Spreading some love....

First, what you are all waiting for....the GiVeAwAy!!! Here he is...affectionately named Critter. He is part lamb part bear and part lover boy....and he could be yours with the winning comment...any old comment will do...but you can try flattery if you must.... comment away and I will choose a winner on Friday!!

Now it's time to share some wonderful goodies with you...things and people you didn't know you couldn't live with out...
First of all, my friend Michelle sent my honey and I this sweet card, a thank you for the previously posted birthday gift for Canaan. She sends these awesome cards through her Sendout Cards business that she and her husband have...(Holly I think you would especially love this!) You can upload photos, store your address book and even add your own handwriting! It is way cool plus you get the benefit of supporting a stay at home mom. :)
Next is my super sweet friend April...she just has the happiest little Etsy shop that you could ever have the fortune of stumbling into...color and flowers everywhere! She makes these awesome little paper blossoms that sell by the dozen! Everything she makes is sunshine and fun! You will love her...go see....
And is my favorite little potter on Etsy....LOVE every little piece that she makes and I am daily tempted to buy like five or 50 of her plates a day...she is super sweet and accommodating...and her prices are crazy good. Birds everywhere.
And here is my lust item. I cannot tell you how how how many times I have put this little bird bag into my cart, and take it out, and put it in, and take it out and put it in, heart it, unheart to avoid temptation, heart again, put in take out...in out....if you need a gift idea....I'm just saying.
Here is a bag that Kristi made that I own. I love it and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. I wish I could tell all the people who ask me if I made it, that I did. But that would be lying. Kristi makes all sorts of awesome bags...you should go get one...or two. Tell that bag I said "hey".
And last but not least is this sweet little seller...she impossible not to love...if not for her cute Etsy shop, then for her sweet personality...actually both. She is forever sending me fun ideas or encouraging words...I love these little button embellishments...couldn't you use a few for something?

So there is my love for the day...go check out these great folks....AFTER you leave a comment to enter the GiVeAwAy!!! ...then go spread some love yourself!
Pin It!

I love all your critters! Thank you so much for including Sunnypond in your Etsy list! I was at the computer editing new photos (for existing items) in my shop. I'm going to try something new and leave the backgrounds in because I love your photos with the backgrounds and I'm copying you. LOL. You don't have to include me in your drawing, but you can if you want. ;-) I'm so glad I "met" you.

awwwww thanks for the love Crystal. I so appreciate the plug. I am so happy you liked the Card from Canaan. Sooooo how much is your lust item I just need to know? Critter would be cute for a brown baby girl...I'm just saying.

I just found your etsy shop today -it is so cute (how's that for flattery?)! And I love that little Critter - too cute!
I love finding new Etsy shops too - those little dishes from handgrown have already found a way to my house - they are so cute!
I guess I just think everything is cute :-)

Your giveaways are so fun. I wish I was creative and had something to give away! Old CDs, maybe? lol

Anyway, my comment is this: I owe it to you for introducing me to etsy! I never knew it existed until you left a comment on our blog. I am sure my husband is SO pleased that you introduced me to a new place to shop! :) But I digress. Thank you for opening my eyes to a whole new world! :)

Crystal!!! I love your blog! Could you be any more talented?! My gosh, all of your etsy stuff is AWESOME too... Don't be discouraged. You are a fabulous mom and wife and just b/c you feel guilty about bringing home the bacon doesn't mean that is TRUTH- Truth: You love the Lord and your family, the world doesn't get to define how wonderful of a person you are, money doesn't buy happiness (b/c you have so much to be thankful for around you... two wonderful men in your life you love you with or without sales,) and of course, you have friends who love you dearly for WHO you are! You have blessed me today by reading your blog b/c I too struggle with the same issues. Your vulnerability gave me time to reflect and to put things into perspective. I love you so much and I miss you tons! What are you doing on Wednesday??? I have an opportunity to come see you and stay the night if you'll have me... (and Meira of course!) :) I know it's last minute, but let me know!
P.S. Could one of those freakin' super cute bags you make with the "o" handle be used as a diaper bag per chance? Love you, Katie

Hey Critter,
If you come live with us we will take you to Disneyland and send pictures of your adventures to your cool creator Crystal! Let's go on Dumbo and Peter Pan together!
Love,
Halley and Lucy

I thought you might like this quote. I think it answers some of your "5" issues lately. :)

Hey Crystal... If you would like I will send you a check to pay for 1/2 of the bag you want so bad. It can be our contribution to something you want for your birthday? What do you say! The bummer would be getting it way before the day.
