About Me

I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

Completely Shameless...

You may have already noticed, but there has been a new addition to the sidebar of my blog (look directly to the left of what you're reading right now).  And you may say, "What are those little zebra print squares???"  Well, I'll tell you...they are listings in my Etsy shop.

Yes, I opened an Etsy shop, and yes, by completely shameless (the title of this post) I'm meant I am going to be completely shameless and plug my Etsy shop in my blog.  Hey, it's my blog, I can do what I want!

I officially started it last Thursday!  The zebra print blocks have some basic info on different products that I could custom make for people.  Within the actual listings some have more pictures and others don't (yet).  And I've had 2 sales already!  Woot, woot!

Now, you may be saying to yourself, "Mandamack, if you've already had sales, why are you shamelessly plugging your shop on your blog?"  Well that's because, obviously, I would like to have more sales, haha.  Not necessarily from you specifically, but maybe your friends, family, your blog readers.  Don't get me wrong, I would love to help personalize each of my readers' weddings/other events (if you're planning a baby shower I would love you forever if you ordered something from me - one of my BMs just had a baby and I keep making her cards because all the baby related stuff in scrapbooking/papercrafting is so effing adorable) but I understand my niche may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Also, I would love if you would review my shop for me.  How are my descriptions/titles/etc?  Should I add more listings?  Any advice you have for me would be greatly appreciated!  And, if you leave advice/reviews for my shop here on my blog and decide that you would like to order something from me I'll even give you 10% off your first purchase.  Considering I'm keeping my prices pretty low to begin with, 10% off is huge!

Thank you for putting up with my little personal publicity stunt, and seriously you would totally earn a gold star in my book if you would review my shop... Amanda Glenn Designs, Etc.

  4. I've been waiiiiting for you to do this! I will absolutely be recommending you to my engaged friends!

  5. Saying I do - your comment just totally made my day! Thanks!!!
