Star Sponsor and Giveaway: Emerging Em *CLOSED*

Do you know the lovely Emily from Emerging Em? Let me introduce you...


Isn't she so classy? She also sells beautiful fashion accessories in her sweet shop! Like this rosette necklace:


Here's the scoop on Emily:


Tell us about your shop. 
My mom asked me when I first started my blog and opened my Etsy shop why I chose the name Emerging Em. I think the name aptly describes the phase of life I'm in right now, as I am not only emerging as a new blogger and crafter, violinist and teacher, but also as a person. I hope the name continues to describe me, as I am always striving to learn and create new things. I'm inspired by fashion and the people around me as well as architecture and nature. I'm also inspired by what I can do - like knitting, tatting, and sewing - and combining those skills in new and creative ways.

What is the easiest thing about running your shop? What is the hardest? 
The easiest is coming up with and making new products! I always have new ideas popping up in my head. The hardest thing is keeping up with everything. Since the shop isn't my full-time job, I sometimes get behind and a little overwhelmed.

What is one thing you wished you had known before you started your shop? 
I wish I hadn't taken so long to actually open my shop! It's a lot of fun!

If you were a piece of candy, what would you be any why?
I would be a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup just because they're my favorite. The new mini Reese's will be the death of me.
