Amaze me August #23 ~~ LUXE BLVD new sponsor, and GIVEAWAY~~

Stephanie has generously offered you a choice to go shopping at Luxe Blvd. Instead of being tied down to one item, she decided to give the LUCKY winner $20.00 credit to buy anything in her shop.

HURRY and enter to win, this giveaway ends 2/15.

Oh, how I adore blogging, have I ever mentioned that before? I do, I've been so lucky to make so many friends, none of which I would have EVER gotten to know had it not been for this wonderful community, we call blogworld.

Today I am so thrilled to introduce you guys to a chick (he he) I met a while back, when I entered a giveaway to win one of her beauties. I really loved her blog, and her ETSY shop. 

Let me tell you since chatting with Steph, I have learned more and more about her. I kinda know her music taste, because of the fun party she throws, THROWBACK THURSDAYS. I also learned that she has self published a book, and is working on her second. Totally awesome right? She's crafty, and smart, and I'm happy to call her my friend. 

Check out this awesome rosette bouquet that started it all. 

She is super generous, and is right there checking up on me all the time, leaving the sweetest comments. I have truly enjoyed getting to know her, and NOW you all can get to know her a bit more. She is our newest sponsor here at BELLA BEFORE AND AFTER, and I couldn't be happier. 

Take it away Stephanie!!!

I'm Stephanie. I'm creator/owner/operator of Luxe Boulevard. How cool, I'm being featured on Bella Before and After! How honoring she accepted my request to sponsor BB&A. With so many blogs out there, many have to pick and choose who they feel are the "right fit" for their blogs. I'm thrilled Bella feels Luxe Boulevard is.
In a nut shell, I'm married with three little bambinos to chase around: one boy and two girls.The hubster and I live in Colorado. Luxe came to me after so many friends encouraged me to sell the things I made. I'm always wanting to try new things, see what I can make. My husband once called it a "sickness." Back in August I made fabric flower bouquets and matching headbands for my friends' wedding. Long story short, she ended up having her wedding within two weeks. Seven bouquets and seven headbands in two weeks... GOLLY! But I did it, and everyone loved what I did so much, to which I was thrilled, and that very special bride sat me down and, for the umpteenth time, told me sincerely, "I really think you should start your own business." I thought on that for the next month, then decided to launch Luxe Boulevard. I'm an accessories junkie, so that is my target. LOTS and LOTS of accessories!
I hope you love what Luxe has to offer. It's my fun place--my little escape! Thanks for this opportunity, Bella. See you all over at the LB!

This headband is just one of the things you can find in here shop.
Wouldn't this be perfect with anything from jeans, to a night out?

My photo
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
