I wrote this up and posted it on the forum of an Etsy team that I just joined called Indie Designers. I like it so I decided to cross-post it here to my own blog.
Hello! 😉 My name is Ginger and I make LOTS of different kinds of art… I can never really stick to just one medium or I would get burnt out on it. Whenever I sell at local art shows I see that each person likes something different so a variety really is the way to go! I have all of what I make in my one etsy shop. Here are some of the different kinds of things I love to make…
*Wool Sculptures* Something I got into just a year ago and really enjoy. I do the best with free-form art .. I get the material in my hands and it just magically transforms into something by the end!
Snowman & Alexander the Owl
*Photography* A long time passion of mine. I’ve got lots of print-worthy photos, only some listed on Etsy so far. I shoot all of my own product photography and have done it for other people and companies too. I’ve done portrait sessions with families and even a couple weddings. I have a Canon DSLR camera that goes with me everywhere.
Butterfly Print & Sunflower Print
*Hand-cut Vintage Hollow Books* Everyone has a different idea of what should be kept in a hollow book! I love making them — especially hunting out cool, vintage hard cover books at thrift/antique stores and garage sales and doing the finishing touches of adding decorative paper and paint.

*Copper sculptures* My brother got me started in the shop working with a mapp gas torch back in 2003. My favorite thing to make are roses! I do make other kinds of incense burners, fishermen decorations, orchid pots, flower pot decorations like butterflies, dragonflies, mayflies.. etc.
Copper Metal Rose Sculpture & Copper Metal Rose Bud Incense Cone Holder
*Fresh Incense* Aromatherapy is a wonderful thing. I have some repeat customers that swear by my scents and that makes me very happy. I get to burn it in my studio all the time too. I’m low on supplies for now but will be re-doing my incense line this fall/winter.
Sap & Moss Incense Sticks
*Cold Process Soap* My aunt who is also a multi-medium artist taught me how to make homemade soap this winter! I will forever keep making it because the thought of going back to store-bought soap is terrifying!
Oatmeal, Bees Wax & Orange Soap & Blackberry Sage Soap
I make the ONLY “vampire bite” wool scarves on Etsy! (So far.. I guess..) Which I am going to be making a lot more of because people really seem to like them. I make other scarves out of wool and sometimes silk, too.

Thank you so much for inviting me to this team and taking the time to look over my creations. I really love Etsy and all of the wonderful fellow artists and art lovers that I have come in contact with!
