After much poking and prodding from friends and family, I have finally opened an ETSY shop. For those of you who do not know what ETSY is, let me tell you first that it is addictive. Etsy is an online shopping site for everything artsy and crafty. All the finished items are handmade. You can find vintage supplies, and just about every form of handmade items you could possibly think of from paper crafts to museum quality pieces. I do not crochet or knit so I have ordered custom crocheted for Maxx and Gigi.
My shop is called CobaltFrog. Why Cobalt Frog? Well my favorite color is cobalt blue and I like frogs. No other real reason. I thought about using my name Niki Meiners, but that is boring. If you are interested in viewing some of my creations you can go to CobaltFrog. While trying to decide what type of message I wanted my name to convey I came up with the tag line of Cobalt Frog – Where whimsy meets sophistication.
I am starting off with Jewelry and Home Decor and will include crafting supplies shortly. My jewelry pieces range from hand painted bracelets to finely crafted silver pieces. Special orders are welcome as well as multiples of an item. If your purchase is a gift please let me know and gift wrapping will be included with no charge for those of you who read my blog or read 365DaysOfCrafts.com.
