Local Featured Seller: Darling and Dear

 Who are you?  Darling & Dear

Where are you located?  Raleigh, NC

What do you create? Hand carved stamps and handmade cards

What is your favorite place to visit in the "triangle"? Downtown Raleigh -- there is a lot of character and growth downtown, and our cards are in three retail locations there at the moment.
Flower Card
 When did you start creating? 2010

What is your most cherished handmade item? Our first set of Christmas cards with bow ties on them.

Why did you choose your medium?  Hand carving stamps was a hobby of Kim's, she can create anything from a blank rubber pad. And, writing is important to Jen -- it's her career and she used to doodle in class to help her think and learn.
Mother's Day Cards
 What inspires you? All of Etsy inspires us! But, more locally, The Handmaidens and The Makery are our current inspirations for their strong, handmade will and crafts.

Where do you create? At Kim's workshop at her house in Raleigh.

Why did you choose your shop/company name? It's dreamy, it's sweet, and it embodies two characters, like us. We are sisters so that means a lot to us.

What are your goals? We hope to continue to create more designs, some focused on the Triangle (like Oak leaves and Bicycles) and others on things that make people happy, like celebrating Mother's Day with a intricate butterfly design.
Pinata Card
What do you do when you are not creating? We garden, do yoga, take walks, and take trips with our friends.

After you've found Darling & Dear on etsy,  don't forget to swing by their website, facebook page, and twitter feed!
