branch out

October 20, 2011

Several years ago, Liz Stiglets quit her nursing job and turned a passion for arts and crafts into a full-time business. The benefits have been priceless.

Stiglets’ work allows her to spend more time with her two young children and musician hubby at their cozy blue house in Asheville, NC.

The self-taught crafter makes frame-ready prints, pillows and embroidery patterns, which she sells in her etsy store (cozyblue.etsy.com).

A true family business, Stiglets and her husband handle the screen printing, stitching and sewing in their home studio.

One of Cozy Blue’s best sellers is a custom “family tree” print, a modern version of the classic.

The tree stump image is hand screened – from Stiglets’ original line drawing — onto heavyweight watercolor paper. The leaves are hand-carved rubber stamps. Leaves and names are hand stamped and personalized with first names or initials. An 11-inch-by-14-inch print is $30.
