Sponsor Love+ Discount + GIVEAWAY: Just for Love

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!



I want to introduce you all to the FABULOUS Laura from Just for Love.

Photobucket


I've known Laura for quite some time. We have both followed each other's blog since the WAY beginning. Laura is the sweetest and makes some adorable accessories.

Here's Laura with some more information about herself so you can get to know her too.

-Tell us a little about yourself.

Hi! My name is Laura and I'm a 25 year old stay-at-home wife and momma. We're expecting our second son in just about 6 weeks and couldn't be more excited about it! I love to laugh and have fun with friends and family; I'm very silly : ). Starbucks lattes are my favorite, but I prefer Dunkin Donuts coffee grounds when I'm making a cup at home...is that weird? My days are filled with playing, painting, play-doh, making noises for my son's toy cars, and lots of hugs and kisses. I love skinny jeans with high heels (oh how I've missed you during pregnancy!), big sunglasses, fresh lip gloss, coffee, polka dot anything, HUGE handbags, handmade goodies, and a good movie-night at home with my Hubb. I love working with my hands, vintage/antique finds, and most of all I love helping hurting people.

-What inspired you to open your Etsy shop?

As a stay-at-home mom, I didn't always have the extra money to give to the mission outreaches nearest to my heart. After praying for creative ideas and new ways to produce a little extra income to donate, God gave me the idea for my blog and Etsy shop. 50% of all of my sales goes directly to mission outreaches, such as Hand of Hope and The Mercy House. I've had so much fun with this blogging thing and have met so many wonderful people through it, Allison being one of them!

-How did you come up with the name for your shop, "Just for Love?"

Actually, the name "Just For Love" is something very, very special to me because it came from my mom. When I was in middle school and still living at home, my mom had a dream her and I opened a little boutique together called "Just For Love." We often talked about doing it and how fun it would be, but never got around to actually making it a reality. I lost my mom to cancer back in January of 2009. A little over a year later I finally decided to start my blog and Etsy shop in honor of her. It's a little something I hold close to my heart that makes me still feel connected to her : ).


-What are your favorite materials to use when creating items for your shop?

Oh, just about anything! I love all sorts of pretty fabric, but toile and polka dot are probably two of my favorites. I love to hand-stitch pearls and pretty beads in the center of my accessories. I've seen a lot of handmade flowers out there in blog-land, but I think this makes mine stand out from the rest. I try very hard not to replicate things I see. Every time I sit down to make a new creation even I'm surprised to see what it will turn out like. I just go with the flow!


-What inspires you to create handmade items?

The biggest reason is because I want to help better the lives of suffering people in third-world countries. It breaks my heart to see some of the conditions that these people live in. Secondly, because I just adore making handmade items. It's such a nice, fun, and relaxing way for me to get my girly side out living with 3 boys! I love that I get to put my two passions into one; creating handmade items and helping to raise funds for hurting people. Can it get any better than that?



Isn't she just fabulous?!
