Our third and final Sponsor Love + Giveaway this week comes from the amazing My Girl Thursday!  I don’t know how this girl does it, but she does it all!  She has an amazing etsy shop full of items with the prettiest fabrics you ever did see.  And she blogs about new projects, creative goals, second-hand scores, Etsy obsessions, DIYs and totally rad outfits of hers.  Seriously, you should probably add her to your daily reads list or your blogroll right now, b/c I said so, k?  You can thank me later.  Well you know the drill by now, read on to get to know Thursday a little bit better and then go ahead and enter yourself in a beautiful apron giveaway!  ๐Ÿ™‚

{MEET THURSDAY}

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you decided to open up shop?
Hello friend!  My name is Thursday. On any given day you can find me jotting notes on scrap paper, rolling around on the floor with my kid, scoring fabulous things at The Salvation Army and loving up my handsome partner Jesse.  I live a very blessed life and I try to celebrate it every day.  I blog over at MyGirlThursday.com about these things and more with fibre-like regularity.  If you like your bloggers a little bit on the quirky side,well, you should come say hello so we can be pals.

I’ve had a little Etsy shop open for just over three years.  At the moment I’m keeping my handmade business as a more casual gig.  I sew up a little something when I’m feeling inspired and forget the fuss when I’m not into it.  I realize that this may seem crazy to some, but it’s keep me happy and allows me to focus my creative energy on projects that benefit myself and my family (yup, we need curtains too!).  When I do a shop update you’ll usually find a tote bag or two, some pretty aprons and vintage fabrics printed with my own illustrations.

2) Who is your favorite fabric designer?
I actually don’t have one.  I plead total ignorance on all counts!  I buy almost all of my fabric at thrift and more often than not my materials are repurposed from bedding of clothing items.  Not only does it keep my creative costs down but it also keeps tonnes and tonnes of waste from landfills.

3) I love all your style posts on your blog, where are your favorite places to shop?
This will sound redundant, but thrift shops and vintage shops are my favourite places to buy clothing.  It’s rare that I’ll buy something new at a retail shop.  Although, if I had lots of money I might just run amok through the Joe Fresh section of my grocery store.  Ohhh, clothing shopping at the grocer – there’s something I swore I would never do.

I’ve been on a huge shoe buying binge recently too. Since my feet are on the larger side of the scale I have a hard time find great pieces at the op-shop. eBay and Etsy have been my favourite hunting ground for affordable and interesting footwear.

4) What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate mint.  Big time!  In fact, I think I have some in the freezer right now.
