August Featured Etsy Seller GIVEAWAY!!! Win a Purse!


Wow! This summer is flying by. I am already starting to think about Christmas. During some of my Christmas shopping, I found the cutest little purses I have ever seen! Almost everyone has an iphone, ipod, or some sort of little gadget these days. Olga Carmody from Jolly Little Purse makes the cutest little bags to put those gadgets in!



Olga sent me the giveaway purse, which I will forward on to the winner! It is sooo cute. They are extremely well made and packaged. The inside is even detailed and has the cutest tag! Here is Olga's interview:

1) Tell me a little about yourself?

Hi, my name is Olga Carmody and I am the person behind http://www.jollylittlepurse.etsy.com/. There I create little purses which I love and find it difficult to part with them, when they are sold.

My career has nothing to do with arts and crafts. Actually it is as far as you can get from it: I have a BA in English and work part time as an English/Russian/Ukrainian medical interpreter.

Ever since childhood everything handmade fascinated me. My grandmother who still lives in the Carpathian mountains of Ukraine taught me how to use the sewing machine, paint Easter eggs, collect uuseful herbs and mushrooms in the forest and much more.

I remember my sister and I making little clay cups and plates and feeding farm animals and running barefeet all summer long...

2) How did you start your Etsy shop?

One day my husband was looking at everything I made for kids and the house ( from baby clothes and floor rugs to lamp shades and embroidered pictures) and suggested Etsy.

I loved it enstantameously !!Iloved the huge creative pot which Etsy is. I love the community aspect of it. How great it is to get up in the morning and get a pleasant note from my dear customer who just received her Jolly Little Purse in a special extra cute package! My customers give me a great pleasure. I didn't expect it to be so rewarding to have a shop on Etsy.

3) What is your favorite piece or product to make and why?

Favorite? I had a lot of them in my creative life. At first the idea is born in my head, it sits there for some time and then when the time is right I start to create and get totally involved into the process. My husband complains sometime that I am not there with him when I sew. I love fabric ( to the point that I can get almost sick from the excitement of being in a good fabric shop).

4) List your websites.

My other shop on Etsy is http://www.olgacarmody.etsy.com/.
