{Day 1} Share the JOY Giveaway – Gussy Gives!

by Donna on November 22, 2010

Welcome to

Share the JOY! Christmas Showcase and Giveaway Week

here at Another New Season. I’m  excited to share with you some of my favorite things and share the joy by hosting some sweet giveaways for you All.Week.Long!

If you are reading via email or in a reader, please click through to the post to enter.

Today – We’ve got Gussy!

Gussy (aka Maggie, but come on… you’re gonna call her Gussy, you just have to!) is one talented girl!

I thought I loved ruffles before and then I saw these beauties and fell even more in love:

You’ve got to meet Gussy!

Gussy is a girl who’s footsteps I would love to follow in.

 

I love her honesty: (taken from her site):

“I had zero experience when I started {is that OK to admit out loud?!}, but I had a determined spirit and a big heart for the trade.”

“If you are considering learning how to sew but don’t know where to start, my advice to you is this: JUST START! Go to the library, checkout a ton of books, read over the basics and JUST DO IT! What can it hurt? Are you afraid you’re going to succeed?

Every minute you doubt yourself is a minute you can’t ever get back.”

I could go on all day because I really admire Maggie for her drive and following after her passion. I hope to one day have a story like her’s. On a side note; I’d hate to admit how darn YOUNG she is and she’s already got one important part of life figured out early, follow your passion!

I recently purchased on of her small zippered pouches in hopes that I will one day soon be putting a new IPhone inside. When I got it in the mail I was so pleasantly surprised that it was the perfect fit for my Flip (my new love, video camera love). I also thought the pouch would be perfect for holding all of those Loyalty cards, gift certificates, some cash and keys for a quick trip out. It’s truly lovely; great quality, pretty ruffles, soft and beautiful. If you happen to have picked my name for this year’s Christmas exchange (you know who you are) I’d really really, really love one of these under the tree this year, or these, these or this.

Thanks to Gussy one of you will win a $30 shop credit to her shop.
