Women-preneurs Galore Blog Giveaway Featuring seababejewelry

Sea Babe Jewelry is one of my favorite Etsyans- well, technically two of my favorite Etsyans, because Kristin and David work as a team. They caught my attention on the Etsy forums as a wonderfully friendly and helpful pair, and their work is intensely inspiring. I ordered a custom ring stack for myself as a 30th birthday treat, and I couldn't have been more pleased.

The three silver rings are each a different texture, and I chose champagne (natural) diamonds. The result is simply stunning.

Sea Babe has been featured- deservedly so- in Etsy's Storque and also in magazines and blogs. Currently, you can find a blog feature/interview with a giveaway at Women-preneurs Galore.
You can read Kristin and David's own blog here, where they are also currently doing a very sweet giveaway!

Thankful Thursday Post

When I did my first (and only- until now) Thankful Thursday post, I thought it would be sweet to do one weekly. Then my boys got colds. I was up all night with them. Then I got a cold. Then my cold turned into bronchitis. Tanner's cold turned into ear infections. And Braeden's cold turned into strep throat which turned into scarlet fever. Are we a talented bunch, or what?

We managed to have a fabulous Christmas despite being under the weather (we spent Christmas Eve at urgent care, and New Year's Eve at the doctor). When we missed church, church came to us in the form of our pastor, his wife and one of their sons. It was so heartwarming to have them come bring us their well wishes, and a few surprise gifts.

My cookie mix turned into.... nothing. It stayed in the pantry. My Christmas cards turned into Happy New Year cards. And later, I found out, a treasury that I was featured in by pinkparchmentsoaps was turned into a Front Page (and I made front page again today, which turned me into a giggly little girl).

I enjoyed the company of my family, my friends, and my Etsy peeps. I think I love them all equally, lol. My life is full, my heart is bursting, and I am *almost* always smiling. And I just want to say thank you to everybody who is a part of my life and my world.
