Nevita's Boutique-a-holic at Etsy

This week’s featured Etsy shop is HANDKNIT AND GOBELIN BOUTIQUE-A-HOLIC, a shop full of gorgeous handknits by Nevita of Sofia, Europe.  Nevita learned to knit, crochet, sew, and create gobelin tapestry at a young age whenever she visited her grandmother during the school holidays. Over the years she continued exploring these handicrafts, but realized that knitting and gobelin tapestry were the ones that gave her the most pleasure and satisfaction. Her creations symbolize how beautiful and precious life is.

Her scarves are so lovely – her spring collection is featured on her front page, but be sure to look at the winter collection (which is on sale)! There are a variety of rich colors and textures in many fashionable styles. There is also a section with adorable hand knitted baby wear.

Having an Etsy shop allows Nevita to spend time with her beautiful baby girl and to create beautiful pieces of clothing and art.
Here's where else you can find Nevita:

I am a member of the newly created Bloggers Street Team. One of our goals is to blog about one of our members each week. This week I’d like to feature Chriscreaclub.

Christel Nolle from the Netherlands is the owner of Chriscreaclub at Etsy. She makes darling crocheted key rings, pin cushions, bags, and little gift tags. Her love of color is evident in her work.

According to Christel, she is “addicted to eating ice cubes, drinking cappuccino and twittering. Having creative ideas all the time. Working on getting the ideas out of my head and making them real. I love (besides my boyfriend, our daughter, my family & friends) colors, reading, blogging,  bags, rings and a lot of other things. Hope to be famous once in this lifetime. “
