When my nephews are older and we actually live closer to them and they actually knew me better... I would wish they have these kind words to describe me... My friend, Debby, from college ordered this for her sister in law. Her daughter had these kind words to describe her Auntie. So sweet, huh? She even chose/requested the turquoise gem to go on the jump ring!
These are the cousins (minus Ryan who wanted nothing to do with Santa!) in 2009... It has been too long since we have been together.
Katherine mentioned me on her gift blog awhile ago and I completely forgot to thank her for the mention!!! I have enjoyed reading her posts on fashion! She provides an online "shopping directory and marketplace" where she showcases independent artists. I love that she makes time to browse other people's sites and then showcase their products for her readers. I know that she spends a lot of time into writing her posts so I always appreciate them when I read. I don't always have time to comment, but I make time as much as I can because she really is a special blogger friend. :) I also enjoy her other blog that talks about a lot of different things: her life, hobbies, crafts, giveaways, and just random thoughts that are fun to read!
A month ago I was approached via email by a lovely lady, Courtney. She has a wonderful blog for moms and women in general. She and her sister, Betina, run this awesome blog. They talk about all things women. You know... fashion, fitness, art, spit up, (lol) etc.! (They even have their own etsy shop! Check it out... makes me want to have another baby!) So, you can imagine how shocked I was that she found me! Little old me... who just started a small, very small business and blog! And guess what, she featured me on her blog!!!! I know!!! I am soooo excited to share this with you! Hop on over, read my short interview and then read their other posts -- they are great!!!!
And if you are interested, you might want to join a new social network that I have joined. It's through VoiceBoks that I have met so many amazing women. For example, (in no particular order) Kelly, Veronica, Katherine, Kathy, Aurie, Michelle, Melissa, and Colleen... just to name a few!
Let me introduce you all to Kelly. She is a new bloggy friend I met after joining VoiceBoks. Through some commenting back and forth I found out that her daughter's teacher had invited the entire class to her wedding ceremony. The entire class!!! So, being a former teacher, I felt so touched by that gesture. I contacted Kelly and offered to stamp a fork set for her daughter's teacher! This is what we came up with:
Her daughter loves her teacher and is looking forward to attending... follow Kelly, I'm sure she'll post some photos!
BUT for now, Kelly and her community are a bit busy helping out a little girl in their community. Please stop by her blog to read about Gabby. Read this, this, and then this. Her stories will break your heart, but it will inspire you to help as well. Kelly and I are working on a pendant for Gabby and her mom. I'll keep you posted!
