chatting w/ paige of artsyanthropology

So it's funny but it's the second week in a row where my little interview is with someone I've met in real life. Real life-- isn't that a funny thing to say-- as in this blog is not real life. 

But you guys know what I mean-- Paige and I met outside of typing or skyping or texting. Real face to face life. (shoot-- it sounds like I play a virtual reality game.)

We went to the same college for undergrad-- University of Washington (go dawgs) -- and she is good friends with a friend of mine!

Anyway-- grab yourself a beverage--whatever you want-- and sit down to meet Paige!


Who are you? 
I am a graduate student, who loves to craft and create things! I love bright colors and the idea of making something from nothing, or making something old beautiful.

How did you get started blogging and with your shop? 

I started blogging to increase advertising for my shop, and I started my shop because I had built up quite the collection of crafted items that I needed to "get rid of."

What does the "average" day look like for you?  
I either have class or work... or both - so as of lately I don't have very much free time... which is unfortunate because I want to work on my shop and blog but just don't have any time.

If any celebrity could own one of your products-- what would it be-- and who would it go to-- and why? 
Zooey Deschanel, because she is too cute (totally agree) and would look adorable in some of my bows!  That or Rachel Berry on Glee - ditto on the bows.
What is your favorite way to relax? 
A glass of wine or a beer, and a movie in my sweats :)
now what are you waiting for? go hang out with Paige! :)

and if you see something you like in her shop-- use rougeandwhimsy for 25% off :)

also-- last day to enter the giveaway with Mama Marchand, Rellas Bellas and Sew Beastly!
