Sponsor of the Week: Agape Love Boutique

We have a delightful giveaway in store for you this week, sponsored by Agape Love Boutique.

Agape Love Boutique is an Etsy shop full of jewelry and accessories, designed and handcrafted by shop owner Maria Gridley.

What’s not to love about charming pieces like this one?

Maria tells us the story of how Agape Love Boutique came to be:

I started Agape Love Designs originally when I was designing Christian layouts and graphics on Myspace.  Well, I have come a LONG way since then. I have moved on from that stage in my life to bigger and better things! Though I do still enjoy digital design, I have come to really enjoy designing, creating and crafting things by hand.

I got into creating hair accessories because I liked to add a fun pop of color, or feminine bow in my hair… but at the time, wasn’t finding options that I really liked in stores. And while inspecting a simple ribbon clip I had bought, I thought to myself… I can make these! And I can probably make them way better! So I researched, and bought supplies… and well, here I am today! I haven’t stopped since.. and it’s been a little over a year now!

Now I am looking forward to adding more accessories and designs. Each day I am thinking of new fun things to create. I love it because I love that I can create something personal and special. And I love that I can share those creations with others as well! 🙂 I really hope you enjoy my shop!

We adore the vintage finishes and luminous baubles that Maria includes in her designs.  Take a look at some of our favorites:

Maria has generously offered to give the winner of the giveaway the black pearl necklace (shown above) from her Agape Love Boutique.
