Member Interview

Hi! Please tell us who you are and a bit about yourself.

My name is Ceylan. I am originally from Turkey. I live and work in RI. 

I own two shops on Etsy Paper in Style and Package in Style and recently started my blog

It was very tough to choose the name of my shop. I brainstormed with my sister over the phone for several weeks and one day she was reading "InStyle" magazine and she said "what about paper in style" and I immediately loved it! My second shop name was very easy after first :)

How did you learn about Etsy Project Embrace?
I learned through treasuries that the members created. I was being picked but had no idea what the purpose of the team was. Then one day, I went to the team page, as well as the blog and decided to join to the team with a great cause.

What is your favorite item in your shop at the moment?

What is your favorite possession, and why do you cherish it?
My dog Bonita! Not sure if it's OK to refer to her as a possession :)

What do you collect?
I collect wooden spools and few of them are featured in I recently started collecting vintage hat pins!

Where would you like to be and what do you hope to be doing ten years from now?
Where ever I am, I think I will enjoy. I LOVE CHANGE :) And hopefully I will still be creating!
