Beating the winter blues GIVEAWAY!

I found another Etsy shop & owner I'm totally diggin'. Jewelry and paper goods all at one place!
Blogging and owning an Etsy shop are two of my favorite things because I get to "cyber meet" super cool, creative, passionate people. Liz, the owner of Lizzimarie, is one such person. She's provided some things for me to give away to you, to pep you up during these long winter days cooped up indoors with kids, pets, dust bunnies horses, grumbling cubicle mates, or all of the above, vying for your attention.

You'll see Liz's ad in my margin for a while; treat yourself and a friend to a little sumpin' sumpin' handmade by her. And if you're interested in having your shop, blog, or indie business featured here, just like hers, let's chat via email. I would do ya proud. I am new at providing sponsorship opportunities so my rates are looooowww, low, low.

Now let's learn more about Miss Liz:

Hello there, I'm Liz, the crafty pair of hands behind Lizzimarie! I'm so excited that Mindy invited me to do a giveaway here on her lovely blog! A friend introduced me to the world of Etsy while I was in grad school, and I was hooked almost immediately! I've always loved all kinds of arts and crafts, and once I finished grad school this last summer, I decided to take the plunge and start my own little shop! I feel so blessed to have a "regular job" (as a children's librarian) that I really enjoy but also gives me time to create and keep up my shop and my blog, AppleJane!

I love all different types of crafts, from knitting and sewing to drawing and printmaking, and this is why my little shop has a somewhat eclectic bunch of artwork, stationary, and even jewelry! I'm still trying to pin down my design "style" but I try to create things that are simple yet have that unique touch of the handmade! My ultimate goal in all my work is to inspire others and bring glory to the One who gave me this gift of creativity!
Doesn't she sound like someone you'd be friends with in "real life"?

Liz is, ever so kindly, offering one of you her winter blues button ring ($8)
and floral pattern notebook (recycled grocery bag paper stamped with original floral design)($15).
Too cute and positively suitable for trumping the winter blues. I'm picturing one of my readers sitting in a bay window with a cup of cocoa, wearing her new ring, scribbling in her jazzy journal.
