Sweet Caroline (bum bum bum!) Sponsor HIghlight & Giveaway!

Yes, I know, that blog title brings you back to, like, every single wedding you have ever been to--arm in arm in a giant circle full of your closest family and friends, and then everyone sings in unison...SWEEEEEET CAROLINEEEE.....BUM BUM BUMMMMMMMMM!!!


ha. ok. moving.

Have you all met the lovely Caroline? If not, be ready to fall in love.

Caroline is like my lil southern texan twin. We pretty much have thee same exact sense of humor, which is one of the reasons why I must meet miss Caroline in person and squeeze the bajezus outta her.

In case you all weren't aware, I am obssesed with the following:
• headbands
• scarves
Joshua Jackson (waddup 1998)
• scarves
• scarves

(see a pattern?)

(Yeah, I know, Joshua Jackson totally threw you off, I had an 8th grade moment right there,  just go with it)

Check out this little lovely that I own from Caroline, you will swoon over it--outta 10 your swoon-o-meter will be at a staggering 53 (I like odd numbers)


See how incredibly stoked I am to be wearing a ballin' infinity scarf? Doncha wanna feel as epic as I did in that very moment in time?

Well, you can, if you keep reading ;) Kick it Caroline!

1. Tell us about your shop! We wanna know what made you want to start your online store, how you came up with your shop name and what kind of suh-weet awesome amazing products your 2 hands make!
In the Spring of 2010 friend of mine was hosting a charity event that sold art pieces. She knew I sewed/crafted/etc. so she asked me if I would donate some items to her event. I donated 10 headbands, some earrings, and a couple of pillow cases. The FLEW off the shelves. All in the name of charity... but still- they were gone with in 15 minutes of the event opening. So with the encouragement of my friends and family, I decided to open up shop. Since then, its been a wild ride.

2. What is your most favorite hand made item that you own?
from someone else's shop? hands down my gussy sews bag. It is roomy & the straps are SOOOO comfortable. TOTALLY worth the moolah! From my shop? every. single. one. of my infinity scarves. I could wear them all!!

3. What 3 items from your shop make you go "awww yeah I TOTALLY made that, and what?"

and this. boom.

4. If you could hit someone in the face with a pie what flavor would the pie be? (you thought I was gonna ask who you would hit, didn't you?) (nope, I just really dig pie) (ok, I have a pie problem, judge me) (ok you can answer the question now)
uhhh what the what?? ha~ i love banana creme and that would be super fluffy and messy so probably that. And even though you didn't ask, I'd probably hit you in the face. Only to see your reaction... no hard feelings, I swear ;)

5. QUICK: would you rather be given the ability to fly OR be invisible.
FLY. Fa sho. I've always wanted to be a bird in a different life.

6. Hidden Talent? (Come on, I KNOW you totally have one)
I can sing... :)

7. What advice can you give to other indie shop owners out there?
be patient, stay creative, & have a trustworthy sounding board.
I also wrote a guest post here on this same topic if you want to have a peek ;)
