Along For The Ride {giveaway}

Meet Laura...

Hi there! I'm Laura and I'm along for the ride!

No, literally, I am. Along For the Ride isn't just the name of my blog and handmade shop, but it's how I see my walk with the Lord. I am along for the ride He has planned for me, and what a glorious ride it is!


During the day (and lots of times at night) I spend my time running a residence hall on a college campus. My husband and I live in the hall and our neighbors are 400 loud, silly, messy, wonderful college students.

We have a kitty baby named Jupiter that shares our little apartment.
When I'm not working in the hall, I spend my time with a glue gun in hand, making lovely things for my shop.

My motto is "keep is simple" and I try to make simple, beautiful accessories that aren't too dramatic or fussy, but add just a pretty touch of whimsy.
"Keep it simple" is my motto for my life as well and I blog a lot about the simple, little, imperfect things that make life sweet.

Check out Laura's awesome shop:
I love these my mum hair pins

and this brooch.

I need these bias tape earrings and

this turquoise pendant is my absolute favorite.

Laura is giving one TCM reader a $20 shop credit!
