Simply Smiss Giveaway

This Giveaway has been closed.
Please check back each Monday for a new Giveaway!
Also throughout the week for lots of fun :)



It's time for my weekly giveaway - and this week is a friend who I've bought from - and sold too! We chat all the time online and I showed off the above hair clips because I have them and wear them all the time :) Aren't they perfect for me? Now for you to meet my friend Jenn of Simply Smiss:

1. Where can we find your work and what do you create?

2. What's your favorite part about being an independent artist? 
It's all stuff I enjoy making, and it's great to get feedback from buyers about how much they like it!

3. Where do you find your inspiration? 
The internet, and other artists.  

4. What advice would you give to other artists?
Do what you love, not just what you think will make money. Otherwise you will do something that just feels like a chore. It's much better to do something you enjoy, and then have other people appreciate it as well.

Now for her giveaway! You can win any 2 Pairs regular size button hair clips, or any 1 badge reel. You already saw one of her clips, and here's my favorite badge reel in her shop! 



So how can you win?

1. Comment on this entry
2. Share their favorite item from her shop(s) (scroll up for links)
3. Plurk or twitter about it and leave a comment with link.
4. Blog about it and leave a comment with link
5. Purchase an item from her shop (for 5 entries) (links above)

Important: All entries must be submitted by comments on this blog post.
I'm keeping track of the entries, so telling Jenn about them won't help :P

Interested in doing an artist feature/giveaway on this blog? Just let me know!

And there is still a sale going in my shop! 15% off at Rose Works Jewelry :)
