Chrysalis Etsy Giveaway

Chrysalis Etsy Giveaway

Today's Etsy Giveaway is for a Butterfly Mobile from Chrysalis! ($15)

How cute is that? :) Here's some more info on it:
These mobiles are made from recycled magazines and are completely hand made. The strands vary from 4 to 10 butterflies and come in a variety of colors. Each butterfly is unique! Strands can be hung as individual accents or in a group for maximum effect. You will receive five strands of varied lengths.

Now for the interview:

1. First things first, tell us a little more about yourself...

Alexandria, VA
No kids unless you count a 4.5# rat terrier :-)

2. What is your regular job?

I work in finance for a nonprofit and am studying to become an antique appraiser.(past careers/jobs include editing, owning a small antique store, and a sheep milk soap business)

3. Do you Haiku?

Lustrously Soft Fashion
Colors dyed, vibrantly rich
Woven warmth discovered

4. What inspires you?

I tend to draw most of my inspiration from the little things that people rarely notice - the squirrel hunting for nuts, the old couple in the coffee shop or the occasional scrapbook I find at an estate sale. I love learning about people through their music, the momentos they've kept throughout the years, or the little notes scribbled in book margins. And color! Sunsets, sunrises...each one is so different and brilliant!

5. What item in your shop is your favorite and why?

Besides my butterfly mobiles, my second favorite item in my store right now are these earrings. As I mention in the listing, these came from a really unique estate sale. I spent hours learning about this amazing couple and was really inspired by their strength and love for each other. These earrings are stunning and knowing a little bit of the story behind them really makes them sparkle!
