BeeZee-Art
Brittany Zerkle
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Hello there, I’m Brittany Zerkle, the owner and creative force behind BeeZeeArt.

It has always been a dream of mine to support myself with my artistic abilities. I discovered Etsy. In it, I found the tools I needed to express my creativity and share my quirky creations with the world. Thus, BeeZeeArt was born. Since then it has grown by leaps and bounds and my work can be found in every state in the U.S. and over 31 countries worldwide.

These days my focus is primarily on designing and producing stuffed animals and their patterns. I draw inspiration from my love of animals, my own personal plush collection, and the knowledge that something as simple as a cat image on the internet can brighten someone’s day. I try to find that perfect balance in my work that is cute, yet quirky, and sometimes even a little creepy.
Interests

Any other Crafters have a Facebook Page

Just wondering if anyone else happens to have a facebook page just for their crafting. Bonus points if you make plushies or other textile art :)

On my own page ( www.facebook.com/beezeeart ) I follow quite a few people from Etsy, but I seem to get a lot of jewelry makers or other assorted things. I'd love to have more people to follow, I'm rather addicted to facebook.

So... if anyone does, let me know :) 

How do you prefer to buy pinback buttons?

Have you ever considered starting a youtube channel and making tutorials? Once you get enough subscribers, you could make some extra money that way as well simply by recording what you're making anyway.

I've considered it actually. I think a video tutorial would be much easier to understand than photos of steps.

But I don't have any video equipment, I often work at night when lighting is not so good, and my bird's cage is right next to my sewing desk and he's always banging around or yelling. One time he hung upside down from a bell and swang while screaming into it... for two hours straight...

On top of the time commitment to get things started, it's not something I want to tackle quite yet.

If you think about it, the cost of equipment is just an investment which will hopefully be returned to you once you start making money off it. As far as the birds go, you can just mute the recording in post production and dub over it with your commentary. Or you could just use text explanations and play music over top of the video, but I prefer hearing verbal explanations myself. : ) That's hilarious about the bird though. Anyway, if you ever do decide to "tackle" Youtube, hit me up. I'll be your first subscriber (and I'll share the crap outta your work)! : )))

Do you do commissions/plush trades? I feel stupid, but I can find any commission information. XP
