Friday Feature & GIVEAWAY: The Shop at Pooh Corner

Today's Friday Feature is a great shop offering vintage finds, paper goods and craft supplies!  Fracesca is the owner of The Shop at Pooh Corner, which just celebrated it's first full year on Etsy this past Wednesday, January 9th!  I'm going to share with you that she's having a special sale in honor of this milestone, but you have to scroll down to find out more info on that.  Make sure you click on the images and check out her shop and the wonderful assortment of items for sale!



When asked how she got started with Etsy and/or crafting, this is what Francesca said:

"I've always loved working with paper, but I actually got started on Etsy selling vintage first because I love thrift store shopping. Then I decided to learn how to use the Cricut machine my mother-in-law got me so I could sell some handmade items too."






And I also wondered, how did she come up with her cute shop name?  Here's her answer:
"I love classic Winnie-the-Pooh. I wanted my shop name to represent the imagination and innocence found in the books."
  


What inspires Francesca to create? 
"The desire to be productive. I have a lot of free time, so I like knowing that I'm doing something that uses my skills and imagination and brings in some extra income. I try to make fun, unique products and be resourceful (that's where the idea for confetti came from--you can get a lot out of a little scrap of paper!)."

And something fun...What makes her laugh???
"My son when he acts silly (he's two) and kid movies, especially those by Dreamworks. My favorite is Kung Fu Panda."


Since Valentine's Day is fast approaching, Francesca is giving one lucky 2justByou Blog reader a set of 6 cute red & black squirrel "nuts for you" tags and red mini heart confetti (100 pieces), shown above!  To enter, just fill out the rafflecopter form below.  Giveaway ends on Saturday, January 26 at midnight, Eastern Standard Time.  Open worldwide.
