God Made You Special


In yesterday's post, I promised to share more information with you about U*R*Unique, the hand crafted jewelery and accessory shop owned by my friend Amy Humphrey.

When Amy asked me to visit her on-line shop, I eagerly clicked the link she provided. Some gals like shoes, some like purses, and some like jewelry. I'm a jewelry girl. You can take a simple shirt, add a snazzy necklace, and lo' and behold, you're a knock-out.

Not only did my mouth drop open when I viewed Amy's beautiful collection, tears formed in my eyes when I noticed that her business is also a mission. The image on the left comes from the first page of her site.

Amy does more than design quality, one-of-a-kind jewelry for women, she encourages women, and uplifts them with Biblical truth.

Here is a message from Amy:

"I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of two little girls ages 5 1/2 and 2 1/2. As a child, I was always interested in anything art-related. I took every art class available in school, including a jewelry class in high school, and then went on to be an art major in college. A few years ago I decided to pursue jewelry-making, as time and money permitted. After making a few pieces and receiving much encouragement from friends, through their kind words and purchases, I decided to choose a name and vision for my budding business. At the time, I also had an increasing burden to encourage women, dispelling the lies of the enemy with the truth of God's Word. That's when the idea came about to create a website through which I could sell my jewelry and encourage women at the same time."

Isn't that great? Here are a few samples from her collection.
Pro-Life Bracelet

Those are just a few of my favorite pieces. There is much more on her site.
Now for the contest. Here's how it works.

Next week, Monday-Thursday, I am going to post a series of advice letters to my younger self. On the last day of the series, everyone who comments on letter number four is eligible to win a bookmark like the one pictured below (There are many to choose from however, and this contest is winner's choice).

For additional entries, write your own Letter to the Younger You with a link to my site and U*R*Unique. You can post the letter any time next Monday-Thursday. Commenting on Previous posts will increase your chances as well and I'll explain that next week.

When you make the pancakes...just make them like normal. After, they are done..I cut them with the cookie cutter on a plate!!! It does have some waste, though!
