Eve's Profile

About

Hello! I am Evelyn and I come from a small beautiful town in North Greece, Alexandroupolis, currently living in Athens Greece, with my son Michael and our two cats, Vito and Nera. I am a full time accountant and a crafter in my free time. My dream is to be able one day to quit my day job and live by my crafts.

I was a 'crafty' child, always making something, and have had a love for all things handmade, growing up with a mother, that loved creating and crafting and taught me how to crochet , knit, sew and embroider when I was very young. My first creations were crochet clothes for my dolls! I love to experiment with techniques and materials and get inspired by everything around me, colors, textures, materials, pictures, magazines, nature!
I found Etsy by chance, while I was surfing in the net and was thrilled by the idea of having my one little shop and the opportunity to sell my…

I love to create things that are unique, useful, colorful, and fun to wear or give! Each item is one of a kind! Each item is made with love and attention to the detail!

*******************************************************************
Είμαι η Εβελυν και κατάγομαι από την Αλεξανδρούπολη, μια όμορφη μικρή πόλη στην βόρεια Ελλάδα, ζώντας και ζωτα τελευταία χρόνια στην Αθήνα, με το γιο μου Μιχάλη και τις δυο μας γάτες, το Βίτο και τη Νέρα. Είμαι λογίστρια πλήρους απασχόλησης και δημιουργός στον ελεύθερο χρόνο μου. Το όνειρο μου είναι να μπορέσω μια μέρα να παρατήσω την πρωινή μου δουλειά και να ζω αποκλειστικά από τις δημιουργίες μου!
Από μικρό παιδί ασχολιόμουνα συνέχεια με χειροτεχνίες και είχα μια ιδιαίτερη αγάπη για οτιδήποτε χειροποίητο, καθώς μεγάλωσα με μια μητέρα χρυσοχέρα που μου έμαθε πως να πλέκω με βελόνες και βελονάκι, να ράβω και να κεντάω από μικρή ηλικία και να αγαπάω οτιδήποτε χειροποίητο. Οι πρώτες μου δημιουργίες ήταν ρούχα πλεκτά με το βελονάκι για τις κούκλες μου! Μου αρέσει να πειραματίζομαι με τεχνικές και υλικά και αντλώ έμπνευση από οτιδήποτε γύρω μου, χρώματα, υφές, υλικά, εικόνες, περιοδικά, τη φύση!
Μου αρέσει να δημιουργώ πράγματα που είναι μοναδικά, χαρούμενα , χρωματιστά, και με προσωπικότητα. Κάθε δημιουργία μου είναι φτιαγμένη με αγάπη, μεράκι και προσοχή στην λεπτομέρεια!
Πριν από δυο χρόνια ανακάλυψα τυχαία το Etsy, κάνοντας σέρφινγκ στο ιντερνετ και ενθουσιάστηκα με την ιδέα να έχω τη δική μου μπουτικ και την δυνατότητα να διαθέτω τις δημιουργίες μου σε όλα τα μέρη της γης!
