artsy aut {giveaway!}

I love handmade.
I love the products, the creativity, the people behind the shops.
And I love featuring those people on The Sweetest Petunia.
So here's another great shop, and a giveaway for you!

{ artsy aut }


I've never met Autumn {the dreamer/designer behind artsy aut} in real life,
but don't you love when you can tell someone is super sweet just from their emails? ;)

I'll let Autumn tell you more about herself...


 I currently live in a super small town in Hawaii (there isn't even a stoplight here!) and I love it! I have two darling boys, ages 4 and almost 2 and a Tom Cruise look alike husband. I'm a part time civil servant that moonlights as a crafter. Anything do-it-yourself is right up my ally! I started my Etsy shop as a way to share my designs spread a little color. Anything colorful, bright, happy, yellow, or polka dot, I love. Add pendants and chevrons and I'm hooked. I also love cooking and baking. I love to eat! So consequently, I'm also a runner ;)


3 words to describe yourself?
blessed, inventive, and just plain happy. 

What inspires you? 
 I'm so lucky to live in Hawaii. My surroundings inspire me all the time!  I have a beautiful flowers in my yard, a gorgeous mountain in my view and the ocean just around the bend. But my biggest inspiration comes from my friends. I'm so blessed with creative types in my life! Thank goodness for blogs and Facebook and email that keeps me connected to them! 


Autumn was kind enough to send me a set of hair pins, too...


These hair pins are great quality, sturdy, and just plain adorable!
The pop of pink was a great touch for my outfit, and the
pricing on these bobbies is very reasonable. Love them!

I too have been able to spend time with Autumn when we both lived in Arlington. She and her husband are very kind and generous people. They gave us rides when we didn't have a car. And as you can see her artistic ability is amazing.
