Hey there, party people! I recently participated in a super-duper-fun swap hosted by Yellow Heart Art and Much Love, Illy. I was lucky enough to be paired up with another Amy who happens to also live here in sunny Florida! Part of the swap included filling out a little form reminiscing about summers past and naming our summer crush. When I saw that Amy & I both were head over heels in love with Joey McIntyre of NKOTB fame, I knew I liked this girl. Especially since we are both happily married and won't have to fight over who actually gets to be Joey Joe's one true love. Before I show you what Amy sent me for the swap, let's take this opportunity to stroll down memory lane. Back to the late 80's, back to the days when the New Kids ruled my world and covered every square inch of my bedroom walls...

Okay, enough of that. Hope you enjoyed that glimpse back into the best days of my childhood. In case you're wondering if I went to see NKOTB on their comeback tour, of course I did. And it turns out the other Amy did, too. I'll be loving you for ever, New Kids, because...you got it..the right stuff. Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Now, here's what Amy sent me:
Hellllooo, fun summer jewelry! I just had to use this paint sample card in the background, as the color chosen for my shop walls happens to coordinate so well with my new arm candy. Amy wrote that she was 'no pro' but I think she did an ah-may-zing job making these three bracelets! Thanks, girl! Learn all about Amy's crafty and motherly adventures on her blog, Buggie and Jellybean. Oh! I forgot to snap a picture of the handmade gift bag my goodies came in, but Amy posted a pic on Instagram.
