Featured Artist - The Enchanted Cupboard

Who are you? Beccijo

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link?

How did you come up with your shop name? It took a long time. I tried out many things to get the feel that I wanted. Something magical, enchanting and that would have many things in it. When it was right, it felt right! Many reviews have said that the name was right for my shop. It also makes me giggle when people call me enchanted in the forums and for a busy mom a good giggle can make or brake your day!

What do you create? Do you create for children or adults, women or men? I create wooden toys, playsets, playboxes and cake toppers. My items are for any age but most are for the 3 to 103 range. Many adults buy my thing as decorations!

What do you like about Etsy? I love the team aspect. I love all the changes that are happening and I am excited to see what is next. BUT there is nothing like an inbox full of etsy sale notices!

Where do you find inspiration for your products? My childhood and my kids. I love to watch my kids play, to see how they use he different items. The other day my daughter was playing with the Mermaids and asked where the daddy was, I had not thought of it but now I need to make one!

What do you love about your business? I love that it is a part of me that I get to share with the world. This past holiday season my toys went all over the world. I could not sleep Christmas Eve cause I was too excited about all the kids opening my toys and finding my treasures under their tree.

What is your favorite product(s) right now?
My mushroom stacker

What makes you unique at Etsy? A lot of people sell the wooden dolls, some have started making playsets but I have such a vast amount of fun items. I also keep a lot of the sets without dolls for those that may already have wooden dolls by me or others.

What other street teams are you a member of? I have just been made leader of the NaturalKids Team
