Owl Necklace Giveaway!

Contest is now closed, thank you!




It's giveaway time again! This week's Etsy shop sponsor is Expressions by Cheree, a cute shop loaded with fun and affordable accessories. She's offering one lucky winner a super cute owl necklace! Let's get to know Amber and her shop:

1. How long has your Etsy shop been open and what inspired you to start selling on Etsy?

My shop has been open since October 2009. One day I was browsing through the internet and came across Etsy. Seeing all of the beautiful creations inspired me to start selling on Etsy. I thought how awesome it would be to have so many people all over the world see my creations and about two weeks later have been doing so ever since.

2. How do you fit time to create into your day?

Since I work full time and also go to school full time, I'm usually creating some of the hours I should be sleeping. There just aren't enough hours in a day for me. I wish instead of 24 hours it was more like 48 hour days. Late night and weekends is when I do most of my creating.


3. Do you have any hobbies outside of your shop?

I love shopping, traveling, reading, going to the movies and bowling. I haven't really been enjoying too many of my hobbies since opening my shop because I'd rather create new items, but my shop is totally worth it.

4. What's your favorite thing about Etsy?

My favorite thing about Etsy is being able to communicate with such talented people and being able to create whatever you want to. I enjoy having my creations shown with other wonderful and unique ones.

You can keep in touch with Amber's shop on Twitter, Flickr, and on her blog!




Ok, ready to win this cute owl necklace? There are six possible entries, none of them are mandatory - please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win (email written as youATwhereverDOTcom, etsy shop name, or Ravelry name are all fine) just being signed into blogger is not enough info for me to contact you :) Contest is open to both US and International folks and runs until Monday morning, June 28th. Here's how to enter, remember, none of these are mandatory, so do as many as you'd like but leave a separate comment for each entry - multiple entries in one comment won't be counted, thanks!

1. Visit Expressions by Cheree and then leave a comment here letting me know your favorite piece in her shop.

2. Follow this blog.

3. Follow Amber's blog.

4. Follow Amber on Twitter.

5. "Like" Vegancraftastic on Facebook.

6. Tweet, blog, or post on Facebook about this contest.

Good luck!

-Kala
