{This Neck of the Woods} Giveaway

8.30.2010

All the way from Germany, I'm excited to share the beautiful shop, 'This Neck of the Woods'... Claire, who screen prints all her own papers for her garlands, has generously offered a butterfly garland (of the winner's choice)+ shipping (Worth over 35 dollars)! All the garlands and mobiles in Claire's shop are made using high quality German papers... What a lovely way to add some life to any space! Thank you Claire!

 

Claire has taken the time to answer a few questions:
What does a perfectly ordinary day in your life look like?
"I generally get up at around 6.15, get to work around 7.45 and stay till 5ish. After that, I come home, check emails, maybe go for a run, and then get down to making orders, reprinting paper or answering emails. We generally have dinner around 7.30, then watch some TV while I work on a garland. At about 9.30 I package up any orders needed to be sent the next day, then watch some more tv or read, and by 10.30ish, I'm in bed!"

What time of year most inspires you?
"I love Spring (because it's finally the end of winter!) and Christmas.. because I love the atmosphere that surrounds that time of year, plus the Christmas markets here in Europe are amazing!"

What do you think of as comfort food?

Hmm well we went to a market today and bought 2 mini caramel pies, a mini cheese cake, a mini apricot pie and some seasoned almonds.. all sounds pretty comforting to me! :)

If you could hop on a plane, without giving one thought to your budget, where would you go?
"Oh that's a tough one, there are so many places I'd love to go! At this very point in time (given the rainy weather here) I'd love to find some sun on an island.. maybe in the Maldives.. yeah."

What are five things you would like to do in the next five years?

"I would like to: travel more, do volunteer work, build a full time business from my crafting, buy/build a house somewhere, to own a dog."
