I'm excited that your Etsy store is officially open!

Now, is it fair if I have 2 blogs and I enter 5 times on each of them? Both of my blogs follow you, they both have a button prominently featured on them. So, if they both count then that would be 4. Then, I went to your Etsy shop & I would like to say that I love it all. but I think my favorite is the Paper Mache Dream word. So Cute! Oh and also, I have ordered a frou frou frame from you so does that count?

;-)

Love You! and Good Luck!
