happy monday, everyone! 
today, i'm bringing you a great giveaway from a special gal...my mom! that's right, folks, the woman that gave me every ounce of creative juice has her very own little business! i'm thrilled to be hosting her very first giveaway. 
that's my mom on the right!
a little about her first:
Hi I'm Deb, the owner of The Dotted Poppy shop on Etsy.  More impressive though,
I'm the mother of two amazingly talented girls (you may know who I'm talking about)
and a handsome son. ;)  I've sat back in amazement as I've watched Kate and Lauren
create their jewelry business; Elisabeth Ashlie, and their blogs.  While I'm definitely
a project junkie, (due to the excessive amount of creative juices coursing through my
veins) as I watched my girls create fun and amazing jewelry, I just couldn't get
my juices to flow in that area.  They kept encouraging me to try...it just wasn't 
happening. Last September, Lauren needed a little help with a few items she was
creating and as 'Mom', I stepped right in to offer my assistance.  One piece lead
to two...three...seven...twenty.....thirty, yes, I made thirty pieces of jewelry in
one weekend.  I was addicted!!  I sold a few pieces for a time at Elisabeth Ashlie,
but then I decided to follow in my daughter's footsteps (wait! aren't daughters 
suppose to follow in their mother's footsteps?!) and open my own shop on Etsy.  And
that's what I did just last week...The Dotted Poppy.  I enjoy creating pieces that are
different then what you may find in a store.  Truth be told, I could sit at my table for
hours creating jewelry, but, in true form, I currently have two major room redo projects
going on right now in my home, so I actually have set my timer to a determined amount
of time that I can allow myself to sit and make jewelry.  And I look so forward to my 
'time out' with my supplies. :)  (I truly am addicted, aren't I?!)   
I have many pieces that are perfect for adding to a gift for someone, or for completing
an outfit for you!
