Giveaway! Celebrating Wanderlust

For over a year now I’ve been embracing my wanderlust and inner adventurer here in my blog. I thought it was about time to celebrate the adventurer in all of you too! So today I’m giving away a couple of items I found in Etsy shops that also embrace wanderlust.

First, this beautiful aluminum cuff by Grey Elephant Jewelry.

il_570xN.393593807_ffbfThis piece was designed by Kelley Delaney who has a whole collection of inspiring pieces. Here’s a little more about her:

“Hi, there! I’m Kelley, the girl behind Grey Elephant Jewelry! GEJ opened in 2011 and provides simple, timeless pieces that are inspired by my own wanderlust & quotes that mean something to me. I do custom orders like they’re going out of style and am constantly amazed and inspired by the ideas of my customers. Jewelry making is therapeutic and forces you to think creatively. I’m grateful every day to call this my job!”

The second thing I’m giving away is this small leather bound journal from in blue. It reads “Not all who wander are lost.”

il_570xN.277777691Here’s a bit about the creator of this journal, Mary Lynn Schroeder:

“My name is Mary Lynn, I came from a small farm in Southern Illinois to the beautiful city of Asheville, North Carolina. I cut, sew, and print leather every single day… I am most excited by color and texture, along with the reckless abandonment of the thimble.”

Thanks to these two lovely ladies for creating such great pieces that celebrate the spirit of adventure.

Freshly Pressed!

Well there was an absolutely thrilling surprise in my inbox yesterday…in the form of a notification that I was Freshly Pressed!

So, I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who stopped by yesterday with comments and likes, and give a warm welcome to all my new subscribers.  I got a full day of great feedback and even suggestions on how to accomplish some of my incomplete resolutions and they continue to come in.

I never imagined when I started that this blog would get out to many more people than my facebook friends but now that it has I am ecstatic about the possibilities!

I spent all day smiling like a goofball every time my phone would ding with a new comment. Hah.  I also go a lot of notes from others about how they’d been inspired to try some of these resolutions themselves.  I would love to hear/see when you do, I’ll even share them on the blog if you’d like.  🙂  It’s inspiring to do these things myself, but even more inspiring to inspire others.

So, again, thank you thank you, and thank you.
