I have some great news people! I already have another FABULOUS giveaway for you!!! Just in time for MOTHER'S DAY!!!! Yes! So soon after the Frame-Name giveaway! You should be feeling extra loved! (If you are one of the five Frame-Name winners, be sure to cash in! My dad wants to send you your prize!!!)
So here's a little back story since I LOVE back story:
(Or you can just skip right to the giveaway details.)
When I was 16, I moved with my mom from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Carlsbad, California. I (tragically) left a tight group of friends back in Salt Lake. My best friend, Ang, fortunately didn't forget about me and we stayed close despite being a few states apart. After I left, Ang did something unforeseen. She got into Ska. No, it's not some crazy illicit drug. It's a musical style. (genre?) Sort-of a mixture of Reggae and Punk and Big Band (high school band?) and abject silliness.
At some point, I think at a Ska concert, Ang met Kylie who went to another area High School and also liked Ska. (Alta? Highland?) And then at some other point, I met Kylie through Ang. I'm thinking I met her in California. But it's quite possible I met her on a visit back to S.L.C. Anyhoo...
She's a super cool girl. And she married the big brother (Jonathon who is super funny) of another friend of ours, Malia. (Who stole my Moses collage freshman year. I'm still waiting to get him back.) And we kept in touch. And whenever I threw a party with my roommates in Provo (Party-o) I invited Kylie and Jonathon to come down from Salt Lake. And they usually did.
Since I've known her, Kylie has never stopped doing artistic and creative things. First, she was in a band...(possibly still is?) Then she went to school for Graphic Design and worked as a Graphic Designer doing really super cool stuff. Then she and her cousin Shawna started their own jewelry business: Snapdragon Jewelry
I love these because a) I love black, and b) they would make a statement without being too heavy.
