You're officially on the list! Congrats!
I figure now is as good a time as any to introduce myself! I'm Lizzy Dabczynski-Bean, the creator of Stitch People! My husband, Spencer, and I met in 2004 doing a community theater production of 'A Christmas Carol', tied the knot in 2010, and have been inseparable ever since. We both graduated from BYU--I majored in Media Music and minored in Business, and Spencer got his Masters in Information Systems. I play trombone, like to do community theater, and love dogs (we have three rescue dogs)!
I made my first cross stitch portrait as a Christmas present for my parents in 2011. Spencer thought they were fun and creative and suggested I sell them. So I created an Etsy shop and started taking orders! As the Pinterest crowd picked up on the idea, I decided to write a book for people who wanted to make portraits themselves! After refining my patterns for over 3 years, I put all that information into the DIY Stitch People book and started selling it here on my website!
If you haven't seen it yet, use the button below to check out the DIY Stitch People book! Over 100 people have given it a 5-star review, and the book is flying off our shelves here in Utah. Get your copy today!
And again - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Can't wait to get to know you better.
