Star Sponsor and Giveaway: Craftee McGee *CLOSED*



It's my great pleasure to introduce you to Jacqui from Craftee McGee! Jacqui is super talented and sells delightful jewelry in her shop! Take a peek at some of her lovely creations:


1. What made you decide to open a shop, and how did you decide on your shop name?

I decided to open a shop because Brandon told me that I couldn't buy any more craft supplies unless I could start making money on the things I made! I was spending all my free time making things for myself & our home & for gifts and spending all our free pennies to do it! We didn't have a lot of extra money so that was motivation enough to set up shop! I didn't want a shop name that boxed me in to one type of product, since I make so many different things. Friends had started calling me  Crafty McGee. Someone on etsy already had that name so I changed the y to double ee's and here we are!


2. What is your favorite thing to make / what supplies to do you love to use most?

Everything? I really do like making all kinds of things. Currently, though it's not apparent in my shop, I am loving yarn & crocheting. Something about winter makes me want to curl up with a ball of yarn and make something cozy.


For the shop, my favorite thing to make are the fabric flowers that turn into necklaces, earrings & headbands. The fabric comes from all over & the center of each flower is made up of bits from broken vintage jewelry! The necklaces include broken brooches & earrings. So fun to give new life to old pieces that once meant something to someone!


3. What do you spend too much money on?

Craft supplies :) I would fill a house with more supplies than I could ever use! Also shoes, candles that smell like the forest, and books!


4. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Dark chocolate. Probably around 70% cocoa. All day, every day!


5. What is your favorite thing about winter?

I love everything about winter! I don't do very well in heat {fainting & such...it's not pretty} so I love that I can be active outside during the winter! All outdoor winter sports make me happy: cross country skiing, ice skating, hockey, snowshoeing and broomball! I also love the beauty of a snow covered landscape. Love winter!
