((a *GUSSY* feature))

Today, I had the honor of waking up to lots of new twitter followers and blog followers. I was confused at first...like...who tweeted about me & got people to follow?

Then I remembered...


Oh, that Gussy.

My favorite blog.

A huge inspiration. 

A sweet girl who has worked her butt off to quit her day job & has dominated the "handmade scene..."

and has made it look like a piece of cake. rainbow cake with sprinkles, to be exact. 


You see, she sent me some interview questions a few weeks ago for a "Quit Your Day Job" series. Today was my day...and I can't get over it. 


Can't get over the fact that I am trying this handmade thing full-time.

Can't get over the fact that I was featured on my favorite blog of all time. 

Can't get over my support system that never fails to encourage me at the right time.

Read here & be inspired. You can do this. You just have to try :)

love.

  8. I did read it and I was inspired :) As in bookmark-it-under-shop-inspiration inspired. And it's the first thing in that folder. Really though, you are a huge role model to me. Next year, my senior year of high school, I'm going to be doing part-time school work and part-time-hopefully-opening-an-Etsy shop and pouring myself into that. Sometimes the whole prospect of doing all that gets to me, and I'm all "Linley, what are you doing?!" Your blog and work is a great reminder of what hard work can do. Thanks! :)
