GIVEAWAY WEEK (and Friday Finds)- Featuring joom

Thank goodness it’s Friday right? We’ve had a busy week, full of fun.  I am so happy about this 5th giveaway, and it’s a Friday Finds.  :)

Today I get to feature a shop I found on etsy, called joom.

 Joom has such an awesome collection in her shop. You can find pillows, cards, tote bags, prints and wall art.  A few of my favorite things are
joom pillow 1
joom pillow 2
joom canvas
joom tote

I asked Joom a few questions so you all could get to know her a bit better and see why her shop is so great.

Joom started her Etsy shop in May 2006.  She got a lot of support from her husband, her dad and friends. She said they gave her a lot of ideas on how to reach her goals.  Joom was inspired by designer Lotta Jansdotter. She said, “I like her style, clean and simple designs. Her work inspired me to start my own line.”  Joom loves working with all kinds of fabrics and continually finds inspiration in nature, music, art, and architecture. She gets inspiration from the world around her,  and  loves to go shopping and do gardening, both of which help her create new items for her shop.  I asked Joom what has been the hardest part about being a handmade shop owner, and she answered honestly, “Improving my design to stay relevant and also staying true to myself.”
(I love when an artist or designer feels good about being themselves and what they have to offer.)

Along with her Etsy shop, joom, you can also connect with her on her website http://www.joomk.com/, or on her
Facebook page.

Joom has generously offered this giveaway’s winner their choice of an
Apricot Peach Cardinal Throw Pillow

OR
Dark Brown Bird on Cherry Blossom Case

Sigh, I want both!  My iPhone needs a sweet cozy case, and I am sure my couch would look much improved if I had some cool throw pillows.

The prints are wonderful. I like the brown print on off white cotton hummingbird with eucalyptus rectangle pillow. It would be too hard to choose which prize. All of the items are wonderful.
