Featured Seller: Minecreations 6/28/07

Growing up Julia was always an artistic and creative person. Throughout school she focused mostly on fine arts, but never felt that it was quite her cup of tea. She wanted to be able to use that creativity to make something more practical. Crafts has become her outlet... allowing her to continue being creative without being so technical.

The doors to crafting opened wide up for Julia Davidson when her boyfriend gave her a sewing machine (her proclaimed favorite tool) for her birthday. After spending about six months learning how to use it and perfecting her skills she discovered Etsy in a Readymade Magazine. From there she started selling cards that she appliqu├ęd fabric onto in her etsy shop minecreations.

While Julia is somewhat of a newcomer to Minnesota, she is already feeling at home in Minneapolis where she enjoys the great community vibe and down to earth folks.

Be sure to help support local artists like Julia! You can see more of Julia’s work at her etsy shop or see her goodies in person at I Like You and Crafty Planet (both in Minneapolis). And don’t forget to stop in and say hi at her blog!!
