Handmade Gift Feature & GIVEAWAY from Craftivity Designs! ~ Diane's Vintage Zest!

Handmade Gift Feature & GIVEAWAY from Craftivity Designs!

Today is the LAST day of the "25 Days of Handmade Gifts!"  I cannot believe it!  I feel like it just started, and we have met so many great shops out there that I am a bit sad that it has to end.  :(

Anyways, let us get to today's feature from Erica and Lora of Craftivity Designs!  I chose the shop from these lovely ladies as my last shop, because their prints would be perfect as a last minute gift.  And I really mean last minute, because they are a digital gift that you can gift as the file, or print yourself lickety split!  I actually won a giveaway from the two ladies a while back, and lucky for me the agreed to give away one of their pretty prints to a lucky reader!

But first, let's read a little bit about these two Kentucky gals!


Tell me a little bit about yourself!

We are both from Louisville, KY and met years ago through our church.  We each enjoyed scrapbooking;  which was how we first started spending time together crafting and creating things.  Once DIY blogs become popular, we both started reading them and loved the idea of being able to share our creative ideas with others.  It wasn't until a few years later that we finally decided to jump in and start an Etsy Shop and our own blog.  We have been blogging and creating printable art for our Etsy Shop for just over a year now. It has been a great adventure -- you can learn more here!

Where did the name of your store come from?

We spent a lot of time brainstorming name ideas without any luck.  One day while making a list of words that described us and our love for DIY projects, we came up with Craftivity Designs.  Craftivity is the combination of both crafting and creativity which fits us both so well.  It is our love for crafting and creating that bonded us together as friends; and motivated us to share our DIY adventures with others.

What is your favorite item?

Erica -- My favorite item in our shop is our custom state prints! I love how they can be special to everyone yet unique to individuals and their hometown or favorite city.

Lora -- I am a huge map-lover, so our Joy to the World Print is one of my favorites. A close second is this one, celebrating "My Old Kentucky Home."

What is your most popular item?

Our most popular item is definitely our "I love you More Than.." sports team prints.  And as much as Erica hates to admit it (being a Louisville fan), we have definitely sold more prints to Kentucky Fans than any other team.

Where do you get the inspiration for your work?

Often times it is art we'd like in our own homes. For example, when Lora was trying to figure out how to integrate the stag head trend into her home we created this customizable print for our shop.

What makes your store unique?

Even though we are happy to design artwork for any state, we show extra love to our home state, Kentucky. Like our Kentucky is Home print and our Louisville and Lexington Subway Art.

Do you take custom orders?

Yes, we do.  Customers can click on the "Contact Shop Owner" button from the main page of our Etsy Shop. In the message, the customer can share with us the all the details of what they would like created. We'll reply with the cost and details, as well as creating a custom listing just for that customer. We have had simple custom orders -- like changing a color, print size, or wording in an existing print -- to complete, start from scratch orders {like this print, which was originally a custom design}.

When is the last day I can order in time for Christmas Day?

Any of our printables that say "Instant Digital Download" under the Overview section on the Listing Page can be ordered all the way up to {and even on} Christmas Day.  If you are ordering a print that has customization, please check the shipping policies on that specific listing. We'll update the shipping time based on our current backlog of work. If you would like to request a custom print for Christmas, please contact us and depending on the nature of the item, we will let you know whether we can complete it in time.
