Meet Barbara

Barbara from byvala is sponsoring our Sneak Attack today at 3pm.

One of our international members, Barbara tries to find her victims from all over the world - that way, other international members can see all the talent that the Etsy world has to offer!

I asked Barbara how she came up with her Etsy shop name:

My Etsy name is strategic. It is a trend to name your company starting with the word 'by' as it makes it more personal. I really like the name Vala, And Vala is a word that people search in Google, but what has very few hits. So I figured, a blind spot on Google, let's take it. Some strategy eh?

Barbara has been creating these adorable tote bags  - this listing for a surprise tote bag - with a fabric choice that Barbara will make - if you can't decide (like me) what fabric you would like.

Be sure to take a look at all the creations from Barabara's shop - there is something for everyone.

And come join us in our Sneak Attack thread as we get ready to surprise some unsuspecting new Etsy shops!
