My First Giveaway and my New Etsy Shop

I am so excited to announce "My first giveaway"  to thank my first 100 followers and to introduce you to my new Etsy Shop (to view click here). Here is what I am giving away to the lucky winner. 

As you all may know I love to have a little inspirational quote after every post and in dedication to that, here is a beautiful quote so you can be inspired each and every day.

One of my favorite words of inspiration by Anaïs Nin.

How this quote came about.... 

Photo of  Anaïs Nin.
In each case there had been a long period of holding on to some pattern that had been causing me pain (usually unacknowledged). I’d been a tightly-closed bud. This was followed by a catalyzing event (in each case it involved being on retreat) in which I became fully aware of the pain I’d been causing myself. The pain of remaining closed became too much. Then there was a grand finale of emotional release and a spiritual awakening into greater wholeness and well-being. The bud opened, albeit painfully. Anaïs Nin’s quotation — “…the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” — seems to perfectly encapsulate that process.

My second item is a little more practical and ecological, but just as lovely. An Envirosax...the reusable designer bag, not just any envirosax, but one with the design of the state of ?????? yes,  you guessed it. The state where my little girls heart is. And of course the inspiration for a few of my posts. 
I never leave home without mine! very strong and sturdy.

And the 3rd item of my giveaway is from my Etsy shop. 

2 delicate napkins with a hand stitched flower in one corner.
