In the Spotlight and a Giveaway


I am sooooo excited to tell y'all about this. My dear friend Victoria contacted me a while back to see if I'd be interested in being featured in her new series, Whimsy Spotlight Wednesday. Of course I said absolutely...how fun. This is something she decided to start doing to feature other artists, bloggers, etsy shop owners, like herself. She is doing this solely out of the kindness of her heart because she believes in women supporting women. There is no charge or special requirements. Her goal is only to help, to support, to spread the word. I just got back from reading her post this morning and I have to tell you I am awe struck. She really puts her heart into everything she does and says. She is genuine, sincere, and beautiful...through and through. I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to get to know her and become her friend. She is a real treasure! But I have to say...I think she was much too kind to me. As I was reading I got a little welled up. She said the kindest things about me, and I just don't know if I can live up to all that. So when you click over to her site...just ignore all the hype. I'm really not all that and a bag of chips. I'm just a regular girl sitting at her computer in her jammies, drinking a diet Dr. Pepper, eating some peanut butter crackers, AND loving every minute of this wonderful world of blogging. Seriously...I do LOVE it! But what I love the most are the bonds of friendship I've made over the last 10 months with each of YOU!




Oh, I almost forgot...there's a giveaway too! Now be sure to go visit Whimsy by Victoria and show her some bloggy love! Don't forget to look on her sidebar at her beautiful sewing projects. She makes the most amazing handbags and cute cupcake pincushions. To.Die.For. You definitely don't want to miss that!

Now go...

Okay, okay. You're just all that and a bag of PRETZELS. How's that? :)

I just visited Victoria's blog, and it doesn't seem to me that she exaggerated at all. And isn't her blog such a nice place to visit?

Enjoy the spotlight! You deserve it.

Amanda--Reality check here. Yes, you are a regular girl. Jammies, diet Dr. Pepper, peanut butter crackers regular girl. Totally. AND You are an amazingly talented, creative, inspiring artist. Please, please, please celebrate both the amazing parts of you and the regular parts of you. We all see it. I hope you see it too.

I went over to visit Victoria. She has a great blog. You were right, she is very talented. Her purses are so cute. I am serious about a bunch of us southern bloggers getting together. I am gonna see when it gets a little closer to Oct. and see if I have any vacation left. Not sure how far Canton is for you...

I love the article! And I totally agree with her comments on all of your ideas. You are so talented and I know you have TOTALLY inspired me. I am a perfectionist and it really holds me back. But I am trying things since I have started reading your blog! Thank you!!

bluecottonmemory said...

Amanda said...

I love your stuff! Do you do custom orders? I would love a set of blocks that said "Read"

Tara said...

I love your custom order wall letters. I would love to do my daughter's name.

Pamela said...

Thanx for stopping by!:) You should try it! The ONLY reason I did was because of the return policy. Sephora is great abt that. I was hesitant of the cost as well and did want to sink that amount of money into it but when they said try it and if ya don't like it bring it back I was sold. Now I love it. My face loves it.

Pam Walter said...

Your sites really complement each other; you are both very creative! www.satisfiedsole.com
