European Street Team

I am a member of the European Street Team on etsy, one of the best teams there, with the most talented artists all around Europe. They are not only very talented people, but every one of them is a great person, and I am honored to know them and to have the opportunity to chitchat with them about almost everything :) I will try to introduce a few great members of this amazing team. Because the team is quite large, I will focus on the artist I have online contact almost every day.
