Giveaway 30 Days - Washer Earrings and Gift Card

Day 27's Giveaway is a Pair of Washer Earrings PLUS $5 Gift Certificate from Industrie

Available in two colors, Silver or Gold. You can choose!

Here is a bit about Kara and her art practice:

1) How does your art practice fit in to your life?
I have been creating things as long as I can remember. When I was in high school I used to color on anything I could find, embellish my clothes, and write poetry. Once I graduated I was so busy I sort of lost that creative energy. It wasn’t until I lost my job that I started to do crafts again and once I started jewelry it was a whole new experience. I found something I love to do. I swear sometimes I dream of metal! 

"Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can!" — Danny Kaye
2) Do you have any specific goals for your Etsy site or art practice? 
My short term goal for my Etsy would be to make it to the front page! My long term goal in general is to make this my primary business. I have put so much into it and already got so much happiness out of it that I would love to be able to do this as a full time job while I go back to school. 

3) What would be your super power if you could have one?
I have always wished I could sing, and to me being able to sing is a super power. I would love to just break out in song at any given moment!

4) Recommend a good book and movie. 
I recommend the book The Little White Trip By Peter Joseph Gallagher. He is an aspiring author from California. Check it out here. 

A good movie I would recommend is the movie Push. I started thinking about this movie when I answered the superhero question. 

5) Where do you live in the world? What do you like most about it? 
I live in beautiful Washington State. I grew up in Renton which is about a 20 min drive to Seattle. This last year I moved south an hour to a small town called Orting, WA. Orting is located approximately 30 miles from Mt Rainier with a population of 6,075. I love living out in the country but being able to take a drive into the city.
