I had a chance to catch up with Anitra, the owner/artist behind Green With Envy Studios and learn more about her and her shop…
Please tell me about yourself.

I am a mommy and wife and a social worker during the day (and sometimes at night depending on what case explodes after hours). I’m obsessed with real crime shows (except cops) and Golden Girls has been my favorite show since I was a kid (I watch it so much that my 15 month old stops what she is doing to dance to the theme song every time…even mid-sleep). Pre-baby I was a avid runner and I ran two marathons, now I settle for chasing my munchkin around the house. I have a big mouth and can’t keep a secret. I have big dreams of someday being the wife/mother that is so organized her whole house is full of labeled boxes and perfectly color coordinated calendars (a color for each family member), she loses things are has a messy house and she is able to it all with time to spare. But alas I settle for the funny chaos that is my life.

Please tell me about your business.

I decided to open my shop in Jan 2009, while I was on maternity leave after having my daughter. She changed my view on things and I realized that I really wanted to put energy into doing something that made me happy (social work is my passion but the politics and sadness of it all is hard to take without a counter balance). I have always loved paper and color but until I found Etsy I never thought I could create my own paper products (wish I would have when I was trying to find just the right wedding invites, but I settled). I got super excited about the possibilities. I have always been a crafty person and the idea of making products exactly like someone wants makes me happy. I named the shop Green With Envy Studios because I have an obsession with the color green, so it only seemed fitting. My shop offers colorful and fun paper goods (note cards, bookplates, art prints and invites). All the items can be personalized and/or customized. I opened my shop in November 2009 after a very long road to get there…no turning back now.

What inspires you?

I know it’s goofy and predictable but my daughter inspires me. She makes me want to be the happiest, most successful person for her. She helps me focus whats important like no other person.
Green With Envy Studios is giving away one item of the winner’s choice from her shop.
