Morning peeps,

When I started Daisy & June a while ago I didn’t really know what I was getting into. I just knew I wanted to make stuff. I wanted to be crafty and share my crafts with others. I would send my packages out just wrapped in tissue in a boring yellow envelope. Packaging never really came to mind until one day I ordered fabric from an Etsy shop. It was just a few yards of fabric but the way it was packaged was so impressive and it really changed my entire outlook on the whole concept of packaging.

I tried for the longest time thinking of what would be my perfect packaging. Maybe I over thought it who knows but I have finally picked out and ordered everything needed to make the perfect impression on my customers.

So from now on when an item is ordered from my shop they will be come in a pretty brown envelope(recycled) and wrapped in white tissue. Each item is wrapped with these gorgeous twine strings…

And each package has this adorable thank you note attached to it….

Cute right? I found some other cute things for packaging,  I thought I would share some of my favorites…

Morning everyone! Busy busy today working on the final stretch of Very Jan today but I wanted to post real quick about real friends.

I’m sure you have friends, friends of different levels. The friend that makes you laugh, the one who gives the best advice or the one who is your go to party planner. My circle of friends is tight knit. We have a baker, a giver, a gossip, a comedian, and a mother hen…we are all completely different but yet each day we keep each other company and make each other laugh and care for each other.

One of the friends in my circle has really become my closest friend period. She is the giver. She is a true good soul. She constantly worries about others – people she doesn’t even know and blesses their lives with her happiness and generosity. She doesn’t ever ask for anything in return even though she deserves it. She loves freely and openly and is a truly positive person. She is the kind of person who uses what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger as her daily motto.

I love this woman. Being friends with her has really brightened my life. We are from such different places in life. Yet being friends with her comes so naturally.

Just this week she saved the day twice for me and this morning called me at 9am to ask me Daisy’s shirt size cause she was out at a yard sale LOL. A while back I bought her this necklace, a gorgeous birds nest with a single egg(she has one child), thinking back on it now I wish I had gotten her one with a pile of eggs as she treats all of us as her family and cares for all of our kids like they are her own. My children love her so much and they can’t go a day without asking if we are going to see her.

Today I am grateful. Grateful to have a friend like her in my life. Her positivity keeps me going through the most stressful of days. I hope everyone is blessed to have a friend like her in their lives. If you do have a friend like this, make sure you tell them how much you appreciate everything they bring to your life! Friends like this are far and few in between and should be cherished!

Ok peeps that’s my peace on good friends!

A little Giveaway business before we get to our amazing hostess for the day….

The winner of the You Can’t do Everything Giveaway:

Rachel DeVaughn

“You can do anything but not everything” and list one way you are going to cut yourself a little slack today and everyday:

I am not going to freak out if I can’t get caught up with my scrapbooking albums by the end of the year. I will do a little at a time instead of thinking of a huge looming project in front of me!

Winner of the Flaws are Beautiful Giveaway:

Misty O’Brien

I have had 3 boys (all 10lbs) and 3 c-sections. I will always have that leftover “shelf” no matter how small it may ever get to be. However, I pay no attention to it anymore :) Heck, the first thing I do when I get home and relax is peel off my clothes down to my skivvies and parade around the house, showing off that proud momma leftover belly. Doing this has made me comfortable in my own skin. Thank you for sharing your story and making it relatable to other mommas out there. We appreciate it!

email me at DaisyandJuneshoppe@gmail.com for your information!

Thanks for playing along everyone! Now lets get to know Amie…

Hi. I’m Amie. I blog over at {Kitty Cats and Airplanes}. Sometimes I blog about crafting (my main passion, besides cats), sometimes I blog about my life. Sometimes, I don’t even blog! My life can be a whirlwind sometimes. I also have an Esty {shop} by the same name. That’s how Kathy and I “met.”

To be honest, I had a little trouble with the concept of “Love Thyself.” I battle a fun little disease called major depression, and I can be more than a little hard on myself at times.

“I am such a bad wife.”

“I am the worst business woman in the world.”

“I can’t even take care of myself, how will I ever be a good mom someday?”

“Ack, I’ve gained weight. Just go running you lazy butt!”

And so on, and so on, and so on. It can be crippling; the self doubt, the guilt, the physical and emotional pain. Haunting my every thought, paralyzing me like a helpless child. Burrowing me into a hole I feel I can never climb out of. I would desperately claw at freedom. Buying things I thought would make me happy with money I didn’t have. Pushing the hurt onto my poor husband in attempts to relieve myself of it. Physically trying to “cut” the pain out of the very veins. Anything, anything to get me out of my head, to make the pain stop.

In a perfect world, none of these ailments would plague me. I would be free and unspotted from the world. But then again, what’s the point of a perfect world? Isn’t our whole existence based on growing and learning and discovering ourselves? To enjoy our lives and fulfill them as best we can. Our lives are a precious gift, as is every moment we are blessed with. How easy it is to forget that, to forget how blessed we are.

It is opposition that makes is strong. You’ve got to be sick to appreciate your health. You’ve got to be sad to appreciate your happiness. And you’ve got to face adversities to appreciate your bounty of blessings. Weak things CAN become strong.
If there is one thing I believe in, it is that you can handle anything that is thrown at you. Anything. Sure, in my darkest days and most painful moments, I would call you a fool for saying such things. However, deep in the very fibers of my soul, I know that I can do it. I would not have been given this life if I couldn’t handle it, I was given this life because I was strong enough to take it on. This life I have been blessed with is to make be a better person. My weaknesses can become my strengths.
Of course, that doesn’t mean I’ll always handle it in the best way. Oh no, I’ll screw up. I do screw up. I miss deadlines, I have bad days, I say things I regret, I let people down, and I don’t always seize every moment to be happy. But that, under no circumstances, makes me a failure. As long as I learn from my mistakes, I can pick myself up, dust myself off, and stand back up. (Even though sometimes it takes me a few days to do the dusting and picking up.) I truly believe that with every step you take to fight against your weaknesses, you are one step closer to making those weaknesses your strengths.
I wish to give you a flower. A sunshine yellow peony, forever in bloom, to remind you that you CAN do this. You can handle anything, and you can make your weaknesses your strengths. If you would like this little reminder, you can enter the giveaway by any of the following methods.
  • Follow my blog, {Kitty Cats and Airplanes}
  • Like my facebook page {here}
  • Heart my Etsy shop {here}
  • Tell your friends, by means of facebook, blogging, and/or tweeting. {One entry for each}
  • Like the Daisy & June FB Page here
None of them are mandatory, but you must do at least one to enter. Please leave a separate comment for each qualifying entry. You have until Saturday Night at 10pm CST to enter!
Thank you Kathy, for inviting me to share my thoughts. Have a blessed day!

I am not a fan of Spring forward or Fall back for that matter. Losing an hour , gaining one, it’s all the same to me. My kids have these super human internal clocks and wake up the same time no matter what.  Fall of Spring the time change never seems to bother them. They are up a sunny 6am – 6am. Not 6am the new time either. I can’t remember the last time I was like wahoooo I am getting an extra hour of sleep tomorrow…nope not in my house. My lovely munchkins compensate the hour but waking up extra extra early.

 

Any who that’s my gripe for the day LOL. This morning while injecting my first cup of coffee I spied this “pinteresting” little app on Facebook.

Pinpuff Its basically a popularity test for Pinterest. Its pretty interesting to see how you rate as far as repins and followers.

So how did I stack up?

My overall score:

Perfect! Your Pinfluence Score is 48.23.

They then break it down a bit further for you…

Value of Pins & Referral Traffic

Pin Worth(Ecom) Pin Worth(Gen) Cost per click
$1.03 $0.52 $0.15

Reach Score

40.8
You have above average following on Pinterest and can easily be improved further.

Activity Score

80
Great!! You are very active on Pinterest – perfect choice for Brands on Pinterest.

Virality Score

16.8
Virality score is very low. How about trying better Board names or Pin titles?

Hmmm guess I need to work on the board names and I do have this horrible habit of not putting anything in my comment box which does cut down on my pins showing up in searches.

 

So whats your Pinpuff score?

 

Remember today is the last day to enter to win 50$ bucks to Daisy & June! Come back tomorrow to see the winners and to meet our next guest blogger in the Love Thyself series!

 

Have a great Sunday!
