Welcome to WESTie Wednesday, where each week we get to know a proud WEST member and their Etsy shop! Learn about Ang and her shop
"I’m Ang, a yoga-loving, meditating, free spirited Mama who loves music, and reading and is constantly learning. I love to travel, I’m fluent in Dutch, and in a former life I was a drafting technician."
"As for the origin of Daisy Thirteen, I have always loved the simple beauty of a Daisy. And Thirteen has been my lucky number for as long as I can remember. I love recycling or re-purposing something old into something new, or in the case of my wooden blocks, rescuing them from a trip to the landfill and infusing them with some TLC. My bead obsession began while traveling, and while in Australia I sold my hemp jewellery on the street and in markets. I love the whole process of taking a bunch of 'stuff', and transforming it into something beautiful and useful. The transformation is magical, and it is this creative process which I find myself surrendering to… time and time again. I love to create things that make me smile, and I hope that in doing so, I may make someone else smile."
"Currently I only have quote blocks listed in my Etsy shop, and they are the perfect gift for anyone! I have all kinds of quotes available, from guffaw-inducing to tear-jerking (and everything in between). Custom orders are always welcome, and I can also transfer photos or a handwritten note to a block. The fact that my blocks are free-standing means that you can just plunk them down anywhere. No need to put holes in your wall, or try to find a frame... just set it down and instantly transform your space."
We asked Ang “Why Etsy?”
"I love the freedom it provides. The freedom to stay home with our son, homeschool, earn some money, and be creative!"
"Come see me at the Etsy Made in Canada sale on September 26, 2015!"
