Swarovski Ring Giveaway from Trinkets N Whatnots!


Today's Etsy shop feature and giveaway comes to us from Janet and her beautiful shop, Trinkets N Whatnots. Janet's shop is full of gorgeous handmade jewelry and she's generously offering a prize of one lucky winner's choice of any Swarovski ring from her shop! Let's get to know Janet and her shop:

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

I opened my etsy shop August 2007. I had been making jewelry since getting out of the Navy in 2005. I sold my jewelry to friends and family and at craft shows with great success. So I decided to try to find other avenues to sell, and I google how to sell jewelry online. The first result was a site called Etsy. I had never heard of it, but I liked what I read and the feel of the site and it was minimal risk to invest in Etsy. So that is how I got started on Etsy.



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

Finding time to create I think is probably one of the bigger challenges any artist has. I am naturally a night person, and find that I am most creative at night when there are no distractions. So I work for a minimum of 2 hours a night. That is my rule. Of course, once I get started it is hard to stop since I really enjoy creating. It really helps to write down goals, to help motivate and keep me on track.



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

I have played the piano since I was 5 years old and I collect dragonflies :)



Ok, ready to win a beautiful Swarovski Ring from Janet's shop? There are eight possible entries, only the first one is mandatory, and please leave a separate comment for each entry.  Also, please make sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win :) Entries:

1. Visit Trinkets N Whatnots on Etsy and then leave a comment here letting me know your favorite item.

2. Add Trinkets N Whatnots to your Etsy favorites.

3. Follow Janet's blog.

4. Follow Janet on Twitter.

5. "Like" Janet's shop on Facebook.

6. Follow this blog.

7. "Like" Vegancraftstic on Facebook.

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

Entries are open to both US and international folks and giveaway ends on Monday, August 30th. Good luck!
