12 days of Christmas Giveaway...Day two!

Welcome to Day Two!!
Today Meet Rita of Mammabellarte.

Rita is a sweetheart with such a wonderful artistic flare and the most mesmerizing Italian accent. Tell us a bit about you.

Mamma of 2 boys Alan and Raffaele, bellissimo husband Deano, 4 dogs, 14 hens, 1 rooster and 13 fish. I was born in the beautiful island of Sicilia, Santa Croce Camerina and my full name, are you ready? "Rita Angela Maria Suizzo" Moved in the USA because amore=love 17years ago. I love to create with wood and the latest addiction is soldering. I teach soldering twice a week, I am in heaven

How did you get started Creating?

- I started when I came in the States and not knowing the language very well, my father in law gave me is jigsaw and I started working with wood. The soldering came a couple of years later and actually was my son that wanted a soldering iron for Christmas, I started using it.

What is your favorite Material to work with?

- I don't have one favorite material, I have few. If I have to choose is solder.

where do you sell?

- I sell a La Maison Rustique, fundraisers, mammabellarte.blogspot and etsy.

Share a favorite Christmas memory

- My favorite memory about Christmas. Going back to Sicily and dressing as Santa, scaring my nephew ( 6years old),he knew that Santa only brought gift to good boys and he was a terrible one,(seriously) he set quietly on the chair, his arms folded looking down. Everybody got their gifts and I turned towards him and said his name. Oh the look on his face, priceless!


Today's Goodie for the grand prize is this adorable Vintage flare necklace. She has taken a little bottle, filled it with glitter, what girl doesn't love glitter! There is a little bead and a tiny vintage letter. It is accompanied by a vintage Key and hangs on a beaded chain. Isn't is too cute!

Today's daily Prize is this lip balm. I just couldn't resist when I saw the name of it, are you ready....Pumpkin Butt lip balm. Too funny!

It fits in with Rita's love of Vintage because it as a picture from a vintage Halloween card on it.You can find more vintage adorned lip balms with cute names here at VintageBella

Perfect stocking stuffers!

Update on daily Prize!!!! So apparently I'm an impulsive shopper and I don't read the fine print or large in your face print. I just headed back over to vintagebella to read more on the Pumpkin Butt lip balm. Head over to her store to read it your self her explanation on it is funny!

That said it seems the lip balm was a mishap and doesn't smell too good. So I added in the Cherry Frosting Lip balm to the daily prize in case the pumpkin butt is too offensive you can still enjoy the Cherry Frosting!

I love this interview with my sweet Rita. I count her as a dear friend and is one of the first friends I made when I started blogging. She inspires me to think outside my box. I mean this girl is not afraid of power tools, so that really impresses me...and then the things she can create with them are amazing. It was so fun to her about how she came here to the US.
I would love to enter your giveaway.
Hugs,
June
