Johnson Family Zoo Giveaway!























This week's feature and giveaway comes to us from Lisa at Johnson Family Zoo.  Lisa's shop is full of all sorts of cute handmade goodies including some really adorable and functional reusable produce bags - plus she's a Vegan Etsy teamie, yay! Let's get to know Lisa and her shop, plus read on to find out how you can enter to win either your choice of any set of produce bags or item under $14 from her shop!

1. When did you open your Etsy shop and what inspired you to start selling on Etsy?

I've had my shop open about 2 months. I'm an Etsy newbie! I'd love to have some great story on what inspired me to be creative & share my items, but really it was the economy that inspired me! I recently took a 10 percent paycut! This was the kick in the pants I needed to start my etsy shop! I figured I could go out there & look for a second job, or do something I love and try to make a little extra money in the process!

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

Since I'm a teacher, I just had a 6 week break from work! This gave me lots of time for getting up & running on etsy, crafting, keeping up with team blogs, visiting the post office, etc. My first week back to work KILLED me! I had no time for crafting. I am hoping the next few weeks will allow me to find some balance. I hope to carve out even an hour a day for crafting!


















3. What are some of your favorite Etsy shops?

I am fascinated with the other vegan shops- especially ones offering bath & body products! When I first went vegan, finding these were hard in my town and even online, if you don't know where to look. It's great to see them all in one place and made by people who really care & put their heart into it! I am looking forward to trying some great products once my make-up case runs low!

Lisa is also generously offering Free Shipping on US orders $14 or over or international orders $25 or over - just mention Vegancraftastic when you order from her on Etsy.
























Ok, ready to win? There are six possible entries to win your choice of any set of reusable produce bags from Johnson Family Zoo, only the first entry is mandatory, and please leave a separate comment for each entry. Also, please leave a way of contacting you if you win (etsy shop name, ravelry name, twitter name, whatever you're comfortable with):

1. Visit Johnson Family Zoo on Etsy then come back here and let me know your favorite item.

2. Add Lisa's shop to your Etsy favorites (heart her).

3. Follow this blog.

4. Follow Vegancraftastic on Twitter.

5. "Like" Vegancraftastic on Facebook.

6.  Blog, tweet, or post on Facebook about this giveaway.

Giveaway is open until Monday August 9th and is open to both US and international folks. Good luck!

-Kala
