Friday Feature & GIVEAWAY: Tropical Snow Shoppe

Today I introduce to you the owner of Tropical Snow Shoppe, Jessica.  



Jessica strives to make good quality products while keeping them affordable for buyers.  She has always enjoyed scrapbooking and cardmaking, but now jewelry and hair accessories are her adventure, and she's loving it!
 
I asked Jessica how she came up with her shop name.  
This was her answer:


Well, my last name is Snow, my maiden name is Brazeal, and my intention was to include some of my handmade items as well as some of my unmarried sister's items. So combining Brazeal(Brazil-you know, like the country) and Snow, I came up with the super cheesy "Tropical Snow Shoppe". Sorta reminds me of those snow cone huts that pop up everywhere during the hot summer months. I'll probably change it if I can come up with something better.  :-)


The peacock feather items in her shop are so very pretty.  Take a look at this piece:
Jessica says: This headband is one of my favorites because (I believe) it is my own unique design. I haven't seen any other peacock headbands that are made in the same fashion.

I asked how she got started in working with feathers.  Here's what she said:
I LOVE peacock feathers! Teal/turquoise is my absolute favorite color and I love pairing it with a nuetral, so naturally peacock feathers were the perfect medium for me to work with. I had been eyeing some gorgeous peacock headbands for a while and wondering if I could make one myself when my sister in law asked me to make one for her. I loved the way that one turned out and decided to try my hand at some other designs. They got a bunch of compliments and I decided to try them on Etsy!

Daylight Savings Time is less than a month away. I asked Jessica the following: Do you look forward to longer days? What is the thing you like most about Spring Season?

I love sunlight! So, yes, I am looking forward to longer days. Even though, obviously, I don't have any more time in my day, I like the thought of at least having more light in my day. Besides, it holds some sentimental value for me as well. My son was born, on the dot, at daylight savings time. So his official date of birth was an hour after he was actually born!
My favorite thing about Spring is...the smell. Seriously, we live out in the country and as Spring approaches you can just start to smell it. And the smell always reminds me of when I was young and my dad and brothers would start baseball practice. I always loved going to the ballpark and cheering for my brothers. So every time I smell Spring it reminds me of my very happy childhood!


Jessica is giving one lucky 2justByou Blog reader one of her awesome Peacock Feather stretch headbands!  Boho Chic and fashionably perfect for the upcoming Spring Season.  She's also generously offered a coupon code for 2justByou readers!!!  Use JBY15 to save 15% on your order.  Plus, if you order, come back here and leave a comment letting me know what you purchased, and I'll give you an extra entry. =0)
