do y'all know ms. amy?


I received an email from Amy quite a while ago...a year? I can't remember, but a while. She told me about herself and how she'd been reading my blog for a while, but had never commented. (amy!! shame on you ;)) And how she and I had all these similarities like homeschooling, creative creating, and junking!
Well, since that first exchange, her and I have emailed/called/texted every week AND she's started her own blog. Amy is just an all-around awesome person, and I think you should all get to know her...



She's super fun...like, they have an ice skating rink in their backyard. How fun is that?!
They live in beautiful Montana (not nearly close enough to NC) and they go on these amazing camping excursions almost every weekend in the summer.

She has FOUR little girlies...can you even imagine??!!
Look how sweet...


Amy is constantly baking with them, crafting, playing...



She also makes these adorable little blooms that you can pin or clip to pretty much anything you can think of. She sent me some for Christmas...and some for Soph too and they. are. so. cute!!


(here's mine)


And also, Amy has a spot at the antique store where she lives. So she has a booth area and she changes it out for every season. I love that! I want to buy everything in it. She adds her handmade goodness too...
Here's what her booth looks like now for Valentine's Day...


And what it looked like for Christmas...




And for fall...


I just love it! Don't you just want to shop here!?
So, this is Amy. She is fun, talented, adorable, and so genuine. I just love her. We will meet someday...we're hoping this is the year.

You must go check out her blog now...ok? Ok.



Blogging is so darn cool.

New blogging discoveries are so fun to meet. You all are so talented. I don't blog as much as I want, I find for me that I'd rather do those things I blog about instead with my kids. I am in training for the role of queen of multitasking, I'm just no there yet. Lol. Thanks for sharing new friends:)

Oh my goodness gracious! What a sweet sweet surprise! I am blushing and smiling from ear to ear. I'll be right over cuz I need to hug you. And we WILL meet in person this year, it's gonna happen. Thank you for all your sweet words. Did you know I needed that this morning? Love you friend!

I already read her blog and I think finding both of your blogs may be mixed up together somehow! I just don't remember though! I have made some great friendships through blogs as well...so glad you met a kindred spirit in Amy.

I've been following her for a while now since you gave me some suggestions a long while ago when I was hanging out in your kitchen. I just started commenting on her posts. Aren't you proud of me? ;)
