Who loves purple?!? I know it's my favorite color. Not only do I love to use the color in my card creations but I also tend to buy purple items, wear purple clothes, and eat purple food! Ok, maybe not all the time but purple is a pretty color, I just get carried away with it at time.

Some of my favorite purple items include but are not limited to:

Purple Roses Orchids Wine Grapes Slippers Lilacs Anything purple in my closet to wear Amethysts Purple Hearts Lavendar Pansys + so much more!

In my shop I have a few cards featuring all different shades of purple: Lavender, lilac, violet, grape, light purple, dark purple, orchid the list could go on!

~And the Giveaway Winner Is...~

My first blog giveaway has come to an official end and I'm proud to announce the lucky winner, Stacy!

Here is Stacy's winning comment:

"Wow..It is such a toss up between Christmas and Thanksgiving for me...But I think I would say Thanksgiving. It is a time my whole life that we would travel up to my grandparents house and have the house crammed full of people! It was always a fun trip to travel to go see them! I loved it! Now that my grandparents are getting older I treasure every Thanksgiving I get to spend with them! I also just love Autumn...all the smells, and decorations! I'm so ready for it to be here!"

Stacy has an adorable shop on etsy.com so please stop by and check out Gracious Creations. If you are looking for the perfect baby gift look no further!

~Etsy Bloggers Team Blog Carnival~

Recently I joined the EstyBloggers Street Team. It's been a great way for me to meet etsy sellers and also to promote buying handmade!

Every month the EtsyBloggers Street Team has a blog carnival. Not sure what a blog carnival is? That's ok! I had no idea what one was until I joined this fabulous blogger team.

According to http://www.wikipedia.org/ a blog carnival definition is as follows:

"A blog carnival is a type of blog event. It is similar to a magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic, and is published on a regular schedule, often weekly or monthly. Each edition of a blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains permalinks to other blog articles on the particular topic."
