if you’re happy and you know it…

you know what makes this big ol’ blog world just a little bit smaller?
the friendships we make with other bloggers!
a couple years ago, somehow shealynn and i connected through our blogs.
that was way back before she was HUGE and known everywhere, 
and i think it may have even been before the pleated poppy was born!

it has been so fun to see her business grow and follow along with her.
her camera strap slip covers are seen everywhere and i have also had the pleasure of owning one 
– so very pretty and comfy!
in the crafting world, it is invaluable to have relationships with your peers.
we can relate on so many levels and often come against the same issues,
and its so nice to have her to talk things through with!
well, guess what!?
today is her birthday!!!
and if you didn’t know already, she is having a week of giveaways on her blog – go see if you can still enter!
but even better – she’s going to giveaway something fun for you –
actually TWO things!
1st, she’s offering all of my readers a 15% discount to her shop with coupon code SHEYBIRTHDAY
2nd, she is giving away her new strap, called the ruffled l.c.!!!
 yep, she named a strap after little old me!
awhile back i hinted to her that i’d love to see a strap that coordinated with one of my favorite zippered pouches – and she did it!
that reminds me – i need to make more of those pouches!
so go wish shey a happy birthday –
leave a message at her blog, or send her a happy birthday tweet (@sheyb)
let her know i sent you & make that girl smile!
and if you’d like to be entered to win the ruffled l.c. camera strap slipcover
just leave a birthday wish for her here, and i’ll make sure she gets them all!
happy day, my friend!
i hope you feel so blessed on your very special day!
