Andrea Baker Designs - Giveaway!


It's Wednesday, and time to introduce another great etsy shopAndrea Baker is sharing her talent and story with us today!  Enjoy --


Hi everyone.  My name is Andrea Baker and I live in Columbus, Ohio with my wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children and loving dog and 3 moody cats.

I was inspired by the talents and teachings of my mother.  As a child I remember my momma working at a wedding boutique in Toledo, Ohio. Specifically, I recall watching her sew the beautifully soft fabrics and create wonderfully fabulous dresses. 
I love to create classy, functional and affordable handmade items with service that is unmatched.  Sparked by the desire for a new handbag that nobody else had, I went to work on creating my very own design.  I have received so many compliments on my unique creation that all signs pointed to opening shop of my own.  

The creative focus of my business is on making quality handbags, tote bags, business card cozies, checkbook cozies and a variety of unique handmade accessories and items for the home.  I specialize in custom orders; I work very closely with my customers.  From customer description, to inception of a pattern, to quality assurance and customer satisfaction of fabric choices, my service is above and beyond traditional. 

 
I truly enjoy taking my creativity and crafting it into something that can be held. Creating gives me a way to make something that can be held and potentially passed down from generation to generation.  Crafting for me is also a great way to unwind and relax.  My work is unique because each piece is something that I've envisioned and therefore has a bit of me and my very own touch in it. 

To Win the nifty Business Card Cozy pictured above: 
 
Visit Andrea's shop and come back to tell me your favorite item.
~AND~
Subscribe to Andrea's blog, and let me know!
Two chances to win! 
 
 
Thanks so much Andrea for sharing today, and good luck to all of my readers!
The winner will be announced Monday, February 1.  (don't tell me February is already here!!)

Thanks for introducing us to Andrea. I love the business card holder in the 38 fabric. The would be a lot nicer than the Altoid tin I put my business cards in now.

Hello Amy and thank you for introducing yet another fabulous fiber artist!
I really like the "Dazzling Bird in Pink" pin-it appears to be an epiphany of Andrea's creativity in that it is a unique piece sparked by the desire to give!

Thanks Andrea and Amy... I love that business card holder. But I really love the cheque book cover. I am always loosing ours, but with a bright fun cover like that I don't expect I ever would!!

Couldn't figure out how to join Andrea's blog. Unless it has the "Become a follower" button I get really stumped. So I've added her to my blogs saved in favourites.

Have a great day!

I love all the business card cozies, hard tochoose a favorite!

Amy - Park City Girl said...

Hi there. I went to Andrea's shop, and I love all of her work. But my favorite listing is this one. I don't have money to shop at the moment, however, I like this listing because it give the buyer an option.
Well, that and the fact that I want one of them.

Great giveaway! I love Andrea's work.

Ann said...

Not sure I am too late...but the card holders are super. We just got a new logo and cards at work so a holder would be so much classier than the binder clip I typically use!
