from
MANDIPIDY.


Enjoy.
Name?
Mandy England
Age?
24
Etsy Shop Name?
Mandipidy (Mandy + Serendipity)
How you got started in Etsy?
My MIL first told me about Etsy Christmas of 2009... and then when I started blogging a month later, I saw all these talented blogging ladies who had amazing Etsy shops, and so I started my first Etsy shop: Mandy's Yellow Corner. I sold clutches first, then statement necklaces, then hammered jewelry, then crocheted stuff... basically I dabbled in anything. I finally shut it all down last year because I knew I hadn't found my niche and my shop had no focus. This past March, I opened my new shop "http://www.etsy.com/shop/Mandipidy">Mandipidy>," in which I sell illustrated prints that I design. I am having a blast with the new shop... I find so much joy in creating new designs and wish I had the time to pump out all the ideas that are in my head right now!
Your FAVORITE thing to search for in Etsy?
I have always been drawn to prints, which is one of the reasons why I eventually opened my print shop. I love a unique and slightly funky print that has something fun to say!
Jeans or Skirt?
Most days it would definitely be a skirt... especially in the summer.
Favorite Color?
Right now it's turquoise.
Favorite Outdoor Activity?
I love camping, but it's not because I enjoy the outdoors... it's because I love good food, and we bring really good food when we camp! :)
Your favorite piece from your store as of RIGHT NOW?
My favorite would be the"Bushel & a peck print"...... It's hanging in the nursery, and I cannot wait to sing the song to my daughter when she is born!

5 words to describe your fashion sense?
Haha, how about "I don't have fashion sense"? ;) I kid, I kid... (kind of). I guess I'll go with simple, flowy, bright, cute, & comfortable.
3 words to describe your personality.
spontaneous, creative, crazy
What makes you feel inspired?
Right now it's the book "Shepherding a Child's Heart" by Tedd Tripp
Favorite Scripture?
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Phil 1:6
why?
Oh, that's a crazy long story, but the short version is that this verse gives me so much hope... for a long, bitter part of my life it was the response I received from God when I would seek His healing and restoration, and it gives me hope to know that He will never give up on me. I am a work in progress, but it is His work, not mine. :)
Anything else we need to know about you? :)
I live in Colorado Springs with my wonderfully supportive husband and our sheltie, and we are expecting our first baby this August!
