Hey Lovelies!!! It's FRIDAY!!!!! Woohoo!!! I can't tell you how much your comments and messages to me regarding my "On God's Perfect Timing" post mean to me! I love to hear your stories! It is amazing how much we can all relate to each other in some ways and how much we can encourage each other as well!

This week has been crazy here! Lots of late night working in the craft suite for moi, Reagan stuck a rock up her nose (really?!!! I'm still not over it! She is a nut!), Teddy is having bad dreams and up a bunch at night, my neighbors are ridic...It is so glamorous here!! Ha!!! I am so excited that I shipped out the giveaway winners' prizes! Yay! I can't wait to hear that you all received your goodies!

Also, this has been an extra extra sparkly week in the presidential house! I have been making lots of glitter wineglasses! Yay! I will be doing a flash sale next week to sell them, finally! If you don't want to wait to purchase, you can comment here or email me and you can buy early! Fab champagne glasses will be joining the wineglasses and all will be sold in sets of 4! Are you so excited?!! I am!

So, onto a few sparkle items that I am loving this week!

I finally took the plunge and added the neon pink Kate Spade studs to my life! I love them almost as much as the clear! :) I feel like I might need to add more colors to my collection too! So fun! I sent a surprise little happy in turquoise to someone earlier this week! That's a great color as well and I can't wait for her to get them!!!!!

This Foiled Dot Napkin Set from Anthropologie is amazing! I use them as placemats as well! My BFF gave them to me. Does she know me well or what?! Anywho, I ordered 6 more sets! They are on sale! Hello!! Perfect for gifts, etc! I could see these paired with a 4 pack of Sofia and paper straws as a hostess gift or birthday gift!!! LOVE!

 While I was making wineglasses this week, I made a few glitter vases! I am obsessed with how they turned out! This rose is from my fav bush in our yard! It smells amazing and of course,
it's my fav color!

I recently found this fab Etsy shop, Baker's Bling! I have been searching for gold paper straws for awhile now! Oh, how I love a paper straw!!! They have gold and silver straws (and any other color you could imagine!!!!!!)! They are FAB-U-LOUS and I love them! What better way to bring bling to your everyday life than by using a blingtastic paper straw!

Pair these straws with a Sofia or one of my hubs' Mojitos and one of the sparkly Anthro napkins
and you are totally set for a fab and fun cocktail hour!

Now for the Sparkle Friday SURPRISE!!!! 

I am giving away 2 sets of 50 of these FAB straws from Baker's Bling!!!!!! They will be a mix of GOLD stripe and chevron! Are you sooooo excited?!!!! YAY!!!! I am so excited for you!!!!
