Fabric Friday {BabesNBlanks & Giveaway}

 This giveaway is now closed.
I know you all have been waiting ever so patiently for two weeks now. :)  Thank you for coming back.  This week's giveaway is from the Etsy shop BabesNBlanks.  Wendy stocks her shop with over 500 items to choose from!  The shop carries some favorite brands of mine like Amy Butler, Ty Pennington, and Michael Miller.  You have a chance to win a yard of fabric, your choice, AND 20% off any additional yardage you want.  I have to say that's a pretty sweet deal considering you get 20% off your order plus one yard of free fabric.  You can mix and match prints, or you can get a lot of one fabric for that big project of yours.  As usual, I like to get to know shops a little better by asking questions, so read on and enter for a chance to win!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am employed full time as well as run this business full time.

I have 1 child who is in middle school and everyone here helps with the business.

Whether you are cutting material, printing labels, going to the post office, etc.

I LOVE putting new fabrics together with colors and designs. 

I love the challenge of putting together a custom order to help customers end with their desired result.



Are there any challenges you had to overcome?
One of my biggest challenges overcoming this was waiting for product to arrive as well as figuring out all of the different websites, etc to advertise on. 



Where does your inspiration come from?
I think that my biggest inspiration is Ty Pennington.  It's amazing what he is able to do and help families out as well as do something amazing for them.  I want my customers to have that same inspiration in their creations and putting something together for the first time.  


Whose studio would you raid?
I think that if I could raid someone's studio/workplace, I would have to say it would be his as well.  He has come up with some amazing textures, patters and colors.



What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family.  We love to go bowling or watch movies.  Just as long as we can be together.  I also love to read.  Some of my favorite authors are James Patterson and Mary Higgins Clark.  I especially love those cold winter nights that you can cuddle up by a fireplace with a good book.



What is success to you?
Success to me is having my customers happy.  Once I have been able to find that particular pattern or package to put together makes me very happy.  I always love a challenge and love it when I am able to assist in their success.



Where would you like to be in the next decade?
In the next decade, I would love to have a huge studio with hundreds and hundreds of patterns to choose from.  I would especially love to travel the world and look for new and exciting fabrics.




Here are a few of my favorite prints and fabric bundles.
