{discount + giveaway!} seek first

this giveaway is now CLOSED.
thanks to everyone who entered!

I met Lauren recently through blogging, and today I'm excited to share her shop & more about her. She also wants to give something to one of you, so keep reading!


{ shop } { blog }


Hello!  My name is Lauren Battershell, and I am a lover and follower
of Jesus. I am also crafty DIY thrift-a-holic, wife, blogger, and
cancer researcher. I love crafting and sharing my adventures along the
way on my blog...where you can see my perspective on life, faith,
love, marriage, and crafts. I married my best friend last December,
and am so honored to call him my husband!


I started crafting as a creative outlet from research (I love science,
but a girl needs some frills), and my shop has come out of the
abundance of my love to craft. It is now my way to fund raise for
going back to school.


What are three words that describe you?
blessed, given much grace (that's really 3
but I'm going to count it as one! =)), and happy!

How do you find inspiration?
my inspiration for work in my shop comes from the beauty of creation.
I love sipping coffee sitting outside, and many of the colors I choose
come from the original creator.


my favorite item in my shop is the yellow and white gingham headband.  It reminds
me of childhood days of playing by the beach, careless and free.


Lauren sent me a sweet purple headband...

{sorry, it's a little hard to see...}
...and I really enjoyed wearing it!
My sisters even complimented me on it, which is a big deal. ;)
It is larger than the headbands I usually wear,
but once I put it on, I really didn't notice it.
Thanks, Lauren!
