Danielle Maveal is the founder of Creative Little Beasts, and was previously Etsy.com’s Education Lead and employee number #15 (they have over 300 employees now!). She was key to creating a community and to educating crafters on how to run their Etsy shop like a legit business. She pretty much puts the “Capital L” in the word LEGIT. She is committed to helping crafters make a living making things! She has a newsletter, a tumblr, and a podcast, and you might wanna sign up for her mailing list. Before working at Etsy, she ran her own craft business (as a metalsmith) full time and had her work represented in over 40 galleries worldwide. In her spare time she helps dogs find homes and volunteers to walk dogs at the local shelter.
And, yes, I am SHOUTING! Sorry for using all caps, but Danielle is looking for her cute 6 lb. black chihuahua, Myrtle, pictured below. She was lost last week in Brooklyn while Danielle was away. Here is the Facebook page where you can learn more about how to help Danielle.
