Featured artist...Lena form HandyHappyHearts

Hello dear friends and readers this week I bring to you Lena.  Now Lena has three wonderful shops HandyHappyHeartsHandyHappy, HandyHappyTeddy.  She sells many lovely things there such as hearts,  houses, sculptures and teddy bears.  

Thank you for visiting and I hope you are having a nice weekend.

1. Tell us as little or as much as you would like about yourself.
I live and work in Ukraine, Europe and I am marketing analyst, Irish dancer - and multi crafter with life long experience. I did it as long as I can remember: drawing, painting, sewing or knitting. I used to make stuffed toys since when I was maybe 6 or 7 years old and year ago it turned into making collection artist bears. Also I make funny silly paintings with no social meaning - those ones which just make you smile or think of a nice simple moment of your life. I like to work with clay and salt dough, and also to sew little fun stuff - useful or useless. I like the moment when people like something I've made!

No idea really. 

5. Besides creating what else do you do? Do you have a full time job?
I'm freelancer marketing analyst and also an Irish dancer. 

6. When did you start thinking you were an artist?
I haven't started yet :-)

7. Who has been most influential in your craft work?
I can't say there was anybody in particular but all the Etsy crafters influenced a lot. 

8. Where would you like to be in five years?
Hmmm... I don't like to tell my plans :-)

9. Is there anything you'd like to try doing that you haven't done? crafts, sports, life in general?
Yes, I'd like to try making artist dolls and do paragliding. 

10. Besides online where else do you sell?
Online only - it's the most comfortable way for me and it lets me sell anywhere.
