Believe ~ {My trip to NYC to see Martha} + a giveaway

***We have a winner***
Congratulations Gianna (comment # 298)!!!!!
Please email your mailing address to kristen@3littlebirdsboutique.com!!!


I believe in following my heart and enjoy the patterns of love that are created because of it. For the most part, I run my business as I do my life, with all heart (though I must admit, my logical husband is more than a blessing). When my own logic mixed with a bit of fear filled my brain with all of the reasons I should not run off to NYC in the freezing cold with an energetic toddler in tow...I am glad my heart screamed - GO!!! Because if it hadn't I would have missed these precious memories with family


 and these Martha Stewart conference moments



and fun late nights with these talented ladies,
meet my "power posse"

(starting from the back left)

Laura of Eye Candy Event Details: she is a dynamic tell it like it is kinda girl! Her raw graphic design talent and determination will impress you and her story will bring you to tears! *she has a cute giveaway going on until 1/31/11 - go check it out!

Terri of Terri's Treasures: she is a ray of sunshine who will make you want to move across country to live in her neighborhood. Fun, sweet and super talented, you MUST check out her cake pops! * stay tuned for more on Terri and an awesome cake pop feature!

Me :))

Nikki of Nikki In Stitches: she is adorable, she is clever, she is the next Martha! Really, this girl can make ANYTHING and makes it look so easy and fun!  Check out her blog for great DIY kits! *coming soon, a post about Nikki and my new hooded scarf (that she made)!

Jennifer of Passion for Parties: there is a reason everyone says Jen feels like a long time friend, she is sticky sweet to the core. She also has a fabulous party business and I just can't get enough of her! *super excited for an extra sweet Valentine's giveaway 3 Little Birds is involved in on her blog starting Feb. 1st!

Aimee of Lulu Pink: awe, my NYC roomie, bless her heart!!! We stayed up until all hours of the night and I could not possibly be more smitten with this girl! We share the same birthday, even the same year! Can you imagine the connection!?! Ya, we were talking reunion the day we were settled in back at home. She has a new and already booming party business, which is no surprise. Beyond talented, she is charming, funny and a pure delight to be with.

Heather of The Sewing Loft: (not pictured) she is gentle and wise, sweet and savvy. The perfect business woman and willing to share her knowledge, a true gem.  She makes handmade children's gifts by reusing and recycling, I am drooling over all of them!


and, YOU would have missed this:




A new limited edition set with Swarovski crystals straight from one of my favorite shopping spots in NYC, introducing:

{Believe} ~ A sparkly and fun earring and necklace set! Perfect with your favorite jeans and ballet flats or paired with a little black dress. Swarovski stones in your desired color choice are hand wire wrapped and hung on sterling silver earwire. A matching Swarovski stone hangs delicately on a sterling silver rope chain creating the perfect everyday set.

  15. I {BELIEVE} that everything happens for a reason...from little things, like not having enough flour for a recipe, asking your neighbor for some, and becoming great friends...to big things, like stepping way out of your comfort zone to travel to NYC, meeting some of the must beautiful women (both inside and out), and making great friendships that will last a lifetime!
