This week’s fantastic giveaway comes from Tiffany at Teroldego and Tomatoes! I LOVE stationary and cards and any kind of paper really, so I just might enter this giveaway myself. But I’ll control myself. Read a little about Tiffany and then enter the giveaway at the bottom.
Tell me a little but about yourself.
A little bit about me…By day, I work for a national landscape company. At night I am an etsy addict, and I am completing my MBA at Rutgers Business School. I love gardening and cooking, and doing things the long way. We like to spend whole weekends sometimes making cheese from scratch, canning tomatoes and cooking delightful meals.
What do you like about where you live?
My husband and I live in Highland Park, right outside New Brunswick, where we both went to College at Rutgers. Living close to New Brunswick is very nostalgic for us, we enjoy walking through the campus when school is out, and eating lunch outside the beautiful campus buildings.
What is the wedding industry like where you live?
The wedding industry where I live…Living close to New Brunswick and going to Rutgers University has allowed us to meet and network with a ton of talented people. When we got married this past June, we tried to use friends as vendors as much as possible. Our DJ is a radio “DJ” for the local Rutgers Radio, our videographer attended Rutgers with a close friend of ours, we used a local restaurant that my husband used to work at to cater the event, which was held outdoors at Rutgers Gardens, a lovely park we visit often.
How did you start to sell on Etsy?
We made all of our wedding invitations, favors, thank you cards, menus, programs and more for our wedding. Everyone kept telling us that we should be selling this stuff. So we started listing a couple of items here and there on Etsy, and little by little we started selling! Brides are our biggest customers, sometimes requesting different quantities, colors and personalizations.
Where can we find you?
You can find us on etsy, and on twitter. On Twitter we are TeroldegoTomato…twitter wouldn’t let us spell out our entire Etsy name. Follow us! We do giveaways on twitter, and we share fabulous treasuries!
What is your style like?
My style ranges from simple and clean, to bright colorful and whimsical. I like layered textures that jump off the page.
What gives you inspiration?
I am inspired by the colors and textures I find in nature. I love working in my garden, visiting other peoples gardens, and just being outside! I love discovering new plants or insects I have never seen before!
Any advice you can give to brides?
Having been a recent bride myself, my advice is to soak up every moment of the planning and partying because it goes by in a flash! Picking the right vendor and budgeting your life with your new partner-to-be is very stressful, and when its over the stress of deliberating whether to go with pool blue, mermaid blue, sky blue, navy blue seems hilarious, and its then that you realize how much closer all these wedding negotiations have brought you together.
This week you can win a set of 8 wedding dress cards stamped in black on any color paper you wish!
