Giveaway: Along for the Ride

Today's giveaway is from Laura of Along for the Ride. Her blog is one of my favorites, and her shop is equally as cute! So let's learn a little about her:




Tell us a bit about yourself
I'm married to my handsome hubby Kyle and we have a sweet kitty cat named Jupiter. I am a hall coordinator and I love every minute of my job! I live and work in a residence hall supervising my RA staff and helping to educate approximatley 400 students. Let's just say that it's never boring! When I'm not working my full time job, I'm working on my shop, Along for the Ride. I feature handmade jewerly and accessories. I also have a blog called Along for the Ride. I see all of these things as a way to worship the Lord and be along for the ride that he has planned for me.


What made you decide to open up a handmade shop? 
I have been making jewelry and other accessories for quite a while, and it was getting to the point where I could only wear so many hair pins myself. I love creating so I thought I'd share with others and see where it went.

What is your favorite part about blogging? 
Hands down, the people. I have met some amazing women through my blog and love getting to know their heart and see the way that God is using all of us. I have a degree in journalism, so writing has always been something I'm passionate about. I love that my blog is my personal space to share my faith, my crafts, my job, my life. 

When and how did you get started crafting? 
I've been making jewerly since my first year of college. One day a friend and I stumbled into a bead store. We fell in love with all the pretty colorful beads and we figured we should probably learn how to make something with them. I've tried lots of new designs and styles but jewelry making will always be my favorite creative outlet. I got a sewing machine last Christmas and at first I was really nervous to learn. I kept it in the box until I took a sewing class in March. After that there was no stopping me!


***

And now for the giveaway! Here's the loot: 
Laura is offering one winner two pairs of her famous bias tape earrings in the colors of their choice. This giveaway will close on Wednesday, February 16 at 10 pm EST and a winner will be selected randomly. Giveaway is open internationally.
