Meet: Blondie3022

This week, we'll meet Sondra, a photographer who sees letters all around her. Read on to learn more.

Name: Sondra Goebel Stout

Shop name: Blondie3022

What's your real-world job? I'm a chef by trade, but now I take photos. It may sound strange, but cooking is creative, too.

How did you get started with your craft? I was lead down the path of taking photos by my mother. She purchased some letter art from a show for my kids. I got the letter art home, put them on the wall and they fell apart. I said, "I can do this." After a lot of photos, I got it down.

Where do the photos of all your letters come from? I like to take photos of letters once a week. The photos we have now are photos taken from Indiana to Florida. I'm getting ready to go to St.Louis for a couple of days to take more photos.

How much time do you put into your craft? I am now doing this full time, and my partner is opening a craft house and putting together a catalog for home parties.

How did you hear about Etsy? I was told about Etsy from a fellow Etisian, at paisleymoon. I have been hooked since.

Tell me about your favorite items for sale online.
  • Eat -- Let's face it: Everyone loves to eat, and finding cool stuff to put on your walls in the kitchen is sometimes difficult. This goes with all kitchen decor. (image at top of post)
  • Live, Laugh Love -- I love to see groupings on walls. It makes a room look well put-together. (middle image)
  • Colts -- Need I say more? It makes a great gift for men or a sports lover, and if you live in Indiana, you likely love the Colts. (at right and below)
Where else can we find you online? You can find me on Facebook at "Sondra Stout," and I post my new listings there. I also have a Web site, Letters from Home, that's getting ready for some good changes.
