Featured Donor: Absidy & Absidy's Revenge






1. How would you describe your work/style?
Classy, Simple and beautiful. I put a lot of myself into every piece. I take my time making every single piece and have taken may apart that I don't feel are up to par.



2. What inspired you to start creating and selling your work?
I started making jewelry for my mom and she started selling a couple pieces here and there and when I saw they were selling, I thought I would go at it online.



3. What are your favorite causes/charities?
I love Toys for Tots. I've seen and participated in many "behind the scenes" events such as wrapping and collecting the toys and know what a great cause it supports.



4. Where else can we find your work?
I sell locally at the "One Stop Beauty Supply" in downtown Fallbrook, CA.

Feature Donor: After Midnight Designs




1. How would you describe your work/style?
I'm not sure how to describe it. I sit at my work table and stare at the materials until it just comes to me. I get an idea and just run with it. That way each piece ends up with a style of its own.



2. What inspired you to start creating and selling your work?
My grandmother is very crafty. I think I get it from her. So, it started out as a hobby. I made things for myself, friends, and family. My neighbor found out what I did. She makes jewelry and did craft shows. She helped me get started at the shows. Then I found the Diyscene forums. That is where I found out about Etsy.



3. What are your favorite causes/charities?
My favorite causes are anything to do with animals. I have always volunteered and done rescue work with animal organizations. My heart belongs there. I also have volunteered with special needs children. That would be my next choice.



4. Where else can we find your work?
I mainly sell on Etsy. I also do a lot of work in my city. I do private parties and craft shows. I tell everyone to feel free to contact me if they have any questions or want to see additional pieces.

Does that little purple octopus look familiar? It should! It's available in the Charity Shop and donated by Concertina3.

Unfortunately, we do not happen to know who curated this Treasury. Whoever you are, thank you so much!
