winner, announcement, and another giveaway

Thanks to we have a winner! And that winner is...


Congratulations, Becca! Send me an e-mail when you get a chance and I will send this happy package on its way.

And for those of you who want to get your hands on some handmade goodies, well I have some good news for you...

I opened an Etsy shop!

You can see my shop by clicking here or on the gallery pictures to the right. I have a few items listed and more on the way, including some pretty bags, handbound journals, and little bird pendants, so definitely stay tuned. I love creating handmade goodies and I'm glad to finally have them available to the public! Please feel free to spread the word. In fact...

How about another giveaway?

Here's the deal: you make a post about my Etsy shop on your blog and I'll enter you for a special *custom* giveaway, meaning you will get to tell me what colors you like and I will make 3 items especially for you. After you make the post on your blog, come back and make a comment on this post before Monday, November 2 at 11:59pm and you will be entered in the giveaway. Feel free to use any images from my Etsy shop for your post. :)

giveaway time!

Finally - it's time for a giveaway! It's over two weeks late, but I hope you'll think it was worth the wait.

Here we have a lovely little handbound journal, small enough to carry around in your purse, scripture case, etc.

Next is a set of 12 little notecards.

Also included is a little chocolate brown wallet, perfect for carrying your credit cards in - I use mine all the time!

And last but not least is the cute little bird charm made from a Scrabble tile. Don't you love this paper?! I think I might be making another one of these for myself.

So, how do you enter to win? Just leave a comment on this post before Friday, October 23 at 11:59pm. Also, as a little bonus to everyone who has commented on my blog since I first announced the giveaway in September, once you comment on this post, I will enter your name again for each comment you have made since that time up until I made this post. I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting comments, so thank you! :)

here i am!

So, remember how I posted 7 days in a row and went MIA for over a week? Yeah, sorry about the absence. I would have posted sooner, but I've been planning and coordinating my sister in-law's wedding. In fact, I've been working with Shallie on wedding plans since June! The wedding was this past Saturday and it went beautifully! Here are a few pictures of some of the happy details.

And don't worry - I'll be doing another wedding post sometime in the near future. In addition, I am still planning to do the little giveaway I promised! That should be coming later this week, so stay tuned...
