{Blog Sponsor: Pretty Things by Meg}

This giveaway is now closed!



***
Hello readers, please meet my in-real-life friend, Meg: the gal behind Pretty Things by Meg. Meg is another blog sponsor. She makes allllll sorts of gorgeous vintage jewelry. Her favorite color is pink and you can definitely see that throughout her pieces. What kinds of jewelry does Meg make? Earrings, bracelets and necklaces. {All of her pieces are my favorite pieces.} :)


***

How long have you been designing/blogging? I actually started blogging and designing right around the same time... about a year ago.




What do you enjoy most about it?
What I enjoy most is dreaming up the design. I love to combine contrasting textures and unusual colors. I also relish stumbling upon vintage pieces... and then marrying them with new piece, to create a style my husband has dubbed "vintern." It feels great to know that any given piece of jewelry I create is absolutely one-of-a-kind.




Give us a little background info on yourself. I am a quarter of a century old, I have an amazing and inspiring husband whom I love very much, and a ridiculously adorable pup that I could cuddle with all day long. I have a degree in English Lit and plan on pursuing my Master's within the next few years. I attribute my love of creating to my grandma - she is one of the craftiest people I know (crafty in the artistic sense; she is certainly not conniving ;)).

Besides creating, I enjoy cooking, decorating, singing/playing music with my hubby, traveling, reading, and knitting. I love to learn new arts... I am currently learning how to crochet :) Next is sewing (and after that, learning the ukulele) :)





Where do you see yourself in one year? Now this is a tricky question... I can tell you where I hope to be. Right now I am stuck in a boring and unfulfilling desk job; a year from now, I hope to be at a new job where I am doing meaningful work that I am passionate about. Of course, I also hope that my Etsy shop is continuing to blossom and has expanded to include other types of handmade pretties in addition to jewelry.




Share a fun memory creating/blogging has brought you. A couple months back, a woman from France contacted me on Etsy wondering if I'd be interested in selling my jewelry in her shop. So my Pretty Things are now available in a shop called La Boutique in Sarthe, France :)
