It's From Arizona: Feature + Giveaway

Another fun shop feature and giveaway coming up for you. When i came across It's From Arizona i was taken aback by their delicious-looking, scrumptious bath and body products. But, roaming through their aisles, i was introduced to a whole new world of gorgeous accessories and pieces. So first, let's hear what Monica, the woman behind this lovely shop has to say


My name is Monica, and I've been working with hemp since I was little. My mom would buy me the kits from Walmart with just enough materials to create a 1 necklace. I would craft them on long road trips and when I was looking for something to do around the house. I have another job at our local Aeropostale clothing store, where I came up with the idea to upcycle leather belts. They go on clearance, brand new, for like $1.35 so I couldn't help but buy them all. Now I'm cutting them up and stitching them with hemp to make really cute bracelet cuffs. I recently began working with soap and learning ALL about hand crafting bath and body products. It's so fun, and I can't stop! I've lived in Arizona practically all my life. My city is the hottest city in the country, and I've experienced first hand all the beauty and secrets of the desert. It truly is an amazing place...so that struck the theme of my shop, It's From Arizona. There you will find all the things that I love crafting - from hemp and leather jewelry, to soap. "


Now, for a quick tour of her shop. Let's start with my fav.- the Soap and Body Product  section.




   





I bet you are already drooling. Now, off to the hemp pieces.






or some hemp goodness for your canine mate......


And last, but not the least is the funky yet chic Leather upcycled cuffs in various designs.





and Monica has generously offered to giveaway a gorgeous Skinny Leather Upcycled Cuff worth $9.00 to one of our lucky readers.




75" wide, 7.75" in length (fastened). Hand stitched white hemp thread with teal buttons on dark brown pliable leather. Unique stitching features throughout the cuff. This cuff is $9.00.
