Giveaway! Cute Note Card Set!

You all are going to LOVE this giveaway!

Kristen from Craft Goblin had emailed a few days ago asking if I could do a giveaway of her new shop on etsy to my readers.

After seeing her shop I knew I had to share her stuff with you guys!

*ahem* and now I shall be doing my best attempt at being Oprah interviewing someone awesome like Tom Cruise, I just hope Kristen doesn't go and jump on my couch, this shiz is from IKEA and she'll likely fall through the couch cushion.

 (you know someone rocks when they send a pic of themselves at an alice in wonderland themed wedding. Kristen and I are officially besties)

What made you want to start a handmade shop?
Q1: I have always loved art & creating things. I think it's part of my DNA! I used to sell hemp necklaces I made to local shops way back in the day & loved the thought of someone loving & using something I made. I was doing anything I could to get my craft on. Then the Etsy light bulb went off & here I am. It's all new to me & I am loving every minute of it!

How did you come up with the name craft goblin?
Q2: I'd love to say Craft Goblin has some profound underlying meaning, but that would make me a big fat liar! Honestly, I tried what seemed like a million bazillion names that were already taken. I have a small obsession with monsters and originally planned on Paper Monster - but Etsy said "NO WAY JOSE, someone's got that shit!" so Craft Goblin was a variation of Paper Monster.

If you could have a free style rap competition with ANY celeb out there who would you throw down beats with?
Q3: Hmmm... probably this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRvfR0MIcm0 Mostly because it sounds like he is saying "I make it rain like a whore" which is hilarious!

Do you remember POGS? and if so what in the world do you do with them?
Q4: POGS! I don't know what everyone else did with theirs, but I held onto mine like a mini episode of hoarders! I think my magic 8 ball with the hologram-looking edge was my favorite. Oh! I just remembered that little tube container holder thingy! That reminds me, I really miss my skip-it...

Ok, back to business, where do you get your inspiration from when designing your awesome products?
Q5: Oh boy - anywhere & everywhere! Sometimes something pops in my head & I seek out a stamp or get my paint brushes out. Other times I'll go to the craft store (AKA Disney Land) & see something I absolutely can't go another day in my life without owning & then it sits on my table staring at me until I give it a purpose in life. :D

Mason Jar Tags

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
Q6: Well, since I'm doing my first craft show this year (woohoo!) & need a kick ass display, I'm going to imagine this little wood chuck is gonna build it for me! Sooo, I'm thinking a couple 2x4's & maybe some pegboard & plywood and he'll be all set. Sweet, I can scratch that off my craft show to-do list! Thanks mr. wood chuck man!

What is one thing you have learned so far while owning a handmade shop?
Q7: It's way more work than I expected! BUT - I freaking love every second of it! It is ridiculously rewarding to think someone is buying a card to give to someone they care about. My little card, traveling to a far away land into a giver & then a recipients hands. Knowing something I created might make someone happy gives me endless  drive & fills my cup all the way up to the tippy top. That shit is overflowing!

Where can we find you to stalk yo ass?
Q8: Stalk away! I have big plans to expand, but for now you can find me on Facebook & Etsy - and can also contact me via email:

  9. Those cards are so cute! A simple Hi would be good :)


  10. These cards are so nice. Have you any unique techniques for making these cards?.

  11. thank you!

    they are a little tedious, but i hand stamp the typewriter and then hand paint the piece of paper coming out (usually takes 3-4 coats). once that dries, i hand stamp on the words and paint the red heart by dipping a super small paint brush into an ink pad :)


  12. "thanks"
    I would love to have these to toss in with orders when I ship out monsters from luanded.com! :)
