Giveaway! - The Pink Zebra Boutique (Ended)

Pin It

Another Thursday - Another Giveaway!

This weeks giveaway is from The Pink Zebra Boutique who is giving away a Beautiful Red Rose Necklace and Ring set!

Read ahead to learn more about Melissa ans Sara, how they got started creating their beautiful pieces, and see how to enter for your chance to win! 

This giveaway is open for USA only.




When did you start getting into crafting, and what did you start with?
We both have had creative minds since we were young & can remember doing craft projects in Vacation Bible School, Girl Scouts & during the summer when we had to take a break between watching TV & playing outside. Now that creativity expanded into decorating our homes, office spaces and our business. A few of the things we both remember doing were braiding multi-colored string for bracelets, melting crayons and other parts and fastening them onto blank barrettes, and painting rocks to sell to the neighbors (for a mere $.25)!




Do you work outside of your Etsy shop? If so, how do you find time for both?
Yes, we both have full-time jobs, which is actually how we met! Even though we are dedicated to our full-time jobs, we try to crunch in crafting and attending shows in the evenings and on the weekends. In a perfect world we would be able to do both with the same amount of effort but sometimes our everyday lives take over for weeks on end without having much time to focus on our business. But, that’s okay too! One thing that helps us is the fact that all of our products for sale on Etsy are ready to ship in order to provide the best customer service.




How did you learn about Etsy?
We stumbled upon Etsy when browsing the internet a few years ago and always admired what other people had in their shop





When did you start your shop?
Our Etsy shop was opened in May 2011 soon after we developed a concept and product line. However, most of our success has been with in person events.


Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
We both love jewelry, hair accessories and kids so we just tried to come up with things that we thought were cute or what we thought kids would like.


Is there a certain item with a story behind it?
Our cocktail rings were inspired by Megan Horsch of Kaylee Bug Design www.kayleebugdesign.com who gave us the inside scoop. However, we wanted to be able to make the flowers on our own without having to purchase from a supplier. So, we took many days to research and do trial runs with different products to come up with our flowers. After success with the rings, we decided to use the flowers with other items (earrings, bracelets and necklaces).



Do you have advice for any shops just starting?
Don’t get discouraged by not selling anything right away. Give it time and do your best to market your items. Good pictures help tremendously in gaining attraction from customers.

Do you have a Facebook fan page? Blog?






Fun Questions to Get to Know You:


What is the furthest place you have traveled?
Sara: Spain in high school
Melissa: Mexico in high school





Do you have any pets? If so what are their names?
Sara: 2 male cats, Tiger and Stripes who live with my parents (but I still consider them “mine”)
Melissa: Dog-Vizsla named Tucker. He’s my baby!!





What is your favorite food?
Sara: I have a favorite dish from a local restaurant which consists of penne pasta, chicken, pesto, spinach, tomatoes and feta…delicious! But even more delectable with a glass of Moscato!
Melissa: I go crazy for fresh pineapple!!

to be honest, the red rose ring is my absolute favorite, it is GORGOUS! it is eye-catching... but it is also simple enough to get away w/ wearing it w/ everything. red is my favorite color and this is a perfect accent piece for virtually any outfit.
