Star Sponsor and Giveaway: Lauren from Elephant's Trunk

Here she is! It's the sweet and lovely Lauren from Elephant's Trunk!

If you don't know her and love her already, I'm happy to introduce you! Lauren has a stellar blog over here, and she sells her awesome wine accessories here. (She is also one of those very genuine people over on Twitter - she talks to you not at you!). Here's a peek:


And here's the skinny on Lauren:

What is your shop all about?

The Elephant’s Trunk is a little bit of handmade wine accessories and a dash of creative canvases. The Elephant’s Trunk has been my way to handle my addiction to creating and I hope that shines through in my products.
What inspires you to create?
Finding inspiration for products comes from everywhere and anywhere, from current events to a unique magazine or an inspirational quote. These are the things that stimulate me to create.
If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a sloth because it would allow me to sleep a lot more than I get to do now. Sloths get to live the life, hanging out in trees and napping all day.
