Discover These Shops: One Crafty Fox and Size Medium

>> Sunday, May 23

Diana is a small town girl living in the big city. A shopaholic, always impeccably and fashionably dressed for those just in case you get hit by a bus moments.
Armed with a sewing machine, a serger and round nose pliers, she is now ready to share her creations.
Her creating journey started with her mother teaching her to sew. In short order, Diana's dolls and teddy bears were the most stylish toys on the block.
She is a multi-lingual, she loves dark chocolate and coral colored nail polish.
She met her hunny at a wedding. She was the bridesmaid and he was the best man.

Diana has 2 Etsy shops, Size Medium and One Crafty Fox.
Let's get to know more about this prolific Etsy shop owner!

Tell us a little bit about yourself. 

My name is Diana, I live and work downtown Toronto and I just love this city! Everything I want is right at my doorstep: trendy shopping, night life hot spots, and an immense selection of dining. I love to eat and that's usually what I do at home with my hunny and my kitty. Yes, kitty gets to indulge in our meals too.

What first made you want to become an artist?

I have never really considered myself to be an artist, just someone with imagination who can figure things out. As a child I really enjoyed working with wood. My father is a carpenter so my brother and I would spend hours in his workshop hammering, sanding, and burning away. My brother and I also used to take apart every little gadget we could find (clocks, radios, etc) and then try to put them back together again. Sometimes with great success... other times... not so much. lol.

What item/s do you make?

I currently have two shops on Etsy: 1) SizeMedium which is filled with my handmade garments designed and sewn by me; and, 2) OneCraftyFox which is filled with practical but beautiful little trinkets. My mother is a tailor so the sewing has just always been a part of me. I learned how to piece together items at a very young age. I didn't start creating my little trinkets and jewelry until much later, I think that all started one day when I walked into a bead store and was flooded with ideas. I think I am most proud of my sewing. There is such a feeling of success when I can pull together a garment completely from scratch and make my mother proud.

What is your most favorite place in the world and why?

My most favorite place in the world would have to be Heidelberg, Germany. I have roots in Germany and this is the one place that I am always drawn to when I visit back home.

What would you like to be when you grow up?
When I grow up I would like to be me, with the same amount of imagination and fascination of when I was a child. We tend to lose that as we age.

What started you on Etsy?

I heard about Etsy from a friend, before I knew it, everyone in our circle was just raving about it!

What do you like the most/least about selling online?

What I like most about selling online is the convenience, what I like least is how time consuming it can be.
