Meet & Greet With Alexandra Rose {And a Discount}

June 24, 2011


Erin Schrader

Hiya friends.
So guess what happened to me this week?
I made a new friend and I am pretty darn excited about it.
Because word on the street is making new friends is the cool thing to do these days.
And the second word is that when you make new friends, you brag on em’ a little bit, and then introduce them to the rest of your friends so they can be buddy buddy with your new friend too.
So waa-la.
Introducing Alex from Alexandra Rose Boutique.
Cute stuff am I right?
Not only does she have a charming little family, she also owns her own business.
Hence the “boutique” I mentioned earlier.
Let me show ya her skills.
Her goods are {almost} as cute as her and can all be found here.
Psssst….wait til you get to the bottom.
I may have a little surprise for you that will come in handy 😉
I think it’s time we get to know Alex a little better dontcha think?
Hmm..looky there.
I happen to have an interview with her 🙂

1. When was Alexandra Rose Boutique born and what inspired you to start your business?
I started selling my items locally in November of 2010. A wonderfully talented and amazing friend of mine, Heather, of {just.lovely.things} along with my super supportive hubby encouraged me to start selling my items at a local holiday crafters market. I had a really good time and got amazing feedback, so I set a goal to open up an online shop, and on March 1, 2011…I did! I started sewing once I had a baby, so my initial inspiration was definitely geared toward baby items and creating cute things I couldn’t find in stores. Now I’m having fun branching out to zippered pouches, tote bags and coin purses….there’s so much more I want to do!
2. What is your favorite item in your store?
Right now I’m totally loving the ruffled zippy pouches for me, and the taggie blankets for all the littles out there…seriously people, you should not be leaving your house without either of these things.
3. Aside from your business and blog, what other activities fill your day?
I’m a wife and a mommy to a busy 21 month old boy, and in addition, I work part time at a local preschool. Honestly, between taking care of the house, my hubby and baby, squeezing in time for crafting and blogging, I don’t have time for a whole lot. BUT, when I do get time, I love heading down to our local farmer’s market, hiking, going to the river and enjoying time with my family!
4. What is favorite summer dish to delight in?
If you know me at all, the completely obvious answer here is ice cream {I may have an addiction}, but I eat that all year round, so that doesn’t really count. I don’t know if I have a favorite dish, but I do love me a summer BBQ {but I’m also vegetarian, which also gets tricky} but Costco sells the most amazingly delish black bean burgers and they taste amazing on the ‘Que.
5. If you had no fears, what would you do today?
Bring home a pet spider and snake and then take both of them bungee jumping and sky diving 😉
Well wasn’t that fun?
Thank you Alex for sharing with us curious cats 🙂
…Now the treat for you folks reading.
Alex was kind enough to share the love and give you a discount at her store.
All you have to do is enter LIVING15 when checking out to receive
15% off your entire order.
You lucky devils.
So head on over-do some shopping-and then have the most spectacular weekend of your life.
Maybe next week we can have a competition to see who purchased the cutest ruffle pouch?
I’m game.
