Giveaway - Born Ready

Oh, I am loving this.  Everyone give Dove some love for the intro to this lovely shop owner.  One of my new favorite shops from etsy is Born Ready.  Heather has taken kids' clothing to a whole 'nother place and I love every little bit of it.  Let me introduce you.

 Hi Mavis,
I am so excited to be able to share with you a little bit about Born Ready.

1. Where did Born Ready come from?
Growing up in an active family of 5 brothers and 1 sister I learned a lot about living and LOVING life in the outdoors. I learned that this world we live in is truly remarkable, and the adventures that await us are endless.

At the tender age of 20 me and my husband opened up a bike and snowboard shop in a growing college town. After 15 years in business we decided it was time for a change. We sold our admired business and moved to a smaller town. This gave us both an opportunity to pursue something new. Something exciting! With my husbands love for the outdoors he started a business building amazing custom bikes full time. http://www.kelsonbikes.com

I currently have the AWESOME responsibility of taking care of 3 active boys ages 11, 8, and 2. We enjoy shredding the mountain slopes, hiking the areas wondered peaks, and dropping in on the coolest half pipes made to man. We LOVE to play outside!

This gave me the idea of making cool home grown threads for the little rippers in my life. I was so stoked about the idea of every little kid sharing his personality through the threads they wear that I took another step into the unknown. I started thinking from a little kids perspective. I asked my little ones what they wanted to wear and from those conversations "Born Ready" was born.

I am excited to share with all of you Born Ready, and look forward to seeing your little kiddos wearing their own unique personalities.

2. Who is your muse?
My muse comes from a pretty rad lady named Mother Nature. She makes life just a little bit sweeter for all of us. If you ever just need a little pick-me-up or want to find answers to unanswered questions just open your front door, take a deep breath, and listen to what Mother Nature has to say. She’s pretty AWESOME!

3. What inspires you?
My family is my inspiration for everything I do. It is truly amazing having such a wonderful support group in my life. My kids come up with super fun tee ideas, my husband supports me no matter how crazy he may think I sound. From friends and neighbors to mothers and fathers - they all share a very special part in the Born Ready process.

4. What do you love to do in your spare time?
Is that word in a mother’s vocabulary? Well, like I say I love being outside and I love a good adventure. If I had a day to just hang I would climb the highest mountain with my guitar attached to my back and my notepad in my bivisac. I would sit, listen, and watch. I would sit some more, listen some more, and watch some more. And when the sun started to set I would ponder on life and how amazing it truly is. Spare time is not something I take for granted. Cherish each spare second of every day no matter what comes your way .

5. Top 3 favorite albums?
I LOVE a good tune and all types of music. So naming 3 favorite albums is all but impossible. So here are a few of my favorite artists.
1. Queen – Greatest hits
2. Bee Gees –
3. Paul Simon -

6. 3 etsy shops you think we should know about.
