It's that time of the week again, time for my Weekend Feature! This week I'm featuring Olga of CupCake Tree, an Etsy shop full of adorable hand carved rubber stamps perfect for all your scrapping, card making and paper craft projects. She'll even personalize your stamps! These are all so adorable I had trouble choosing just a few favorites. As always, click the image to be taken to the item's listing where you can purchase the stamp and read her interview below. You can also read all about her stamps and see them in action on her blog, CupCake Tree Designs. Enjoy!

Interview With CupCake Tree

What do you do for a living in the daytime?

I am lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful kids, one is 3 and the other 9.

Tell us a little about your Etsy self

I love Etsy! I am amazed at all of the talented people that have found this incredible website.

Tell us a little about your non-Etsy self

I feel like I am almost always my Etsy self - trying to find new ideas for stamps and how to use them! I am kept very busy with my kids and their activities - being a mom is the hardest job and I have just added another job to it!

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

I make hand carved rubber stamps. I have always loved rubber stamps, and I discovered that carving my own has allowed me to be the most creative I have ever been!

What inspires you?

Everywhere I look I see something that could be made into a stamp. I look at magazines, books, walk around craft stores...

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

Do what you love, the rest will just follow!

Love that stand mixer stamp. Not sure what I'd do with it but I really think I need it!
