justlikerebekah - FS for the week!


Here's a little bit about justlikerebekah and her shop! Get to know her then go see her shop!

The Basics!
Name: Rebekah Diaddigo
Location: North of Atlanta, GA
Etsy shop: (link)

The Nitty Gritty:
-Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well, I’m home-educated and I’m finishing my junior year. I love ballet and I hope to glorify God in all that I do

-Can you tell us the meaning behind your Etsy shop name?
My mom actually thought of the name. It basically means that I won’t sell anything that I wouldn’t have myself.

-When did you join Etsy?
May of 2008

-What kinds of things are available for purchase in your shop?
Mostly accessories such as keychains, pins and stuff. All of it is personalizable and I hope to add more in the future such as hats and belts

-What is your favorite item from your shop?
Probably the pink and green J pin because I love those colors

-Where do you get your ideas and/or inspiration?
Other people, colorful fabrics, and anything unique

-What advice do you have for other Etsy sellers, especially those just starting out? I think photos are the biggest part (I’m planning on redoing mine when school gets out). They give your shop the ambiance. I would recommend thinking about how you want to be seen and take your photos to show your shop’s personality. Also make sure your avatar is interesting and matches your shop.

-What do you do to promote your shop? Do you blog? Twitter? Facebook? Myspace?
I don’t do that much to promote but I hope to do more in the future. I do have a blog ( and a flickr but I’m not sure how much good they do. I think most people find me through the forums and word of mouth.

-Why did you decide to join Minor Effect?
I had been thinking for a while that it would be cool to have a team of teens and when I found Minor Effect, I was pretty excited.

Fun Stuff:
What is your favorite:

-color? Hot Pink
-movie? Nancy Drew (the new version)
-type of music? Hmm, I like Classical (especially music from ballets), I also like hip-hop (like tobymac), I pretty much like everything but country and screamo.

-What item is on your Etsy wishlist?
A lot, too many things to list. I would really like some fun and unique earrings though.

-What do you do for fun?
Read, spend time with my family, ballet, make things

-Tell us a little bit about your family.
I have a Dad, Dan and Mom, Kelle. I also have 3 younger brothers: Caleb (15), Joshua (14), and Jonathan (11).

Random thoughts:

-Who is the one person you go to for everything (and what is your relationship ot them ie; mom, friends etc.)?
I know this is two people but I go to both of my parents.

-What do you hope to do when you grow a bit older?
I hope to be a professional ballet dancer as well as a wife and mom.

New members?!?!

We want to thank all our viewers for coming here to check up on us!
We have gone threw EVERY member and everyone has been featured. We can soon start the cycle and refeature everyone again but for now we will not be having weekly features. Sorry guys but it will start back in just a couple weeks. It will be easier during summertime.

I will "interview" (i guess you could say), a couple more people to become members and set up a couple of co-mods!

Then we will focus on chatting again and getting this group orginaized! Then maybe some group sales and such! So bear with me for a bit and I will let you all know whenever we get this group picking up!

Just comment if you have questions or want to join, for the people who are not on etsy. This will be our way of communication, comments. Then I will give you an email address to send emails to. Other wise etsians, contact me at!
