I had mentioned doing a giveaway because of it. So I was swirling around ideas in my head thinking of how I would go about doing it and what amazing shops/blogs I would include as part of said giveaway when I realized it's because of all these amazing blogs/shops in this great blogosphere that my community of friends has continued to grow.
I have met so many other mamas, crafters, vintage lovers, flea market shoppers, Disneyland goers, God fearing, Jesus loving, writers, pastry eaters, picture taking, sing in the shower, dance in the rain type of peeps. I love making that connection and watching new friendships bloom. Who even if we only have one thing in common it's that one thread that brings us together and builds up this community.
This gratitude I'm feeling extends past the web and into life away from the monitor as well. All the friends and family who follow along, keeping up to our day to day here on my happy space, means more than you know. I appreciate you all so much and love that you don't judge me for never calling because like you say best "I can just check on your blog to see what you're up to" and I appreciate that so so much. (yes I'm talking to you mom, Shan, Nat, Kate, Jenn, Tricia and the rest y'alls)
Though I'm working harder at being more intentional with both my online and "real" life friends, for the meantime let me just say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. You all are constantly blessing my socks off! So today I thought instead of rounding up goodies from all the amazing talents out there I would give away something direct from me to you!
$50 Gift Card to Madewell
This store was just recently introduced to me and from the moment I walked through its doors to shop I was in LOVE! Seriously if you aren't a shopper here you need to be and this is a perfect little sumtin' sumtin' to help get you started.
"Pretty Things" Hand Stitched HoopI'm giving away one of my newest creations from the shop.
So if you're thinking I don't craft or make things, well what about babies. Are you a mama? I bet you make pretty babies, so technically you do make pretty things. Oh what's that you're not a mama or a crafter? Do you bake? I bet you make pretty treats! Still no? Well, I bet you know someone who does make pretty things and this hoop valued at $50 would be the perfect gift for them!!
How do you enter? Easy Peasy.
You must be a follower of my blog (because come on this is a gift for my fellow followers) and can enter the giveaway using the rafflecopter below.
Good luck and Happy Hump Day!!
