Sponsor Giveaway: My Little Sunshine, $20 Gift Certificate



I mean, ... can I just say that I have the best sponsors? I mean seriously -- I look over at my side column and am just blown away by the creativity, talent, and skill!  Ashley of My Little Sunshine Handmade is no exception.  I SO wish I could put together bags and accessories the way this girl can.  Not to mention her super cute blog.  She is, in a word, adorable!  And generous too! -- we're pairing together to offer one Wild & Precious reader a $20 gift certificate to her shop!  But first, if you haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting this creative gal, here's a little get-to-know-you Q&A:

Q: Tell me about why and when you decided to start an etsy shop?
A: About 2 years ago my husband bought me a sewing machine & said "make beautiful things". He invested in a few sewing lessons for me & even opened up my first etsy shop for me. What a keeper, right?? I guess he really believed in me, even when I didn't! As I started to sew, I realized how much I loved creating things & was so surprised each time someone told me, "I would totally buy that!" Slowly I built up the courage to open up shop & actually use the account that my husband had made for me! It has taken me a while to find my identity in the etsy world, but I am so thankful I didn't give up- now I truly feel at home in my little etsy storefront :)

Q: What inspires you?
A: Coffee. I may be an addict, I definitely need it to get my brain juices flowing every morning! No my inspiration really comes from the beautiful creations I find in nature, spending time with family, and browsing my favorite shops (anthro, j.crew, fossil, UO, just to name a few...) Good thing I live in the country, or else this etsy shop might not have any moolah to run on!




Q: Any new art/crafts you want to learn?
A: I am in the process of learning graphic design and am SO pumped! I am constantly amazed at technology & find that as a small business owner, it is SO important for me to keep up with it all, at least as much as I can. I am definitely not the first to jump on the technology train, yeesh, I still have a flip phone (I know, so lame.) but I am trying my best to be a constant student, to learn & try new forms of art...I never want to become a person who just doesn't want to learn something new.

Q: Favorite thing about blogging?
A: I think my favorite thing about blogging is the brainstorming that comes before the post. A lot of times, it makes me go through my week or my day & think about things that I am thankful for, fun things that have happened, or interesting items that I want to share. So many times they are precious moments, small details or fun accomplishments that if not for blogging, I would probably just sweep aside & forget about or treat as insignificant, when every breath is so precious.




Q: If you could have any celebrity show of one of your designs, who would you pick?
A: I am a closet disney lover (ok, not so secret anymore!). Yes, I'm 25 & still watch kids shows. What can I say, I am addicted to the cheese-ball, tween dramas...admitting is the first step to recovery, right? So with that said, if Selena Gomez ever carried one of my wristlets or bags, I think I might die.


Q: Favorite candy, drink, and breakfast food?
A: So, I'm kind of a health nut & actually don't eat candy *gasp*, I know...more proof that I am a total weirdo. I do like chocolate covered coffee beans though, so if that counts as a candy, then we have a winner! Favorite drink? an Iced Americano, slightly sweetened with a little bit of cream...delicious. And to break the coffee theme, my favorite breakfast food is egg & avocado tacos on corn tortillas. Don't knock it before you try it. They are SO yummy.
