Sponsor Giveaway: Whimsical Poppysmic

**Update: I've extended the deadline of this giveaway to Tuesday, May 17 at 10 PM EST because of the great blogger blackout of 2011.

This week's giveaway is from the wonderful Chrissy of Whimsical Poppysmic. If you're not familiar with Chrissy's work, I suggest you head on over to her blog and check it out. You should also read through the rest of this post to learn more about her and to possibly win something really cute!





Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Christina, but ever since I can remember I have been called Chrissy! I am married to my best friend and we got married on the same day as William and Kate, only 8 years ago! We moved to the US with our daughter (she will be 8 on May 8th) and pup from Germany almost 3 years ago for 3 years (with the option of staying longer), but we just recently decided to move back by the end of the summer (which means, we will be here for only 3 more months)! I am kind of excited, I miss family and friends so much, but I am also sad to leave! We have this saying in German " to leave with one laughing and one crying eye" - that's how I feel!


When and why did you decide to open your Etsy shop?
I started blogging last September and started showing my creations on my blog and the response from my bloggy friends was so positive and encouraging that I decided to open my Etsy shop Whimsical Poppysmic last December!


What is your favorite part about blogging?
My favorite part about blogging is the wonderful people you meet every single day! I have made so many friends since I started and meet new amazing and inspiring bloggers every day! I could not imagine not to blog anymore!


What is your favorite part about running a handmade business?
Having a handmade biz is so much fun! Coming up with new ideas, drawing inspiration from everywhere I go...always with a notebook in my purse...it is such a great hobby for me! And, getting positive feedback (especially for custom orders) from your customers is such a good and satisfying feeling!


What is your favorite thing to make?
It is hard to tell you just one favorite thing I make....I love so much and wish I could do it all at the same time! I really love creating things from felt, I love embroidery and cross-stitching and knitting was one of my first passions!!




And now for the giveaway... Here's the loot:
Chrissy is giving away one of her iPod/cell/gadget cases in the color/size/style of the winner's choice. That's right, if you're chosen as the winner, your case will be custom-made to fit your phone or iPod and you can choose from the many different designs available at Whimsical Poppysmic.
