June Sponsor Spotlight: Cows, Corn, & Country Girls, Choosing Joy, and Unsimply Celia

June 15, 2012

Before we get started, I just wanted to let you all know that I’m currently accepting sponsors for July! There are only ten spots, so sign up quickly before they’re all gone. As a sponsor your button goes on my side bar all month long, you get mentions on Twitter, and a spotlight post like this one. If you’re interested, just email me at observantturtle.blog at gmail dot com!

Also, I made it to the top six of the Sweet Tea Paperie plate design contest!! Would you take a second to vote for me? I’d really appreciate it!

I’ve got another great group of bloggers to share with you all today! One is a fellow Houstonian who has lots of spunk, another is an adorable farm girl, and one is one of the most positive and sweet people that I know!

Jamie, Cows, Corn, & Country Girls

Hi All! I’m Jamie and I blog over at Cows, Corn & Country Girls! You might be deceived about the title, but I promise we chat about a lot more than the 3 C’s, including all things social media, shopping, crafting and anything that crosses my little mind during the week. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll definitely get a few corn reports and cattle chatter now and again, but like any “country girl,” I have a lot of different passions! I’d love for you to stop by and visit as I chronicle my 20-something, newly married life in small-town America. 

What’s one blog that you’re really loving right now?

I am loving Katie over at At Home When I’m With You right now. You must stop by & check her out. She’s a fellow crafter, but she remembers to take pictures so she can blog about it! :) I especially liked her DIY Fail post from this week, because, it happens to all of us and I am glad she is keeping it real! 

What’s your favorite post you’ve ever written? 
Favorite blog post? That’s tough, especially because I have been (very) casually been at this for a while. However, I am pretty proud of my How To Make A Photo Collage On Your iPhone post because that little discovery drastically improved my Instagram world. And, if I am allowed to go way back when, my second post ever when I complained about the “engagement gods” was pretty darn funny. You can read it here. Those thoughts may or may not have been the subconscious reason I even started a blog. Looking back, it’s funny how fast things can change, but I bet I am not the only girl who’s been in that place before. :)

Tell us something about yourself that we might not know just by looking at your blog!

Probably that at my full-time job, I am an editor. As much as I try to spell everything correctly and be punctually perfect every darn post, I think my editing brain turns off at 5 some times. So please, forgive me, it is terribly hard to be both witty and grammatically correct at all times.

What’s one blog that you’re really loving right now?
I’ve just recently found a blog called Cupcakes and Cashmere and I love it. Emily writes about fashion, style, and life. Her blog is so inspiring and has both beautiful pictures and great writing! I can’t wait to try out her cinnamon roll recipe – they seriously look so good!
What’s your favorite post you’ve ever written? 
Wow, this is a hard one. I don’t know that I have one post that is my favorite. If I could choose a “series” of posts, it would be from my trip with Brian when we visited Shenandoah National Park. That was THE best vacation that I’ve taken. We had such a good time and I can’t wait to travel even more with him!

Something that you might not know about me just from looking at my blog, is that I am extremely shy in person. In reality, I’m very quiet until I get to know you!

Hi! I’m Celia, soon-to-be newly wed. The best way to find out about my blog is checking out this blog post. It seriously sums up everything right now. 


What’s one blog that you’re really loving right now?

oh gosh, this is so hard to answer there are so many great blogs out there. hmm… if I have to choose one it would beFat Mum Slim. She’s amazing. 

What’s your favorite post that you’ve written?

Probably the one I liked above. I think my next favorite will probably be when I come back to share photos of our wedding day! 

Tell us one thing that we wouldn’t know just by looking at your blog.

Oh my, well my blog is a pretty open book. It’s a personal blog… Can I reverse this question and ask what is one thing you would like to know about me that you haven’t found in my blog?
