Summer Fun Giveaway #1 - AnnaVirginia Fashioneering

Are you ready for the Summer? I sure am! From our Etsymom team, we are jump starting summer with some fun giveaways! The first sponsor is AnnaVirginia Fashionnering ( Summer means a lot of fun outdoor activities, but to protect our little ones, a fashionable hat and a pair of cute sandals are a couple of "must haves"! In Anna's etsy shop, you will find great selections of adorable baby hats and sandals. But mom can have some fun too shopping at AnnaVirginia! She also offers beautiful adult hats, sweater and shawl.

Below are some extras that Anna is sharing with us:

Can you share with us more about you and/or your family?

I’m a stay-at-home mom with a 5-month old sweet, baby girl. My hubby has one year left of school, and hopefully he’ll find a great, full-time job. In the meanwhile, we follow him around to his internships and schooling. I love my little family!

What are you creating for your shop right now?

I’m working on some crocheting patterns. I’m on, and I’ve sold a couple there already.

What are some of your favorite summer items in your shop and why do you enjoy making them?

My *favorite* summer item is my Baby Hat and Sandals Set. I made a set for my baby, who loves playing with her toes, and also likes to go for stroller rides without squinting in the sunlight. Another summer item I like is the Pocket Solutions ™ Drawstring Backpack. It’s great for toting along the little necessities! I use mine all the time now!

Do you have any big plan for this summer?

This summer, we are living in Las Vegas for summer number 2 of my hubby’s internship. Other than that, I plan to watch my baby grow like crazy, and I’m going to be making some big projects (re-fitting a wedding dress and making two ballroom dance gowns).

Can you share a tip or two on how to have the most fun in the summer?
My best tip on having fun in the summer is to go swimming (but use a lot of sunscreen!), and watch a lot of movies while being with family and loved ones.

Do you have a blog, facebook page, twitter account or another shop?
