Who Says Stripes don't go with Flowers???

Isn't it sweet? This darling striped flower pendant is this week's giveaway and comes to you from Katrina Palmieri of glasscube on Etsy. She is a 25 year old Process Engineer with a creative side who loves glass art and finally has found her creative niche in it! This great little piece retails for $9.25 and can be yours if you're the lucky winner of this weeks giveaway! Let's find out a little more about Katrina before I tell you how you can win!!

Here are her responses to my interview questions!

Tell us a little bit about when and you decided to open your shop - Glass Cube - on Etsy. I had been interested in picking up this craft for awhile. What really got me going was actually kind of funny! On July 4th I was roller blading and fell and broke my tailbone. I had to be home on short term disability from work, and I was going out of my mind with nothing to do. So, I ordered my supplies and got started! I was up and running on Etsy by August 9th!

In your "other life", you have a technical and analytical career. Many people in similar situations use creative outlets as a way of relaxing and getting away from the rat race. What does crafting accomplish for you? In my "other life" I am a process engineer. I spend most of my time analyzing data and figuring out technical problems. Crafting is a great release for me! I am very creative and love doing artsy things. Having this business/hobby has been wonderful to incorporate that into my life.

Tell us one thing that not many people know about you. I actually used to work at an auto body shop! I owned a 64 Ford stepside truck and was working to rebuild it. It was very hard, but I had a great time! Wonderful learning experience :)

What would we be most likely to find on your nightstand or coffee table? Great question! Well it usually stays the same:
Chapstick
An empty water glass (or two)
Alarm clock
and my favorite - right now I am reading Book 7 of the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris! Great books :)

If you could learn another craft, what would you love to learn? I am dying to learn how to make blown glass vases! I just haven't had the time or money to invest into this yet, but I would LOVE to learn how to do this!

What's on your Ipod/playlist? Country, country, and more country! I love Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Billy Currington, and more! I also have good 90's rock: Sister hazel, third eye blind, and some matchbox 20!

Thanks to Katrina (especially for allowing me to bump her giveaway up a week on such short notice!)
