NEW Marketplace Friday Shop Features!

Good morning all! I hope you are all awake this morning! Again, I have another couple shops that I will feature on today's post and invite all of you to come and see what these shops contain and to meet the artists! Today's features are Sugar Creek Hollow and Painted Kreations. I hope you enjoy!

The first person I will be featuring is Kimberly of Sugar Creek Hollow:

Here is a shop where I'm sure you will find something that will help you with your home decor. This crafter does so many different crafts it makes you wonder how some people get all the talent! She makes soy candles with awesome fragrances such as crunch pumpkin cake...yummmmy, to beautiful crochet doilies to knitted kitchen towels, to absolutely ..must have afghans! She creates beautiful blog banners and templates and has quite a variety to pick from..and even makes canned goodies , like grandma used to make, such as peach and tomato jam. Kimberly is talented beyond belief and can make you home a cozy, warm, primitive paradise from its look , to its fragrance and to even the canned foods that her shop contains...not to mention has the skill to create a blog that looks and feels like you have always wanted! All of this variety that she has in her shop and will keep you coming back for days just to make up your mind what you want first from her shop collection! Take a look at a few of my favorites!

I've never seen so many wonderful things all in one shop before! She has talents that I could ONLY WISH I had. Take some time and meet this awesome artist and see what her answers are to some questions that she had answered and will give you a little insight to the mind of the multi talented crafter!

What is the name of your Etsy shop? And why did you choose this name?
Sugar Creek Hollow. One of my favorite places to visit here in Ohio is in fact,
Sugar Creek, Ohio. Often referred to as “Little Switzerland”, it’s in the midst of Amish Country. And I’m very fond of Amish crafts and a simpler way of life, which I try to bring to my own shoppe.

How long have you been selling on Etsy?
I’ve been on Etsy for about a year now, but Sugar Creek Hollow has only been open for about a month now.

What type of items do you offer?
Hand-poured Soy Candles, crocheted lace doilies, cotton dishcloths, an occasional crocheted afghan when I have the time, graphics, and I just recently added items from the kitchen such as jams and relishes.

How long have you been crafting?
Well over 25 years now
Who or What inspires you?

Probably my greatest inspiration has been my grandmother who passed on several years ago. She taught me at an early to crochet and sew, as well as how to make jams and butters. But when it comes to our candles, my youngest son is the true inspiration. He has mild Autism, and an obsession for smells. Making candles has become a family event that even he can take part in.

What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
I would have to say it’s my lace doilies. Creating these has taught me a great deal about patience. And I like to think that when one is purchased, it becomes that person’s next family heirloom.

Other places where you can be found?
Etsy Shoppe:
Blog: Sugarcreek

You can see that her grandmother had a BIG part in planting the seed for creating as she had done during her lifetime and taught her some much respected talents such as making jams , crocheting and sewing which is one of the best gifts as grandmother/mother can pass onto her children/grandchildren! Her son's involvement of candle making is a noteworthy reason to add this into her crafting selection due to the benefits to her son! Bravo to your son to pickout some pretty yummy sounding fragrances! He knows what the public likes and has some pretty good tastes!

Be sure to checkout this shop the next time you are in Etsy will be well worth your time!


The second shop I was going to feature is Painted Kreations:

This creator has temporarily taken the things out of her shop to do a craft fair. Not to worry she will be back and her shop will be filled once again once she is done. She said that it will be around October 5th. Please be patient for everything takes time and craft fairs are very time consuming and take time to recover from and to get reoriented to what can go back in. I have seen her work and it is well worth your time to take a look at what this artist holds in her keep going back until things are back. Her painting ability is so worth seeing you will truly be missing out if you don't stop in when her items can be seen! I will leave her infomation to make this possible!


Kris I hope you had a GREAT craft fair and did well! I'm sure that is a given for you items are so wonderful and just know you must have made a hit!

Well I hope you have enjoyed the two shops that I was able to make note of today! I welcome you back this coming Monday for I will be posting two more shops from artists from the OFG TEAM! I would hate to see you miss it! See you then!
