Feature Friday and Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Ive started my features!!! Im going to start today and follow up with a new shop every Friday! The first shop being featured is....... Peppermint Sage and she was kind enough to do a giveaway with the feature! (Scroll to the bottom of the feature for entering details!) And what an adorable shop it is! Heres a little bit of information on the shop from the shop owner!


My shop started because I work for the State of California and I decided to be proactive and use my furlough days as a way to generate extra income. I wanted to do something with re-purposed fabric, so I started off making reversible wine bags and sunglass cases...but I found myself gravitating to making accessories and mostly that is what I make now. Headbands, bib necklaces, and some crochet ear warmers. The shop name is a compilation of my dog's name: Peppermint and Sage because that is my favorite color and I garden too so it just seemed to flow.


I started learning to crochet in college about 7 years ago, from my roommate. I just learned to sew a few months ago because I always wanted to learn but never had the opportunity. So, with the help of the internet and a couple of friends I resurrected my mom's sewing machine from the garage and picked it up quick. I’m a gal in my early thirties, who loves to create pretty things. While also going back to college for a second degree in Nutrition, and I just enjoy hanging with family and friends.


Where else can you find PeppermintSage??? On her blog of course =)

  2. Great feature - I too started my shop because I work for the government (The navy in San Diego) and I was, well, bored at work! I decided to put my extra time to use and do things I love (designing, writing, creating) and now I am pointing towards quitting my day job (hopefully this year)!

    Peppermint and Sage - The items in your shop are super cute and I wish you the best of luck!

  5. I follow your blog... of course, I love the giveaway item, but I also love the Winter Wonderland cowl... perfect for when it's really cold and you don't have a scarf with you since this fits right in your purse.
