Handmade Spotlight (and Giveaway!): dorianneagostini

Good morning readers! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! To continue on in the spirit of giving, I am posting TWO giveaways today! The first one is from Dorianne Agostini from dorianneagostini.etsy.com. Check out the feature and keep reading to find out how to win a $10 Gift Certificate good towards clothing and handbags!



Dorianne loves to make clothing, handbags, hair accesories, and jewelry. Her interest in this began when she used to watch her grandmother make beautiful creations for family and friends. This is when her passion for sewing and making jewelry start. She says it "is something that I enjoy so much to do, I feel free and happy. This is part of my life and I will do it for ever!"

This is her favorite item in her shop. "My favorite color is black and I think any women needs a cute black dress in her closet!" she says about this beautiful garment!



Dorianne gives this advice to those who are starting out on Etsy: "take good pictures, believe in [yourself] and to be persistent. There's a lot of talented sellers on Etsy and the competition is really strong. Just be yourself and do what love to do from your heart, don't follow what everyone is doing."

Her favorite shop on etsy is her friend, PriscillaDawn. "I love her style, is very sweet and dollycute!" says Dorianne.

When not on Etsy, Dorianne loves shopping, enjoying the peace of the forest, or staying at home with her fiance watching movies and cooking together.
