Featured Fridays - Boho Rain

I would like you to meet Natalie Robbins and her Etsy shop:  Boho Rain.

If you love Bohemian Funky Hippie Boho Bags, Then you will love the items at Boho Rain.

Let's get to know Boho Rain and Natalie:

What would you like us to know about you?
I am a wife and mother of two boys. I have always loved art and appreciate all types of creativity. In my spare time I like to sew bags for my Etsy shop. I also love painting, beading, nature, reading, thrift store shopping, and spending time being happy with my family.
What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?
I opened an Etsy shop because my friends and family encouraged me to sell my bags. I am so happy to have a wonderful way to share my creations!

How did you come up with your shop name?
To me 'Boho' is a style that is almost like a modern hippie, or bohemian style. I feel this is the best way to describe my bags and other items. I wanted the name of my shop to reflect the things I create. And I chose 'Rain' because I love the rain and I love Rain for a girls name.

How would you describe your shop?
I would describe my shop as fun, funky, unique, colorful and interesting!

What inspires you?
I am inspired by color, cultural designs, vintage, the 60' and 70's, nature, corduroy, and unusual fabric colors and textures.

Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?
My favorite item to make is corduroy messenger bags from re-purposed fabric.

If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?
If I were stuck on an island, I would have to have paint, beads and fabric.

Where else can we find you?
and of course

Is there anything else you would like to share?
I would also like to say that I love using re-purposed fabrics: turning something old and unwanted into something new and functional. I feel it is one tiny way I can do my part to decrease the items in the landfills! I also enjoy connecting to people who have similar interests, and I welcome any and all comments or feedback!

For the month of May I will be offering this special:
May is my birthday month, and I would like to give you a gift! For the whole month of May, if you purchase any bag from my shop, you will get a necklace of your choice for free! You must choose one necklace from my shop (DO NOT purchase it) and contact me either before or at time of purchasing the bag, telling me which one you want. I will include the one you choose at no extra shipping cost with your bag! If you don't tell me which necklace you would like to have, I will not choose for you and you will not get a free necklace. Details are also available on my Facebook page and at my Etsy shop. Happy month of May!

I will ship anything internationally. If you need something shipped somewhere other than the US, you can contact me and I will provide a shipping quote for you.
Thanks so much Natalie.  It has been great getting to know you and discovering your shop and your lovely items.

Now please show Natalie some support and let us know which of her pieces are your favorite from her shop! Oh...and go ahead and heart a few of her items along with her shop :)
