Etsy Shop: Turn Me On Art Review & Giveaway

I've seen a few switch plate covers over the years. I always thought it was a great idea! I always wanted one, but never really saw any that I liked enough. Then I ran across the Etsy shop, Turn Me On Art. I started looking through the selection and fell in love with the wonderful work! I then contacted the shop owner, Nancy, to see if she would like to work with me. Lucky for us, she agreed, and I am beyond thrilled to share her work with you!

These switch plates are fantastic! Nancy offers single, double, and triple switch plates! There is something for everyone, and every room! All the work is her own, and I have to say, she is very talented! My favorite are her Alice in Wonderland switch plates! Too cute! Another great thing about her shop is that if you buy a switch plate, get it, put it up, and it does't fit or you don't like it, she will gladly refund you money! Now that's good customer service! There have been plenty of times I have gotten something home and didn't like it. I eiher don't want to go through the hassel of trying to return it, or they wont take it back. From me being in contact with Nancy, I can tell you that she is very easy to get a hold of. She is such a sweetheart, and I'd recommend her, and her work, to ANYBODY!


ME: Where are you from and a little about yourself?

Nancy: My father spent 32 years in the Air Force which means I'm from every where. However, most of the time was spent overseas. My father requested to be stationed in the Far East because of my mother heritage (she was born and raised in Japan). We lived in Okinawa from 1964-1976 and then from 1976-1985 was spent in Japan. You'll notice that a lot of my switch plate designs have an Asian influence.

Gotta love those that support our military! :)


ME: When did you start making the items in your shop?

Nancy: I started making my plates a couple of years ago but was very nervous and insecure about selling them to the public. And it was only recent that I started selling them to the public. A dear friend suggested Etsy as an easy way of selling my switch plate cover's . Next thing I knew, I was setting up shop on Etsy and very surprised at how many people were interested in my plates. Since I've built a lot of confidence in my work and self.

I believe it, they are amazing!


ME: How did you decide the name for your shop?

Nancy: My husband came up with my shop name.

A supportive husband! Can't beat that!





ME: What is your favorite thing about owning your shop and being a seller?

Nancy: Having a shop on Etsy is sooooo convenient but I really, really love being able to wake up when I want to. By nature I am more nocturnal so I do work into the wee hours of the night.








ME: What inspires you to create such beautiful pieces?

Nancy: My life experiences inspire a lot of my pieces.






ME: What is your favorite item in your shop and why?

Nancy: My favorite item would be....Alice in Wonderland. Very nostalgic

Hey! Those are my favorite too!







ME: Is there anything new you plan to add to your shop?

Nancy: Eventually, I hope to add some of my oil painting into my shop...

Ooooh, I bet those will be nice too!





ME: Anything else you would like to let us know?

Nancy: that's it :o)

Hehe, ok! :)








ME: Are there any other places on the net that we can find you?

Nancy: You can find me on Etsy or Twitter. My shop name is TurnMeOnArt! Thank YOU!
