I LoVe BoWs GiveAWAY!

{{It is no secret that I am a girly girl! That is why this giveaway from Annie at Wattlebird is perfect for my birthday giveaway week!}} 
Annie is best known {at least to me} for her creative hats! She is so talented. You have to check these out!

Like I said, Annie is super talented. She makes scarves, earrings, necklaces, tote bags, and other things too! I just think her hats are fun and I always get a kick out of them and they are not something that you see every day so I wanted to share them with you.

Here is more about Annie before we get to the giveaway details!

{{1. What made you decide to open your etsy shoppe?}} 
I had been knitting for several years, and I was always making things and just giving them away or keeping them for myself. I had way too many items and didn't know what to do with them. I just enjoyed making them. Everyone kept telling me that I should try to sell them, but I didn't really know how to get started. I learned about Etsy during my sophomore year of college and I instantly fell in love. It took me awhile to really get started (I created my account over a year before I listed my first item), and I'm still getting used to the whole process, but I really enjoy it, and I'm glad that other people get to enjoy some of my creations.

{{2. Where do you find inspiration to create your lovely etsy wares?}}
A lot of my inspiration comes from my friends and family. I make a lot of hats that look like animals or cartoon characters, and most of the ideas for those came from someone telling me "my son really likes Spongebob - do you have a Spongebob hat?" I say, "No I don't, but I will in a few days." 

{{3. What brings you joy in your every day life?}}
Everything. That probably sounds like a really cheesy answer, but it's true. I'm a really happy person, and most of the people and things I surround myself with on a day-to-day basis are things that make me happy. 

Isn't she fun? You should read her blog. She makes costumes for her friends for when they go to special movie premieres. no joke! Recently they went to see Toy Story 3 and you better believe they went in full on costume!
