Etsy Artist Feature & Giveaway: Glitter Cult

Read the original article here and enter to win!

Glitter Cult

 

 

Today’s featured artist, Emily from Glitter Cult, describes herself as “an aspiring designer working in corporate America while my husband puts the finishing touches on his engineering degree.” She will be returning to school in a little over a year for a degree in Industrial Design, but in the meantime she dabbles in “Interior Design, Wedding and Event Design, and chic crafts for [her] life and home.”

 

“For the past year or so I’ve been trying to find a creative outlet for myself. I taught myself to knit, volunteered to design friends’ weddings, redesigned nearly every room in my house, and made small gifts for my friends. At Christmas I did a fundraiser at work for our annual Adopt-A-Family program where I made and sold coffee cup sleeves. That gave me the idea to open my Etsy shop.”

 

I absolutely love the photography setup here too!

I always am interested in how people are promoting their shops.  Because Glitter Cult is only a little over a month old, this is not a full-time job for Emily just yet, and a lot of artists are in the same boat.  I definitely am, and at this point, I can’t spend a ton of money on advertising that just “may” turn into profit.  Considering that, I am constantly asking others what marketing tools they are using and what they have found effective.  Emily uses Facebook to promote Glitter Cult, particularly advertising her new items there.  Finally, she has a blog via wordpress: Glitter Cult.

 



“I love making glass bottle oil lamps. They’re so versatile and there are practically no limitations on how one could decorate them.” 

 

Glitter Cult accepts all major credit cards, as well as Etsy gift cards, and ships via USPS 1 to 2 business days following your order date.  Contact Emily with requests for custom orders, and she will create a special listing for you.

Etsy Artist Feature

Katherine Mendieta Cards & Design

Today I’d like to introduce Katherine Mendieta, a 26 year old Art graduate from the University of Iowa.  She currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband Mitch and just opened up her Etsy shop this February!

“I love designing cards almost as much as I love sending them to friends and family. As much as I love social media, I miss the old school days when snail mail was a bigger deal. So after some friends encouraged me, I opened up shop!”

 

 

Though new to the Etsy world, Katherine has jump-started her marketing, posting links and discount codes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  Before she moved to Minnesota, she worked at a photography studio and learned “that people are far more likely to trust the word of someone they know, or a trusted blogger they connect with, than an advertisement.”  Because of that, she’s relying on word of mouth and some giveaways to get her name out there.

how cute is this!

When I asked Katherine what he favorite thing to make was, I was not at all surprised with her answer after taking a look at her shop! “Fun, quirky cards that make people smile.”  She also loves doing custom work, so readers, you can keep that in mind too!

 

My Favorite:

You can connect with Katherine through Twitter and Pinterest, and of course at her Etsy shop KM Cards & Design.

You can also enter the Rafflecopter Giveaway below to win a set of personalized stationary up to a $25 value! The winner can choose their design from any of the sets posted at KM Cards & Design!
