Crafterall is a gorgeous little shop full of unique items that I’m sure you will love!
About the owner (in her own words):
“My name is Marnie (named after the Hitchcock film), and I live in lovely Shorewood, Minnesota, just west of the Twin Cities. Before joining Etsy, I taught high school English for eight years.
I have enjoyed working with my hands since I was just a squirt. My “crafting area” grew from a decorated cardboard box to my own craft room. Now I have two squirts of my own, a corner of the basement overflowing with crafty supplies, and a patient hubby who lets me make things.

About the shop:
Choosing a name for my shop was like choosing an image for a tattoo — I wanted it to be meaningful, easily recognizable, and something that represented what I do. Since I have a pull towards all things crafty, I created a name that alludes to multiple media, purpose, and price. In a nutshell, I hope to create items that appeal to a diverse group of people who share one common trait: the appreciation of handmade works.
I’ve started with my most familiar territory: paper. I like to fold it, cut it, and share it. In the near future, I hope to also offer fabric pieces and sketches as well.
Some of my favorite “things” include: trees, the color blue, being “green,” retired racing greyhounds, comfortable shoes, Ted Kooser poetry, hanging clothes on the line outside, and singing in the car.”
This very gracious lady is giving away $22.50 for a one-time shopping spree for anything in her shop!
Check out this Wall Topographic Landscape that made it to the front page of Etsy today!
She collects the scraps from her work and sends them to Kendra at GreenPost.etsy.com. Kendra then works her magic on those scraps to turn them into functional and beautiful recycled paper, paper pulp magnets, brooches and buttons, and plantable cards and tags with embedded flower seeds. Some of those plantable cards are sent back to Marnie and she will send them out as thank-yous with every order from her shop.
Now, you have a chance (many chances) to win a $22.50 gift certificate for your very own shopping spree!
