Here’s the short version of how to enter the giveaway:
-Enter by commenting on this post with what product you’d like if you win: necklace, bracelet or earrings. If you want to look through the etsy site and tell me what piece is specifically your favorite, I’d love to know just because I’m curious.
-Like the Facebook page and write on there that you were sent by A Musing Maralee.
Those are the two ways to enter and you can get a total of two entries. I will do the drawing tomorrow (Tuesday) at noon (CST). I will connect you with Unique2chicdesigns and you can pick one piece of equal or lesser value to the pinecone necklace I got. Just be sure and tell me which one you picked because I want to vicariously enjoy it through you.
So let’s get to know Mandy and Unique2chicdesigns!
How did you get started making jewelry?
At the time (and still today) I was a stay-at-home mom. That in itself is pretty awesome but it has its challenges, too. The biggest challenge for me was wanting to connect with the outside world. Staying at home taking care of littles is beyond great but can be isolating at times.
I had been a shopper on Etsy for a few months and then one day in the Spring of 2013, I just dove right in. I started with wire wrapped birds nests and rose rings. Then from there, I started making tiny glass beaded earrings. Finally, I stumbled into the hand stamping world and haven’t looked back. I’ll be honest, it’s a bit of an addiction. I find the most joy in the handmade community and the buyers who appreciate it. I love making someone’s vision come to life and knowing that a little piece of me is out in the world.
What is your inspiration when you create?
Life. Family life, children, MY children to be more specific. I find inspo in nature and the sea (one of my favorite things. . . and mermaids). My son is Autistic and he inspired me to create some Autism Awareness pieces for myself and that led me to offer those pieces (as well as custom orders) to the world. The same can be said for Type 1 Diabetes.
How do you find time to create?
This question actually makes me laugh. Finding time to do anything is quite a juggling act, but we make it work. Some days more things get done. Some days they don’t. And, that’s ok. Everything seems to work itself out and I have been known to work late into the evening while I watch my children sleep on video monitors and watch classic Disney movies. Yes, I’m THAT person. Total 90’s kid.
Come enter the giveaway and get something great for you, a friend, or a special family member!
