{s.d.g.} + a giveaway!

S.D.G. {short for Spire Design Group} is a place where you'll find uniquely crafted gifts and accessories. And I have to say, I think it's a pretty cool place to be!

If you stop by, you'll find a fun selection of zipper pouches, clutchs, phone/camera pouches, eyeglass cases, even coffee koozies!

S.D.G. is run by Meredith, and I asked he to share a little about herself:

About me?? I grew up in a small town in Indiana. I am an only child and very close with my family. I married the love of my life that I met by chance on New Years Eve in 2000. He was in the Air Force for 5 years and that allowed us to move around and live in some really great places. After he got out of the military, we moved back close to home and love it!! We have the sweetest dog ever named Oliver (who is also my assistant). And we are hoping to have babies VERY soon!!!! VERY SOON!!! I love interior design, reading, drawing, sewing, making jewelry, singing, dancing, being with my family and friends, shopping, cooking, baking, watching movies, reality tv, laughing and making others laugh. I'm pretty deep!! HEHHE!!!

{Isn't she too cute?!}

I learned to sew when I was about 9. I was in 4-H and I took sewing. I made this super cute elastic waist skirt. After that, I rarely sewed, attempted to make doll clothes and random "cozies" as I called them. They were basically two peices of fabric sewn together and I would put them over something, like a toaster!

I got a sewing machine 3 years ago for Christmas to make curtains and random things for our house. I made one set of curtains and never used it again until last fall. I started sewing pillows, which turned into bags. It was really a way for me to pass time while my design business was slow during the holidays. I would sew all day and never even look at a clock, it just relaxed me so much and I loved what I was doing. My husband suggested that I try and sell them on the internet. I thought he was a little crazy, but was willing to give it a try. And that is how it started! I call my second business SDG (short for Spire Design Group). I have sewn over 170 items since I started it. I am currently selling from my website as well as doing craft shows in Indiana. I love it! It is a great way for me to be creative, a perfect second job.

All of Meredith's items are just adorable, and I think her prices are good.
