Pin It!

Thanks to our lovely friend Julie over at JulieAnnArt I've now added a "Pin It" button to the bottom all my blog posts. This will allow all you lovely folks to pin the images you like from my posts to your Pintrest boards. And if you're as addicted to Pintrest as I am, this could be very dangerous. If you'd like to ad the "Pin It" button to your blog as well, check out Julie's easy-to-understand tutorial HERE.

Featured Artist::: Laura Malek

Good Day Friends!

Most of you know today's artist Laura Malek by a different name, Felt Jar. Felt Jar is Laura's irresistible Etsy shop which I'm sure quite a few of you are familiar with. However, the images I'm going to share with you today are from her photography site. I love her work, and I'm sure you guys will too!

My goal for the year is to be brave. I think I'll have to do a lot of hard things this year so I need to keep that in mind!

I'm Tara, I like to make things mostly sewing but I am a bit of a crafty dabbler.  I'll try any crafty thing at least once! You can usually find me in my pretty little craft corner working away on cup cozies.

I plan on doing more crocheting and finally tackling knitting.  I really want to make one of those great knit mug cozies (surprise, surprise).  I have a bad habit of spending most of my time in yoga pants, a t-shirt and a hoodie so I'm trying to take it up a notch and wear some accessories too!

Hello! It's Minna from Teal & Tea blog! Many of you may not know that I own a jewelry shop! I started MINCO Jewelry last year, in the hopes of creating jewelry that represents modern minimalism. All of my jewelry is handcrafted by me! I enjoy every bit of it, and being able to present someone with something they love, makes me so happy! I hope you take the time to check it out! (:

In the new year, my goal is to just keep doing what I love to do!

Hello! My name is Lauren and I'm the chick behind Whimsy Lane. This here photo is of some of the ruffle clutches I'm offering in the giveaway! Ooh the colors!

          One of my resolutions for this year is to cut my food consumption down to a solid 5 meals a day and try to incorporate at least one leg lift in there somewhere. But seriously, I'd be happy with health and life. That's all you can really ask for right? The rest is up to us.

I offer free shipping! Yay! As long as you live in the United States there's no pesky additional fees. The shipping's on me!
