CraftSanity Episode 75: Artist Emily Martin gives us a tour “Inside a Black Apple”

by jennifer


This week you’re going to hear the voice of Emily Martin, the 25-year-old Georgia artist and craft powerhouse who sells her prints, paper goods, dolls and other craft wares over at The Black Apple.

On this episode of CraftSanity, Emily talks candidly about the ups and downs of running a successful online craft business and false assumptions some have made given her “top seller” status over at Etsy.

Tune in for the story of how she built one of the most popular art shops on the web in about three years, and maybe even pick up a few tips on how you can make your own crafty dreams come true.

Still want more? Check out Emily’s “Inside a Black Apple” blog and read her “Some Girls Wander By Mistake” fashion blog.

It was cool of Emily to give this design away for free, so enjoy making dolls for personal use or gifts. But don’t be poser and whip up and extra 10 for your etsy show because it’s just not cool to profit off of her design. Thanks for the free pattern, Emily. You rock!


And because Emily apparently can’t stop giving, be sure to download the pdf of these rad bookplates and paste them into all your favorite craft books. Enjoy, folks. (Thanks again, Emily.)
