Day two of the 12 days of Christmas giveaway

Day Two of the 12 Days of Christmas giveaway!

Today meet Liz of Tiny Pumpkin!



Liz is the creative mind and painter behind Tiny Pumpkin









Tell us a bit about you!

I am a single momma to a growing 3 year old who is always hungry. I love painting, crafting, sewing and making anything for my daughter. My favorite past time is spending time with my family and am the only child of 4 who is actually able (and willing) to work full time for my parent's business. I love anything pumpkin and peppermint, but not necessarily together. I paint piggies at night, after the kid is tucked in, and love when customers allow me to use my imagination when painting up a new design.

How did you get started crafting?
I started crafting with my mom and my sisters. My mom has always been creative and we each got a little of her talent in all different areas. When my daughter was born I began making anything and everything, especially for her. I have had tons of craft fails (some I would never admit to!) but do my best to learn my lesson and try again.


What is your favorite medium to work with?
I love fabric. I know it has nothing to do with painting piggies, but it's an obsession of which the piggy bank sales help support!


What is your biggest goal for 2011
Time Management. I am always late (thanks mom!) and rushing to get out of the house for anything. I want to focus on not over booking myself and making sure I leave a little room to breath.


Share a favorite Christmas memory.

This Christmas memory is more of a tradition that creates new memories every year. My mom has always bought everyone in the family underwear for Christmas. Well, several years ago she got tired of wrapping so when we woke up Christmas morning, the underwear were all hanging from the tree. Ever since it is the most exciting part of Christmas morning! We all open our gifts and after it's my mom's turn to pass out the new undies... embarrassing at least one person each year with her creative finds!








Liz has most kindly offered day 2's winner a custom Piggy Bank! Oh the possibilities!


I have seen her work in person and it's just lovely!

She is working on a super Mario Bros piggy bank for one of my boys :) I know it will be a hit this Christmas.

Day 2's winner will receive from me this lovely serene Gem stone necklace.
They aren't available in my shop now but will be up on Monday.
Starting Monday I will take all my custom listings down, and list only ready to ship jewelry, for those of you looking to receive something quickly, or something simple to use a stocking stuffer!
