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 quick note before we get to our amazing post for the day…
Rachel(Pretty in Green) is going to give her kit away to everyone who commented on her post. Please email me at daisyandjuneshoppe@gmail.com to receive your code.
Hi ladies I am so happy to be hear today to talk about my flaws!
I want to thank Kathy for letting me do this, she is a sweet heart.
Before we talk about my flaw, I would like you to get to know me a little bit.
My name is Cerrisse I am a 26 year old stay at home mom to the cutest bundle of energy son Jaxon.
 I married my high school sweetheart Curtis who is my support and my rock! I don’t know what I would do without him.
I am loving staying at home with my son, it gives me the chance to blog and work on my online business. Me and my mom started our little business in September of last year. We are loving it! and are starting to pick up. We make necklaces, headbands, and hand stamped jewelry. If you ever want to come and take a look head on over to our shop and take a look at our blog .
Our shop is a little bare at the moment, we are moving to a new shop this month with our brand new spring line!!! so excited 🙂
So lets get down and dirty and talk about my flaw. When Kathy asked me to talk about my flaw I didn’t know which one to choose…YES I have more than one. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to talk about a non physical flaw or physical. But then I asked myself what flaw do I have that bugs me the most? Well that was easy….
Big pregnant with my son at 38 weeks
You are bound to end up with this….
Now some of you are thinking “it’s not that bad” but to me it is.
This is something I have to deal with everyday. Sure I could be a crazy work out machine and get this to go away, I could eat better…so on and so on. I do what I can with the time and resources I have. But whatever I do this “flab” will not go away.
I get asked all the time “when are you due” that is the worst!!!!
Sometimes I compare myself to other women who shrink back down after they have babies. Like my sister she is thinner than she was before she had her baby. But you know what she did get?….she got really bad stretch marks. That made me think, every woman is flawed. We all have something even if you are the skinniest most gorgeous woman ever…right?
We just have to embrace our flaws and know we are beautiful, that is what makes us happy.
 I know I wont have this “flab” forever, and I shouldn’t get down on myself or be self conscious about it. There are more important things in life. It’s time for me to wear that bikini and own my body, be proud of it! No matter who is looking and judging because I can be a judge too!
So own your body because it is beautiful!
We all have flaws, I have to remind myself of that everyday.
So in light of this post I wanted to give you the chance to win something from my shop. Nothing more appropriate than this necklace
You can win this “I am beautiful” hand stamped necklace.
Just answer this question:
What flaws make you…you? and how do you deal with them?
To enter:
-Comment to the question below
-Like my shop on Fb.
That is it! You have until 9pm CST tomorrow to enter! Winner will be announced Friday morning 🙂
Thank you for letting me share something so personal and revealing with you guys.
There is still time to enter to win the 8×10 Print from yesterdays post as well!

You get up in the morning, rush around for 30 mins, shuffle the kids to school, hit the bank, the post office and then the grocery store. You get home, unload everything start the laundry, let the dog out. You check your email you get your work done, finish the housework – at this point you feel like a super star. You can literally hear your super hero cape blowing int he wind.  You head to the school to pick up your kids and see that your adorable son has his shirt on backwards and he has had it that way ALL day.

*hand smacks head*

This is the story of my life. I try to do it all. I try to hold down to businesses, I take care of my kids the best I can, love my husband with my whole heart and take care of myself but things fall through the cracks.I try to deny that I can’t do it all. Its a simple solution of time management right?

WRONG.

As women I think we all feel the pressure to be it all. We are constantly faced with criticism, they way we raise our kids, or live our lives are always under a microscope. You don’t hear of men being beat up on themselves that way very often. The saddest part of it all – its usually women who beat up on women. Whats up with that ladies??? Why do we put each other down like that? Why can’t we begin to pick each other up on a daily basis?

Well that battle has been long standing and probably will for a long time. So lets start small. Lets start on the individual basis with this simple reminder…

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING BUT YOU CAN”T DO EVERYTHING

and that is OK! Stop putting so much pressure on yourselves to be perfect.Why do that to yourself?

Today I am hosting a little giveaway!

I bought a special art print just for this day.

This gorgeous chalkboard 8x 10 print can be yours! Simply reply to this post pledging to yourself “You can do anything but not everything” and list one way you are going to cut yourself a little slack today and everyday 🙂

You have till tomorrow at 9pm CST to enter.

Hey bloggers scrapers and crafters, I’m Rachel the digital scrapbook designer behind Pretty in Green, you’ll find my designs at Ginger Scraps. I also love to bake and sew, altho I seem to be working with digital more often these days… I like the Undo button, lol… I am one of the many fans of Modern June and follow all of her posts and drool over her talent. So I just had to jump at the chance to be apart of this. I am a wife and stay at home mom to two little kidos Gage-6, and Ana-3. We as women and moms have been surround by unreal expectations for ourselves, from super models to “super moms” but I believe as long as your a good mom and love them with all your heart and feel good about yourself nothing else should matter. Yes I will admit, my house isn’t perfect heck as I write this post the kids rooms are a disaster area, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love and care for my children.

I swear her room was clean last week!

And I will admit, for long time I hated my freckles, I’m too short, my belly is a little squishy thanks to mother hood and my breasts are not to standerd size, lol. BUT these “imperfections” are what make me, me. When I was in high school I had a multitude of teen magazines of course filled with beautiful young women, but one day I happened upon a fashion spread with a unique beauty, she was fair skinned freckled and had light strawberry blond hair. From that moment on I could see beauty is not a standered it is uniqueness it was having that something special that no one else had. So what if I’m not a size two, have flawless skin, or a perfect hourglass figure, I know I am beautiful because of who I am inside and because I am who I’m meant to be, surrounded by my beautiful kids and loving husband. What’s that saying… God broke the mold when he made me!
Photobucket
So whats is that something special I feel makes me a Unique beauty, even as I write this it’s hard to think that’s beautiful, but I believe it’s my “big” nose… yes I know silly right, I’ve stared in the mirror more than a few times thinking about what I would look like with out such a prominent nose, but really I love my eyes, they sparkle when I’m happy, and change from blue to green, and with out my nose I just think my face would look off, and then my eyes wouldn’t look right, or natural. so that is my unique beauty, and its me.

Photobucket

So I’d like to hear about what makes you a Unique Beauty, what do you love or kinda love about your body that isn’t exactly the “norm” as society sees it. I will pick 5 random comments here to win a free copy of my newest, not yet released kit called “I am Beautiful” the winners will be picked on 3/14.
Photobucket

I hope you all feel Beautiful in your own skin. Don’t let anyone or anything bring you down, you are beautiful.

Hello peeps, a little late night post to announce the random winner from this weekend!

The Winner is:

Demetria

I really love necklace sets… I like to get unique pieces that have matching earrings. Lots of my jewelry have wings and words on them. They just express me and that’s why the light me up. An inward expression on the outside makes me feel good and hopefully will also make someone else feel good too.

thanks for the chance!

Congrats girlie!!
