Splendid and Sparkly - An Etsybloggers Team Feature

It's my honor and pleasure today to introduce you to Margaret, the Etsybloggers Team Blogger of the Month for October. Margaret owns not only one, but two shops on Etsy - SplendidLittleStars, where you can find adorable kids fashions modeled by some really adorable kids; and SparklyPark - her, dare I say it? - sparkly collection of jewelry and gifts for her more grown up clientele!

Margaret is a professional fashion designer and fabric dyer with a 19+ year career in the field. Besides selling her work on Etsy, you'll find her fashions and jewelry at art and craft shows in addition to producing commissioned work, teams shirts, and supplied fundraisers. (Local Cincinnati commissions have included Kast-A-Way Swimwear & Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.)

She also teaches the art of tie dyeing to youth groups in the central to eastern Cincinnati area.--Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, church youth groups, and even birthday parties (high school age and under). If you live in the greater Cincinnati area and would like information on how to arrange one of her classes, convo her on Etsy - she'd love to hear from you!

P-R-E-C-I-O-U-S...that's how I would describe this darling little Princess Dress, Dreaming In Pink and the model who's wearing it! It's hand dyed and hand-painted with dye, guaranteeing you a true one-of-a-kind treasure!

Isn't that toothy grin adorable? And the one on the snowman on this Snowman T Shirt is pretty darn cute too! Once again, this shirt is hand dyed and painted with dye so that there isn't any "paint" feel - although the snowflakes on this shirt are painted on!

Walk on a rainbow trail,
walk on a trail of song and all about you will be beauty.
There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail.
~Navajo Poem

That poem is from the description of one of Margaret's marvelous Tie-dyed T-shirt listings. I love all the swirls and curls on this shirt and her model's hair! How fun and cute!

In addition to the darling angels you've already seen in this post, a visit to Margaret's other shop - SparklyPark - will enchant you with some adorable angel earrings like these sweet freshwater pearl and glass bead earrings.

Luckily, I'm getting a chance to feed my passion for purple today too with these beautiful Lavender fantasy earrings. Dainty and perfect for that little touch of subtle color, I think you'd love them too!

I hope you'll take the opportunity to visit both of Margaret's shops as well as checking out her blog where you'll find her sharing all of her wonderful adventures, information about her techniques, and some great features of great Etsy finds!

Have a great evening... I'll be back tomorrow with a look at SciFi as seen through the eyes and minds of the creative spirits on Etsy! Hope to see you then :)
