FRIDAY FEATURE - Expressions By Devin


Give us a summary of your shop, and how you got started?
My shop is comprised mainly of hand made greeting cards and some other gifts that come to mind while working in my studio. It got started a couple of years ago when I began making cards for family and friends and then just expanded when someone asked me if they were for sale.


How did you select y
our name?
Expressions By Devin is the name of my business. It just started as something that sounded good and not too cheesy.

What makes your shop unique?

I like to think my shop is unique because I hand stamp, color, and design all of my cards. I refuse to use stickers. My cards you definitely can't find at the store.

Do you sell anywhere outside of etsy? If so, where?
I sell my cards in my aunt and uncle bakery ,plus i have a website www.expressionsbydevin.com. I also try to set up at any fall craft fairs I can find in my area.

How long have you been making your craft?

For 3 years

Is it your full-time job?

I certainly wish that it could be. I own my own cleaning business.

How do you balance work, and/or your shop, and home?

After work, I spend much of my time working on items for the shop. My husband is my business adviser and does a lot of work with me. My dog Lovie likes to hang out in the studio with me also.

What is your favorite material?

Do clear stamps count? I absolutely love using clear stamps. My current favorites are the vintage stamps I found on vacation.

What inspires you?
I find inspiration from lots of places. I love classic art. When I get stumped for new ideas I put on the radio and let the music give me direction.
