sew ewe-nique designs {review & giveaway!}

this giveaway is now CLOSED!
Congrats to Vicki S!
{winner has been emailed}


Happy Monday, everyone...
I'm excited to be sharing a sweet shop with you today!

Kelly is the designer behind sew ewe-nique, and her shop is full
of cute little accessories to dress up your outfits.

cute button earrings...

fun headbands...

even cute clutches!

I asked Kelly to tell me a little about herself...
Well, I am a 25 year old dreamer and creator. I have always loved art and coming up with new ideas. Crafting has always been in my family, my Mom, Grandmother, all the way to my Great-Grandmother, so I would say I have the genes for it. I live with my fiance Tom and two adorable kitties Hamlet and Nanaki in Northern Lower Michigan. I decided to start my own shop when I needed a creative outlet from work. I started to knit last fall and fell in love with it. I then got a sewing machine for Christmas (from Tom) and went to town! But what I love most about starting my own shop is being able to then support other shops. {Yes, I love this!} I try to put my 'sale' money towards purchases that will also support other small shop owners. I appreciate those who buy handmade and try to do the same.

...and what inspires her!
Life, nature and fashion. I say life because, I have found that my style has changed with the seasons. I am huge into earrings, and sewing items right now, come fall I will pick up knitting again. Nature because of the area that we live in. Though there is a semi-medium size town around us, N. Michigan is covered in nature, so what better to inspire a person than what surrounds me. And fashion which has always inspired me. I try to be thrifty, and when certain styles cost more than what I would pay for something that is mass-marketed, I try to recreate them myself. There is nothing better than hearing “where did you get that?” and answering “I made it!”

Kelly sent me this adorable headband, and I love it! 
I wore it this week, and it was a nice little piece to dress up my hair.
I love the covered button, it's well made, and the fabric is so sweet. :)
{Thanks so much, Kelly!}
