ThePeachTree GIVEAWAY!!!

* THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED:)*
yep yep, it's GIVEAWAY time again!!!!
so thrilled to have my dear friend Amy of ThePeachTree here this week.
i love her shop, i love her personality, i love her to pieces.
so let's dive right in and get to know about her....
1. please tell us about your shop. when did you first open your shop and what made you choose to sell on etsy?

Opening my shop on Etsy starting January of 2008 was probably the only New Years Resolution I've stuck with for more than 2 weeks let alone over 2 years! Three months prior, I ran into a gal on a flight returning from San Fransisco to NYC who had this intense fire and passion for everything etsy. I took her card and, to be totally honest, let it fall into my giant pile of 'to check into'. I eventually came across it again just before the end of the year, felt the excitement of our conversation, became an avid buyer, caught the creation bug and the rest is DIY history :)
2. do you sell on etsy full or part time?

That's a tricky questions. I'd say yes, full-time. We have another business that my boyfriend and I run together but as of late, he's greatly taken over that venture allowing me to delve fully into my jewelry.

3. what's your favorite part about running thePeachTree?

You :) And by you, I mean the ever giving, inspiration, compassionate community that is Etsy. The people. The comradery. Our little virtual office.
4. what are some of your favorite things/hobbies?

I'm an avid reader. I love anything that could be considered a classic. I just picked up Tropic of Cancer and man alive are the first 10 pages strangely intriguing :) I also love nature and music and watching my felines make ridiculous fools of themselves. Oh, and TV on video.

5. what are 2 of your favorite items in your shop?
1. This is my new favorite. It was a custom order that I couldn't resist putting into the shop:NEW Purple Rain - Necklace . Chain . Gemstone
2. And I have my own personal pair of these that see a lot of daylight:
Sol - Earrings . Sterling Silver . Gemstone
