Give a Warm Welcome to Beth

This is my Very first Featured Artist Interview and I'm very excited!

So without further is Beth!

I am a graphic designer working at a university in Texas. In my spare time (what's that?) I enjoy drawing, painting, crafting and, of course, design!

Do you have a Favorite color?

Lately lime green, though I admit that changes with my mood at times.

What would you say is your Favorite smell?

I have many, but I think the thing I end up getting most often in perfume and candles is probably vanilla. It's sweet without being too much, and it reminds me of baking.

What would be your Favorite place to live?

If I could still live here in Texas but have the temperature go no higher than the mid 80s, I'd be perfectly happy. heh

All time top 5 Favorite Songs?

This is a tough one! Yikes! This changes daily depending on my mood, but for now?
"Creatures of Little Faith" Ray Davies
"Rock DJ" Robbie Williams
"Shimmer" Fuel
"Wicked Ways" Garbage
"Precious Illusions" Alanis Morissette

What are your top 5 favorite movies?

Star Wars original trilogy
Lord of the Rings trilogy (I know, cheating)
Velvet Goldmine
Rocky Horror Picture Show
10 Things I Hate About You

From Beth's Etsy Store

How do you enjoy spending your time?

I like hanging out at home with my guy, Wes, and our puppies, but I'm also a big fan of going to the movies. Our big date nights are usually dinner and a movie either solo or with friends, and that's absolutely perfect to me. Beyond that, I spend way too much time online with communities, selling, play by email roleplaying, and World of Warcraft.

What is your favorite piece of Art you have created?
My Rocky Mountain Way painting

(you can also see it here:

Why is this piece your favorite?

It is one of those rare instances where a piece took on a life of its own and ended up BETTER than I thought it would.

What is your Favorite Etsy shop?

This is such a hard question to answer because I love so many different shops for different reasons! Anyone who doesn't believe me should check out my favorites list.

I'm going to go with The Silver Dog at the moment:

Why is this your favorite Etsy Shop?

Her work is gorgeous, high quality, and I lust after her flower necklaces like you wouldn't believe. I only have one, and I want 'em all!

Peace & Love,

I just want to thank Beth for being so sweet and for letting us into her world.
She is a very busy girl with alot to offer. Her work is both stunning and silly, I was happy to have her as my first Featured Artist interview. Thank you again Beth!

Quilts I've made

I thought today I'd share some photos of some of the quilts I've made in the past. I've only ever sold one of them. I usually make them for family and friends. Here are a few of them!

Thursday, August 6, 2009


So here are a TON of my favorite treasuries I've created on Etsy. They are like "Mini" pieces of art. I'm addicted to creating them. I wanted to have them all in one place. I hope you enjoy browsing through them. You will notice one thing...I LOVE COLOR! I've also done a bunch of treasuries I call "Who wants to be in my Treasury?". I pick a color and have people post their items in that color and I choose from their shops, the ones I think would work well together.

This was the last treasury! I LOVE IT!! I got some wonderful comments on this one.

My Vintage ETTEAM Treasury!

This purple color one came out AMAZING I think! I asked the fun question "Who wants to be in my treasury??".

This olive color one came out great with random shops. I asked the fun question "Who wants to be in my treasury??".

This is one of my lastest favorites!

I just love rainbow treasuries!!

My first treasury for the Etsy Treasury Team. Which I joined for obvious reasons.

I thought it would be fun to do a treasury of treasures!!

This one I made for my Hubby who had his 40th Birthday in July. He loves music and guitars so I had to so a guitar one for him.

This was one of my favorites!!
Snow White takes a BITE!!

I usually don't do light colors so I picked peach and made myself try and things and ended up with this wonderful treasury! I was very happy with the result.

We own 3 cats, Moxie, Adonis and Striker. So needless to say I love kitty buddies!
I added my Moxie girl to this treasury when she was a kitten. Top left hand corner.

This treasury I worked VERY HARD on! I dedicated it to my daughter who was born in the beautiful country of China.

Hee Hee this was my VERY FIRST Treasury! I was SOOO excited to make it. Little did I know how addicted I would become!

New Adventures

Hello there,

You will need to be patient with me since this is my first venture into the blogging world. I own a company named Crazy Daisies Designs where I make and sell Tote bags and Accessories.

I love making bags and creating fun new looks and color patterns. For me sewing is an outlet, a place where I can go and be creative and be myself. I'm very meticulous and sewing is a great way to vent that need. I'm not big on patterns I love making up my own. So all of my items are created and designed by me! They came from my little head.

I sell my items in a store online. My store is located on Etsy, now if you are saying as I once did. What is Etsy? Well you have to see for yourself. It's a world unto itself!!!

My store is
