amye123 giveaway {jan 24- jan 30th}

You can thank me in the comments for this giveaway ;-)

During my search for fun eclectic thingies for my family photo wall, I came
across amye123.
Me lovey lovey lovey.

I made a purchase and you know me, I had to ask if she would
like to host a giveaway.
And as you can figure by the post she said "HECK NO",
psych.
I kid, she was SO game.

Here is a little somthin' about Amy {we both conquer Amy's rock}.
{excerpts, read full interview here}

Hello! My name is Amy of amye123. I live in Mauldin, SC with my 5 year old son, Harper. I love light, bright colors, front porches, daisies, old barns, paint on my hands and time with Harper.

Describe a "typical day"~
I'm not sure I've ever had a typical day. I am an awful grouch in the mornings. Harper usually wakes me with the "Good Morning Song". Then I stumble to the coffee maker and wonder why it hates me. (Everything seems so much more difficult in the morning.) Next, I make breakfast and Harper and I shake off our sleepy cobwebs. Harp and I usually spend our mornings together so my work day doesn't officially begin until after lunch when he takes a nap. I then check my convos, paint, take pictures, package... whatever is called for that day.

What do you want life to look like in a year~
In a year... I hope I'm happy. I hope Harper is happy and healthy. I hope my family is strong. I really hope I can hire an assistant because packaging tape is my mortal enemy. I would like to be be brave enough to introduce some of my illustrations. An awesome barn for a studio wouldn't suck. Other than that, life is pretty good and I don't want to be greedy with my wishes.

My package arrived yesterday, and it took every ounce of my patience not to tear
into it the minute it landed on my front porch.

I just now finished opening it, oh it was Christmas in January.
I plan on posting more this week with pictures of my wall.
But Amy's comment above about packaging tape CRACKED me up, since
my box had about enough to safely package my whole house up and ship to India in one piece.
Hi-larry-us.

Ok back to the giveaway.
Who wants to win a $50 store cred to amye123?!!

your mortal enemy?!

Good luck bloggie friends.

My enemy would have to be BEES! Wasps, hornets, yellow jackets...anything that buzzes and can sting me I HATE! When someone tells me "they're more scared of you than you are of them" I want to scream. I can't sting them and make them swell up like a little puffer fish! Phew. THanks for letting me get that off my chest...and for the awesome giveaway!:-)

The secret garden ornate frame is fantastic and would be the perfect addition to my little girls' room.

Spiders are my mortal enemy. I'm not looking forward to spring for that reason.

Kelli Blinn said...

My mortal enemy (its hard to choose just one of those too, actually) would have to be cats. I know its a fave pet of many, but the freak me out and the thought of them walking around in their litter boxes is just gross!

leemeandthegirls said...

Victoria said...

victoria.swingler@gmail.com

Ariella said...

Love the Infinity Frame.

Ariella said...

I'd have to agree with Emily who said the alarm clock. Although I'm getting really good at ignoring it...which isn't such a good thing.

The Kastens said...

My mortal enemies are roaches. Not any roaches, specifically the ones that live in FL. They are HUGE they fly, and they always sneak their little way in! yuck!

The Kastens said...

My favorite item is the happy wall frame collection!

Imawesomexoo said...

Mortal enemy -- the dirty dishes!

Lily's Mommy said...

I really love the Happy Yellow Flower Bowl. It is so cute and would be wonderful in my kitchen this summer. So pretty and simplistic.

Lily's Mommy said...

The wall garden flowers are super sweet as well. Such cute items on her site.

A Few of My Favorite Things said...

A Few of My Favorite Things said...

My mortal enemy? Dust! As soon as I get rid of it, it comes right back! GRRRRR!

Melissa said...

Love everything in Amy's shop, but really adore the Happy Wall frame collection. You can simply be nothing but happy looking at those bright colors!

Melissa said...

My mortal enemy would definitely be my "junk" drawer. It's only a drawer but seems to be a black whole. I put things there so that I can easily find them when needed; however, I usually end up flustered and frustrated because everything is a tangled mess! Arrr, lol!

jeremyndelila@hotmail.com said...

love the gypsy circus collection for the kids room. id put pictures of them making funny faces in them. lol.

Jeremyndelila@hotmail.com said...

my mortal enemy would be my husbands "piles" that he leaves EVERYWHERE around the house. a shirt here, shoes there, computer over there, work papers... URGH! lol
