TSB Creations giveaway and discount!

What can I say about yoga. It's freakin difficult the first few times. I had no idea how inflexible I was.  My muscles ached for days. But the instructor assured me with continued practice, things would get better.

But I wasn't convinced about yoga just yet. I bought a 2 week trial at a local place and it was crazy popular. I was lucky if I wasn't hugging the person right next to me, and I also felt a little jealous. They all clearly had been doing it longer.
I stuck with it, though. I kept trying all different kinds of classes, and then I came upon the hip hop yoga class. The instructor was super inspiring and funny. She actually had us do some hip hop moves in between poses. It was fun!
And then... my flexibilty improved. My endurance lasted longer. The silence and peace at the end of the session relieved stress and anxiety... and well... I was standing taller! (ok maybe just straighter... terrible posture).

Yoga is a different experience for different people, so it was great to hear Tonya's story. She created this yoga bag and is the designer behind TSB creations on etsy.
Tonya has been doing yoga for 10 years. For her, it's about bringing the body and mind together. When she found the instructor for her, she was pleasantly surprised and her yoga experience has been great ever since.

A very good friend of Tonya's is also into yoga and Tonya made her first yoga mat bag as a present for her friend. It was a big hit so she made a few more, including the one you see above.

Yoga has been a great inspiration for Tonya. She loves to embroider and found inspiration in embroidering yoga themes onto fabric and then making those into useful products.

Tonya has been crafty since she was a child, and her talent was encouraged by her mother, starting with embroidery. She continued to expand with sewing and now she sells her beautiful creations!

What makes TSB Creations unique is that in addition to being handmade, many of the products are also hand embroidered with Tonya's own designs.

"I know there are some other more intricate designers out there but they use machines to create and implement those designs, my hands do everything in my shop"-Tonya.

And with those hands, Tonya has created cute mini-purses that I now have the priviledge to give away to you!

Use them for make-up or as a clutch! However you'd like.

If you can't wait to win, Tonya has offered a discount for all readers for the duration of this giveaway!

I think Tonya should make More Fairy Yoga Totes and totes aimed at Kids - either naptime tote bags or yoga totes for kids! (The Fairy idea made me think of it - my daughter would so love that!)
