Sponsor Highlight and a Giveaway!

Hello Bloggie World!

I am so stoked to introduce you guys to one of my newest Sponsors!

Her name is Jana, and she's pretty rad. She is the lovely lady behind Weekend Vintage.

She has an etsy shop which is PERFECT for all my other etsy shop own friends out there! She sells unique supplies to spruce up your branding and packaging to your loyal customers.

She also makes some pretty cute swag. Totally crushin on this piece! (If you're an etsy shop owner who lives on twitter, facebook, etsy and blogspot then you know how important this lil tidbit of advice is)

Let's get a lil looksie into the life of Jana!

What made you want to start an Etsy Shop? 
My sons started growing up and I miss them. And I wanted to do something creative so I wouldn't miss them so much. Josh just finished his first year at Wheaton College in Chicago and Chase is a senior in High school.I love fun packaging supplies so what better way to have some fun. I sew too so I periodically add a few handmade items to the shop. Right now I'm into Door Keepers but I'm also working on a line of upcycled handbags.

What was the first item you ever sold and how uh-may-zing did it feel? 
Twill tape-yup. so fun to get the email. It's fun every time. It never gets old.

QUICK! You are on a sinking life raft and need to use at least 3 items from your shop to fix your boat and flag down help--which items do you use and how?
I'm doomed. Is the weather nice on this lifeboat? And would i have laundry or dishes to wash? Maybe I will just swim over to another life boat and stay out there.

If you could go jump in a giant ball pit (because who WOULDNT want to do that?! Now I know what I'm doing this weekend…) what would you replace the balls with?
Marshmallows ....great color and texture.

Got any secret talents?
I cook everything from scratch. I eat full fat dairy and red meat. Don't hate me. I'm making gluten free granola right now.

Which TV show are you so in love with that you would miss your best friend's wedding for?
I'm a die hard Shark Tank Fan. You just never know if they will like the product or not.
Which of your fashion accessories instantly makes you feel oh-so-perdie?
My Platinum Pearls from J Crew...yummy.
Thanks Jana!
