Oh me, Oh my, Oh Mandie!

I got a surprise package in the mail yesterday that has had me jumping up and down with joy all day long. I love packages. They are so much better than bills. And when the package has Oh Mandie! all over it, I know I am in for a TREAT!

I'm a huge Oh Mandie! fan. I think everyone who knows the gal, loves the gal. Last month, Amanda and I did a shop swap. She decorated her boys room with sock monkey prints and I made out like a bandit with a whole assortment of lovelies, including this pearly sparrow necklace.

Ooooh, how lovely! This necklace is just my absolute favorite. Unfortunately, I didn't have a single pair of earrings to match. Whats a girl to do?

Amanda was more than happy to make me a matching pair...but little did I know, she would surprise me with the most awesome earrings in the world.


Aren't they just the girliest, cutest earrings ever? I may only be 27, which is technically supposed to be young... but being the at-home mom of two lively and little, energy-sucking daughters has been running me ragged for the last few years and I feel old and frumpy beyond my years.

Nothing quite like a fabulous necklace and a gorgeous pair of earrings to make me feel young and fun again.

Thanks, Amanda! You have unknowingly given me my youth back!

Want to see the other Oh Mandie! items I have? Be prepared to "ooooh" and "ahhhhh."

I bought this ACEO in August, when I realized that I had spent an entire day yelling at my trouble-making little divas. I was tired and burnt out, and when I saw this I knew it would be just the thing to remind me to LAUGH instead shout.

My girls are precious and, though they drive me to insanity, I need to appreciate the funny stuff more and let the aggravating stuff just roll off me.

Here is my new sketchbook which measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and has 50 blank, unlined pages of heavy weight, hand cut Bristol Board paper -- I pretty much just copied all of that from her item description.

Here is some more copying: All of the inner bristol board paper is recycled from a local paper mill - the cuts of paper were too small for them to use, but perfectly wonderful to make journals! Helping the planet one piece of paper at a time! ♥

Whats not to love? This journal/sketchbook is the perfect thing for me to sketch out my new mini illustrations. Love it!

And these Sugar earrings are just adorable. They are as sweet as cotton candy and give my regular jeans-and-a-t-shirt look some flirty pizazz.

Be sure to visit Oh Mandie! if you haven't yet. You won't be let down!

Enjoy!

xoxo,

Oh, my goodness...I love everything pictured, especially the sketchbook. So girly and dreamy and fun.

And I have to say: Girl, there is nothing old or frumpy-looking about you!

Oh, and Hannah Ontanna? You totally should draw one of your lovely ladies and call her Anna Indiana! Lorna California? My brain is fried and sadly, I cannot think of any other states right now. :)

That necklace is positively sublime. You're hardly frumpy, my friend, but the necklace is definitely the anti-frump!
