in the spotlight :: andrea, a blog reader and etsy customer

Andrea was my very first Etsy customer, back on June 30, 2010. I won't tell you how many more times she's ordered from me, but it's quite a few. Her very first purchase was a Summer in the Life DIY mini-album kit, and here's my very own Summer mini album below.

Here's Andrea:

Hi there Monika followers! I'm Andrea from Project Envy Girl and am so excited to guest post on iloveitall! And I'm sure I'll be preaching to the choir a bit, because we all know how inspiring Monika is - I'm just here to show you how iloveitall inspires me!

Here's a little bit about me: I'm 39 (for a few more weeks), married with 2 highly energetic and very different boys, and I have a full-time job I like to pretend I don't have - which is why you'll find me in various places masquerading as projectenvygirl. (blogger, pinteresttumblr)

I love all things aqua, inspirational quotes, getting a layout done in 15 minutes, lazy weekends, busy weekends, girl time, a good book, the beach, and the sunset from my front porch. The only thing I truly hate is laundry!

I started blogging mainly to connect with awesome scrapbookers.. then found this wonderful world of creative women and was amazed at all the "projects"! I know I'll never have the time or talent to do all the things I see online and want to try... but I love creating an ongoing on-line list of inspiration!

One of the reasons I am such a big iloveitall fan, is it saves me time! I love mini albums, but I never had the time to make them. And her prints make for easy decorating - something always pops into my head, and I think, "Monika can make that!"

Here are a few examples:
Family Rules Printables:

Halloween Printables:

Snapshots in Time album:

One Little Word custom:

Summer in the Life album:

Creativity Print:

Things we Love book:  
(this one's a work in progress)

Gratitude Print:

Custom Boys Print:

Custom Quote Print:

Custom Family Names Print:
for a gift

Here are two links to projects on my blog:

And Monika always sends free mini prints that end up on my in-progress inspiration board!

As you can see.. everytime Monika comes up with a new idea..  it usually ends up in my house. But it's great, because her creativity and my lack of time are a great combination for me. As we speak I think a package is headed my way...she made an ABC's of Me album for me - inspired by her Alphabet of our Love book.

And Andrea is giving away the print of your choice.. to one lucky winner! All you have to do is:

* become a follower of projectenvygirl - if you have a blog, leave a link :)
* leave a comment on this post telling me which iloveitall print you want
* the winner will be announced on Monday 

Thanks Monika for featuring me!!! You're the best :))
