Persnickety Home Designs Giveaway

I am the type of person who thinks the little things really make a difference when you are decorating a room. Sometimes just a splash of colour here and there can really make a difference. I found Persnickety Home Designs on Etsy and fell in love with the pillow covers. I have a dark couch in my living room so I like to use throw pillows to dress it up a bit. Persnickety Home Designs believes that every home can be comfy and beautiful with tons of personality and they offer only high quality items. I love that they are made in a smoke free and cat free home using designer fabrics. They also do custom orders too! Here’s a few of my favourites that I would love to have in my home.

Cindy, the creator of Persnickety Home Designs kindly answered a few of questions to get to know her and the business a bit…

Please tell me about yourself.
 
Well, I come from a really large family where creativity and imagination was encouraged. I’ve been happily married to a great guy for twenty plus years, he is my best friend and he also is very creative and ingenious with crafting. We have lived all over the U.S. from the coast to the mountains to many places in between. I have many interests, crafting definitely that includes fabrics, drawing, painting, sculpting, and wood working. But I also love hiking, camping, fishing, and swimming, a lot of my inspiration comes from being outside. Me, my husband, and my dogs hit the trails or the water and we are in heaven! My interests also includes reading. Anything really, although I certainly have some favorites, History and Sci-fi mostly.
 
Please tell me about your business.
 
This business is a challenge for me, my friend Kristen is the one who really made me believe I could do it, she is fearless and that inspired me. It is a risk, yes; but that is life. Life is full of risks, doing nothing is also risky but very predictable and boring. So, since life is short and I’m not getting any younger, I thought “what the hell” so I’m giving it a try. This coming Tuesday the 17th will be a month, so far, so good. 🙂 I sell Pillow cover mainly, but also Lavender Sachets, Drink Coasters, and Pincushions. I will soon be adding Table runners, Place mats, Pot holders, Aprons etc. I will eventually be adding custom lawn furniture, chairs and small tables. Also a line for the birds, Bird houses and feeders. I have a few other ideas but its only been a month.
