Hey all you lovely Neathering Our Fest readers! I am so excited to be guest posting on Skye's blog today. She has become such a great friend of mine and I am so blessed to have her in my life! Let me introduce myself.

hey, i'm cassie

& I blog overt at Live.Laugh.L0ve. Truly my home away from home! I am first and foremost a daughter of God. I am a momma, wife, aspiring writer and a shop owner! I believe completely in Embracing Life, inspiring others & wanting to set the world on fire by helping others, by letting God use me. :)

hey, i'm cassie

Speaking of inspiring others I want to talk to you about the items in my shop. I make inspirational hand stamped jewelry and Inspirational 8 x 10 prints. I like to think that if someone is having a bad day or maybe they are just doubting themselves. Maybe they need some inspiring words for the day -- they will look down at the necklace hanging around their neck or at their wall or desk -- and remember that they matter.

That they can live their dreams.
