sponsor love: interview and giveaway from Krista of Saturated Canary Art

i recently came across this particular artist's work on several of my daily blog reads and was completely uh-mazed by her spectacular creativity and imagination. every piece is so unique and captures so much personality, you can't help but get sucked into the world of each drawing. and that's not all, that this artist has to offer - her blog is more than definitely an awesome, inspiring read. her fashion taste is superb and her family, so precious!

 meet krista.

tell us about your incredible blog 
and adorable shop.

My name is Krista.  I am an artist.  Saturated Canary Art is my Etsy shop.  It is filled with little characters...girls with nerdy glasses, slouchy socks, big boots, pouty smiles, and there is even the occasional zombie:). I also have a blog, Saturated Canary, where all the inspirations for my art, personal style, and life as a mama converge.  I'd love if you stopped over and became a friend!

three random facts:
1. I married my blind date.  Our tenth anniversary is this October!
   2. I have a degree in civil engineering.
    3. Top three people I'd love to meet (no time, history, or reality boundaries;):  
Bethany Frankel, The Wicked Witch of the West, and Amelia Earhart.

like i've already said, krista's imagination blows my mind. 
you'll see what i mean if you take a stroll through her uh-mazing shop.
and you'll totally want to take a stroll through it because today krista is offering the chance for one of you to get your hands on...
