sponsor love: interview and giveaway with Amanda of Amanda Lynne Designs!!


do you remember me swooning over a couple of my favorite necklaces, especially that uber-special hand-stamped one? over HERE and oh, yeah THIS one too. well, guess what?! i'm super excited for you to meet today's sponsor love since i am especially in love with her work. i love the simplicity and daintiness of my hand-stamped necklace. it's just perfect. i especially love how she describes her jewelry as life-inspired, as all art should be, art that is inspired by the life of the artist.  

meet amanda.


tell us about your shop
amanda lynn designs.
My shop is my baby, I love being able to create. 
It truly is unique and life inspired stamped jewelry - to being able to record memories and to be able to wear those reminders is an awesome bonus. My daughter (miss 5) loves to create also and I cherish every moment with her. And love to see her inspired.
what are a couple random facts about you?
One of my favorite movies is Monty Python Holy Grail (pee your pants funny).
Cannot clap and sing at the same time (have no rythm what so ever).
and now introducing...
so i think you all know which one is my fave.
yup that little guy on the far left.
i got my lovely stamped with a 'b.'
you might think it cheesy but it stands for my future last name and i adore it!
the name and the necklace - duh, silly. ;)

oh but there's more than that. 
you have stunning heirloom necklaces, darling bff bracelets
suh-weet keychains and adorbable rings!
