Monday Marketplace Feature for OFG

Primgals Primitive Palette
Monday Marketplace feature for OFG Etsy Team

Today I am featuring someone that I can first hand tell you about her skills. I had the wonderful pleasure of selling Jody's painted soaps in my Store I had in Texas and she does amazing work. My customers could not believe the detail she would get on a bar of soap!!

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
My shop is named Primgals Primitive Palette. I chose the name as it best represented what I do. I love to paint primitive items for the home, for everyday use and holidays.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
I have been on Etsy since January of 2008

3. What type of items do you offer?
I am very eclectic. I love to paint on found items at thrift stores, tag sales etc. I also purchase some of my surfaces, such as the switch plates, and soaps.

4. How long have you been crafting?
I have crafted all my life, starting at the age of 8 when I took my first ceramic class. I have had a love of painting ever since.

5. Who or What inspires you?
Colonial or Primitive art of any kind. I love to see homes that are decorated in this style. I have some very favorite artists also such as Terrye French, Donna Atkins, and John Sliney.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
I just love my soaps! They are unique, as I go through a five step process to make them appear as old as they look. it is always such fun to come up with new and different designs for them. Plus they are affordable, and I love being able to produce an item that everyone can afford to add to their home decor.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
I am primarily on Etsy but I do have a shop on Artfire, and occasionally I have a few items on Ebay.
Be sure and Visit Jody on Etsy
