I just love Valentines! I have been around so many wonderful shops and even bought my sweetie some fun items!!

Well I am so happy to announce my drawing winner this week! I love her shop too! And the winner is: Cassie Wodicka!!! Here is her shop!!

Let me give you a little information about Cassie. She is a stay at home mom to a wonderful daughter who was born in February 2008. Cassie's explains in her profile that her little one is a very energetic daughter and loves playing with their family dog. She must say that he is definitely a trooper to withstand some of the "beatings" that she lovingly gives.

Cassie has been a stay at home mom since last fall when she lost her job and she goes on to say that that has been one of the best things to happened to her! She truly believes that when God closes a door he opens a window, because being able to stay home with her baby every day is a blessing.

Cassie has been married to her high school sweetheart since September of 2005. She says there isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't thank God for both her husband and daughter!

Please be sure to stop in and see Cassie's other shop too!!

Looks like this shop is fairly new to Etsy. She began December 2009 and specializes in jewelry designs and beautiful paintings!
