giveaway : Clip + Pin

Hi y'all! If you've known me for long, you know that I love packaging goodies. I love packaging up my customer's order all pretty like, as I like to think that it makes everything more special by doing so. I'm always on the look out for different packaging papers, bags, ribbons, and other trinkets and a few weeks ago I stumbled upon a charming little shop called Clip + PinClip + Pin is owned by the lovely Sarah who was so kind to answer some interview questions for me. 




Tell us about yourself, what makes you, you?

Hi! My name is Sarah and I am the owner of Clip and Pin on Etsy. I am a mother of a 5 year old daughter, Zella, who keeps me busy all week long! We like to bake cookies, play with play dough, organize the house, have dance parties in the living room and snuggle in bed and read books. I am going through the process of enrolling in nursing school in Portland, where I have lived my whole life. I am a bookkeeper and property manager part-time to pay the bills, but I would love to eventually do Etsy full-time. A few goals of mine would include much travelling around the world, completing a quilt (almost done), finishing nursing school, and having a self-sufficient farm in the country. 





Tell us about your shop, blog and other creative things you do. 

I have literally tried every kind of craft, and when I found these tiny clothespins I decided to make them unique and colorful. Initially, I thought there would be no one who would possibly be interested in clothespins - but I was so wrong! I would like to make many more additions to my shop in the future, including more seasonal and "manly" items. I have a passion for decorating cakes with fondant, a passion for paper and twine, and I absolutely love kraft paper.





A few of my items will be featured in Wellwed magazine this summer and a blog publication at Style Me Pretty. These are both wedding photo shoots, and I am super excited to see how everything turns out.






 If your life were going to be made into a movie, what would the title be and who would you want to play you?

If my life were going to be made into a movie I would like to believe the title would be, "Which Way is Up?" because I have changed the direction of my life so many times, and many times I haven't known what to do with myself! I have been mistaken for Rachel Bilson many, many times, so I believe she would be completely fitting for my role!






Share your fun side! What do you do for fun? To relax? To recharge your batteries? For inspiration?
If I could do anything on the weekend, I would visit abandoned houses, visit some thrift shops, and search for a barn sale or two. Antique bottles and items with rust are scattered around my house. If I wanted to really relax and recharge my batteries, I would make some strong coffee, turn on Netflix, and watch a really interesting documentary. 






Where can we find you and your goodies?
