What’s better than over-priced flowers, boxed-lottery chocolate, over-sized stuffed animals, and skimpy-ill-fitting doilies!?!
Well, yes…you’re right! A set of coupons redeemable for a year’s worth of meal-planning, grocery-shopping, laundry-folding, and house-cleaning would be absolutely fantabulous (worthy of creating your very own adjective) but since I don’t own a stash of pixie dust and my last name isn’t Kardashian, I’m going to offer you something that is a LOVE, LOVE, LOVELY Valentine’s Day reality.
So, let me introduce you to Megan and this month’s Shoppe-Talk Give-Away!!
Who are you?
I am a follower of Christ, a wife, and a mommy of two (plus one more on the way)! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a seamstress, a designer, and so much more! As a mom, you pretty much do it all!
What inspired your Etsy shop?
I was able to leave my job to stay home when my daughter was 15 months old. I needed something to bring in some extra income and thought, “I could make scarves and open an Etsy shop!” I grew up with an amazing seamstress of a mother, so I figured I probably had some of that in my genes. Over the years, I’ve slowly added more than just scarves to my shop , but I usually keep my products in the “scarf” theme. My shop name, “Evelyn’s Shoppe,” is inspired by my daughter’s middle name, Evelyn, which I thought was so pretty. I also love the old spelling of “Shoppe,” so I paired the two together!
What do you enjoy most about the products you make?
I LOVE to wear scarves, making and designing them is always so much fun for me! Adding the baby scarf/bibs and headbands has also been a nice change to my shoppe, so it’s been fun to have a variety of items to make.
In the past few months, what has been one of your favorite “uploaded memories” that you hope to tuck away and treasure forever?
There are always so many with kids! I would have to say that a recent favorite has been watching how cute my oldest daughter has been about her soon-to-arrive brother or sister. She understands so much more than when her little brother was born! She’s always careful not to “rough house” near “the baby,” and she is eager to kiss and hug my belly.
Could you share a recent example of a time where you received a “downloading of grace” and how it blessed your heart?
I recently battled some random anxiety this past summer/fall. It was through an outpouring of love and service from amazing friends and God’s abundant grace that got me through it! God taught me so much through that struggle, and I’m thankful for it now.
What are you giving away?
I am giving away a $20 gift card to my shoppe, so the winner can find something they LOVE!
So how can you win this LOVELY give-away??
In the comment section below, share something you LOVE (a product, an activity, a person, a memory, a recipe, a verse…), and I will choose one, random winner on Monday morning to win the gift card!
Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!!
