Itz Fitz Review and Giveaway ends11/04

If you are into Personalized Handpainted Keepsakes then Jen at Itz Fitz is your gal, She makes the sweetest little keepsakes for decorating rooms,doors. Her little piggy banks are adorable and the handpainted personalized tiles she has would make a great gift or decoration.

The Spell It Out Wooden Letter Displays rock at Itz Fitz. She was so sweet and made me a custom one to match my sons room and name. It arrived really quick and is custom and personalized.

She took some ideas and made him a beautiful custom gift he can keep forever. It matched great and he loves it, for a little guy anyway!
I even had company over that complimented how cute and unique it was. This is a great product that is totally personalized and unique, well packaged and great dealing with Jen. My family and I thank her so much for the Spell It Out Display

She is going to give one of my readers a chance to win a custom personalized tile.(up to 14.99 in value)
Read about Jen and Itz Fitz

Tell us about you .What do you create?
I handpaint personalized designs on ceramic tiles and wooden pieces along with your childs name, birth date and time.. any info you'd like to include on the piece! The items are customized to coordinate with the room they will be displayed in, so colors and style of writing are all custom! You can spell out a name on multiple tiles, or have all the info on one piece - it's all up to you! The pieces hang with a ribbon on your wall and compliment any room design you may have!
I am also getting into wooden letters, right now I have awesome dresser top pieces that can spell out anything you'd like! Each letter is painted and covered with a pattern different from the next, but they all come together to make a really fun piece to display in any room! Its not just for kids! Great for your shops name, display in an office, a fun way to welcome people in!
Soon I will have large individual letters to offer, of course custom painted and designed!
And I'm always open to suggestions! 
How long have you been doing this? How did you get started?
I have always been painting on things..! From when I was a young girl, I have always been into an art form of some sort. For these particular items, I had painted my nieces' name, one letter to a tile! with&nb sp;each letter sprinkled with flowers, attached a ribbon to hang and mailed it away to her for her 1st birthday! When my sister received it, she insisted I hadn't done them (thanks!) and when I finally convinced her I hadn't bought them anywhere, she told me about the Etsy site and suggested I look into it. I did, and here I am!
Do you do this fulltime? If not! , what  else do you do for a living?
I, for the most part, am always designing or painting something.. so by default I probably do do this fulltime!
I have a 8+ year background in graphic design, however I was let go (like many others..!) several months ago. Since then I have been managing my skin care analysis business, which I also do out of my home.
Who are your inspirations or influences?
I love all things, inspired by just about everything I see.. but I guess my real main reason for this particular project is that I grew up with similar things on my wall. I remember loving to read over and over the time I was born and seeing my name. I guess as! you' ;re growing up, you're curious and love discovering, and I loved knowing exactly when I arrived! And of course, everyone loves to have their name s on things, the toothbrushes with names lasered on the handles prove that! I think also having such a common name, it was hard to find much in stock that had my name, so pieces like these were even better cause I knew they were made just for me!

What is your favorite creation from your shop? Why?
Thats a hard one! I love the 'Spell It Out' piece, because its 3-D and stylized, and fun!
I have a wooden train now that I think is adorable! Each train car is a letter, too cute!
But I really love each one, each design.. I love the litle girls holding the flower or a heart, I love the baby bee nestled in the leaf sleeping.. I could go on forever, I do love them all!

Do you have any advice for other artists?
I'm beginning to realized its all in the advertising, getting your name out there. And it can be hard!
But no matter what, stick true to what you love and be proud and get the word out there!

Where else can we find you  ?
You can find me at www.ItzFitz.etsy.com - In the future I may develop a website but for now thats my home!
