"She Believed She Could so She Did" {Giveaway!!}


I'm about to hit 100 followers!

I can't tell you how humbled and honored I am! It is such a blessing to know that my words are reaching "out there" to people I don't know, some I do know and others I would LOVE to know!

So I wanted to CELEBRATE with a GIVEAWAY for you!

I wanted it to be something significant and special, so I contacted one of my new favorite
Etsy shops


and asked if she'd like to be involved...

To my utter excitement she said YES!

Remember this post? Well I was so inspired by that quote, I went looking for a print of it that I liked and found this one at her shop.


{I framed and matted it myself}

I love it. These words are so significant for me and my life at the moment and now I have a beautiful reminder of it every day.

And you can too!!

The winner will receive one 8x10 "She Believed She Could so She Did" wall art of their own! You can customize the colors to match your style and room.

Her shop is filled with so many adorable and inspirational wall designs. Here are just a few of my favorites...

...so cute for a new baby girl



This one for twins is perfect!


LOVE this one...


And these....






You HAVE to go check out her etsy shop, she has so many things you will fall in love with. And even better, her prices are so reasonable, it makes having something special totally doable!

To enter for a chance to win the "She Believed She Could so She Did" wall art, just leave a comment letting me you know you are a follower! If you are not, just take a quick sec to become one and then let me know you did, your comment will be your entry!

And just for fun as an additional entry, is there something you believed you could do and then DID? Have you ran in a race? Learned a new skill? Started a business or a family?
OR is there something you'd like to do one day?
Whatever it may be,
Share it!!
Let's inspire and BE inspired!!

I will use random.org and announce the winner on Monday!

Much Love to you ALL!!

  1. I'm a follower! I would one day like to open a kids resale shop. In College Station, there is only ONE. Yes, I said ONE. And it's not very good, either. Over priced, and bad service. I want to open one that is friendly, and there to help people that may not be able to afford full price items, or just for parents that are frugal, like myself. One day!

  5. I must say that i LOVE this quote. And right now in my life it means ALOT to me. I am 29 years old, and a single mom. I have desided to go back to school to better myself for not only me but my son. Therefore "she believed she could so she did" means alot :)

  6. I am a new follower! There are 2 "big" things I believe I can (and will) do! One, I will lose weight and reach my final goal (I've lost 40 pounds so far!). Two, I am in the beginning stages of starting my own etsy shop, which I believe will one day go beyond etsy! Not only do I believe that I can do it, I believe I can do because of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

  9. I'm a new follower - I now follow via GFC as mrsoz.

    I believed I could become more outgoing (I was extremely shy growing up). I forced myself outside my comfort zone in college, and although I am by no means an extrovert now, I can be extroverted when I have to be. :)

  22. I always knew that I wanted a family, but I also knew that I would want to raise my children myself. I've been working at home (blessing!) so that I can be with miss boo (almost 4). We're planning for 1 more and we're starting another business...so I guess I knew I could so I did! Love that saying. So empowering. Thanks for the inspiration:)

  27. And, for my extra entry, last year I realized I never choose to do hard things. So I signed up to train for a half marathon. I completed it, along with a 12K, a 5K and the Warrior Dash. I am now hooked on running. I believed I could, so I did. :-) Love your blog.

  31. About 2 years ago, I believed I could run in a marathon. I had never ran more than a mile in my life. I was one of those self proclaimed asthmatics... I could hardly catch a breath after one mile so I assumed it was b/c I had asthma - NOT b/c I was out of shape ;) BUT I decided to go for it. I stuck to my training schedule & pushed through all the pain, soreness, blisters, ugly feet, scrapes (I fell into the street one night... ouch!)& pushed through those "I don't wanna run today" moments. I am proud to say that I have now ran in THREE 1/2 marathons! One of which my time is under two hours - just sayin :) My NEW goal that I DO BELIEVE I can & WILL accomplish is to run a FULL in November. That print would be so helpful for me to look at every day when I have those tough moments that I know I'll come to during my next training period. :)

  47. For an additional post... I always dreamed I would be an interior decorator when I grew up. Me and my friend Lizzy would play "L&L Interiors" for hours when we were little.... (stood for Liz&Lynn since my name was always such a pain growing up). I am so proud to say than not only am I an interior decorator but my own boss owning Ellis Gamel Interiors. I knew it was a leap of Faith to start this business and it continues to be a blessing, challenge, dream come true and more! I hope to one day have employees, storage spaces for all the great furniture I find but don't currently have needs for, and to travel to Europe for furniture a few times a year. The future holds BIG THINGS!
