From New Jersey Hannahshandwork
I started my third week with the state of New Jersey. This week ;different from other weeks, I will be introducing more than one very talented artists from the Garden State. My first guest is Hannahshandwork whose outstanding book bindings took my attention. Her work has a taste of royalty and an eye for detail. Please enjoy my interview with her.
S: What is your name and what is the story behind your shop’s name?
H: My name is Hannah Smith, and my rather unimaginative shop name came from thinking I was going to sell a variety of items when I first opened my shop, and I wanted everything handmade to fit in.
S:How did you find Etsy and what made you join Etsy?
H: I found Etsy through a friend who already had a shop here, who knew I could sew and book bind, and was looking for some way to work from home.
H: When I'm designing a book, I usually put out all my leather, materials and embossing tool, and create a book in my mind, to decide what looks best together.
S:What is your favorite book?
H: I love to read, and I don't think I can narrow it down to just one book. I think the books I return to most often, though, are the ones by Charles Dickens and Jane Austen.
S: What was your last travel destination?
H: My last trip was my most frequent trip: down to Virginia to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and four crazy-but-wonderful nephews.
H: I love spending time with family and friends, I love to read, I take long walks, and I visit the library's classic movie section regularly.
