I am happy to announce the winner of the LIZ EATON JEWELRY giveaway!
Congrats! You are so lucky… email me your contact information and I will make sure that Liz gets in touch with you! I do have a link to Liz’s Etsy shop here on the side of my blog… would make some awesome Mother’s day gifts! So think about ordering SOON so you have time to get something just right!
I have become acquainted with her through emails, and she is just the sweetest thing! I am amazed with what she sees in her head, and can create… I was asking her how she learned how to sew these amazing bags… (ok, so I can’t wrap my head around sewing something like this) here is what she said:
“While attending BYU-Idaho, majoring in English, I signed up for Sewing 101. I loved every stressful minute of it. My teacher was so hard on me…one time she took my sewn fabric from me and tore it up. She told me to start over and to stop trying to take the easy way out. So I did. In that short semester, I learned more that I had learned in all four years combined”
I also thought this was cute:
“I have two favorite sounds in the whole world. The first is the sound of my diet coke can opening and the second is the sound of my blade cutting into brand new, crisp, fabric. This routine begins every night at 7pm when I put my kids to bed and I love every second of it!”
She just makes up the patterns for these! They are her own designs… super cute.
I love this funky bag! So fuN! If you would like to WIN this cute thing… leave a comment about what is ESSENTIAL in your bag… and I will be picking a winner Friday morning…
I will kick off by answering my own question….in addition to the obvious ($$$ and cell phone) I am all about snacks (mostly candy) and a little camera.
