giveaway: nancy jo studio

today's giveaway is from nancy jo studio, a shop full of handsewn handmades. i simply love a clutch or wallet that adds a little punch to the day's ensemble. a pretty pouch like hers is sure to collect compliments with every purchase from here on out. here's to adding a touch of cuteness at the cash register!

giving :: one sweet wallet pouch with wrist strap or key chain. (the winner can choose any color combo they want; stripes or solid. of course, any design in the shop can be made into a wallet size.)

please comment today to enter to win. good luck!
tell me three (materialistic) things you cannot live without.
you only have until midnight, this post will be updated with the winner.

a bit of a bio :: I currently live in Indianapolis after a few years of moving around. I am trained only in the literary arts, and have my undergrad English degree from Loyola and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from a small little school in Boulder, CO, called Naropa. Right now I also work as a waitress and a book editor. I started sewing a few years ago, during my last year at grad school. My favorite color is turquoise and I am soothed by tasks that others may find tedious, such as cutting out flower petals and sewing them on one at a time, hand beading, etc. I am mostly inspired by color and love bright and cheerful things, as well as sparkly things like crystals and rhinestones which I am gradually adding to my items. Aside from sewing I love to read, write, run, watch bad reality tv, and cook (and eat).

I also enjoy creating custom items for my customers. I make baby quilts by custom order, and I love to hear people's wedding colors and inspirations in order to make a special line of bags just for their bridesmaids. I think clutches to use on the wedding day or little custom makeup bags make really good bridesmaids gifts.

congratulations to... cleverly content who commented, can't cope without: mascara, sunglasses and dr. pepper.

thank you nancy for sharing these patchwork pretties!
please visit her shop + blog.
