This is… Yael

who can be discovered at her Etsy shop The Joy of Color
on Twitter: @thejoyofcolor
and on Facebook: Yael on facebook

Favourite colour?

Tough one, I love them all , but if pushed I'll say Blue and Green

Favourite smell?

The smell of a fresh baked Bread, nothing like it to give you an appetite
and I bake a few times a week so I'm in a big problem!

Favourite place?

After my home? Paris is my favorite city, and Portofino Italy is the place to feel the Dolce Vita.

Favourite way to spend your time?

Sitting in a Cafe with my hubby or friends or even just to enjoy the coffee and to look at the people around me.

Favourite item in your shop of all time?

Usually it's the latest, and now I really like (if I may say so) my latest Poppy flowers.


I love them because although simplified I think they keep the grace and passion of the real ones.

Favourite shop that isn’t yours?

Wow, I have so many, you just have to look at my favourite to see. But one I like a lot is the painter Jessica Torrant

"How I believe" by Jessica Torrant


It's emotional, I love her abstract painting, the way she uses color.

What has been the most useful lesson you’ve learnt so far that you’d like to pass on to our readers?

I'm still struggling to find my place, but one thing that I don't apply yet very well is time management, to keep the right balance between creating and marketing. That said I'm still far from finding the right marketing strategy but i'm learning something every day.

Thanks Yael! Don't forget, you can find more from the Joy of Color here:
