Artist Feature & Giveaway: Designs By Mila

If you've happened by my fan page, you may have noticed that I seem to talk to myself there...a lot...but I really don't, I promise! My trusty right-hand-second-admin comments as well, and you can't differentiate between us!

Her name is Mila and I would really love to introduce her to you! Mila (that's my-la, not me-la) and I have been real-life BFF's for over 10 years now.

Mila & I at her shower for Baby Eden a couple of years ago~time flies!

Mila is a stay-at-home, work-from-home, soon-to-be 27 year old wife to one (Eric) and mom/step-mom to many. Mila and her husband Eric were married on Halloween (sheer coincidence, but I love throwing that out there!) and now have a blended family that includes 6 kids and a handful of animals. Mila & most of her family currently reside in the gorgeous low country of South Carolina (I miss having her here in the Upstate with me), where she enjoys a truly beachy life! You can find some of her work for sale at Rae Rocco's in downtown Summerville, and at Pure Gifts, LLC in Mt. Pleasant off the IOP. So if you're local, or down that way, take a peek!

Amidst all of this Mila somehow manages to maintain not only her sanity, but a Facebook fanpage and a very successful (and still growing!) Etsy shop.

In Mila's shop, Designs by Mila, you can find all sorts of pretty treasures, ranging from broken china pendants:

To dainty & sweet monogrammed infant bracelets:

To gorgeous pearl bobby pins such as these:
