ETSY SELLER GOES PRO How one Etsy shop owner quit her day job to create heirloom handmades for a living.

EDITOR'S NOTE My husband and I married more than four years ago; the perfect end to a whirlwind year of wedding planning, MTV appearances and moving cross-country. Any married couple will tell you how quickly a wedding day flies. Ours was no different, but a few moments live fresh in our memories: my husband's pregnant pause following my emotional delivery of self-written vows and then simply saying, "ditto," the euphoria felt as we walked arm and arm down the aisle as husband and wife, and my grandparents, married more than 50 years, dancing to John Lennon's "Grow Old With Me." No marriage is perfect, but when one spans half a century, you wonder what the secret is. My grandfather pulled my groom aside that night and offered his marriage advice in two words: humor and patience. 2012 held extreme highs and lows for me. I gave birth to our first son in the spring, and as if heaven needed to restore balance, we lost my grandpa to an unexpected heart attack in the summer. I can't type those words without a knot in my stomach and tears in my eyes. Whether 2012 brought you huge triumphs or mountains that felt insourmountable, I wish you health and happiness in this new year. However, if it doesn't pan out quite like you hope, then I humbly suggest humor and patience to get you through. EMMAMAG.COM 03

CHICKEN STEW SERVES 6

Adapted from recipe by Giada De Laurentiis

2 tablespoons olive oil 2 stalks celery, cut into bite size pieces SERVES 6 2 carrots, peeled, cut into 3 tablespoons olive oil bite-size pieces 1 medium onion (6 ounces), 1 small onion, chopped thinly sliced 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced chopped fresh garlic tomatoes 1 head very fresh cauliflower 2 1/2 cups low-sodium (about 1-1/2 pounds), chicken broth broken into florets 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, 5 1/2 cups water, divided torn into pieces extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon tomato paste to taste 1 bay leaf Freshly ground black 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme pepper and sea salt, leaves to taste 2 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp fresh ground black Warm the olive oil in a heavy 5 pepper 1/2-quart saucepan. Sweat the 1 tsp sugar onion and garlic in the olive oil 2 organic free range chicken over low heat without letting it breasts (about 1.5 pounds brown for 15 minutes. total) Add the cauliflower, salt to 1 (15-ounce) can organic taste, and 1/2 cup water. Raise kidney beans, drained

CAULIFLOWER SOUP

the heat slightly, cover the pot tightly and stew the cauliflower for 15 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Then add another 4 1/2 cups hot water, bring to a low simmer and cook an additional 20 minutes uncovered. Working in batches, purĂŠe the soup in a blender (or use a hand blender stirring inside pot) to a very smooth, creamy consistency. Let the soup stand for 20 minutes. In this time it will thicken slightly. Serve hot, drizzled with a thin stream of extra-virgin olive oil (red chili EVOO is delicious drizzled in it) and freshly ground black pepper to top it off. INGREDIENT TIP: Find chile olive oil here. Adds a great spice to cauliflower soup, and can also be used when making huevos rancheros.

Heat olive oil in a heavy 5 1/2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the celery, carrot, and onion. Saute the vegetables until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in canned tomatoes with their juices, chicken broth, basil, tomato paste, bay leaf, thyme, salt, pepper and sugar. Add the chicken breasts; press to submerge. Bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until the chicken is almost cooked through, turning the chicken breasts over and stirring the mixture occasionally, about 25 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the chicken breasts to a work surface and cool for 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. Add the kidney beans to the pot and simmer until the liquid has reduced into a stew consistency, about 10 minutes.

Cut the chicken into bite- size pieces and return meat to the pot. Bring the stew just to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve topped with fresh basil leaves. SERVING SUGGESTION: Pairs well with a baguette.

RED BEAN & VEGETABLE SOUP SERVES 4

2 medium parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (1 1/2 cups) 1 sweet potato, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1 small rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces 2 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices 2 celery stalks, cut into 1/4-inch slices 1 medium onion, diced 2-3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 3 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth 1 (15 ounce) can small red beans, rinsed and drained 2 teaspoons fresh thyme Preheat oven to 450 degress. In a large glass dish toss parsnips, sweet potato, rutabaga and carrots with oil. Sprinkle with salt. Spread vegetables in a single layer in glass dish. Place dish in the oven for 2025 minutes (or until vegetables start to brown). In a large stock pot, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and celery and cook 5-6 minutes. Add broth and bring broth and beans to a boil. Add roasted vegetables and reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes (or until vegetables are tender). Stir in thyme. SERVING SUGGESTION: Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Q&A

Three words to describe your personal style? Classic, feminine, modern.

Was there a tipping point for your blog?

Honestly, not really. I started my blog more than three years ago and have seen my content and readership evolve and grow over time. [When] I started posting my everyday outfits, I found a great passion for and love from the online style community.

Do you blog full-time?

Yes, and no. Right now I am a full-time graduate student. However, with taking photos, editing, writing, admin duties, etc., I probably spend over 40 hours a week working on my blog.

What are your closet staples?

A classic white t-shirt, dark leggings, comfortable sandals, and a fun dress!

Advice for building blog readership?

Be yourself! Blog about what makes you happy, and connect with like-minded bloggers and readers. People can tell when you're being fake with the content you are sharing, so stay true to yourself.

Favorite spots in Phoenix? Frances Vintage, Lola Coffee, and the GROWop.

Your looks for this shoot are all pulled from Frances. Tell us what you love about the boutique.

I started going into Frances a few years back and fell in love with the store's charming, eclectic feel. Since then, I've connected with the owner, Georganne Bryant, and the other sweet members of the Frances staff. I adore their blog, and I'm a big fan of their passion for Phoenix.

ding. They had traveled from Michigan and stayed in Brooklyn, navigating the city streets and subways. I was beyond grateful for their Midwestern smiles, and I wanted them to see a strong representation of our shared home state. SH: When did sales really take

off? And how did you feel? AS: Our sales really took off during the holidays of 2010. By early December, we had to shut our shop. We had reached max capacity and still needed time to make and ship before Christmas. I felt incredibly humbled that something we made was going to be a Christmas gift

for thousands of people. I am actually incredibly hard to shop for, so in my mind I was thinking, "these have to be perfect, people are spending money on them for their loved ones." SH: A.Heirloom has received a lot of national exposure from the likes of The Today Show, EMMAMAG.COM 51

Food Network, etc. How did the media exposure first start? Was it a domino effect after that or did you seek out press mentions one at a time? AS: Absolutely a domino effect. If someone was requesting information, it was there that day. We worked very hard to make the product completely accessible to the requests. I hired a messenger service, and we were on the go after that. I am now trying to harness some PR skills, but it remains to be seen if I can manage to do it on my own with our next product line. I would have to say that Joanna Goddard at Cup of Jo has been the most supportive, as she is with all of the products she finds. She is such a delightful and kind-hearted person. She has been extremely loyal to us as a brand. SH: Every Etsy shop owner covets a front page spot - any advice? AS: Ha! My mantra: take good pictures. I used a liberty of London fabric from our wedding as a background, and I really think that caught the eyes of some visual people. I also know a fair amount about Photoshop from the architecture days, so it is a secret weapon. I feel like you need to be sophisticated in your representation, it really matters. SH: When did you feel the need to invest in creative packaging and what other little tweaks do you feel add to the overall professionalism of your product? AS: We knew the day we got our first holiday orders that we needed a box that could go in stores and be used as a shipper. We needed to generate excitement when the order arrived in the mail. I think we tried stickers, and inserts, but it was actually a big cost saving effort to find a box manufacturer

that could work with our color scheme and get us a great rate on the printing. We also found along the way, that there were certain states that would continually break due to shipping, so we set out for damage-free shipping. This year, we are back at packaging, refining the interior shipping material so that it is secure and super professional. The point is always refining and going over and over to make things work better. SH: How has Etsy changed your career path? AS: I am beyond satisfied to be doing what I do. I wake up everyday, and I want to keep making things work better. My husband and I have worked so hard to make this business function well. We had a wonderful start, but now we are facing the challenge of moving forward and staying current. Building a business is a wonderful never ending puzzle. SH: Mom/work balance is tough for any small business owner. How do you achieve it? AS: I can't say I am balanced. We have a delightful babysitter for our son with us 18 hours a week. I work from home, so that helps a great deal. Our son is the one who seems most

balanced, he is such a happy and good-natured person. If he wasn't as easy-going as he has been, I would not be able to accomplish anything. Bill, my husband also runs another small business in Brooklyn, so there is some flexibility in our schedules to overlap when necessary. We have everything we need here, toys, photo-studio, computer, toddler music party, a little part time shipping operation, printing, etc. I would like to get out and mingle a bit and meet some new collaborators, but I don't have the nighttime option of going out and about at this point. SH: What do you know now that you wish you’d have known as you first started out on this venture? AS: I wish I had known more about product launch and preparation. It would have been so wonderful to have had the product in mind, made the packaging, designed the product materials and been completely ready to have every single package ship out the same, with a very high quality of representation every time. But thankfully, I can get up every day and work on getting better and better with a very grateful smile on my face.

Since wax paper doesn't easily go through printers without a little help, I created a guide for the wax paper using standard copy paper. Cut a piece of wax paper slightly larger than an 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.


DIY

FOLD

Fold over the excess wax paper behind all sides and tape down. You'll want to print directly on the wax paper, so make sure you know which way to load the paper in your printer. For my printer, I put it in the tray wax paper side down.

WATER

Wet the wood: Right before you hit print, wet your piece of wood. Wetting the wood is what draws the ink from the wax paper into the pores of the wood. You don’t want it dripping wet, but damp. The time it takes you to print your graphic will give the wood enough time to soak in excess water.

4 TRANSFER

Once the wax paper prints, be sure not to drop or touch the graphic. Line up your graphic where you want it on the piece of wood and lightly set it down (graphic side down). Be careful not to move it once it touches the wood. Using the edge of your plastic card, slowly smooth over the top side of the paper, going over every area with ink underneath.
