Stocking Stuffer Idea… and Giveaway!

I want to introduce you to Kelly at PlumDaisy. Her clippies and hair blooms are what got me hooked! I plan to put a couple of her cute things in Beach Bunny’s stocking.

I want you to get to know Kelly a little bit. Here’s a quick little Q and A I had with her last night…

Q: How did you start your wonderful Etsy shop?

A: I am blessed with one beautiful little girl, Ava Marie {my model, below} now 3 1/2. {Where has the time gone?!} Plum Daisy was really inspired by her, her peach-fuzz head and her ever expanding wardrobe. Her prematurity at birth contributed to her lack of hair which didn't grow in until well after her first birthday. I had trouble finding headbands to dress up her head so I started making lace headbands accented with flowers for her. Lots of compliments later and a suggestion by my uncle to sell them is what drove me to open up shop on Etsy. A lot of my pieces are inspired by the boldly printed fabrics and vibrant color combinations found in Ava's wardrobe.


Q: What are your favorite hobbies?

A: I have a thirst for any kind of creative outlet. When I manage to find time I love to dabble with photography, mostly landscapes and botanicals or historic architecture. I am also getting back into simple arts and crafts that I can create with my daughter reminiscent of my Girl Scout days.

Q: {This question was extra credit- wink, wink} If you had a million bucks, what would you do with it?

A: Oooh, this IS a fun one! If I had a million dollars I would buy a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a nice lens kit and travel the world with my other half and my daughter and document it all through photographs and journals, starting with the fabulous U.S. of A.

A girl can dream, right?

Kelly would love to offer a $25 e-gift card to one lucky winner.

All you need to do is visit PlumDaisy and come back and leave a comment about what caught your eye. If you’d like a second entry, you can fan her on Facebook. Currently, she has 19 fans, and we need to change that for her. Her stuff is too cute!

Contest runs through Friday, December 11, 2009.
