Fabulous Friday Features: Meet Redd of A Dame Named Redd!

Hello and welcome to the next installment of Friday Features, where I feature a great Etsy artisan each week. Do you know an artist who should be featured next? Do you want to be featured? Leave me a comment at the end of this post and I'll see what I can do!

~The Main Men in Redd's Life: Redd's Hubby and Adorable Son Ash!~

With that out of the way, please let me introduce you to Redd Hynes, owner and artist behind Handmade Fun by a Dame Named Redd AND The Dame's Yarn Fun Emporium. She is a great artist from the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada region and is here to show you a bit of what she does, and some great photos of her family!

Redd has two shops on Etsy and you sure don't want to miss them! She has some great, funky jewelry, accessories and Nom Nom Nom Balm (more on that later) in her Handmade Fun by a Dame Named Redd Etsy shop. She also has The Dame's Yarn Fun Emporium on Etsy where she sells great knitted and crocheted items for the whole family!

Here's what Redd has to say:
I've always loved making things. Both my mother and my grandmothers were creative women. They always encouraged me. I used to take drawing classes when I was a wee Dame. I remember cross stitching something for my mom with the help of my Nana when I was 10 or so.
~Redd Herself~

My first Etsy shop is Handmade Fun by a Dame Named Redd. In that shop I have jewelry, accessories and my own line of lip balm, Nom Nom Nom Balm! It opened up Feb. 5 of 2008.

I learned how to knit after my son was born and am quite addicted to that as well as crochet.
My second shop is The Dame's Yarn Fun Emporium. I wanted a place where I could showcase my fibre fun. It has slippers and fibre jewelry and things to keep you toasty warm. It opened this year on May 5, 2009.

I'll offer up a 20% off sale for a month after this gets posted for anyone who writes "Meghann sent me!" in the notes to seller (not including shipping).

Wow, what a great creative person you are and what a great discount! I hope everyone takes advantage of this very generous offer :)

Until Tomorrow....

Congratulation to Redd!
I find it difficult to tell you, Meghann, who should be featured next as I think all artistans and cat lovers all need to be featured!!!

Meghann I love this feature. This is exciting for me, because I never find anybody new on etsy.

Love Renee xoxo
