I would like you to meet Barbara Höbling and her Etsy shop: Kreativprodukte .
If you love a mixture of handmade jewelry and other wonderful things, then you will love the items at Kreativprodukte .
Let’s get to know Kreativprodukte and Barbara:
What would you like us to know about you?
what is there to know about me?? well in my day job I am a chemist so there is a lot of technical stuff all around me all day and that´s where crafting comes in. it´s my getaway from the technical stuff and helps me to clear my mind. don´t get me wrong, I love science, “why?” is my favourite question but everyone needs a break and beading and macrame as well as painting are calming for me and help me to relax
When I was young and started crafting I always only made a few items which I used myself or gave away as presents.
about a year ago I took up crafting again and this time I did not stop when i had enough for myself I just kept making things and at some point I decided that i wanted to share my crafts with people all over the world
How did you come up with your shop name?
I wanted a name that expressed that I produced creative things but I did not want to be too specific about what I do..
How would you describe your shop?
my shop is a colorful potpourri of macrame jewelry, art and beaded items. if you look at my items you can see that I love color. I could never produce all white, beige or black items.
What inspires you?
I don’t have any specific source of inspiration. Sometimes things just pop up in my mind, at other times I see something on the internet (i.e. pinterest, I love pinterest) and my mind starts spinning and I’m thinking about what to do with the inspiration and how to alter it so that it will be my own creation
Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?
I cannot say, it´s different every day.
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?
Pearl cotton, wire and a few beads, that´s what most of my items are made of
Is there anything else you would like to share?
I am offering your blog readers a 10% discount until 30/11/2013.
I ship worldwide (priority with insurance) from austria and depending on where the customer is it costs between 3,7 – 10€ for everything but art
Thanks so much Barbara. It has been great getting to know you and discovering your shop and your lovely items.
Now please show Barbara some support and let us know which of her pieces are your favorite from her shop! Oh…and go ahead and heart a few of her items along with her shop
Have a great weekend!
