Hello Monday!

I have been waiting to share this week with you for, well, the whole month of June!  Ha!  But today is just an introduction...tomorrow is when the real magic happens!

Hello to sharing with you some of my most favorite people and things!

Hello to Crystal B!  Do you know her shop?  Really, I cannot even begin to tell you how I love this lady.  This necklace - the All is Well necklace - was the first purchase the Pendley family made off etsy.  And then I began reading her blog and then we bonded over our mutual love of books and so on and so forth.  Over the past 2+ years she has been one of my biggest supporters and I will never be able to thank her enough for that. 

Hello to Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy!  Such cute, cute things and such a sweet, sweet girl!  We've been in cahoots lately and I was so afraid that she wouldn't remember who I was or my little shop...but she did!  I am so inspired by her - her work, her home, her parenting...I love that about her blog.

And speaking of inspiration...these two ladies...

Hello to Lisa Leonard...absolutely fabulous!  Her jewelry is outstanding, her lovely.  

Hello to Maggie at Gussy Sews.  I swoon over her shop.  I don't know what I would do without my Gussy Sews pouch in my purse.  Love.It.

Hello to Knitty Bitties!  Seriously.  Andrea creates the most fantastic things.  And she is soooooooo amazingly nice.  We recently became internet friends and I think she is amazing!  I am hoping to add some more Knitty Bitties to my current collection!

Hello to Sara at Twillypop!  This bracelet is one of my most favorite things.  I love it.  Seriously, I have one and wear it all.the.time.  And, to top it off, Sara is such a nice one too...which makes me love the bracelet {and my other Twillypop pieces} even more!

Hello to these adorable post earrings from Made By Jewls!  Her shop was built to raise funds for the adoption she and her husband are hoping for.  And I, for one, am more than happy to support that cause!

Hello to my favorite lip balm from Orange Thyme!  So magnificent {and such cute packaging}!

Hello to one of my favorite print shops!  ANNNNNNNDDDDD, get this!  Lindsay lives in my state!  ANNNNNNNNDDDDD I think I might actually get to meet her LIVE and IN PERSON this fall!  Super excited about that!

Hello to hand stamped coffee spoons from Jessica N Designs!  This is one of my favorite gifts to give...she has such great things in her shop!

Hello to Pam Garrison!  Such an inspiring artist...every time I read her blog I wish that I saw the world the way that she sees full of color and design...  I am determined to finish the sampler that I have been working on this summer - a sampler that she created!

Hello to Tracy at Tied Up Memories!  I love her collage pieces!  So very beautiful.  I own two of her collage bracelets and oh how I love them!  She is another one of my internet friends (but she lives close by) and she is so of these days we are going to meet for lunch {it will happen!}!

Hello to knowing that I am not alone in this crafty/blogging world!  So glad to share it with such wonderful people. (And believe me, this is just a smattering of the people out there that I admire.)

And I am so glad to be able to share those people with you!  Trust me, this week you are definitely going to want to hang around my neck of the woods!

ps - And Hello to the 4th of July...a week of family in town from Chicago...the start of Q's dental work AND a busy week in the shop!
