Sponsor Spotlight: Angela of The Pink 'Dillo

My name is Angela, and I'm the owner of The Pink 'Dillo. I live in Austin, Texas with my boyfriend and our little chihuahua, Scar. I've worked for a property management company the last eight years and currently manage a small staff in our corporate office.  Most of my nights and weekends are spent working on my Etsy shop, but when I can tear myself away from crafting or other Etsy-related activities I also enjoy cooking and baking (and eating!), reading, doing Yoga and, when I get the chance to, traveling!  

My obsession with paper began in college when I started scrapbooking, but I've always had the crafty "bug" growing up. As soon as I discovered Etsy a couple of years ago, I was hooked, both as a seller and a buyer. I love being a part of the hand-made community, and knowing that I'm buying something unique and fabulous while also supporting other small businesses and artisans.  I've especially become addicted to handmade soaps and bath products - much like my paper obession, I just can't stop buying more!  

The Pink 'Dillo offers a variety of paper goods including gift and favor tags, confetti, embellishments, stickers, and cards, as well as magnets and my newest item - hand-stamped glassine bags.  I love using pretty papers, fun patterns, and bright colors in my items, but also love simple, elegant, and rustic touches as well. I find inspiration everywhere and always seem to have at least 5 or 6 projects going on at one time. I've had several new ideas and product lines in the works for a while now, and my goal for 2012 is to hopefully release at least 3 or 4 of them in my shop....we'll see what the rest of the year brings!
