AH such a cute giveaway!! I'm definitely a follower of your blog and on twitter!!

It's really hard to pick a favorite out of your etsy shop because everything is so lovely! It's a tie between the I heart honey bees dangle earrings and the black licorice scarflette!

My biggest dream is to become a makeup artist or a comic book artist. I also dream to be a college professor teaching theatre history and directing to young dramatists.

One nice thing I have done recently is to make some cupcakes for my mom and her co workers.

My tweet about your blog can be seen here

My email is

Yay!! That is 6 points total!

I absolutely adore your crocheted items (even if i don't win, i wanted to let you know)

1. reblogged this giveaway! :) yay!
2. following your blog
3. added you on facebook.
4. My favorite favorite item is the green wrap and pin scarflette ambition, is definitely to be an awesome high school art teacher, theres something that inspired me through highschool to be a teacher mainly the teachers itself. There are no words that can describe that things i learned from specific teachers throughout those 4 years, i really hope i can impact someone like that. I really hope i'm more than just a teacher.
6. hmm, one thing that i have done nice for someone is...being a listener, and truly listening to that person. and being that comforter to that friend.

whoever wins is gonna be really happy!!
