It's my Etsy-versary!!!

And that means a giveaway! :)

I've been on Etsy for 3 years now... and while it has not done what I intended it to do (to help pay household bills while being a stay at home mom), I have made lots of good friends through my teams. Sometimes that is more valuable than having lots of sales - not that I wouldn't mind my sales going up just a bit... ;)

I am giving away this necklace:

It has a lovely summery feel to it, with shades of blue and turquoise. You can find out more info here. To enter, just pop over to my shop and pick your favorite item. Come back here and leave a comment, with a way I can reach you if you are the winner. Winners will be chosen Monday, July 19th. For additional entries, you can tweet about this giveaway on Twitter or like me on Facebook. Good Luck!

I've also just come back from our vacation. Every year we take our son back to Nebraska and Kansas to see his grandparents. I'll be sharing the trip with you little by little over the next week or so. This trip wasn't the ideal trip, but we did manage to have a little fun. I guess we should have known it wasn't going to be a wonderful vacation when we had to take a commuter plane from Denver to Kansas City... Who knew people didn't want to fly to KC from Denver?

We took Colin to the T-Rex Cafe in Kansas City, KS. They have a Build-A-Dino there, and Colin got a new dino thanks to Grandma and Grandpa. He got one a few years ago that he named Rocky, and he wanted Rocky to have a friend. When it came time to name his new dino, he named it Rocky! Here's Colin giving the new Rocky a bath...

That's all for now... Tomorrow I'll tell you about our trip to Emporia, KS! :)
