It's a Bird. It's a Plane. It's GUSSY! GiveAway!

{{Let's be honest. My week of favorite giveaways would not be complete with out some Gussy!}} 
Gussy is full of spunk and sass-she so cute and fun. I'd even argue that everybody loves them some Gus-Gus!

If you don't know Gussy yet, don't fret. Allow me to introduce you. She isn't hard to get to know...oh-and she makes such cute bags, pouches, and headbands! At the young age of 25 she has been able to quit her day job and make GUSSY her full-time j-o-b! I'd say she is quite a success!

{{1. What made you decide to open your shop?}}
I wanted to learn how to sew, so one day I checked out a basketful of books from the library and read them at home. Suddenly I was sewing -- lots and lots of items, all with a ruffle. I needed a place to sell my wares, so I set up an Etsy shop. Once business was consistent I moved to Big Cartel where I am able to focus. 


{{2. Where do you find inspiration to create your lovely wares?}}I find inspiration in fabrics that make me feel happy, energized and full of life. I think that's why I'm drawn to offering such fun, bright colors. My Gussy products are products I'd buy if I were shopping for an accessory. 


{{3. What brings joy in your everyday life?}}Right now, a lot of my daily joy is from recently accomplishing a huge dream/life goal: quitting my day job to pursue Gussy full-time. It's SO CRAZY to know I'm 25-years-old and I have my own business. But it's equally thrilling. I love accomplishing things, and this business satisfies so many of my needs (accomplishment, organization, community/networking, creativity, success). 


{{Excited yet?!}}

Gussy has generously agreed to give one lucky reader a $25 gift certificate to her shop!
