guest post & giveaway! Janell from The Croppers

Okay team, I'm way excited to introduce you to today's visitor. We used to have all sorts of awkward "I know you, but I don't really know you" moments, but now we're BFFs and we stalk each other's blogs openly. We've bonded that much. Janell, it was worth spending this time with you... ;)

Hello fellow Elise's Pieces Readers!

I'm definitely honored to be able to share the platform with such a fun fun girl!  Elise and I were in the same Institute Show Choir at Snow College, but never at the same time.  We became friends, because we had the same awesome mutual friends.  It all worked out smashingly in the end for a great friendship though :)  Elise inspires me to be spontaneous, enjoy the world around me, and actually get out and write what I'm thinking!

My name is Janell.  I love reading great books, spending time with great people, traveling, enjoying the arts, running, singing, dancing, and wearing high heels.

I married Prince Charming almost exactly 5 years ago, and I'm a stay-at-home mom to the MOST adorable two kids you'll ever meet. Steven is 3 (Almost 4 as he tells me daily), and Lillie who is 18 months old.  I also blog HERE every now and then, but it's mainly the day-to-day happenings of our cute little family. I love reading great books, spending time with great people, traveling, enjoying the arts, singing, dancing, and wearing high heels.
 I teach piano lessons here and there and I love to dabble and experiment in all sorts of crafting; mainly sewing, crocheting, and bow making.  

When I was younger, I always thought I could plan my life the way I wanted, but looking back basically nothing has happened the way I originally planned.  But that is totally okay.  I look back and I'm so grateful for everything I've been given, because it's been exactly what I have needed.  Mama Oodie down in the Bayou would agree with that :) 

If you want to know anything else about me, feel free to post in the comments sections, or check out my blog!

As part of my post, I'm going to giveaway one of my latest crafts, which is the crocheted headband.  The winner will get to choose from the colors: White, Navy Blue, Royal Blue, Red, Pink, Brown, or Black. I'm debating on starting an Etsy shop, so feedback would be awesome as well!

For your first entry, go ahead and comment with what color of headband you would choose were you to win. :) 

For a Bonus Entry, tell me your favorite indulgent food that is just delicious no matter what. (I need more ideas to add to my own list of favorites. :)  )

Adios, and Thanks for Reading!!! 

Just a side note: you need to be a follower of Elise's Pieces to enter this giveaway. Also, I HIGHLY recommend following Janell's blog too. Go, fight, win!
