Little Pink Plum Give Away

Another Great Give Away!!
For the next two weeks enter to win this wonderful Gift Set from Janet at Little Pink Plum.

1. How did you decide on your shop name?
My shop name is a combination of two of my favorite colors - pink and plum. The "little" part of the shop name comes from me being not quite five feet tall.

2. When did you start crafting?
I got my start in crafting when I was in elementary school. My mother taught me how to fold origami birds and since then, my favorite medium to craft with has been paper.

3. What or who inspires you?
I get inspiration from different things, but one specific place is from design books. I also love reading the printpattern blog.

4. Do you have a day job?
I worked as a legal assistant until my son was born three years ago. Now I'm a stay at home mom and love it.

5. What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
The items I enjoy making the most in my shop are the wood tile and scrabble tile pendants. I love the process of taking a mundane object such as a wood tile and turning it into a pretty piece of wearable art.

Audrey's Accolades:
I seem to have developed a love for pendants. Janet has such wonderful gift sets in her shop. She also has pocket mirros and magnets all in wonderful, bright and cherry designs. Her shop makes me think of spring, birds, bees and flowers. It's a wonderful shop everyone should see.
My favorite again - is the give away item. Can't go wrong with a gift set.!! Love the pendant and the tin!!

To enter this give away - go to Little Pink Plum- look through her shop - then return here and tell me which item you would love to have. It's that easy!!
For an extra 5 entries - purchase something from Janet's shop - then leave a comment telling me what you purchased!
The Draw will be made on Feb. 28 AM!!

Audrey's Country Crafts is in no way responsible for the mailing of the prize. After the name is drawn I will contact that person. They have 3 days to respond before another name will be picked! The name and address will be forwarded to Janet at the Little Pink Plum. Thank-you for entering.
