{Three Scoops of Love} Giveaway!!

I am so excited to introduce to you one of my newest sponsors:

A little about Jamie:

"I am a mom to three girls, three year old twins and a one year old. They are my original three scoops of love. :) I am a middle school English teacher by day and a jewelry designer after everyone is in bed. I've been making things for as long as I can remember. My mom always involved me in her craft projects and I had the glue gun burns to prove it! I started making hand stamped jewelry as gifts for friends and family members. Now, my daughters love to see their names on my jewelry. It's not unusual for my twins to check to make sure I'm wearing my "Mommy necklace" before we leave the house. Most of my jewelry is made from sterling silver, but I've recently started working with some different materials such as aluminum, copper, and leather. My goal is to offer my customers jewelry that not only looks beautiful, but also has a priceless meaning behind it."

Here is a peek at some of her FaBuLouS work...

Soooo CUTE!!
