To help us get to know Stef of The Tessy Tree and her gorgeous creations, I asked her a few questions...
2) When did you decide to turn your hobby into a business? I have wanted my own business my whole life. I have two wonderful children and I am so tired of missing out on them because of my full time job, so I said why not, people have always said they liked my stuff, the worst thing that could happen is no one buys anything and I have alot of stuff that I think is cool. And here I am. I have big plans for my business, this is what I want to do full time, so look out world, The Tessy Tree is coming.
3) What is your favorite thing about having an Etsy shop? I love having an etsy shop, because etsy has opened my eyes to so many wonderful artists out there, that I would have never discovered if I hadnt joined. I prefer handmade over anything factory so I love etsy and supporting others who are trying to make it on their own. Another thing I love, I met one of my best friends off of here in a forum asking for advice! Who would of thought!
4) Do you have a favorite design or go to piece that you always use or give as gifts? I actually haven't gifted very many of my own things, but if I were to do that of course I would custom make a tree with something my recipient loved, book themes are really popular.
5) What can we expect in the future? You can expect more trees with new themes and twists, trees for the home (which are almost complete for their debute) new pod designs, decorative plates and whatever else I am in the mood for :)
