Pleated Poppy Giveaway + Welcome

Hello beautiful people! Today I have a fabulous giveaway from one of Glitter and Gloss's newest sponsors, Lindsey of The Pleated Poppy. Many of you know Lindsey from her fabulous store, or her SUPER famous What I Wore Wednesday posts. I've had the pleasure of hanging out with Lindsey a few times, and however fun and cool you may think she is - let me assure you she is even more fun and more cool than you could imagine. She is kind and funny, and man is she talented!!

I had a couple questions for Lindsey....

How did you get started in the handmade business?

"My start in the handmade business was actually quite accidental! I was making handmade gifts for Christmas and blogging about it and was encouraged by my readers to sell my creations. I hosted a small boutique in my home, along with some friends, and made my first sales! Soon after I posted my "left-overs" on my blog and made my first online sales. Not long after I opened up my shop online and have been there for about 3 1/2 years now. It definitely wasn't the ideal way to start a business (hello no planning or experience running a business!), but it has been a huge blessing to me and my family!"

What do you LOVE about the handmade business??
"I love the handmade business because it has allowed so many of us stay-at-home moms to support our families along with our husbands, and relieve a bit of the financial pressure from them, but it also still allows me to be a wife and mom and make my family a priority. I love the flexibility my business provides, and also the daily outlet I have to be creative! My favorite part of my business is pairing fabrics together and designing new products!"

Lindsey definitely has a knack for pairing different fabrics together! She makes the most beautiful, high quality, unique products and one of YOU are very lucky because you'll be winning a $25 gift certificate to The Pleated Poppy!!!

Follow the easy instructions below and good luck!
