Fantastic Feature Friday + Giveaway...gloria~jean Designs & Giggle Rainbow

Today's Fantastic Feature is of a wonderful seller who has two amazing shops on Etsy, gloria~jean Designs and Giggle Rainbow.

Giggle Rainbow was the first shop that Gloria opened here on Etsy. She says, "Creating, art, crafting and sewing have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have a passion for creating, I love to paint and sew, and I love interior design. Hubby thinks it might be a compulsion, he might be right. Is there such a thing as a compulsive crafter, painter, or designer? I am always thinking of new things to make or paint; a better way to organize this or that in a creative new way."

"My first experience with sewing was making clothes for my dolls with only a needle, thread and a scrap of fabric. Then my Gramma gave me her old sewing machine, and my skill improved with every effort. I've moved on to a better machine, better fabric, and better results. When I had my babies, my compulsion to create went into high gear I found that making baby clothing and accessories is one of my favorite creative outlets. I truly love to sew for babies. I hope you find something for your special baby as making these items brought me much joy; truly they are a labor of love."

Just four months after opening Giggle Rainbow, Gloria opened gloria~jean Designs. In this shop, she offers, "Artistic expressions for you and your home. Original Paintings; Custom paintings; Creative Decor; and "Go Green" items for your home. Artistically stylish and colorful accessories, bags, and organizational items for you.
