Today I have the wonderful Paige from Eloping Stethoscope to introduce to you. She's one of my large sponsors and has been a delight to get to know.
Plus she make the most beautiful jewellry!
Over to you Paige.
Hey everyone! I'm Paige and I blog at Eloping Stethoscope! I used to be "The Eloping Stethoscope" but like Facebook, I dropped the, the. Isn't that the way it always goes?
I thought I'd start by introducing myself with a couple of random facts.
First, I love pot roast with carrots and potatoes. Seriously, I could eat it everyday of the week and not get tired of it.
Second, I'm probably the biggest slacker of a nursing student ever. Nursing students are supposed to be analytical, attentive and super focused. If I sit in a four hour lecture class, I will start pretending I'm a seal and balancing pencils on my nose. I've also been known to spin in my chair. They really shouldn't have spinny chairs in classes.
Third, my husband is a full foot taller than me. It makes for some pretty funny kisses, pictures and hugs.
|Can you tell he just LOVES to take pictures? Haha|
Fourth, to contrast the slacker nursing student part of me, I'm in charge of the mentor program for my school. Figure that one out will ya?
Fifth, since starting nursing school, I've discovered that mentoring people is in my blood. Any ideas how to use my nursing degree for that one? Hah.
Another thing I wanted to talk about in this introduction is my new jewelry shop called Eloping Designs!
I started making jewelry a couple of years ago as a creative outlet. It really is a destressor for me. With all the analytical thinking in nursing school that makes me want to tear my brain out, I really need to exercise my right side of the brain!
I decided on jewelry making because I was always having a hard time to find bracelets that fit right with my tiny wrists, earrings that didn't hurt my ears, and necklaces that were perfect without spending a ton of money.
Then I found out my great grandmother also made jewelry and before she died, she passed on a box of the jewelry supplies she had. (She kept them in a metal tin! Typical Grandma!) It's been a joy for both me and my mom to feel like we carry a piece of my great grandmother with us when we wear the jewelry I make from her supplies!
Now, through the entire month of August, every jewelry customer is going to play the lottery! Each order is going to contain a scratch off lottery ticket that will have either no gift card or a five, ten or fifteen dollar gift card!
Also, keep a watch on my facebook because before I list items, I put a picture on my facebook. When I do that, if you are the first person you can get them at a discounted price PLUS free shipping!
So order some jewelry and try your luck!
