Saturday’s Latest: Welcome Sarafina Dreams and Team Roundup

Today, I’d like to welcome Sarafina Dreams to the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team! I adore Janie’s classic lingerie designs in beautiful flowy fabrics. I have to say that my favorite piece is the oversized men’s shirt romper. I hope you enjoy Saragina Dreams and the latest from the team. 🙂

“Sarafina Dreams is the manifestation of all the lingerie designs constantly dancing through my mind. I love lingerie and have been in the business for years. It was my dream to have my own line and it’s so much fun to watch as each piece becomes a reality. I adore full sweeping gowns, silky nylon, silk knits and cotton. A lot of my inspiration comes from vintage 30’s and 40’s silhouettes and my love of global textiles. Fabric is always an inspiration. Besides my gowns and robes I also do custom and altered couture bridal petticoats. Etsy is a great place for me to be able to flourish as an artist and designer.” -Sarafina Dreams’ Etsy profile

Etsy Virtual Bridal Show: Day 17, Favors (3 of 4)…GIVEAWAY!

Welcome part three of today’s post in Etsy Virtual Bridal Show. Check out a great variety of favors from custom cookies to fabulous boxes. Now for our final giveaway for the show: Moore Impressions has donated 20 yards of personalized ribbon in either 3/8″ or 5/8″ wide for one lucky winner!

“We offer beautiful custom printed ribbon for any occasion. Use our personalized ribbons for all occasions or special events, weddings, showers, awareness, product identity or just for an added custom touch.” Make a comment with how you would use Moore Impression’s ribbon in your wedding. Good luck!

I began the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show last year to support individual artisans and vendors and to provide couples with alternatives to the mass produced wedding finds out there is traditional stores. The bridal world is evolving and growing away from the expected and moving toward individual craftsmanship and DIY touches. What’s great about Etsy is that you too can have a handmade look to your wedding without sacrificing your fingerprints to your hot glue gun.

In addition to helping individually owned shops, I wanted to bring awareness to my chosen charity: Wish Upon A Wedding. “Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Our organization takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.” -www.wishuponawedding.org

Please note that donations are not required to view or for vendors participate in the show. This is my labor of love to bring awareness to Wish Upon A Wedding and my belief in supporting small businesses and individual artisans. If you feel led to help Wish Upon A Wedding accomplish their mission, please see Wish Upon A Wedding’s donation page.

Friday’s Favorites: Sweet as honey

This week I am going back to the old Friday’s Favorites format. It will remain an Etsy treasury feature.

So, on to Friday’s Favorites. This week is all about honey! Etsy features some great handmade (bee made in this case) honey items perfect for use as party and or wedding favors. Having a Winnie the Pooh themed baby shower? How about giving out little jars of honey? A beautiful bar of oatmeal and honey soap is perfect for a spa party. Looking for sweet treats to add to your candy or sweets buffet? Honey based candies and truffles are sure to be enjoyed by your guests.

I hope you enjoy the treasury and take a gander at what Etsy has to offer.
