B L O G I V E R S A R Y + G I V E A W A Y ! *closed*

ever look back at the beginning of a journey and laugh? because no matter how long the adventure, you know more where you are now than you did back then. all journeys have trials and triumphs. you cringe at the things you failed and smile at the things you succeeded.

that's how i feel about this blogging adventure i'm on. today i'm celebrating my blogiversary - a total of 5 years of blogging! my personal blog started in october of 2008 and my design blog started in june of 2010, and over time the two morphed into this blog you're reading.

regardless of the failed posts, this blog has brought me more joy than i could ever imagine. it has helped me to grow as an artist and a designer. it has introduced me to new ideas and products. but most importantly, it has led me to some awesome people.

so to show my gratitude, i'm hosting a giveaway! these are some of my very favorite things from handmade shops, many from awesome members of the Influence Network.
