UPDATE: Thank you so much for all your sweet comments! The giveaway is now closed and Dana from Summer Teeth is the random winner!

To finish off my holiday giveaway series I’m making it personal and offering up $100 in store credit to my own shop, ANN-YA! I’m going to keep this giveaway open until the new year, so please leave a comment on this post (whatever you like, it’s a free-for-all this time!) for a chance to win!

My line recently had its first anniversary and it has already changed so much in one year, evolving from an attempted clothing line into the world of leather. I’ve been super happy to be making things and am feeling pretty lucky that the people around me (both in Portland and virtually) have been supportive of my work. Right now I’m the featured indie designer on Megan Nielsen‘s great blog and you can read about my experiences in becoming a designer. Definitely read the other posts in that series too!

I was going to finish off this post with a bunch of the rad gift guides that have featured my stuff, but my computer is acting super weird and I can’t open photoshop to edit anything, so it will have to wait! I do post things like that regularly on the ANN-YA facebook page, so you can see them there. Yay!
