Surprise Giveaway...Creative Carmella

 "It is more blessed to give than to receive"
Acts 20:35

So, I wish to announce...

and I can't think of a better way to 
spend it.

As I reflect on the last year, I continue to learn more about myself and I'm surely loving the journey.  It's funny how so many of us, myself included, thought we knew it all in our 20's, but now being in our 30's, 
we're really learning about life.  
One lesson I continue to get confirmation on is, friendships.  When we were little, middle school age, we attached ourselves to one person, in which we labeled our best friend; she was (y)our everything.  Days, months and years were spent with this person through times of struggle, laughter, and personal lessons.  As I grow older, and wiser, I continue to learn that in adulthood a single best friend isn't the case.  As I look at all my girlfriends, close and dear to me (near and far), I call them all my best friends; the ones that know me and/or understand me.  Each fabulous lady in my personal story, has a special quality that was once found in that one person, that middle school friend.  I have girlfriends that I laugh with regularly, talk with deeply, reflect on motherhood with and are together socially.  I'm happy to have learned that in our adult years, one shouldn't put all their eggs (friendships) in one basket (one person). Because if we do that, we limit ourselves from knowing so many wonderful people, that offer extra richness to our lives, and you to theirs.  Some people don't like to get older, but I've come to learn it's a wonderful thing.  So, I feel blessed for this birthday and those down the road.

Along side friendships, I feel overly blessed by all the wonderful fans/customers I have, so its to you, I give away 2 of my favorite accessories.

1.  A "Blessed" Necklace from Creative Carmella

I've learned that Carmella is a sweet (& wonderful) person and am glad to say she's not an imaginary friend I made up, she real, we've just never had the pleasure of hugging or high five-ing. The internet brought us together, but I feel it's much more than that.  I can say, without knowing her in person, she's super creative, witty, funny, charming, and makes my heart smile.

So, it seemed fitting to share her BLESSED 
necklace with you.

  1. Oh, YOU make my heart smile! I am so thankful that through this crazy world of the internet, blogging and Facebook....God saw it fit for us to cross paths. You are a blessing to me, and I am so thankful that, no matter how far away you are or non-imaginary you may be, I can still call you a friend. Happy Birthday to you!! And here's to appreciating the fine art of growing {older} and into the selves we were meant to be! Cheers!

  2. Carmella...you know I'm totally huggin' you! Thanks Ladies!!

  3. Hilani, Happy Birthday! I met you through Carmella, but I DO know her personally, and you have her 'pegged' just right. She is all the nice and fun things you said---and an unimaginably good friend (which I'm sure you are learning) I will not enter your giveaway--because I already have one of Carmella's 'Blessed' necklaces, and I want someone who could be encouraged by it to receive it. Just wanted to stop by and say--HAPPY DAY!
