After losing 112 pounds in almost a year and a half, I have come to realize how very much I was missing. I may be Late to the Party, but I am doing my best to catch up in my own unique way!

Big News! And Shameless Self Promotion

Just have to share - First, for those of you who didn't know, I was contacted about 6 weeks ago by the owner/writer for the blog Beantown Bride.... a very legit, influential and prestigious wedding blog that features real life weddings, venues and vendors in the state of Massachusetts - mostly Boston (thus Beantown). She had been on Etsy and had been exploring different shops. She asked if she could feature my shamrock tile magnet wedding favors that I sell on my Etsy shop, The Celtic Heart.

Since Boston and Massachusetts are IRISH to their core, I jumped at the chance! I sent her pics and a little write up about why I create Celtic wedding things to sell. We have been corresponding off and on since then. Well, today is the BIG day! She has featured the magnet tiles on the Beantown Bride and I am giving away 50 of them to some lucky bride! As you can imagine, I am ready to jump out of my skin!!! The Celtic Heart has been picked up by a big blog and promoted on the site. You can see here: http://beantownbride.com/blog/wedding-favor-giveaway-massachusetts-brides-hand-stamped-shamrock-tile-magnets

 Unbelievable! You will see my feature about mid-way down the page, so scroll down. While you are there on her blog, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on PRESS and you can see where she has been featured in different online wedding sites (the really 2 BIG ones) and other wedding sources and newspapers. I'll keep you posted as to who wins and the results!
