Scrapbooks, Journels, and Clipboards Oh My!

There are many nice gifts for bridal showers and wedding gifts, but these scrapbooks are absolutely gorgeous.  Vicki is the owner of "Paper Pieces by Vicki" on Etsy.  She began selling on Etsy after a colleague told her about the site.  They thought she would find a larger audience to showcase her handmade books to.  She has been a member of Etsy since 2009.

Vicki's passion is anything paper or mixed media.  She loves experimenting, and enjoys all the gorgeous paper available in today's market.  Selling custom and premade scrapbooks, journals, and clipboards, is a great way to turn her passion in to lovely items to sell. 

Crafting since she was a young girl, Vicki has worked with just about everything except for woodworking.  She works as a speech pathologist, using arts and crafts as a well to work with her students.

Today you can find Vicki's lovely work in her Etsy shop: Paper Pieces by Vicki and at craft shows around Central Ohio.  She has previously sold her wares at Morgan House and Wren House.

Selling online can be a challenge.  Her advice to others who want to try, is to make sure you take good pictures.  This is probably one of the most important areas to concentrate on.  Describe your passion when you are listing an item. Include details about why you created an item.  This will help build interest and encourage potential customers to buy from you.

Vicki has many hobbies that she enjoys.  She really loves to travel, reading, cooking, her pets, gardening, knitting, needle arts, and scrapbooking.  Many of her hobbies can be great inspirations for her creativity.

Everything around Vicki inspires her.  Just take the time to look around you.  You would be amazed at the inspirations you can find in nature, color, textures, children, pets, and more.   

Looking forward to her future, Vicki is hoping to be able to create more mixed media work,  She is hoping to go to a retreat this coming summer.  Her desire is to be able to do more custom orders, and really wants to be able to retire from her real job!

I would highly recommend her work.  I have purchased a few items from her for my family.  The most recent was a custom journal/scrapbook for my daughter.  I shipped it to my daughter for her birthday.  She was elated when she received it.  She will be using it to journal and keep memorabilia from her first year of marriage.  What a great gift this will make for her husband!

Vicki's favorite quote: "Think big! There are unseen forces ready to support your dreams."

Thanks for stopping by!
