weekly giveaway - louloudo:

January 24, 2011

Photobucket
This week's giveaway is from louloudo, a designer based in the UK. Louise has such great style and I just love all her designs. They are so fresh and original. You can see her work and daily life at her blog too. Enter to win a $30 gift certificate from her shop.

Hi! Please tell us a little about yourself and your shop: I'm a graphic designer and maker of thingies who lives in Norwich, in the UK. I love recycling old bits and bobs into nice new jewellery - I'd describe my work as, umm... neutral colours, mixed media, obsessed with stags and chain?

How did you get started with your lovely products: I’d been making jewellery for myself for a while, until one day it dawned on me that I had far too much, I only have one neck after all, and I would have to either sell stuff or stop making it. I booked a table at an amazing local craft fair and here I am!

Any advice for small or aspiring business owners? I know that everyone always says ‘just be true to yourself’, but if you just make original products that you would buy yourself and have fun while you do it, you’ll go far. People can tell when you’re having a great time doing what you do, and they can also tell when you’re just copying stuff you’ve seen!


3 chances to win!
