Sponsor GIveaway: The Lovely Poppy, $20 Gift Certificate


Hello cuteness!  I am just loving the accessories that sweet Nicole of the lovely poppy is creating.  So many great colors, textures, and combinations of  media.  She's got jewelry, hair clips, camera straps, even dog collars!  This girl can do it all! 

Meet Nicole:
Q: What is your earliest memory of crafting?
A: My earliest memory of crafting is making a "learning bear" in my middle school family and consumer education class. Learning bears were mandatory projects for all middle school students to complete. They were made out of felt and the legs and arms were detachable (gotta practice the buttons, right?). My dear mother was my teacher and I wanted to make sure mine was the best in the class. After a good fifteen tries, my pink and yellow learning bear was assembled- full with buttons and button holes. To be honest, I don't really like sewing projects and can't handle anything that takes more than and hour and a half. That's why I've decided to stick to jewelry, camera slipcovers, and dog collars.

Q: What are your muses?
A: I'm inspired and encouraged by the other bloggers. if I'm contemplating a new product release or wondering what to blog about next, I turn to my new blogging friends. It's great to the support of other crafty ladies who have the same goals and visions as myself. Pinterest has also been a HUGE inspiration and a great place for ideas. Pinterest also has become a serious addiction of mine. In fact, since writing this I've jumped back to it three times.

Q: What do you love most about blogging?
A: Although I'm new to blogging and am constantly trying to find my niche, blogging has been a creative outlet. I love, love, love reading about other blogger's inspirations and their stories.

Q Favorite musical artist or type of music?
A: I pinky swear I didn't pick these two because they both live in Nashville, but my two favorites are Matt Wertz and Ben Rector. One of the (many) reasons why I love them is because they are unique and are still fairly unknown, which means it's easy to get tickets to see them live. They also are two of the most down to earth artists that I've ever known (you're right, I don't really KNOW them).

Q: If you could see your accessories on any two celebrities, who would you pick?
A: Hmmm, I'd be just as happy seeing any of my accessories on "one of us" as I would be a celebrity.

  2. Do I really have to pick just one thing? Impossible, my friend. Because I can't just pick one, I've picked a package (sneaky, hm?).

    It includes the AMAZING Francesca Necklace and her adorable mum ring! Love love love love LOVE.

    I've been looking for the perfect wedding necklace, and I think I've found that in Francesca!
