Skulls, polka dots, animal print… if you’re not shivering in anticipation for this week’s giveaway, then I don’t know what to tell you…
This round of the WhatTheCraft Giveaway is sponsored by Thera of Swagger Savvy Designs, who will be giving the lucky winner a creepy cute matching purse, hair clip, and bow set!
Swagger Savvy Designs specializes in providing accoutrement for the pirate in you.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a LOT of pirate in me, so Thera’s designs are right up my alley! Or should I say, galley? Sorry… I can’t resist piratey puns.
The winner of this giveaway will receive:
Rock n Roll Skulls and Glitter Green Ruffle Purse
Skully Hand Barrette with Neon Green Zebra Bow
Pirate Hair Bow
Valued at a total of $45!
Let’s take a peek inside the mind of Thera, captain of the pirate ship that is Swagger Savvy Designs!
How long have you been running Swagger Savvy Designs?
I’ve been sewing for most of my life, but I started Swagger Savvy Designs in 2008. Most of my items are statement pieces. When I dress for the day I usually wear a pretty plain outfit, but I love to make it stand out by wearing one-of-a-kind accessories. From this concept, Swagger Savvy Designs was born. I try to make each piece one-of-a-kind so you’ll never have to worry about running into someone else wearing the same hair bow or using the same purse.
Is it a full-time or part-time endeavor?
Is 3/4 time endeavor an option?? I work full-time as a hair stylist, but I spend about 3/4 of the rest of my time thinking about and making cute stuff for my shop. I would really love to turn Swagger Savvy Designs into a full-time endeavor someday. I really adore sewing and crafting things and it would be the ‘cherry on top’ for my life to be able to do it full time.
Where do you find inspiration?
In general, as a person, I’m a huge mish mash of things. I draw inspiration from within myself. I don’t ever want to replicate something that someone else has done. I want people to be able to look at my items and say, “that’s so Thera.”
What is your favorite item you’ve ever made?
This zombie purse is my absolute favorite item that I’ve ever made.
You can get your own fully customizable Zombie purse here.
If you had a million dollars, what’s the first handmade item you’d buy?
I would finally buy a custom gemstone coffin ring from Idle Hands Designs. I’m in love with these unique rings! I love the coffin shape.
What is your favorite breakfast cereal?
My favorite breakfast cereal is Quaker Oatmeal Squares. YUM!
