Happy Easter Giveaway #1 - NewCreatioNZ (closed)

Our first Easter Giveaway is from NewCreatioNZ ( It is a store filled with beautiful art, photograps and paper arts! What I like a lot about her store is her cards, magnets and other products made with her own photographs. You can also bring the amazing sceneris from New Zealand into your own home with many of her items!

Here is more about Jocelyn and her wonderful works of art!

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?

I have been and Etsymom for about a year now. My store is called NewCreatioNZ.

Tell us more about your store items and why you love making them?

I am passionate about painting and photography but delve into all sorts of other crafts too - I'm willing to give anything a go!

My shop is based around visual art, both painting and photography. I love what we have been given to enjoy visually in our world and to capture it on camera, or portray an idea of it on canvas is very exciting for me!

What is one thing you want everyone to know about you?

My name is Jocelyn. I am originally from Cape Town, South Africa but moved to New Zealand 13 years ago. I live in a little beach town near Auckland with my husband, our son of 18 years and two daughters, 16 and 10. Living in New Zealand Inspires me to create! Just looking around at the amazing scenery fills me with all sorts of creative ideas. Of course, the ultimate Creator of it all is the one I give credit and thanks to. I am often stunned at HIS creativity!

What’s your favorite thing to do during Easter?

Easter is a very special and relective time for me. I go to church, but cannot avoid the fact that it gives me a wonderful excuse to eat chocolate!

How much Easter chocolate/candy bunny or eggs will you let your kid(s) eat?

Birthdays and Easter are the two days my children are allowed to go CRAZY on chocolate! They are rationed every other day so make the most of it!
