Giveaway: Earrings from SmileForSuzy

This week's giveaway prize is a choice of earrings from etsy seller SmileForSuzy. Suzy is a fun girl whose works are self admittedly funky, oddball, a little weird, and slightly offbeat. To win, just visit SimleForSuzy, look around, read her entertaining item descriptions, and then leave a comment here (by next Thursday at 8pm PST) with your favorite item and a way to contact you. Easy as pie.

Want to know more about Suzy? Read her blog, check out her professional portfolio here, and read my interview with her below.

How/why did you get into this stuff? I didn't discover shrinkydinks till I was already in college. And I felt so cheated from my childhood because I totally missed out on all this color and baking glory. So once I discovered shrinkydinks, I really just started doodling on the plastic and baking things and it just went on from there.

What word do you like? sweet! I know the word I like and the word I dislike aren't far off from each other. To each his own.

What word do you dislike? score! when used in place of a high five. I don't really know why.

Where/when so ideas hit you? Usually I'll try to sit down and consciously think of ideas. But every now and then I'll just see something while I'm out and it'll spark something and I'll have to write a note on my hand to remember.

Describe your perfect workspace. Sitting outside on a lounge chair in the sun with a board on my lap coloring and drawing.

What the craziest place you've ever been or thing you've ever done? Bonnaroo Music Festival 2 years in a row. It's four days of standing 12-18 hours in the sun with thousands of other people all for the music. Did I mention you camp on the premises?

What drives or motivates you? I love the feeling of creating. Sometimes I'll get anxious if it's been too long since I've made something out of nothing, I'll have to stop and do something then. It's a great feeling of release and I love the idea that people out there are wearing something I've created.

Tell me a random fun fact about you. I'm left handed, and so are my brother and mom. When I was growing up I didn't realize it was an unusual thing until they started teaching writing in school.
Thanks Suzy and good luck!
