This is ... HiGirls

Changeable neckwire

It's been a while since I've found a willing blog victim - if you'd like to be featured here, get in touch!

HiGirls is a new friend from Etsy ETTEAM who makes handbags and works in polymer clay.

Wine bottle stopper

Favourite place?

Our family's summer cottage in Maine. More specifically, on the front porch, gazing at the view with a g&t in my hand.

Favourite way to spend your time?

I love being inspired to create, getting an idea and hurling myself into creating! When inspired, I'll work until someone interrupts me, or I am driven to seek out food for survival!

Favourite item in your shop of all time?

Would have to be one of these bangles:


I'm realizing that maybe I have a thing for leaves....hmmmm...

Favourite shop that isn’t yours?

Oh my gosh, how could I answer that? There are so many fabulous shops and creative people I have met here...I love so many of my teammates shops from etteam and PCAGOE
(Nifty adds: HiGirls is too modest to tell us, but she's just won an award at PCAGOE)
jkollmann and MyMothersGarden are just two of many!

I love their creativity, their amazing use of color and form.

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

Join any group you can or just participate once in a while in the forums and you will pick up so much useful information. I have learned so much from the extended online community here at etsy and so enjoyed making friends with folks all over the world.

Thanks HiGirls - you're right, we can (and do) learn so much from each other.

find HiGirls on facebook and in her HiGirls Etsy shop

Another great feature, Heather!
I always enjoy getting to know the real person behind the shop name, especially their favourite place and favourite way to spend their time. Lisa, my favorites in your shop are the many bangles and bags...they're all so pretty and unique. Thanks for adding me as a put a big smile on my face this morning. : )

Always nice to hear a bit more about teammates. Great items! I could go for that cool front porch in Maine.
