Member Feature: Belletristics

Tell us a little about your shop.
Belletristics is an online graphic design shop, specializing in printable stationery design for the do-it-yourself bride.

What brought you to etsy?
I joined Etsy when I first started my business- I was looking for a place where I could easily set up a storefront to offer my designs.

How long have you been crafting?
As long as I can remember! Some of my earliest memories are of painting and sewing alongside my mom- I definitely get my DIY spirit from her! Growing up, we were constantly creating something, and that has always stayed with me.

What is your favorite item in your shop right now?
I'm currently in love with all the designs in my Besotted invitation suite! If I were to do it all over, I would use that stationery suite for my own wedding!

What is your "day job?"
I'm happy to say that running Belletristics is my day job (and has been for over a year now)!

Where do you find inspiration?
I try to find inspiration in everything around me, but it primarily comes from nature. I also love to browse through vintage ads and signage.

What is one thing you wish you could do better?
I wish I could draw better freehand. Give me Illustrator and my Wacom tablet, and I'm good to go, but with a pencil and paper I'm lucky if I can draw a stick figure!

What is one crafting tool you couldn't live without?
Does Illustrator count as a crafting tool? ;) Off the computer, I'd be lost without my 3M ATG gun- I've never found a better adhesive runner.

What is your favorite book/movie/song?
Book: anything by Greg Iles
Movie: any Guy Ritchie movie (especially ones with Jason Statham)
Song: You Look Wonderful Tonight- Eric Clapton

Where else can we find you?
