First of all, I can't say thank you enough to all of you who participated in this week's Journal Day. I can't wait to spend some time this weekend visiting all of your blogs and reading what you shared. Thank you for being a part of this!
This week I have a ton of links to share, but I first wanted
to share a special bracelet from my long time blog pal Kathleen's Etsy
shop. Azadouhi Jewelry is full of beautiful jewelry handmade by Kathleen, and I was so touched to receive a bracelet and necklace from her collection. The name of her shop, Azadouhi ("Ah-zaad
oo-hee"), means free woman in Armenian- isn't that beautiful? She has
SO many amazing handmade items and I think my current favorite piece
(besides the two items I own) would be this gorgeous necklace. And even better, she's offering 20% off your order with code "sometimessweet20." Visit her shop here, and check out Azadouhi's Instagram too. Thank you Kathleen!
Some more wonderful things around the web this week:
Voting ends tonight, and I'm so close to making it to the final round. Would you mind throwing a vote my way if you're so inclined? It just takes a second. I feel silly asking, but it's a fun way to reach out and meet more readers...so why not, right? Thank you so much guys!
