{Blog Sponsor: Spunk&Sass Designs}

This giveaway is now closed!



***

Spunk & Sass Designs is run by best friends Valerie and Bailey, also known as Spunk {V.} and Sass {B.}. They started creating jewelry together in the summer of 2008.



Share a fun memory creating/blogging has brought you.

{Sass}: I guess it's been about 2 years now, but {Spunk} and I used to get together while her future husband was away working for 12 hours at a time and survive on raisins, peanuts, popcorn, and diet coke while crafting until our eyes were fuzzy. I think that was when I knew we'd be great business partners. Those nights showed us our strengths and how well we play off of each other. It was the start "of a beautiful relationship".

{Spunk}: I started this business with my best friend and that's been a true blessing. The best thing so far was when we did the Gussy giveaway in November, we had one of your readers come to buy something since she didn't win. She came back again on Black Friday for our sale. She messaged me on Twitter a few days later saying she received her package, that she LOVED the jewelry, and how excited she was to wear it all. She told me that she had been looking all over for someone who does our particular style of jewelry and how glad she was that she found us. Her comments and praise made me so happy. We've received a lot of positive feedback, but nothing to that extent. So to receive her comments was very exciting and motivational.




What do you enjoy most about it?


{Sass}: I love most that it is such an expressive hobby. You can tell days that I'm feeling ubber creative due to the difficulty level and the amount I make. You can wear any old necklace, but to wear something you made or something someone handmade for you, I just feel that is empowering.

{Spunk}:
I really just enjoy sitting with all my beads and materials around me and beading. I like to see what different things I come up with. I love taking pictures of the jewelry and putting them online for people to buy. It makes me really happy that people want to buy my jewelry. That's one of the best feelings.

I would wear that necklace out on a sweet date with my hubby... it is funny b/c when we go out I usually wear this one necklace... it is long silver and has 3 strands that tend to get tangled. Whenever we are going out I hand it to him and ask him to un-tangle it for me. The last time that happened, he sighed and said "we've got to get you a new 'going out' necklace, one that doesn't tangle"
LOL

super cute necklace
super generous giveaway
...here's hoping!
