FEATURED ARTIST + SHOP OWNER: DEAR MOONBEAMS

 

I have been following Megan's blog for quite some time now and actually won two of her giveaways (lucky me!). Most recently, I won this wonderful embroidery hoop from this giveaway! It is currently hanging up in my cubicle :) Anyway, I think her shop is absolutely adorable with embroidery hoops to make any house or space feel like home! Read along to learn more about her precious shop and her inspirations. Be sure to check out the READER'S COUPON at the bottom of the post! My readers will receive their own discount code :D So... what you waiting for? Read along and snag one of your own Dear Moonbeams embroidery hoops!

THE INTERVIEW

1. Introduce yourself and a little background info!
Hello! My name is Ms. Megan, I am 22 years old and I love reading, taking bike rides, baking up sweet treats, watching doctor who + pushing daisies, taking photos, playing with my cats, going thrifting, browsing book shops, taking long walks and drinking tea.

2. What inspired you to create an embroidery shop?
My dear friend AMY started embroidering as a hobby and she created the sweetest little hoop for me. I commented how talented she is at everything she does (she writes beautifully and takes the most enchanting photos!! I highly recommend checking out her BLOG!!) She told me how simple of a hobby it is to start and pointed me towards MOLLIE'S BLOG for tips and tricks for beginners and I just started from there!! I found more techniques online and I love watching movies + reading books for inspiration for the quotes that I stitch.

3. What other crafts/diy are you interested in?
I love scrapbooking, sewing (mostly by hand as I can't work a sewing machine!) making jewelry, painting, creating banners to hang up around the house and anything else I find on Pinterest! ;)

4. What's the story behind the shop name?
I wanted something to go with my blog name (Moonbeam Wishes) and I thought that the name Dear Moonbeams would fit right in. I love wishing on stars and gazing up at the moon and I thought the affectionate title seemed just right! I also kinda love that it looks like the beginning of a letter. :)

5. When you're not owning your own shop and blogging, where can we find you?
Usually curled up with a book with a cup of tea by my side and a cat or two underfoot.

6. What's your favorite part about owning your own shop?
The hours are great, the all you can drink tea is heavenly and I really rather like my boss! ;) I also love the freedom to go wherever the wind takes me and I can get as creative as I wish.

7. What's in the future for you and Moonbeam Wishes?
Hopefully great and wonderful things. :)
