They even have a reduced rate for booths for handcrafted items. It looks like fun and I wanted to share the website and information...

Introducing e2 Designs

Hello Colorado!! I am a happily crazy SAHM of 2 lovable terrors in Fort Collins! In an attempt to keep some shred of sanity I create adorable baby items (usually in the wee hours of the morning!!) My store, e2designs, is named after my lovely daughter, Ella Elizabeth (e2!) whose passionate hatred of the "infant carrier" created a need for a jacket that didn't take 20 min to get on and off! Our solution - the poncho. Not so great when worn by drunken cowboys, but these updated, stylish looks are all the rage with the 14 and under set (and some VERY hip mammas!)

Hi Everyone!

Our inspirations come from our family, friends and of course, Colorful Colorado. Sandy is a native, Kellie, that's me, have lived here for over 15 years, and Joshua, my son, is a native as well. We enjoy crafting together as a family very much. We live on the west side of Colorado Springs. Our other full time passion is a home daycare, we also volunteer at Joshua's elementary school. Whew...we are really busy, but doing something you love is worth it. We are very happy to be a part of the etsymilehighclub!

Artist new to Denver seeks love and acceptance

Just kidding! Well, I really am new, but I think I've found all the rest!

Greetings all,

My name is Megan Savors. I moved to Denver recently from Charlotte, NC, and I love it here! In both weather and friendliness it reminds me of the area of PA and Ohio where I come from. What do I do? I make art jewelry and accessories, and sometimes when I get the itch, I sew a bit. Currently I sell my wares through my Etsy site, but I'm looking for gallery and/or boutique representation. Drop me a line if you're a friendly local artist, or even if you're a mean one who has a suggestion as to where I can sell my stuff!



Hello there, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Alison. I live in Firestone with my dh and 4 kids. Crafting is my sanity-saver most of the time.
I have 2 stores on Etsy:
Eventually I'd love to have my items in a brick & mortar store, but current conditions kind of make that hard.

Also, have a blog that I upkeep regularly:


Hello From Colorado Springs!

I love to make jewelry, but I think I love buying supplies and other items even more. I think I am just a shopper at heart with BIG ideas. I have so many ideas swimming in my head that half of them drown before I can get to them. I also love to write poetry and read. I am an unpracticing accountant right now, but that may change as my student loans are now due. Blah! I found out at the end of my schooling that I hate numbers and that I LOVE the arts. Actually, I kind of always knew this just never understood it until I took Art and Literature. I love to make friends and I love to talk to and watch people. I learn more about myself when I listen to others and I love to watch how other people react to the elements around them.

I live in Colorado Springs with my patient Husband, two girls, and three cats. I look forward to being a member of a team with those who are in the same state as well as having as much fun with this group as I do with the other groups that I am a member of.

groovygrrl intro

Hello all!

I am Amy Kalinchuk, soap maker and now crafty sewer. I plan on offering my sewed items in my etsy shop.

Olde Crone's Bewitching Bath Soap is the name of my other venture. All the soaps are handmade from scratch by me, in my kitchen. I also make lip balm, body balm, sugar scrub, facial cleansing oil, and a facial serum. I sell these things online and at a couple of farmer's markets--Old South Pearl Street and Historic Downtown Littleton.
In addition to these things, I'm an author and publisher, a public school teacher, and a mom. Whee!

Good fortune to all of you in your etsy endeavors!

p.s. I live in Denver.

I am taking a crash course in Blogging tonight! But here I am! I made it in and want to introduce myself~
My name is Gretchen. I live in Colorado Springs. I am a Colorado native and have lived in this fabulous state all of my 30 years. I was born in Greeley, raised in Palmer Lake and received my BFA at Fort Lewis College in Durango with a focus in Bookbinding and Papermaking. I haven't had the space to resume that yet, but I have found a wonderful outlet in knitting, felting and needle felting.  I feel the need to create functional art and craft.

Thanks again for the opportunity to be part of your wonderful community!
