12 days of Christmas Giveaway...Day Five!

Welcome to day Five!!!!!

Today meet Dana! Yep another Dana, and another amazingly talented sweet lady! Dana is the creative sweetheart behind TUTU MONKEY Where you can find adorable Tutu and cute clippies for the princesses in your life :O)

Tell us a bit about yourself.

This is my 3rd year being a Mom.....and I love it! Sarah is such a joy to be with and I am cherishing my time with her.( I mean most of the time ...be real she is 3 and has her moments) My husband and I tried for many years to have her so I am soaking it all in before she goes to school. My husband is in the Navy and will be leaving on his first deployment since we have been together. It is going to be strange to have him gone for 6 months and I am not looking forward to the "I miss my Daddy" tears that I know we are going to have around here.

How did you get started creating?

I think I have always been creating. My Grandpa , Tom, was a tinker....inventor so I think a little of his spirit is in me . Also, my Grandma Irene, was always sewing a new outfit , knitting a sweater or working in her garden and all these activities influenced me . I think of them often and wish they were around to make things with me.

What are your favorite materials to work with?
Fabric, beads, yarn and paper....ah you name it ...it's all fun

Where do you sell?
The Attic in Coronado, ETSY, Craft shows and fundraisers.

Share a favorite Christmas memory.

I added a new one last year. Sarah was 2 1/2 years old last Christmas and she loved the Coronado Christmas Tree lighting and Parade. Seeing her have a conversation with Santa was so sweet......"he is a nice guy Mama"....."I like him now". Experiencing Christmas with my daughter and my sister's children was so fun last year . I know we are in store for many more wonderful Christmas memories.

Day Five's Goodie for the grand prize is an adorable You design it Tutu. There is some little girl in your life that would LOVE to dance around Christmas morning in one of these amazing tutus. Dana designed one for our Meggie and her quality and attention to detail on them is superb!





Today's daily Prize is a BIG BIG one!!!! This is one of the most popular items in my SHOP
I love making them! One lucky winner today will get the Faith Hope and Love bangle Trio!
