Flutterbudget Interview & Giveaway

There are few better ways to start the day than with a jewelry giveaway! Seattle UCU vendor Flutterbudget has taken the time to say hi and answers our questions as well as put up for grabs the Arianna Necklace (shown to the left). Want to win? Read on.

UCU: What is your favorite part about Urban Craft Uprising or other large-scale craft shows?
FB: I love the creative energy at any craft show but especially the large-scale shows. I feel like I'm with my tribe and our combined creativity can take over the world! Plus I love to shop handmade so I'm in retail heaven.

UCU: What do you like best about crafting/creating your product?
FB: I love making one-of-a-kind pieces with existing materials; each one is a puzzle of color, texture, composition and construction.

UCU: Is there something you are hoping to shop for, a treasure you'd like to find at this year's Summer UCU?
FB: Although I make jewelry, I love to shop for necklaces. I bought an amazing necklace at Crafty Wonderland - a tiny pvc cloud with silver-chain rain: I adore it. I'm all about skirts for summer so I'm hoping to find some of those too.

UCU: If you could have any super power, what would it be/why?
FB: Laser-beam eyes so I could solder pieces together with a pointed stare.

UCU: Its summer vacation time. Beach or the mountains?
FB: That's a tough one - I'm going with Mountains; they're more inspiring to me.

Thanks Shannon! Might I just say, Laser Beam eyes; a totally functional super power? Nice thinking. Now back to our giveaway. Want to win? Leave a comment below! We will select one winner at random and announce this week's winners on Friday.
