Getting to Know Garden22DesignStudio

 Hi team! It's time to get to know Cristy, from Garden22DesignStudio.  She also runs a vintage shop called Garden22Vingtage. Cristy was also the winner of the Itsastitch treasury challenge, so I thought it was time to share a little about her here. 

Angie: Who inspired you to be an Etsian?

Cristy: Nobody really inspired me, I was told about Etsy by our Realtor while in the process of selling our house in Indiana and moving to Texas last summer. After getting settled in here, I went to check out the site and became obsessed and finally took the jump and opened my shop mid January.

Angie: What is your favorite thing about Etsy?

Cristy: I love that I have found a group of fellow artists that have given me so much support through Curation Nation. I am actually kind of a shy person (!!! shocking I know) so I am so happy to have found so many talented community members that I can personally trust to ask if I have a question, and so many that I now count as friends. This team rocks.">this photograph.
I took it on a day that I remember fondly as a pretty awesome family adventure :)">source

Angie: What is one thing you would like everyone to know about you?

Cristy: I can't think of anything that I really want people to know about me, so you get my oddest quirk: for as long as I can remember, I have found 4-leaf clovers. Granted, not NEARLY as much since we moved to Texas, but I still find them. I will just be walking and I see them. It is so strange. My husband calls it the worlds most worthless talent, but don't let him fool you as I know he is secretly jealous. Try as he might, he has yet to find one, ever. It is such a pleasure to be on a walk with him and at the end, hand him a small bouquet of various sized 4 leaf clovers :) Maybe this St. Patrick's day I will finally put them to good use on some cards or something.

 It was great getting to know you, Cristy!


  1. Cristy is constantly making me laugh on Twitter! This lady is hilarious!! :D oxox!

  2. I think finding four-leaf clovers is an awesome talent, and I agree that your husband is probably super jealous :-D

    Cristy, I think you are awesome, and I am so happy to have found you on Twitter and through this kick-ass team. This interview, as most things you do, made me smile :-)

  3. Wonderful article Cristy! It is interesting to find out that you too are a "shy" person. The internet is a wonderful tool that let's us open up to people when we typically wouldn't face to face.
    Hey and send me a couple of those four leaf clovers, I could use some extra good-luck!

    hugs - ♥toni
