Blog Award! :)

Hey everybody! I hope ya'll are having a great week so far!
I know I am!
WOW! I am SO blessed and thankful and I can't tell you how excited I have been these past couple of days!

First, I received the Liebster Blog Award from Bethany at Pitter & Glink! It was sooo very sweet of her to give me this award and I honestly can't thank her enough! I was literally jumping up and down with excitement! If you haven't already, go check out her blog! She has lots of cute craft tutorials! :)

What is the Liebster Blog Award??
 The Liebster Blog Award is an award that is given to blogs with less than 200 followers to show appreciation and encouragment. The word Liebster is a German word meaning 'dearest', 'beloved' or 'favorite'. If you are given this award you are suppose to link back to the person who gave it to you and then pass it along to 3-5 other bloggers and let them know.

So, I chose four bloggers and they are....

Michelle from Paper Krate
Karel from ArtandScraps

Don't forget to check out their blogs and show them some love :)

Ok, so I have some more exciting news :) for me anyways lol My mom decided to make a couple of dog beds for our dogs. Here is the Paris themed dog bed she made and here is a turquoise and leopard print one she made. Well, I started helping her and we decided we are going to try and sell them. We finished an Alabama themed dog bed the night before last (I'll share it with ya'll soon!) and I uploaded it to Facebook and we had a girl comment wanting us to make her 2! And more good news.....There is another girl opening a shop (antique, custom pieces, furniture, art and more) close to where my mom works and she wants to put our pieces in her shop!!! I am SOOOO excited! We're still trying to figure out all of the details so it's not a for sure thing yet, but hopefully! We are also gonna be doing custom furniture, vinyl and painted windows and maybe a few other things. :) We have also talked about doing some local arts and craft shows/festivals. This is a great opportunity for us because it's what we love to do and I couldn't be happier about all of it! It's all just happening so fast! :) lol

And I also want to say that I am thankful for each of my followers and the sweet comments I have gotten so far! Every time I get a new follower or comment, I have to run and tell my mom lol

I get excited really easy in case you haven't notice already lol :)

So, I just wanted to say how grateful I am! I don't take enough time to realize just how blessed I am sometimes, but these past few days have really had me thinking about it! :D

I hope ya'll have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!
