a little something just for you {giveaway}

It has been a very, very long time since my last giveaway, and because I love my followers very, very much, I thought a giveaway was in order! :)

We have 4 fabulous prizes and 1 fabulous coupon code up for the grabs today,  so how about them prizes!?

1. 8x10 Print Of Your Choice From Keri Bevan Photography.

She has a huge variety of absolutely gorgeous photographs to choose from and I am insanely jealous of the winner! 

2. Set Of Four "Whimsical Owl Cards" With Envelopes From The Owl And The Envelope.

Are these not the most adorable cards you have ever seen!?

3. "When Pigs Can Fly" Brooch From MyPipSqueak.

One word; Adorable.

4. 8x10 Print Of Your Choice From Eeebee & Jack.

I would love to have one of these sweet prints on my wall!

Also, the wonderful Jo, owner of 42 things has offered my lovely readers a coupon code! To spice things up a bit, we also decided to do a little interview:

Tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a whacky 35 yo, wife and homeschooling mom of 2. I live in Alberta, Canada and although I love it, I'm starting to really dislike the long dark winters. Snow is wonderful... but comeon! 8 months of cold dark? Maybe I better move south.

When did you first open your shop, and why?

I opened my shop in Feb. 2010 (although I signed up sooner). It was during one of those long dark winters and I just needed something to do for me. Something that I could leave and pick up at any time. little did I know it would become an obsession. I was very sure it was going to fail right off the bat.

What is your favourite thing to make?

Pretty much everything. Some things I balk at a little bit because it's so time consuming, like the paper beads, so I only offer a few kinds of them for sale as a supply as I enjoy making them into bracelets so much more. I can't say for sure which is my favourite item to make. Bookmarks are fun... they turn out so cute.

In your opinion, has your shop been successful?

Yes, I think it has. Maybe not HUGELY successful, but besides time I haven't invested a lot into it monetarily so that is one of my goals this year. Invest more money into the business so I can invest less time :) as far as learning new things and becoming more confident in my abilities as a business owner? I've been hugely successful.
