I am the creator of Tye Dye Bills, my name is Amanda Johnson

I make most of the tie dyes, tapestries and bed sheet sets (nature inspired are my favorite) and do the portrait drawings, as well as hand make the other grateful gear.

My team consists of myself and my husband who occasionally makes tie dyes (he has a very groovy style), rinses my bins and is sole owner and namesake of our shop name (tye dye bill was a name given to him during his on the road days), and my children who are the reason I create and sell on Etsy.

Tie dye is our passion.  Our Creations are brought to life through parenthood, love of all things tie dye and the Grateful Family we have come to know and love after all these years.  We love sharing our art, love and soul with others.

Hi! My name is Julie Tribble, and my shop is called Stella Blue Handmade.  I am currently living in Catonsville, MD, a historic little town just outside of Baltimore.  I love to create a lot of different things, but right now my shop mostly contains handmade beaded jewelry and crochet accessories.  It started with making jewelry for fun and for myself because I could never find anything that was exactly what I wanted, and eventually I had amassed a big enough collection that I knew I could never wear them all!  When I started selling my creations, it was so exciting to find that other people loved what I was doing too.  I would say my purpose for Stella Blue is to create unique wearable pieces of art that reflect my love of nature, music, color, and the earth.

As long as I can remember art and music has been my thing, and being an artist has always been my goal. Always drawing, always dreaming, always listening to music and playing numerous instruments.
