In her own words:
“I’m enjoying a happy and productive retirement in the Ottawa Valley (that’s in eastern Ontario, Canada) I have worked mainly as a retail decorator, but also spent time in radio as a writer, and in publishing as an editorial assistant.
A few years ago I heard about “Little Dresses for Africa” and started working alongside a Canadian group sending dresses overseas. And so began a journey into dress design and pattern-making. Visiting the fabric store on a regular basis lead to the inspiration to begin sewing art quilts as well. I enjoy writing and painting, and have recently begun writing and illustrating children’s storybooks.
So my Etsy shop, Linda Voth, truly reflects what I love. I’m inspired by nature, children, and the world of imagination. Half of all sales from my shop go to global missions. That is my purpose and goal.
I found out about Polyvore through the [etsy] Flashmob team when Treasuries were coming to an end. It’s a fabulous way to recharge and get inspired. I like to see sets that stand out, depict beauty, and have a positive message.
I have a passion for fine photography, so that is often the starting point for my sets. In my view, sets don’t have to be crowded with a lot of images to be good.
There are so many styles in fashion, décor and art that I like – I’m likely to pick and choose a variety, but simplicity is probably the common denominator. The only things that I have collected over the years are Christmas Nutcrackers.
I’m very grateful to see friends from Etsy keeping old and making new connections on Polyvore. 😀 ” — @lvoth
