Freebie Friday # 2 - Tessy Tree


Freebie Friday # 2 - The Tessy Tree

I stumbled upon this shop right after opening up my etsy shop. The minute I saw her shop I fell in love! It took me a while to finally decide what to get, and I can not share all the items I purchased in case some family members are reading this...but this is what I ordered for myself:

Isn't it amazing? It's perfect - just like our little family - we are three peas in a pod. And I also love it because we called Lily "Sweet Pea", when we were pregnant. I just can not say enough wonderful things about her. Her customer service is amazing, she ships super fast, and the item really speaks for itself in person!

Anyways - It is so gorgeous and so well made, even with a toddler pulling on it, it looks as beautiful as the day I received it.

Here are some more items she has listed in her shop:

Here is a little about the woman behind The Tessy Tree:

What is your (first) name and your shop name?
Stef, The Tessy Tree

Tell us a little bit about yourself, married, kids, work, ect?
I am a working full time single mother of two girls, who I absolutely adore, and i also have two furbabies Bob and Apples. We love playing outside and they both like to dress up in mommy's jewelry.

When did you open your etsy shop and what motivated you to?
I opened my Etsy shop in January of 2011, I am really impressed on how well it has done so far, I mainly get more orders off facebook for now but I am definately not complaining. My motivation for my shop is the fact that I would love to be a stay at home mom and do my jewelry full positive thoughts please! Positive thoughts bring good things!

What is your favorite thing to make and why?
Obviously my favoritie thing to make are my trees!! They are each different. No two are alike, even if they have the same colors or beading on them there is no way the branches or roots can be identical, so I think it is really cool that when someone wins or purchases one they truly are getting a one of a kind piece. I also enjoy making the pea pod necklaces because they bring such joy to so many mothers and are perfect shower/hospital gifts, I also like them because 5.00 from each one goes to the March of Dimes.

What is your favorite thing to do besides crafting?
I love to fish and I love looking at the night sky, so many wonders out there!

What is a fun fact about you?
fun fact about me.... well... I am addicted to cleaning! haha! I am obsessed with vacuums and I get really excited when I am in the cleaning isle at the store!
