25 Follower Giveaway

Wheeee! 25 28 followers! and a giveaway! Our sponsor is Daisy Chains, which is actually Christina's shop. :)  First off, we're going to do a little interview with Christina so that you can get to know her better!

R & K: How did you get into American Girl dolls?
C: When I was about 6 or 7 we got a catalogue in the mail, and of course I immediately wanted a doll. I had several baby dolls already, but these dolls were completely different! I really wanted Samantha, but I never actually told my parents! I ended up getting a JLY that looks a lot like Samantha the Christmas that I was 7. When I was 10 I bought Kirsten with all of the money that I had. 

R & K: How did you start sewing?
C: I had wanted to learn to sew ever since I was fairly young, but it wasn't until I was 10 that I got the chance. I took classes at an after school 4H program, and then the next year we started a 4H club for sewing. Once I started, I never stopped!

R & K: What got you to sell your doll clothes?
C: I made sundresses for my dolls and then my mom suggested that I sell them at our Farmers Market on Kids Day, a day that kids get a booth for free. I did this 4 different times, and had great success! This year, however, I no longer counted as a kid, so we decided to open an Etsy shop, and it's been awesome!

Thanks Christina! Don't forget to check out her shop, Daisy Chains! Now, onto the giveaway!

Christina made us a fun Hawaiian sundress that comes with a pretty shell necklace!
