Pixie Blossoms

Who are you?
I am a woman that loves to create and make pretty things. I am a mother of two little boys and I spend the whole day at home with them. When I have some "free" time, I will enjoy photography, sewing, creating some exquisite and playful pieces for our home, myself, kids and friends. I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil and I have lived in the USA since 2002, because I met my husband and he is an American citizen.

Shop name/link
My shop name is Pixie Blossoms and the link is http://pixieblossoms.etsy.com

Categories I specialize in
Usually art (photography), vintage (for my vintage kits), bags and purses and children.

Do you create for children or adults, women or men?
Adults and children, usually for women. I will be making kids' backpacks soon, for little kids and I will make for boys too (kindergarten age).

What do you like about Etsy?
Their organization, it's handy and easy to deal with. I think it's a great site that is helping a lot of people out there to show off their work. It's not easy to build a website (online shop) ourselves and maintain it. I like it more than Ebay. We are able to buy and sell unique handmade work and also I've been finding nice craft supplies.

What do you like about creating?
I love the freedom of choosing whatever comes to my mind. I love to play with different patterns, textures, colors. I feel really good when in the end of a creative process, I like the result and also it's a pleasure to know that people like it too. Creating means something new and I consider myself a very bright and open person, welcome to new ideas, new concepts.

What do you love about your business?
I don't think I own a business. This "business thing" is too big for me. I am small, only one working sometimes, I don't know how things will turn for me in the future. I don't really keep thinking about it. I live this moment now of making few pieces of joy for people, because they really make me feel happy. I like selling and I love when you love what I make. It's all about the pleasure of making and being recognized as well. Money doesn't really matter at this moment.

What is your favorite product right now?
My bags.

What makes you unique at Etsy?
Hmmm, let me see...I can say the way I put so much on my products. I spend hours on each of them. I will try all possibilities before finishing something. I like the style I am in right now, it's playful, it's colorful, it's happy, it has a different touch, a vintage feel. Also, my photographs pass the same feeling. It's never sad, never dark. People say I am generous, outspoken and bright. I think the uniqueness of my products reflects who I am.

What makes you unique as a woman?
We are all unique. I don't wanna be pretentious...we are all unique.

What do you love about your kids?
They are so smart, so beautiful...they amaze me all the time. I love the fact that they are here, they are around me all the time, I love to have the chance to be their mother. I am very grateful for that!!!!

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?
I have a blog since last year and it's fun. Come visit anytime! http://journal.pixieblossoms.com
