My name is Andreanna. I am originally from Ohio but am currently living in Fribourg Switzerland. I'm also a stay at home mom.
I have a lovely albeit mischievous 1 year old daughter Isabella and a computer geek husband Sandro.
Glamasaurus has been around since 2004 although I just recently opened an etsy.
Apart from creating things, what do you do?
As a stay at home mom most of my time is taken up with playing and keeping Isabella entertained like going outside to play on the swings or reading stories.
Then there is the standard cooking and cleaning. We just moved to this part of the country so I also enjoy taking Isabella out to explore the area.
What first made you want to become an artist?
I've been creating things since childhood. When I moved here I couldn't find any hair accessories that fit my tastes so I started making my own.
It grew into jewelry from there. I just want to spread cuteness everywhere!
What advice would you give to artists who are new to selling their handmade products?
Always work to improve your product and your quality of service. If you aren't selling as well as you should promote yourself more.
How do you promote your work?
I belong to oddles of social networking sites like Myspace, Livejournal, and Facebook. I also have a blog at http://blog.glamasaurus.com so I can
keep everyone up to date on the ins and outs of Glamasaurus.
Thanks so much for featuring me and hope everyone reading this has a fabulous day!
