A while ago I got an email from Kendra, who owns Belleza Mia, the Etsy shop. She was wondering if I wanted to do a product review for her jewelry. My reply?
OH HECK YES.
I was expecting her to send me 1 or 2 items.
But a few days later I opened a package and found 7 pieces of jewelry!!
(please excuse the awkward self-portraits)
In my expert opinion, this is the prettiest jewelry I own.
I get compliments every time I wear these pieces. And you guys- I live for compliments.
Also? Her prices are awesome. You should probably go buy some.
I asked Kendra to tell us a little bit about herself, and her shop:
My name is Kendra and I'm a craftaholic. I love to create because, to me, one of greatest feelings in the world is creating something amazing out of something ordinary. Also, it is my form of therapy and it keeps me sane.
I am a mother of an almost three year old boy who makes me laugh constantly, and a one year old boy who lights up a room with his infectious smile.
I am also married to the greatest guy in the world who is extremely supportive and encouraging. I'd be lost without him, both physically and figuratively speaking.
Currently I do a little work for a law firm from home and am doing my very last class to finish my undergraduate degree, but most of the time I am home with the kiddos.
Ever since I was little I have loved making things with my hands. I have dabbled in just about everything from jewelry making (way back in Jr High!), painting, clothing construction, quilting, scrapbooking.... and if I haven't tried something yet, I'm sure it's on my list of things I want to do.
Currently I am VERY into jewelry making again and have my own shop, Belleza Mia, which means 'my beauty' in Spanish. I named it this because 1) I speak fluent Spanish having served a mission for my church in Bolivia and 2) I believe that every woman is beautiful in there own way. And to me to me, I can feel that beauty come out just a little when I am wearing a sparkly necklace or fun pair of earrings.
I started my blog On My Side of the Room because I would make something and people would keep asking me how to make it, so to save time, and remember my ideas as well as the things I wanted to do, I started my blog!
The reason my blog is called "On My Side of the Room" is because that's what my craft room is, half craft room for me and half office for my husband.
One day I'll have my own room but until then I'm makin' it work!
Thanks Kendra! I've loved getting to know you a little bit better.
And now, guess what?
