Introduce Yourself: My name is Breanna and I live to create. Visual arts, writing, cooking, and event planning are a few of my passions. Energy drinks are my guilty pleasure and I have a cat named Nagini.
What is the name of your shop and how long have you been open?
BnBz Boutique and 6 months.
Where else can people find you online? I sell exclusively on Etsy. I can also be found on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about your shop or yourself? My psychedelic artwork encourages everyone to show off the parts of themselves that can’t be put into words. Each piece is designed completely from my imagination! I try to offer different sizes/prices so there is something for everyone.
How long have you been doing your craft? Since 1985.
How did you get started? My eldest child was 10 months old and colicky. My sister-in-law suggested I needed to get out of the house a bit. Her mother taught rug hooking classes. No one would take care of my daughter, so we took her with us...along with a baby swing. As long as the baby swing was going she was quiet. As soon as it stopped she'd start to cry. It was a long day or two, learning to hook. But it was fun because my sister-in-law and her mother had a great attitude about the whole thing. And I was captivated by the potential for the craft right from the start.
What do you like about selling on Etsy? I can reach a wide diversity of people from all over the place. It's easy to list and manage your items for sale. There's support and help if you need it.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about your shop or yourself? The work in my shop is all original designs, most of them worked directly on backing without a pattern, and therefore not reproducible.
I am a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council. I exhibit across North America. I have work in private collections in South Korea, the United States, and in Canada.
I am pleased to have my shop featured by Etsy. Thank you for all the opportunities Etsy!

How long have you been doing your craft and how did you get started? I have been creating greeting cards since I was a little girl, but really didn't get into it commercially until 1998 when I submitted some of my work. That was a big day when some of my designs were accepted!
What's been your best Etsy experience? My Etsy experience is very new to me, but in the last couple of weeks I have had so much fun! It is a lot of fun to see people favouriting my shop or even just viewing it from all over the world. I feel like I am connecting with other creative people.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us about your shop or yourself? One thing that I like about having my own little Etsy company is that I have the freedom to create what I want and not be bound by the limits of a large publishing company.I am free to be just me!
