So what are the benefits of having a blogger friend?

Meeting other bloggers is absolutely one of the fabulous parts of this job. On occassion you meet some a-hole, that you totally want to throw old yucky yellow paint on, but for themost part we are all family and we love each other.

People usually ask how do you know so and so, or where did you meet. Funny part is that I have never met Rocquelle (style blogger) from ConsiderMeLuvly

. Our bond is strictly via twitter and blogging. I couldn’t even tell you how I found her or how she found me. How cool is that? To some this may sound a bit creepy but to bloggers … social networking is a blessing. It has introduced to me to whole clan of amazing folks that otherwise I would have never known.

So what are the benefits of having a blogger friend.

They send you cool DIY stuff in the mail. It came last week as a late birthday present early Christmas present. I offered to pay for her DIY talents but Rocquelle declined. I made sure I kept the address so that I can send her something back! Have a looksee at what she made me!


How freaking cute is this box? I made sure to take a picture of it because I am horrible at making bows. This one was perfection.


She even enclosed a card. And peep the polka dot paper! I saved it for my posts background.


She hand wrote a message inside. Oh how I am a sucka for that. Its a great way to show someone you care. She wrote a disclaimer about the bracelet she made and joked about her horrible handwritting.


Hope and Dream. Perfect to wear around my wrist as I reminder of my hustle.




Amazing right. I’m sending huge virtual XOXO’s to Rocquelle. I know she’s reading this because we’re bloggeristas. Make sure you check out her blog

too. She has crazy style, and totally inspires me to do more DIY!

(BTW this is my 500th post

    Aww, this is SO true! My blogging BFF is The Stylish Housewife…even though we live on different coasts, I know we will be friends for life (though we’ve never met face-to-face). Definitely one of the best parts of blogging!
