Sponsor Spotlight! An Interview and Giveaway from Sassy Punk Boutique!





My name is Leyla, and I live in Sugarland, TX.
I started sassyNpunk on Etsy in the summer of 2010, but now run my own website called sassyNpunk Boutique where I sell my own brand of products along with many other brands including Sanrio, Lime Crime, Too Fast, and many more!

1. What inspires you to come up with new designs?

This question is tough because there are so many things that inspire me. Creative & iconic photographs are one thing that really inspire me to do something new or bold. One modern day photographer i know of that takes really powerful and memorable pics is Janelle of Dangerously Dolly! Her photos are so colorful yet dark. She's really talented and a very sweet lady. Something else that i'm sure a lot of people would agree with me on is watching an inspirational movie. There are so many movies that are visual masterpieces!


2. How long have you been creating?

Not very long at all. I started in the summer of 2010 and every time i would learn one technique or skill, I would want to learn another! It's an ongoing thing with me. I get bored of using the same techniques all the time, and there is so much fun stuff to learn when it comes to arts and crafts! Therefore, I know I'll be doing what I do for years to come.



3. Where do you do your work? Do you have a dedicated area of your home, or?

I have a studio that is part of my home. My parents live in a really big house, so they were nice enough to let me have a part of the house =)



4. Tell us about a goal you have for your business

My goal is to just sell enough of my products so that I can keep creating new ones, and hopefully have my stuff in enough stores so that I don't have to worry about selling my products and just focus on designing. I love what I do, and I would love to do it forever.



5. What is your favorite album?

Hehe, that question is too complex. I have lots of favorite albums... but I don't have much time for music these days, so my record collection hasn't been getting used that much lately.



6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully, still working with sassyNpunk and have it established as a household name ^_^ It's a big dream, but if you believe in yourself and love what you do then there is no reason you can't make your dreams come true!



7. What is your favorite thing to do on a weekend?

Sleep late and watch Sailor Moon! hehe



8. Tell us about a new skill you'd like to learn

I would love to learn to draw because then i could expand into other areas of jewelry making! People think it's weird that i create such beautiful sculptures and charms, but I can barely hold a pencil steady! I agree it's strange!
