Win a Set of Address Labels from Amyzo, aka Handmade By Amy

Week 1 of the Nine Weeks of Amy Promotion! Come back every week through the end of the year for another giveaway from another talented Amy!

I love to decorate things: my home, my mail and especially my 18 month old son, Zach. Luckily for Zach, my Etsy shop is focused on the second: decorating mail. I design fun address labels and have been selling them on Etsy for three years. It has been a fun and rewarding experience selling my handmade paper goodies. And this week you can enter to WIN your choice of any set of labels from my shop. (Details below!)

But first, a little about me and my world. I am first and foremost a wife and mother. And I love that job! I used to have a "desk job," but being a stay-at-home mom with an Etsy business on the side is so much more rewarding.

I have always been "crafty." Growing up, it seemed we were always getting into something with fabric, felt, glue and glitter. From a young age, I really enjoyed drawing and used to sketch people, dreaming of one day being a fashion designer. I made clothes for my Barbies... and scrunchies (oh so many scrunchies!!!). My sister and I were so obsessed making scrunchies one year that we decided to sell them at our church holiday bazaar. We even made cool stands out of wooden dowels to string the scrunchies on for display. Over the next few years our little table at the bazaar evolved into painted wooden animals, jewelry and other crafts. I should have realized then that my life would always be attached to the arts.

So how did I end up doing address labels? In college I majored in Marketing but minored in Art "to keep me sane," I told everyone. I took some graphic design classes that I just fell in love with. Funny how I still don't consider myself a graphic designer. I have always enjoyed the "hands on" types of art. But, in this day in age, even my scrapbooking has gone digital! Creating address labels requires very little clutter in my house. The only supplies I need are my computer, a great printer, and my creative imagination.

ENTER to WIN a set of address labels from my Etsy shop! Here's how...

First, go browse through my shop. Then come back here and leave a comment on this page telling me what your favorite item is from my shop.
