In her own words:
Hi, my name is Dawnmarie and I think every girl, young and old, should have at least a little bit of glam!
I am a single mom and have the four most wonderful kids in the world! My baby (who is now 8 years old) is Andrea. I tell her all the time that she will forever be my baby, even when she is all grown up. This is what inspired the name of my boutique, Forever Andrea. We also have a Siamese cat named Blue, who thinks we can speak Siamese! She talks to us a LOT!
Jewelry is my passion, and I frequently lose all track of time while creating a new piece and listening to some Eva Cassidy. Before I know it, it is 3AM ! I adore lots of different kinds of crafts. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was only about 8 or so, and I am such a tactile person that the softest yarn always wins my heart. I have recently fallen in love with paper and beautiful fabric. I started making some really lovely bookmarks using textured papers, fabric, ribbons and other embellishments. I also dabble in bath and body products, and make some velvety body/massage oil among other things.
I live in the beautiful state of Utah, and she is my muse. Rugged snow capped mountains on all sides, brilliant crimson and indigo sunsets, golden aspen forests and red rock deserts provide me lots of inspiration. Plus, I really like sparkle. Sparkly is my favorite!!
Besides Etsy, I can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and a very neglected blog.
I will be gift wrapping for free this holiday season and also will be doing sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If people become a fan on facebook, they will have access to exclusive offers, discounts and give-aways!
