Blog Angel reveal

I can't believe August is already over and it's time to reveal who I've been helping as a Blog Angel this month.

I have been helping the lovely Celeste from Crazy Beautiful Unique.  She is also the creative mind behind A Girl and Her Clay.  I'm sure this comes as no surprise to her since my efforts during the second half of the month have been less than stealthy. 

As far as what I did over the course of the month, I started by following her blog, Facebook, and liking her Etsy shop.  I did all these a few days before the beginning of the month, hoping that my cover wouldn't be blown by just showing up on August first.  I tried to comment on most of her posts and just be supportive.  Her shop was on vacation when I first discovered it, but by looking through past sales I was able to get an idea of what she offered.  I decided I could kill two birds with one stone once the shop opened and support her financially as well as getting some Christmas gifts for my girls.  I then had the brainstorm to request a custom chibi-style Lil Red charm for Little Miss Sunshine. (See this post)
The other big thing that I managed to pull off was getting her free ad space on one of my favorite blogs.  That was a frantic day on my end since the free code was only applicable to the first person to claim it.  I didn't have the time to be super secretive, so I just fired off a message to let her know her blog angel wanted to give her this opportunity.  I tried to make it sound like I was sending the message for someone else, but I'm almost positive I didn't pull it off.  But, Celeste ended up with the ad and I'm thrilled for her!

So, with all that said, would I participate in the Blog Angel program again?  Definitely!  I'll be planning on round 2 in October.  (Sign-ups will begin September 15, if you're interested in making a difference to another blogger.)

Sometimes in an emergency it makes it quite hard to be secret - but props to you for donating an ad space to someone. That is totally awesome. Also, thank you so much for really connecting with her.

Hope to see you taking part in October. You have been awesome!

Amy! Haha! I had a feeling it was you! But you did throw me off with the Facebook message. I started to think that Marie was my blog angel. Thanks for everything! You were the best angel a girl could ask for :)
