I actually won something

So, I blogged and emailed about Elli Noelle Designs and was entered into a contest for free jewelry. In honor of her 100th blog post Rachel was offering $100 worth of jewelry. She had over 915 entries in her contest. And I won! I know several of you have mentioned that you're thinking of Elli Noelle for gifts and now I can splurge a little, too! How fun! Thank you Rachel!

Have you noticed that I like exclamation marks!!!

fabulous gift idea

So, I suppose this would fall under 'musings' as it has absolutely nothing to do with photography. I'm always looking for ways to support other women who have started their own businesses. I guess because I know how much work it is. And with the economy the way it is, I'm even more excited when the business is based in Michigan so that we are supporting our neighbors. I was tipped to this fun Etsy shop, Elli Noelle Designs.

A little bio about Rachel.
About Me : I am a wife to a musician and a good one at that :) A mother to 3 Angels. I am using the creative passion God has given me to make unique and fun items to support me so I may stay at home with my children.

And the goodies.
Each and every piece is handcrafted and hand stamped. I do not use presses or machines to create the wording on my jewelry. As such, please note that the differences in the finish and ‘imperfections’ such as floating letters (not perfectly computerized and straight) and the like are part of the inherent character and charm of the piece and should not be considered defects.

I've seen stamped pieces before and I always thing I need them. Wouldn't these make fabulous gifts for all the women on your shopping list? The fact that they are hand-made makes it even more special. So, hop on over to Elli Noelle Designs and start shopping!

Tuesday is Election Day

Unless you've been living under a rock the last year or so, you know that Tuesday, November 4th is Election Day. I would encourage all my fellow Americans to exercise your privilege as an American citizen to vote. Even if you're voting for that other guy. And Starbucks will give you a free coffee, just for doing the right thing.
