Weekend Feature: tizzalicious

Meet Tizz, a crafting etsian from Holland. She makes a lot of different things but there’s no mistaking her style, it’s Tizzalicious! Her teeny tiny dollhouse art makes me want to retrieve my unfinished dollhouse from my parents and start renovations! You can find Tizz at her etsy store, her off etsy shop and keep up with her on her adorable blog, I just checked out her blog and saw that she has a tutorial on how to make her adorable monster! See some of her work and read her interview below. Click a pic to view the etsy listing.

Tell us a little about your non-etsy self
I'm Tizz, a 25 years old crafty girl from Holland! I have a boyfriend, Per, who has to put up with the mess I make when creating stuff. I'm a Blythe addict, and Hanson fan, and I think I'm a bit of a shopaholic too!

What do you do for a living in the daytime?

I am currently on disability because of severe migraines.

Tell us a little about your etsy self

I am an Etsy addict! Ever since I signed up I can't stop browsing the forums, treasuries, other peoples' cute blogs,... I wish I was rich so I could buy a whole lot! My favourites are filled with cuteness! As for my shop, I sell "kawaii, kitsch & rockabilly", so my shop is full of cuteness and things inspired by the past. I started with just jewelry (for people and Blythe dolls alike!), but I recently added other things like magnets, little mixed media collages, and cute soft monsters.

What do you make and why did you start making it?

I make jewelry, accessories, mixed media art and softies. I have been making everything for years now, except for the softies, I started those recently.

How did you discover etsy and how long have you been selling on etsy?

A friend told me about it! I signed up as a buyer first (sometime in 2007), but didn't start selling until January this year.

What inspires you?

I love anything 50s and retro, which is definitely noticeable in my work. And other peoples' crafts & cuteness! Being on Etsy really inspired me to be more crafty and try new techniques.

What advice do you have for people trying to sell their crafts?

Make sure you have good pictures in your shop, and promote a lot! Start a blog and use it for more than just shop updates so people will be interested in reading it. Get a Flickr, a MySpace, sign up for blog listings,...anything to get your name out there! And be original! :)
