CAPOSHI + GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Hey, folks! I’m Anastajia - most people just call me Stajia, so we’ll go with that. I was born in beautiful Orange County and grew up in the Inland Empire, where I currently live - lets go So Cal!! Since graduating with my BA in studio art, I’ve been chasing my dream of being a full-time//fully-supporting artist. My independent business Caposhi /ka-paw-shee/ is where the magic happens!

2. What made you decide to start blogging?
I must admit, I’m not as much of a blogger as I used to be//would like to be. I think its mainly because I over-think what to write about! When I do manage to dream up a blog post, I tend to share things with my readers. Whether it's a new artist I love, a song from an artist I'm crushing on, a DIY, or a silly adventure story, my goal is always to share something personal and fun with my readers.

3. What are your favorite things to blog about? Favorite posts? 
I’m currently cycling through a major Pinterest obsession, so most recently, my favorite posts revolve around that. I love sharing new finds I’m drooling over, hoping my readers will too!

4. What are you favorite things to make for your shop?
My favorite thing to make is jewelry. I am a huge accessory buff, so jewelry is of course an absolute must! My current spring line is largely geometric, deceptively minimal and strikingly bold.  While the jewelry I make is constantly taking on new influences, I always look to include a delicate balance between new and old, masculine and feminine, and popular trends and unique perspectives.

My fall line, which I’m in the process of wrapping up, will feature subtle botanical hues paired against a warm desert vibe. I am seriously stoaked - should have new items up mid to late September! Woo!

5. What is your favorite pass-time? 
Taking it easssy! I love spending time with my fabulous friends, my wonderful boyfriend, and my two dog children: Penelope and Bigsby. (It’s embarrassing how much I love my dogs - they are seriously two of my very best friends!) I’m a total foodie, a thrift store junkie, and an avid photographer. I love doing new things and am always up for an adventure! Recent conquests include roller derby, firing huge guns at the shooting range, and knitting.

6. What is on your current wish-list? 
EVERYTHING from Nasty Galrecord playerroller skatesswiss army knifethis print, this print and this print.


7. Favorite blog reads?
For all things food ---> A Cozy Kitchen
For all things home ---> Design*Sponge
For entertaining inspiration ---> 100 Layer Cake
For design inspiration ---> Lovely Package
For everything else ---> Oh Joy Blog
And like 1000 more, but I cant really list evvvverything can I??

8. Favorite summertime song?
Don’t judge me - but I love that Call Me Maybe song by Carly Rae Jepsen... I can’t get it out of my head and I blast it EVERY time it comes on on the radio! Not my favorite summer song of ALL time, that distinction would hands down go to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but definitely my favorite summer song of 2012. (I found a wonderfully ridiculous metal cover of that song on youtube - def worth a watch//listen! Too funny!)

9. What's your favorite meal?
Only one?! I LOVE FOOD! Any and every kind of food - I could never choose just one meal to be my favorite. I think when it comes to food favorites I seek out quality ingredients, unique combinations, serious deliciousness, and a passionate cook. Any meal that meets that criteria is a favorite in my book - those are the meals you remember!

10. What inspires you?
I always push myself to find inspiration in the most seemingly ‘un-inspirational’ or overlooked places. Graffiti in a parking garage, nature creeping in on an abandoned building, disposable packaging. I also find a lot of inspiration in the created world around me - advertisements, products, print, that sort of thing. I’m also very tuned into fashion, street art, alternative culture, and nature - inspiration is everywhere!
