Glam Crown Giveaway!!!

You lovely gals are going to LOVE this Giveaway... but first get to know more about the talented girl that designs these beautiful crowns and her shop!

Kim is a creative Crown designer inspired by fashion, home decor and her every day surroundings. She currently lives in sunny Florida

*Why did you open your Etsy shop?
I opened my Etsy shop because I was only selling to local shops and wanted to broaden my horizons and Etsy was the perfect outlet. Etsy has such a large audience that it made better sense than just my own website. It was definitely the right choice!
*What's your Best Seller?
My best seller is a tie between the BRIDE TO BE and the 40 & FAB. For some reason 40 seems a very popular birthday.
*What makes it a great buy?
My crowns are a great buy because they are completely original and handmade by me. Once you actually see the workmanship that goes into each crown you know you got a great deal and the fact that they can be personalized makes them really special.
*My Pick*
I absolutely love this whimsical set...just lovely!



Get to celebrate your Birthday with a fabulous Glam Crown!!!
These beautiful Glam Crowns will make your day even more special
The Glam Hatter will be giving away a BIRTHDAY GIRL crown to one of my lovely readers!
