Tuesday Meet and Greet

It's a new year and I am back on my blog schedule (although this year I am going to be a little more relaxed about keeping it, having tired of the stress when my life and my blog conflict!), and I am happy to be doing another Tuesday Meet and Greet of my wonderful and talented blog followers. I am grateful for all of my followers and this is my way of saying thank you. For my followers who do not have blogs or websites or shops to promote or any information that I can find online to share with my readers: I appreciate you just as much and hope you will forgive my inadequate research if there is something to be found that I just have not been able to discover.

Feyza is a busy lady! Three Etsy shops and two blogs, this textile designer from Paris must be very efficient! (A quality I SO admire and envy!) Preferring to work with 100% cotton and linen (although there are a few items that are outside of this fabric preference), her handmade bags, wallets, capes, pillows, pouches, coasters, and more are beautiful and functional, as are the tabs and labels she sells in one of her shops! Ikabags, MadameHoux and HobbyTime are her Etsy shops and Feyza's blogs are Handmade by Madame Houx and Madame Houx. Please take a look at her shops and blogs and bookmark and favorite them for future browsing!

Jill, who is a resident of the Philadelphia suburbs, but who considers Virginia and North Carolina home, is a long-time crafter. Introduced to sewing in high school, it didn't really "stick" until college and she has been sewing ever since for other people until their encouragement prompted her to open her Etsy shop, Sew Beans. (That sounds like a familiar story! :-)) Her beautiful items range from baby items to wine bags and fabric pottery---one of which I have featured in another blog post! You can follow her blog, Where is My Rotary Cutter and learn more about Jill and her life and activities and follow her on Twitter, too!!

I Like You World
! is based in Melbourne, Australia. An online store AND a brick and mortar store, I Like You scours the world for "the best handmade dresses, pocket watch necklaces and 2nd hand Camper & Melissa Shoes to showcase". There clothes are for "real people, real body shapes, and real clothing sizes", but I spied some really cute shoes and jewelry in their online store, as well! You can visit their blog and follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
