Featured Seller Of The Week

JOOM is my featured seller of the week!


The Interview.........

What do you make? I make all kind of stuff such as pillows, tote bags, pouches, stationary and prints.

Where do you get your inspiration? I am inspired by nature and my surrounding, and am especially interested in nature, music, art, and architecture.The idea of using bird and flower came to me one day while I was sitting in my patio taking care of my garden. A hummingbird came to feed on a fuchsia plant, and I closed my eyes and saw the silhouette of the bird and the flower. That image has been a main part of my designs even since.

What is your favorite piece from your own shop? I really like my birdie desk calendar.



If you could buy anything on Etsy, what would it be? I would like to get a Vintage Cherry Bench from sprucehome.


What made you start making your item? I grew up around my father's shoe factory. I think once my parents saw that I loved to draw they encouraged that in me. I’ve always wanted to be an illustrator or a designer. I like using different kind of materials for my work.


Do you have a favorite purchase or two? I love my boston terrier mini pillow that I bought from MODESTO. I have a boston terrier, named seven.

I can't pick a favorite but I can narrow it down to any of the bird pillows :) They are so pretty in a clean line sort of way!

LOVE the mini pillows! The Silver Green Cardinal is my favorite.

The Framed Magic Tweetie Tree print is just wonderful as well.

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22253979

I've always loved Joom's items because I absolutely love birds and Joom has the best looking bird pillows ever. These pillows may be the only things I don't let my lovebirds climb on! *lol*

I would love, love, love to win this contest so I can give a little pillow to my 7 month old baby niece whom I'm determined to mold into a bird lover (despite her cat loving parents). ^_^

My favorite item is the "Framed Orange Bride Bird Print" (link here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25262702 )

I missed out on getting a Joom calendar this past year and just found a link that reminded me of it. *grumbles to herself * So I'm adding Joom's shop to my RSS feed so I'm sure not to miss it THIS year (even though it is still the middle of the year! :)

I love most of her stuff it is hard to choose one - at the moment i would say the birdies in the rain picture

Candice said...

Love Joom's bird pillows, as they remind me of my grandmother who thought she was a bird in her final years battling Alzheimer's.

Red Cardinal on Agapanthus-Mini 10.5 Inches Square Pillow is my favorite.

City Chic said...

I've been love with these pillows from the day I saw them! I'm thinking of getting one for a wedding gift, but I'm not sure if I could part with it :) I am thinking the Slate Hummingbird with Eucalyptus would be my choice, but it's hard to choose just one!!
