Meet WeddingMonograms

Name: Rebekah

Craft: Graphic Design

Etsy Store:

How long have you been in business? Since June 11th 2009

How did you get started? A few friends on the Project Wedding brides forums asked me to make monograms for them and I found I really enjoyed it. I decided to create my little etsy shop and I've been having fun with it ever since.

Do you have formal training? Some college courses in color theory, fine art and graphics design

What's the best part of having an Etsy store? Getting so many hits in one day. Its way better than trying to attract traffic to another website.

What surprised you about having your own business? I was really surprised how much I enjoyed interacting with my customers. I'm not normally a people person.

How would you describe your style? Vintage Elegance.

What one item should everyone see in your store? This is my favorite monogram:

Meet Mary*Mule

Name: Mary L.

Craft: sewing- "handmade fabric accessories"

Etsy Store: mary*mule-

How long have you been in business? Since March 09.

How did you get started? I bought a sewing machine about a year ago when I decided I wanted to learn to sew. I am one of those people who sees something in a store and thinks "I can make that." I also wanted to be able to hem my own pants instead of always paying someone to do it for me. My first project was a pair of PJ pants (that didn't fit), then I moved on to a purse and tote bags.

Do you have formal training? I am self taught.

What's the best part of having an Etsy store? Sharing my creations with others. I guess I don't really "do it for the money." But I like making things and have to get rid of it somehow! I love that I can now make gifts for people too.

What surprised you about having your own business? All the "housekeeping" work that goes along with it. Recording cost of supplies, keeping a log of what I sell, all that mumbo jumbo.

How would you describe your style? Simple I guess. But not in a bad way.

What one item should everyone see in your store? This purse!

Holiday Cards and Such

It's that time of year to think about holiday cards. If you like to send photo cards, it is even more important to think about ordering them sooner than later. To help you with that task, we've compiled a selection of holiday cards offered by some KNET team members.

Swish Designs offers several photo card designs. After she adds your photo, you can print the cards locally.

FourHarpDesigns has a multitude of photo card designs. She'll also add your photo, send you the file, and then you can print them locally.
