This week's featured Etsy shop is Gifts, Etc, a wonderful Etsy shop run by talented artist and craftswoman Katie. Gifts, Etc has an amazing array of papercrafts and also offer custom items. Here's our interview with Katie.

Tell us a little about your shop?
I sell handmade greeting cards, gift tags, business card envelopes and more. I also have some of my photography in my shop as well as some diecuts for scrapbooking.

What inspires you to create?
My son is my inspiration for anything I do. He's always so bright and cheery and I want that whole feeling to come across in my items. I do this by using fun, lively scrapbook papers and embellishments.

How did you discover Etsy?
By sheer luck. :-)

What were the first items you bought and sold on Etsy?
Hmm...the first item I sold was my Valentine's Day Gift Tags...on my very first day!! lol First thing I bought was a banner.

What are you working on right now?
Right now, I'm working on some brand new Christmas items! Yes, I said Christmas. :-)

What is your favourite item in your shop?
I loove my Hugs and Kisses card (seen to the right). My inspiration for this card was my amazing boyfriend.

What are your ambitions as an artist/craftsperson?
To continue making beautiful papercrafts that bring a smile to someone's face.
