Why "Daydreaming Escape..."?
The answer is so simple...Life in general is filled with ups and downs, good and bad, sad and happy moments, situations and circumstances...Because of all that...Don't we ALL need an escape...a DAYDREAM ESCAPE?!! I create this Blog for all of us who need to escape in a dream once in a while...I want this to be about beautiful softness, romance and relaxation. Of course...a little bit of humour too!!! Enjoy!

Rendez-Vous with Sweet Sincerity...

I invite you  once again in a Daydreaming Escape rendez-vous...This time with Bethany...A wonderful artist and designer of OOAK jewellery! Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your work. How did it all start?

My name is Bethany, and I live in Bangor, Maine with my loving husband Matthew. We just build a new house in time for me to get serious about fully pursuing selling the jewelry I make on Etsy! I’m glad these two events coincided, because I hardly had the room for this venture when we lived in our cute little one bedroom apartment! I, like many others, had dreams of starting a creative business, but I didn’t really know what creative direction to go in. I loved fashion, painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, but one night, it came to me…jewelry! I love jewelry, so much so that I never used to go out of the house unless I had on at least a pair of earrings. My jewelry was always carefully chosen to match my outfits, and jewelry always topped my wish lists when people asked what I would like for a gift! There is something captivating about jewelry; it can be so many things, it can be meaningful or whimsical, bold or delicate, everyday simple or once in a lifetime spectacular. It sparkles, shines, shimmers, and melts the hearts of women all around the globe. 

So, after it hit me that one night when I could barely sleep thinking about all the possibilities of having my very own jewelry business, I started out on my own to try and make some jewelry. I even created an Etsy account and listed some items, but I was so busy at the time that I really didn’t give my Etsy shop the attention it deserved. All the while, my friends and family encouraged me to take a little more time to develop my skills and continue with my business plan. Finally, after lots of procrastination, when I had more time on my hands, I went for it! I started learning different techniques, investigating how to make my Etsy shop a success, renewing my items regularly, and filling my shop to the brim! Now, as I continue to create and find new ways to promote my jewelry, SweetSincerity continues to grow.

Who or what inspires you?

I think I am most inspired not by ideas that I come up all by myself, but by the ideas that the materials I find foster in me. Just the way certain beads look together, with their unique shapes and colors, is the starting point of most of my designs. I’m also inspired by people and the distinctive color palates that define them. Most people have a color palate comfort zone when it comes to dressing, and without thinking about it, we come identify them by it. Sometimes, these unique color combinations inspire me to create a piece with someone’s personality in mind. Among the many other things that inspire me and often send me into a creative frenzy are things that are intensely feminine or glamorous, new jewelry making techniques, and practically anything shiny. 

What do you love most of what you do?

I really do love every part of the process: getting lost and inspired in a seemingly unending sea of stones, beads, and gems while shopping for new materials; creating a new piece from a pile of beads, watching it take shape into something surprising and breathtaking; taking and editing photos of a piece to make it look its absolute best; and describing the piece in vivid detail and colorful language for its listing.

The thing I like most of all though, is sending out a finished piece in a beautifully wrapped box with a handwritten thank you note. It feels like I’m sending a friend a special present every time, and I can breath a sigh of relief and a feel a sense of accomplishment at a job well done.

Friday night my sweet husband surprised me with a lovely bottle of Champagne "Laurent Perrier"
...That was so lovely...he knows how much I have an expensive taste when it comes to good wine!!! I enjoy every drop of it!!!

So, under the influence of this wonderful Champagne I decided to create a treasury on Etsy: "Champagne...In a glass?"

A Daydreaming Rendez-vous With Eva...

Because I am sharing my daydreaming Escape with you...I thought to share as well some of my favorites Artists and Designers. Escape yourself in this delightful rendez-vous with Eva...who generously took the time to describe to us into inspiring words what it took to get her dreams happened...Escape in this heartwarming Daydream visit with Eva...

Tell us a bit about yourself and your work. How did it all start?

My name is Eve but my mom calls me Eva. I work as an art director for a few magazines here in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. EvaJuliet was born when I felt the need of creating my own graphic design artworks with an entire liberty.
I dreamt of creating my own graphic projects without any restriction and constrain for a very long time but I always put it off because I didn’t have the time or it was not the good time for several reasons. From that moment on, I got the idea of the Make it Happen poster. I needed some reminder, some motivator, something that could help me every day to reach my dream. I thought maybe it could help somebody else and I decided to start my Etsy shop to sell this poster.
During the process, I have realized that it’s not about leaving everything spontaneously to follow your dreams but it’s about making one tiny action, every day, that brings you more and more closer of the situation you want to be in. But the most important is to make the first step in this way.

Who or what inspires you?

I find my inspiration at unsuspected places. One day, I found the inspiration for an illustration in a knurl, on my living-room wood floor! Inspiration is hidden everywhere! You just have to keep your eyes and your mind opened. Inspiration could also comes from a situation. For example, my Choose Joy poster was created after an unfortunate incident. I said to myself; I could choose to be angry about this situation and loose my time and energy, or, I could play down the importance of this, realize it’s not the end of the world and get back my good mood. The Choose Joy poster was born!

What do you love most of what you do?

Everything. I feel totally and entirely happy about everything as regards EvaJuliet. It’s like eating sweet cakes with a perfect café au lait, sitting at a table outside a café, by a splendid sunny day, with your best friend! Pure pleasure! I love to create, find new ideas, I love to take pictures, to receive comments from customers and chatting a bit with them. I like to go to the Post Office to send my illustrations all over the world. I like to think I propagate positive thoughts in the world.
