Julie Hanan Design - You Only Get One First Impression

One look at Julie Hanan Design's Etsy shop and you will know what quality, unique and fresh invitations look like! Julie creates beautiful invitations for any event and also offers smart solutions for your business! Julie graduated from the University of Illinois in 2007 with a BFA in Industrial Design. This degree afforded her the necessary tools to be able to skillfully nd professionally create amazing custom invitations that could double as art!

Her first wedding invitations were created in 2009 as a favor to some friends that were getting married. This venture proved to be, not only successful, but very enjoyable for Julie. Word quickly got around about the wonderful work that she did and she was soon making a career out of her hobby. Her love of her work is evident in the pieces she creates. Here is what Julie has to say about her work:

" I treat my work as a collaboration with the client. My hands may put the product together; but the style, look and feel reflect your ideas and influence. After all, you have only one opportunity to set the stage for your day to offer your guests a vision of your unique celebration. With so many amazing paper and embellishment options, it only makes sense to create an introduction that is truly customized. My goal is to work as a team to create the perfect tone and theme for your event. It should be special, memorable and give your guests something to look forward to."

The First Featured Shop - E5 Jewelry, Art for the Soul!

 e5jewelry is a shop that carries One of A Kind Handmade Jewelry by Deborah Lee Taylor from Marietta, GA. Her work has an organic, unique feel to it. Some pieces hold symbolic meanings for the wearer. She uses mixed metals and combines stones, beads and leather. Here is how she feels about her jewelry:

"e5 is One of a Kind Handmade Jewelry

I create pieces that hold a symbolic meaning by intention, words or the metaphysical properties of the stone used. A one of a kind piece of jewelry is like finding a lost treasure waiting to be discovered by it's wearer.

I believe when a stone, crystal or piece of art resonates with you it speaks to your soul. The beauty that comes from that is magical, timeless and unique, as the art itself.

It is my wish for you to enjoy this art by making it your own."

I am featuring her shop as my first on this blog because I wanted to share with you the FREE custom Ring giveaway she is having! One lucky winner will recieve one of her copper jeweled bands with your choice of either a ruby, sapphire or natural turquoise stone made in your ring size! (To view photos of these rings, see her e5photos on her page) All YOU need to do is "like" her Facebook page! While you're there, be sure to read about her inspiration for creating these beautiful rings in her "notes" tab. For a peek at some photos from her Etsy shop, check out the Featured Etsy Shop page!

Stay Tuned For Coming Attractions

I recently opened up shop on Etsy and I have met all sorts of wonderful people there. I haven't been there long but I already can tell that it is something I will be sticking with for a long time to come. I, like many of the other shopowners, spend atleast a little time each day trying to get the word out there so that people will come to Etsy and have a look at our shops. We are all passionate about what we do, whether it is handmade goods or a carefully cultivated collection of vintage items that we braved the swap meets to find. I decided to create this blog in order to offer another venue for online shop owners, like those at Etsy, to promote their shops and products. I will periodically be posting features on certain Etsy shops and also hightlighting specific products that are especially fantastic! Please subscribe to this blog in order to be notified when new info is posted and be sure to leave comments on the featured shops or products so that the shop owner can get some feedback! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope to see you around again soon! :)
