MysticWynd Monday Mania Featuring a Giveaway from TiLT Creations

It's Monday and that means the beginning of a new giveaway period! This week's giveaway - this wonderful 3 Leaf Zip Clutch - comes to you courtesy of TiLTCreations on Etsy. This clutch has a retail value of $25 and is TiLTCreations' newest (soon to be released) offering. In lovely autumn colors (shown here in bright sunlight as well as indoor lighting), this zippered clutch measures 7 1/2"w x 6"h with a 5" loop strap and three 3" felt leaves. Theresa, the owner of TiLTCreations is a busy stay at home mom of two boys and very involved in successfully promoting her beautiful handmade bags and accessories through a variety of networking venues.

She has shops on both Etsy and Artfire
http://tiltcreations.etsy.com/ and

She also manages to find time to devote to being a proud member of the etsybloggers, micetsy, etsymoms, Carried Away Bag team and team BDC (Big Damn Crafters) on Etsy.

I thought it would be great for you to get to know a little bit more about Theresa, her life and her business, so I asked her a few questions. These are her responses!

Share a little about how you came up with your shop name - TiLTcreations. I knew I wanted something that could be used for more than just my bags...just in case. My shop name came from my initials...TLT. Whenever I sign them, it looks like it needs an "i" in there...so I used that for my shop :)

Name one thing that not many people know about you. I have 5 tattoos.

Who would you want to play you if they wrote a movie about your life? Jennifer Garner...because then I could see my life if I were pretty, funny & able to kick a$& :)

You have a birthday coming up in October - on that note, what is the best birthday present you've ever received? My sewing machine. Easy. Next question :)

Your shop bio mentions that you've enjoyed art ever since your first Crayola - If you could be a crayon, what color would you be? Chartreuse...because then I would be my youngest son's favorite color.

What's the most unusual request you've ever gotten for a custom item? Does my son asking for a purple blob monster count? LOL But really, the actual item was not unusual, but the wording was..."a pretty bag like that one [I was wearing it] but make it a man bag, so have it go Grrr" - and pink is ok"

Thanks to Theresa for sharing a little bit about herself! Alrighty - so you're asking... how do you win that beautiful clutch?

I'd say my favorite is the Handbag in Brown and Pink Blooms. It just makes me happy!

I usually do zippered closures, but something inside of me is saying "snap." Maybe I'm ready to try something new....or I'm just ready to snap!

Going to check out her blog now!

I really like the Painted Tree Tan Mini Duffle Bag - it's an unusual shape (in a very good way) and really lends it some originality!

Emily said...

I tend to prefer zippered closures - it just feels like my stuff is more secured that way. But even so, different bags lend themselves to different closure styles!

Mireille said...

My favorite would have to be Lime Pink Paisley Metal Frame Clutch, I love the fabric the print and the fact that is a clutch

Mireille said...

Oh and I prefer zipper or snap closures... not so sure about open bags unless they are really big and I'm sure my items won't fall...

Lilly said...

I love the Clutch in Tan Scrolls. Great fabric and it closes with a magnetic snap. Beautiful!
Thanks a lot.

lol! What a weird request she got!

I'd prefer a zippered bag.

My favorite item in her shop is the "Painted Tree Tan Mini Duffle Bag"- it's so unique looking (but pretty!), and I love that tree!

I don't even have to look at her shop - my fav is her buffy with Mr. Pointy messenger bag!

Splendid Little Stars said...

I like everything! But let's see....I like her clutches in general such as the green floral, but for the sake of this post I'll choose this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26990297

Splendid Little Stars said...

If the bag is small, I prefer a zippered closure. If it's large a snap closure is fine.

I have always admired this Janet Handbag in Pink Skull and Crossbones from her shop! Pink and skulls...what more could a girl want :)

I prefer snaps...they allow for more room than a zipper, but still provide some security.

I very much like the Lime Pink Paisley Metal Frame Clutch because of the beautiful pattern. It reminds me of one of my grandma's classical purses.

My favorite is Mollie Clutch in Green Skulls - lovely colors

Wanda said...

My favourite item is the Wristlet with Bracelet in Olive Mock Reptile at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18909240 - I love the wood bracelet that is attached to the strap. It make the wristlet look unique.

I like the Clutch in Purple Paisley Silver Frosted. The fabric is a beautiful print and I love the color. The shape is also really cute - I like how it's curved (rather than boxy) and the pleating gives it that something.

squareby said...

I definitely prefer zipper closures. I've dropped way too many purses with snap closures that snap open ... spilling everything.

Linda K said...

I like the blue suede dot purse

I like the Zip Pouch Black Swirl with Silvery Rings.
It is a black cotton zippered pouch with a swirl print.

Thanks for the awesome giveaway! It puts me right in the mood for Autumn. I went to your shop and fell in love with the JANET handbag in PINK SKULL & CROSSBONES. My teenage daughter would love to tote that purse, for sure!!!

I prefer zippered closure bags because sometimes I carry expensive items that I need to keep safe.

My family just loves spicy food and I have managed to grow some chili peppers in my garden - so I just LOVE this bag:
Large Tote in Chili Peppers and Orange with Hand Painting

The orange is amazing!! Just don't find enough orange items anywhere.

Gotta love TiLT! A fine bagmaker, and a much better blogger than I'll ever be! Go TiLT go!

Also, I love her Mollie Clutch in Green Skulls- it looks so innocent, until someone really studies the fabric. And the color is perfect!:D

Carapace said...

My favorite bag closure is actually drawstring! I like being able to cinch it around, say, a roll of paper without crushing it.

But after that, zippers!
