a handmade holiday: pink lemonade

Hello Take Heart readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today! My name is Paige, and I am the owner and designer at Pink Lemonade. I started Pink Lemonade in March of 2010, after my sister showed me the amazing online community of crafters, that I had no idea existed! I had been crafting for years, and was thrilled, to say the least, to find out that I could sell my handmade creations online, and {gasp!} possibly make a living doing it! Now, two years and thousands of accessories later, Pink Lemonade is my full time job! 

Did I mention that I am 16? Well, I am. I am also homeschooled, which provides me with a flexible schedule, and extra time to work on creating, filling orders, and managing my shop. My job is far different from the average teenager's job, but I love it! I love browsing through online, in magazines, and my favorite local shops to gather inspiration for my pieces. Inspiration is everywhere! I especially love fall and winter. The weather, the colors, and the amazing scents (pumpkin and cinnamon are my favorites!) get me in the mood for creating! I gathered much of the inspiration for my latest collection of accessories from the outdoors. The changing leaves, the crisp breeze... I wanted to channel those warm feelings into the colors and styles of my accessories.


 I love a good deal, and I know that you guys do too, so I do my best to keep my prices affordable! Items in my shop range from $6-$28, and today... Take Heart readers will receive 30% off of that! Just enter code "TAKEHEART" at checkout to receive the discount. If you haven't started your Christmas shopping yet, now is a GREAT time to do it!!

Thanks for having me, Danielle!
