hard work worth it!

I asked Alyssa to send some pics:

You should add these to your store photos, just amazing! It makes me want to fill my dining room/office with flowers! How about you?
