*FEATURED ARTIST of the week* ~~MyissaG~~

I recently made a treasury in homage of a select few of the many people I've met and fell in love with on Etsy. These people invigorate me to rediscover myself every chance I can get. Here is one of those remarkably talented, extraordinarily compassionate and positively inspiring people that I'm honored to have in my life.


Q. What do you create?

I make handmade crocheted items for you and your home. I love making afghans for people to cuddle up with. I also enjoy making useful items for around the home. Things like dishcloths, coasters and bath and body items.

Q. What led you to take up your craft?

My mom, and my Grandma both crocheted. I grew up with hand crocheted items and enjoyed them. Crochet is also great stress relief for me.

Q. Which part of your work do you most enjoy?

I love seeing the finished item. It is always amazing what you can make out of a ball of yarn. :)

Q. Which part do you find hardest?

Finding the time to make all the items that I want to make.

Q. Where do you get your inspiration?

Sometimes from around the farm. Sometimes I will be outside and see something that makes me want to make something to match. Like there will be times when the sky will look certain colors. And I want to put them into something. :) I love to make items that people will find useful and be able to use for a long time to come.

Q. Do you participate in any etsy groups, and if so, which ones?

I do participate in a couple. 
They are Etsy friends and Etsy hookers

Q. What's one material your shop can't live without?

Yarn :)

Q. What is your favorite item that you have purchased off of Etsy?

This cute little pocketbook. I use it all the time.

Q. If I could sell one item from my shop today, it would be...

It would be my stained glass afghan. It is a unique
afghan made with many vibrant colors.

Q. If I had enough money to pick one item on my wishlist from any shop on etsy to buy, it would be...

This gorgous quilt. I just love the way it is put together. :)

Q. What are the top three favorite items currently listed in your store?

Chester The Bear
True Love Crocheted Afghan
Dusted Rose Shoulder Wrap

Q. What undiscovered artisans would you recommend the world to know?

She has a beautiful shop just filled with many nice things. :)

Q. What is the best advice you have ever received?

Some of the best advise I have received is:
Get involved in the forums. 
Get to know people around Etsy.
Try to list items as frequently as possable.
