Another GREAT Etsy shop, txbutterfly74!!

As all of you regular followers know I am addicted to the handmade movement and I love Etsy and Art Fire! Thanks to modern technology all you have to do is visit one of these awesome online marketplaces to find some very finely crafted items. It still amazes me that there is so much talent floating around cyber space!! Txbutterfly74's shop is one of these great cyber finds!

I met this lovely lady through my other Etsy friend Heather, from Heathers Handmade Creations. TX has a lovely shop on Etsy where you can find some very unique pendants to Aceo's!! Her work is superb, I recently ordered a pendant from her for my sister! A cute black cat!! They pendant arrived in a flash and it was really an awesome piece of work!! So when I find those that are masters at their crafts I have to share it with the world!! After all I can't be too selfish.....hehehehe....

So I did a little interview with TX, and here it is!!

Tell us a little about yourself: My name is Cherilyn and I will be 35 years old in February. I moved to beautiful Austin, Texas in August of 2000 from South Florida with my long term boyfriend, Alexis . We have three beautiful dogs. Alexis and I love to collect vintage musical instruments. Haha what TX forgets to mention is that she paints....I have yet to see her work, but I will continue to pester her about it!!

Your store has a wide range of items from chic pendants to adorable tags, what inspires you to create all these adorable items? My Inspiration comes from a lot of sources like nature, music, colors, life or other creative people. I absolutely love to brainstorm with someone to help both of our inspirations shine. It's a beautiful thing!

What are some of your favorite shops on the net? Oh my goodness! Everyone is so talented on Etsy! I am so addicted to these shops, checking on the multiple times a day to see what they are doing!

Here are a few of TX's Fave Shops:
Miss Avocado : Very cute Aceo's
Nushkie Design : Needle and Wet Felted Creations to Treasure
AmberSky's : Very Cute Jewelry
Heathers Handmade Creations: Awesome Cards and Tags
Hillsidebakery's: Some VERY awesome fudge!!! Hehhe she has other stuff too!
Well besides being a great artist TX is a VERY sweet lady!! So do yourself a favor this V Day and give her shop a try!! You won't be disappointed!! Hehheh I would also check out her fave shops, there are some really awesome items!!
As always be happy and be safe!!
