Let's get to know Labarradulce and Regina :
What would you like us to know about you?I`m a single Industrial and Graphic designer, I`ve been selling online since 2004 in Guatemala in my website and since 2011 on Etsy.
I`ve an Industrial designer degree but I`ve always worked also in graphic design as a freelance and I recently discovered my passion in Cake decorating, I think that its just like Product design but in sugar.
I live in Guatemala city, Guatemala and I am very proud of my country, I just started to learn K`iche` an ancient Mayan language talked in most part of Guatemala besides Spanish, and its a very difficult task!!
If you live in the USA, Guatemala is the next country below Mexico on a map :)
What prompted you to open an Etsy Shop?I found Etsy by accident searching online, in Guatemala the site isn't that popular. At first I was looking for a site just to accept online payments for my clients in Guatemala without knowing that Etsy will be a new marketplace for my graphic designs. I joined Etsy on 2010 but started selling until last year because you can`t receive your payments in Guatemala so I just spend back my profits online. I hope you can retrieve your payments in a bank account.
How did you come up with your shop name?
Siete invitaciones means "seven invitations" because I offer you a variety of party supplies and mostly invitations, one invitation for each day of the week, seven is the holy number in many religions and is my lucky number :) la barra dulce means "the candy bar" because I sell and design candy stations, cakes and candy goodies also, but just in my country for now.
What inspires you?As a designer I`m always looking for new design inspirations online and in my surroundings, looking for ways to fix things or improve them. I love the Mayan traditional textiles and get a lot of color palettes from them and in Guatemala you can look out the window and see a lot of different colors You can have many seasons in one day in the morning there is a clear blue sky, a little Rain at noon and in the afternoon some orange and purple colored clouds!
Which item in your shop is your favorite to make/find?I love to do the custom DIY Party kits, to work with the parents ideas, help them to make extra special their birthday parties
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what are the 3 crafty must haves?you must have a pair of scissors to survive, I love punches, and if I find electricity a computer with Freehand or Photoshop I can`t go 1 day without using these CAD programs.
Where else can we find you?I run some FB pages, a giveaway blog, my websites, etc.
