April Thank You's


As the month of April winds down, we'd like to thank all of the friendly folks that sponsored our blog this past month!



Amanda's personalized, hand-stamped jewelry would make great gifts for children, friends, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, teachers, tutors, sisters, brothers, Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas and everyone in between! Oh, and if you don't see a design you're looking for on her website, you can contact her at queenbeedesigns@cox.net to talk with her about making you your own custom piece!
(PS- She's still accepting orders for Mother's Day until Wednesday, April 28th!)
