Nicole Marie by Design is a shop that has it all, here is a taste of what you will find:
-premade blog designs
-custom -or- premade logos
-custom photo bottle cap necklaces
-video tutorials on everything blogging
-digital scrapbooking graphics
-original digital artwork
-printables: banners, tags, cupcake toppers and more!

Nicole is 'one of those ladies' that can do it all, not only is she a wife and mother but a graphic designer and jewelry connoisseur. She has a blog where you can check out her graphic design goodness. The Pixel Boutique, not only shows you what she has been up to{prettifying others' blogs, sites & shops} but where she shares helpful tips on how to use photoshop to enhance your images and she also helps you make sense of your blog{how to get buttons, make your pictures better & much more}.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Nicole. She made me a Custom Photo Bottle Cap Necklace. You can tell when a shop owner takes pride in what they do on not only how the final product looks, but on how they ship and send your contents. Nicole sends your items perfectly.You can buy these for your MIL's, SIL's, Sisters, Moms and have them shipped perfect for gift giving.

Nicole was very easy to work with, I was actually the one who made it a little more difficult on her. I was{am} one of those customers that you 'can't stand' because I told her I would provide the picture and let her have full range over her craft! Which turned out great if I do say so myself! When you purchase a Custom Photo Bottle Cap Necklace you get some great options on how you want your bottle cap to look.  You send your image to her and indicate if you want a colorized section which is no extra charge {flower, clothing, hat etc.} Your photo will be turned into black and white. You then get to choose from glitter colors silver, pink, purple, blue, green, light green or clear or the edges can be left plain.
The image is then cast in resin within the bottle cap and strung on a 22" .925 sterling silver ball chain. She also adheres her shop label to the back so you can share with everyone where you got your beautiful piece of jewelry!

I have gotten so many compliments on my necklace. There are so many reasons why I love it, but one of the main reasons is because there will never be another one like it! I love when you have something that people absolutely admire but can't get an exact duplicate. I chose a picture of Chucky on his first birthday because It brings back so many memories of how lucky we are to be a family{Yeah it sounds cheesy}but in reality it is what it is!

Buy it- You can purchase any or all of Nicole Marie by Design items in her Etsy Shop.

Win it-

Follower Winner!!!

When I started blogging, I didn't think anyone cared what I had to say, then I got my first follower, second, third, fourth and so on. I was blown away by others' stories and how our lives were very different and yet so much the same. I also loved the support that I received from those first followers, they had no idea who I was and yet were willing to help me and I am eternally grateful for that!! I have decided to start doing giveaway's for my blog followers, there are sooooo many blogs out there and knowing that you all chose to follow my blog means a lot to me! So as a thank you, I will be giving away a little something that I have purchased myself that I thought all of you might enjoy.
