Judith has been selling on Etsy since May 2014. Based out of Memphis, TN, Judith makes beautiful, inspiring hand-crafted signs for weddings and home decor. Heres a link to her BeesWax Website.
We talked to Judith and asked her some questions to help us get to know her better. Heres what she told us:
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself?
A: I work in the inner city schools. I began to make things as a child. I loved art as a child. Ive always loved art.
Q: What inspires you? Where do your ideas come from?
Life inspires me. Some of my ideas come from the classrooms where I work. I have always loved art even as a young child. I believe it is never too late to do what you love and to love what you do.”Do What You Love, love What You Do”. That quote is in one of my signs.
I love quotes in real life. For me, making these signs is a way to put it into real life.
Q. What are your favorite materials?
My favorite materials are canvas, wood and acrylic paint. Most of my signs are made from pinewood.
Q. Any tips for selling handmade stuff?
All of my promotion is through word of mouth—I believe in it.
Q. Do you sell anywhere besides Etsy?
I only sell my wood signs on Etsy. But, I had a craft fair sell last year at a Community Center.
