Bearfoot Rabbit Creations
Amanda Perrin of Bearfoot Rabbit Creations
Hi! My name is Amanda Perrin, and I am the artist at play here at Bearfoot Rabbit Creations. I am originally from Woodhaven, Michigan, but for the past 9 years I have had the privilege to travel the country full time.
My business was founded on an intense love of stones, metal and history. The first steps were taken on a very small scale on October 31, 2012. I have over 8 years’ experience working professionally with semi-precious and precious gemstones. I also have over 12 years of working knowledge with various metals and wire. I have sold my jewelry domestically and in several countries around the world. I also attend various art venues and conventions throughout the Continental United States.
Online you can find my jewelry at: http://bearfootrabbit.myshopify.com
Bearfoot Rabbit Creations is a collection of gemstone and wire jewelry. I work personally with a lapidary to select the best quality materials and have them cut specifically for me and my jewelry. All of my work is very intentionally personal, right down to the mining of the materials, which I am sometimes lucky enough to do myself.
I have a passion for history and tradition while also seeking out the obscure. Much of my jewelry is inspired by museum finds from Rome, Ireland and Scotland. I love to study the theology of minerals throughout time and history. I find 1,000 year old jewelry unbelievably captivating, and I try to emulate that same allure in my art.

Jennifer Loftfield of Caffeinated Papercuts
Hey there, I’m Jen, head paper cutter and coffee drinker of Caffeinated Papercuts. I’m a mom, wife, crafter, gamer, bookworm and coffee addict who loves creating with paper while ignoring the growing laundry piles.
I opened my first shop in August 2010 while I was 8 months pregnant, stuck in the house as it was 95 degrees in the shade, and BORED. Boredom is a dangerous thing, as it leads to crazy ideas and playing with scissors…which, in this case, worked out quite well for me.
I produce and sell anything made with pretty paper as I really cannot get enough of it. Those things include wedding invitations, greeting cards, coasters, ornaments, scrapbook kits, note pads, and whatever paper craft my overactive imagination thinks of next!
Okay, now onto the fun stuff. Get comfy and top off your coffee. Ready?
Online we’re at www.CaffeinatedPapercuts.com where you’ll find the blog and links to our Etsy shop and new Storenvy shop. You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest (yup, totally addicted) and Instagram.
Offline you’ll find me bopping along to my iPod in my craft room making pretty things with paper and glitter while drinking coffee. You can come visit me at local craft shows throughout the year, just check the blog for where we’re going to be next. If I’m not in the craft room, you’ll find me building railroad tracks and being eaten by a lion. You laugh, and yet it happens every day in my house!
Fun fact: My husband is afraid of glitter, so he doesn’t help much. He heads outside and trains birds instead. Don’t worry, he’s a licensed falconer; he knows what he’s doing!

Danny and Claudia (and Tiger) of FlyingFrenzy-winkel
We are Danny and Claudia, cat-lovers and owners of FlyingFrenzy-winkel, a successful online shop selling cat toy wands and refills. We know what you’re wondering, and the answer is that the word ‘Winkel’ is a Dutch word for ‘shop’ or ‘store’.
We started selling very recently, covering the local Belgian market. But we soon had to ship also to The Netherlands and France as the Flying Frenzy Cat Toy sales started to ramp up there as well. In our first month, we processed 2 to 3 orders a day, which was above our expectations. Since than we see the business growing month after month.
Our partnership with feline behavior specialist Anneleen Bru gave us the opportunity not only to learn more about cats, but also about their hunting instinct. That’s how we became a specialized shop providing additional services and exact product information to our customers.
As two cat-lovers, we soon found out that our own cats loved the Flying Frenzy cat toys. The benefits of this toy, besides the obvious entertainment value, are a happier and healthier cat. Many cats can become quite lazy, especially indoor cats, and feline obesity and poor health due to lack of exercise are very common problems, but now you can help your cats improve their health while you enjoy the acrobatic show they perform. Even for cats with a bit of a weight problem the Frenzy cat toys are an excellent way to encourage them to exercise and lose the extra pounds. Of course, you will also extend their lifespan by getting them back to peak fitness.
Our aim was to sell a high-quality product at an affordable price, and one which is produced ethically without causing suffering or cruelty to any animals. Other cat toys are mass-produced in the East, with only final assembly done in the domestic country. Almost the entire range of our products is made by hand in the UK using the best quality components. All components used are selected from sources which permit the most natural environment for the donor animals, and all animal products used, such as feathers, fur, etc, are by-products from the human food industry.
Currently, we’re only available online in the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands & Luxembourg). There are no plans to combine it with a brick-and-mortar store for the moment. Our website is www.flyingfrenzy-winkel.be.
FlyingFrenzy-winkel is founded from passion. While enthusiasm is a great place to start, however, it’s not enough to sustain a business for long term. So, don’t count on passion alone. You have to make sure that you have the right tools in place to serve your potential customers. Shopseen is providing a perfect range of those tools, which we picked almost from day one because we wanted to share our passion and our products in the best possible way.
