July Featured Etsy Seller - GIVEAWAY!!

Oh Yeah!! We are on to July! This is one I am truly excited about. Her shop is super amazing and she has some really great summer items!


My creative side started with the love of music. I learned to play guitar...I was the girl in college who played endlessly in the dorm bathroom because the acoustics were so good.I would knock on someone's door so they could hear the song I just wrote.I'm sure I drove everyone crazy. I have always had an artistic interest of some sort. Being creative is just something that's hard to hold in.

My name, HauteConfections,(aka Linda) came about as a result of creating upscale children's clothing. One day I made a comment about an outfit looking so cute you could eat it. I think things that appeal to our senses are like beautiful desserts or confections.

I started selling on ebay about four years ago. When I discovered ETSY (, I knew that was where I belonged. I changed from children's clothing to vintage upcycled slip dresses, then experimented with statement necklaces and zippers as jewelry and as clothing. I love the unique and will take a stab at just about anything that speaks to me. You never know what I might be doing next! I would love to be able to do some type of avant garde clothing in the future but I'm not sure if there's a broader audience for it.

I love the creative process. When someone looks at my shop they might see a slip dress, but to me I see something that I spent hours arranging and rearranging and rethinking before it was completed. I start most projects not knowing what I want the end result to be. It sort of tells me what it wants to be as I go along.

My favorite pieces in the shop right now are the laminated handbags and the slip dresses. Wow are those fun! I love adding text to the things I make, clothing especially. It gives you identity and a certain uniqueness.
Although my college degree is in Psychology I have made a full time career in Advertising. I live in a small town (Spinach Capital of the World) with my firefighter husband and my beloved cat Eli. My passions in life are speaking to people about the devastation of drunk driving ( my brother was a police officer killed in the line of duty by a drunk driver) and breast cancer (my sis). Of course I love my shop and really appreciate all the artisans who sell there. I am really blown away at some of the items that are found there.

I invite everyone to look around in my shop at ! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me. Thanks for taking the time to look. I appreciate it!
