Dress: Custom by Janna Merciel
Cardigan: Kohl's
Necklace: Ann Taylor LOFT
Tights: Gap
Rain Boots: Target


{Giveaway Feature}
I'm a wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2007 which later became Crohn's disease. I've had lots of struggles but I am so thankful for my family and friends that support me. I've have a wonderful, funny husband and a sweet little girl.
 
Photography became my hobby and creative outlet after I had my daughter, I was constantly taking pictures of her. Four years later my little hobby turned into a business. It started by taking pictures of friends and grew from there. I love interacting with families and children.
 
After attending a craft show last winter I got the idea for ABC Art. Once I started, I was hooked. I see letters everywhere now. I always enjoy making them and coming up with new ideas. 

A special thank you to Photos by Mamie for this donation.

{Giveaway Feature}
$40 Shop Credit to Gussy Sews
Helloooo! My name is Gussy. I sew ruffles and share my adventures of having a handmade biz on my blog. I live in Minneapolis with my husband Zack and puppy Bauer. Just over 2 years ago my husband and I were living near Detroit. We had recently moved there and I was looking for a creative way to spend my evenings when Zack had to work late. I decided to teach myself how to sew with the help of many library books. Shortly after moving to Detroit, we BOTH lost our jobs. Later that year we moved to Minneapolis, which is where we currently live. My business is my passion. I love that I'm able to share our story of unemployment, my story of an indie biz owner, and YOUR story of handmade goodness. I love to support other handmade shop owners... it's a true delight.

Inside my shop you'll find colorful, ruffled accessories: tote, laptop and market tote bags, zipped pouches, make-up bags, wristlets, headbands -- even eReader cases. Visit my shop and get Ruffle-licious with our products :]

A warm thank you to Gussy Sews for this fabulous donation!
