Limelight Giveaway- Maggie Overby Studios

I am back- it's been a great holiday but I am excited to get back into the swing of things and I have some exciting things to share with all you Limelight and Lillian Ray fans out there. Stay tuned for some FUN!

Let's kick of this new year by putting another wonderful shop in the Limelight.

I am excited to introduce you to Maggie Overby Studios!!

Let's learn a little about Maggie straight from her...

As a native of New Orleans and a graduate of New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and LSU school of Architecture I claim Louisiana and all its uniqueness as my home. I lived in New Orleans for 18 years and Baton Rouge for 7 but as an Army wife the last 10 years have involved a lot of moving.



I started my career in Architecture but as my first child was born and the first move was on the horizon I knew I needed a change. I wanted to stay at home with my kids but have a little extra money coming in. I started off sewing for the new house(s) and then for other people’s houses, before you know it I’m making pillows, drapes, bedding, slipcovers, whatever is needed.



I was inspired by an entrepreneurial mom who runs a hand bag business from her home. I CAN DO THAT! At least I think I can, so here I am on Etsy giving it a try. The flowers started as decoration for the purses I was making and now they are taking on a life of their own embellishing head bands, pillows and who knows what else.




My favorite item I have listed right now is the Marie Antoinette Pillow. It has a appliqued female silhouette with flowers in her hair. This came out better than I imagined it.

Decorating my house has always been my hobby and since I move so often I always have a new palette. I also enjoy creating scrapbooks especially when we get a chance to scrap with the friend who inspired me to start. I enjoy being creative and love when I get to make something with my own hands that I can really be proud of.




Maggie has a lot to be proud of because her store has some incredible items! Here is my favorite pillow from her shop:



Here are the giveaway details:


Maggie is generously giving away one flower head band (your choice) to a lucky winner!!



It's simple to enter- just comment on this post telling me what your favorite item in Maggie's shop is. Check out her shop here.

Get ready for some more giveaways and a BIG celebration.

I am very excited about 2010!
