Fab Friday Giveaway: A Little Bit Tipsy

Okay...I know...another crazy Etsy jewelry store name! But, once again, this jewelry store is full of fun and funk!

This week, we're featuring Cathy from A Little Bit Tipsy

First, lets get to know a little bit more about Cathy. She has been dabbling in some form of art for many years. As you can tell by perusing her store, she is very creative--making necklaces, jewelry, and ceramic paintings!

A Little Bit Tipsy stared by selling jewelry and lots of it. You can still find lots of wonderful jewelry pieces in the store.

However, after taking painting lessons, Cathy learned that she loved to paint in a very loose and bright colored way. She owns a giant kiln and has crafted ceramics for customers and friends for nearly 8 years. All this practice paid off--Cathy recently started selling her ceramics on Etsy and they are incredibly fun!

Besides her newest ceramic designs, Cathy creates china for brides and even did a fabulous set of Christmas china for a bride a few years ago. She LOVES to get to know her customers and find out what they really like and want in her products and then makes them custom-ordered. So, if you don't absolutely love something you see, Cathy is up for the challenge of creating something just for you!

Cathy recently moved to a new workplace--a huge in-house studio with paintings in one corner, glass in another, ceramics in several places, etc..she even calls herself Miss ADD when someone looks in her studio!

She hopes to start combining her love of ceramics with her love of jewelry making--Cathy just picked up 25 pounds of clay to make handpainted and fired beads too (can you believe how much energy and creativity she has!?!).

Lets take a peek at some of Cathy's products found in A Little Bit Tipsy:

These earrings would be perfect for a formal night, wedding, or bridesmaid gift!



Her necklaces are so fun and colorful! This one caught my eye with its sea-themed colors:



I'm sorry this image is so blurry but I had to include it--i LOVE this knob pull and would totally use it in a nursery!



Sadly,my err, Baby C's nursery is black and white polka dots. I LOVE black and white polka dots so, of course, I'd LOVE this platter + dip bowl!



Love it? Want it? Buy It!
