I'm really excited about this giveaway! I love small business and I love handmade. I'd like you to meet the crafter behind one of my favorite Esty shops and join in our fun with this one of a kind giveaway.
Hi! My name is April, and I’m the late night seamstress behind the Marine Parents shop. The shop is an eclectic mix of projects that are constantly spinning about in my mind. Each product is something I would use in my own life, and every fabric is personally drooled over by me, figuratively speaking!! I just can’t help but spend gobs of hours pouring over gorgeous designer fabrics!!
Over the last year or so, the shop has been opened, closed, on vacation several times and has seen a big change in products featured. Up until about six months ago, my husband was the only one in the family who knew how to sew. Now I have completely taken over the shop, given it a major design overhaul and am cranking out as many products as I can every night after our daughter goes to bed. I’m usually up until the very early morning hours sewing and creating, but I wouldn't change a single thing.
Having the shop has been a major blessing -- not only has it allowed me to bring fresh income into our home by doing something I love, but it has also connected me with so many other friendly handcrafters! Many of my new friends are part of this awesome handcrafting community, and they are some of the sweetest and most sincere people I have ever met. I hope that God will continue to bless me and this little piece of creativeness in the world for awhile more -- it’s such a fun and exciting adventure!
So let's have some fun. The giveaway will be open from June 1st -30th, and the prize is my treat. This is just for fun, but please be honest with your entries -- I will be checking!
I will choose the winner June 30th at 8:59 pm PST. The winner will be notified via Google Friend Connect, and he or she will have 48 hours to let me know where to send their prize. (FYI, I use random.org to choose the winner.) If I hit 200 followers on GFC, I will add a second winner.
