♥ Mean Look Giveaway!!! ♥

Who's ready for another Giveaway? Hoorah!!! 

This week I am very please to be sharing an awesome GiveAway hosted by Mean Look

Mean Look is a cute artfire shop making awesome one of a kind and limited edition items, all handmade with love! She has all sort of fun things in her shop; clothing, cute bags and purses, cosmetic bags, zipper pouches, arm-warmers, and some awesome seasonal items (including stockings!)!

What's extra fun is her arm-warmers are made from all the scrap fabric remnants, making them eco-friendly! Yayy for recycling! And they are perfect for this fall and winter we're heading into! 

Anyway, enough from me, more about Mean Look...


Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Vanessa. I have a boyfriend of nine years and a Chihuahua named Lydia. Yes, after Lydia in Beetlejuice. I’m the oldest of six children and I have a part-time job aside from Mean Look. I stay pretty busy, but I would love to be able to run Mean Look full time.

How did Mean Look come to be? 
My great-grandmother used to sew, and whenever we went to her house, we’d always raid her scrap bin. I remember hand sewing clothes for my Patty-O-Green doll. The first season of Project Runway awakened the seamstress in me, I suppose, and inspired me to get started. It just all looked so fun and I knew I wanted to do it. So I bought a sewing machine and got to learning. I have been told my whole life that I give “mean looks,” and it just hit me one day while trying to come up with a name.

Where do you find inspiration? 
I find inspiration in colors, patterns, and in nature. One look at my items and you know you’ll never see anything boring. It’s all bright and fun.

If you had all the money in the world, what handmade item would you buy? 
This is a tough one! If I had all the money in the world, I couldn’t just buy one handmade item. I would have to get something custom from SmarmyClothes, a vest from xannabotx, a jacket from aNGrYGiRL Gear, and some pants from Meow Kiki Clothing. And there would be more, but I’ll stop there.

One thing you can't live without?
Chapstick! I absolutely cannot go any amount of time without it.

Random fact?
I cannot seem to grasp the concept of patterns, or at least the kind you buy at the store. I started out by making my own patterns, so the premade ones are like Greek to me. I still buy them because I want to learn to make what’s on the front, but I can never get all the way through one. I have to do it my way.

Best piece of advice for life in general? 
I think the best piece of advice for life is to remember that life is what you make it. Only you are in control of your life, and you have to make it what you want it to be. This can be a tough one to keep in mind sometimes, but I think it’s pretty solid and meaningful.
