These are the GORGEOUS cards that will be the prize for the giveaway - A $25 value. (click on the link to see them more closely)

Let's get to know Judi a little better.

1. Where do you live and a little something about family?

My name is Judi.
I live just outside Golden, Colorado on a 1/2 acre in the midst of horse country.


My husband and I have an small flock of chickens and one duck (who thinks he's a chicken). We have lived here for 22 years, having moved to the country to raise our 6 sons, 5 of whom are now married and living within 30 minutes of home. We are blessed to be able to see them and to enjoy our 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. We also have another little one on the way in the spring.



2. How did you get your start on Etsy?


I first began selling my artwork and some of my vintage treasures on Ebay. I learned about Etsy shortly after it started, but was also juggling a job as a life and career coach, so I put the idea of a shop on the back burner.


Last year I opened my first shop -- with all my vintage pieces -- as we began to be aware my job might not last. I opened the other two shops within a few months after seeing success in my first one. I love the community and the ability to connect with other artists!


3. What is a typical day for you?


I don't think there is a typical day! I juggle a lot of balls. . .from collecting eggs and gathering up produce from my garden, to canning and running errands. I work to fit in my creating and photography in little snatches wherever I can. I carry a notebook with me so I'm able to jot down any inspiration I discover through the day and typically I work more strategically on my creating and shop listings for an hour or two in the mornings and then again in the evenings.



4.If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?





I would love to go to Europe. I have made a number of Etsy friends there, and the history of the UK, France, Italy and Spain have always intrigued me.


5. What is your favorite Bible verse?

Jeremiah 6:16 -- "Look and see, and ask for the Old Paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls."


6.What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?


I love the vintage books in my VintageLegacyStudio shop -- but I also enjoy the variety of creating in both my PocketComfort shop and my Imaginuity shop. I am a "change and variety" girl -- so that's really hard to say!
