Nothing Else Matters {Besides This Giveaway ;)…}

November 28, 2011


Erin Schrader

Well look who decided to show up.
Your lovely face..and Monday’s not so lovely face.
I am so glad that you are here.
{Monday–I am not speaking to you}
I’ve got a few back problems goin’ on at the current moment.
I am still blaming it totally on that dang turkey and its frozen neck I had to yank out.
So in honor of my discomfort sitting behind a computer, I am putting somebody else in charge.
Somebody cool.
Real cool.
Her name is Emily and she makes really pretty things.
Like things I am dying to get my hands on.
Lucky for you saps, one of you will get your hands on something.
I could keep talking, but my back keeps telling me to go lay down.
I guess I will obey.
Enjoy what Emily has to say and please, oh please, go visit her after you are done here.
She deserves all the love you can throw at her.

My name is Em and I blog over at And Nothing Else Matters

I am a happily married mum of two from Australia.
Yep that’s right I’m an Aussie. 

The hubby joined the Air Force last year so I am navigating the new world of being a defence wife. 
I blog about the highs and lows and all the fun in between of juggling marriage and motherhood with distance and demands.
The loneliness and hard times that came with this whole new lifestyle was one of my main reasons for starting my blog.
And I am so glad I did.

I love discovering new blogs and getting to know the awesome people behind them, so please come on over to And Nothing Else Matters and say hi!
I also have a fun Etsy Shop where I sell gorgeous delights like this
Hot Pink Fabric Sunglasses Case
Mellow Yellow Ruffled Love Pillow Cover
and this
Blue and Floral Ruffled Love Small Tote Bag
And now, a little question and answer session between Erin & I…
1. What inspired you to start your shop?
It was something that I always wanted to do, my mum used to sell handmade goods at markets, I have such great memories of that time. So when I taught myself to sew and started getting crafty I was making way more things than I could ever use, so selling those goodies became the perfect option.
Plus its a great excuse to try out new ideas!
2. If I could only choose one item to buy from your shop,
which item would it be?
A ruffled camera strap for sure. I love, love, love mine.
So comfy and pretty. They make perfect gifts too.
{Hint Hint}
Ruffled Camera Straps
3. What is the one food you are most excited to eat this Holiday season?
Cheese shortbread for sure, my mum only ever makes it at Christmas and it wouldn’t be the same without it. Followed closely by the baked ham. Nothing like a good baked ham.
4. Do you enjoy reading or writing blog posts better?
I love writing and expressing my thoughts, feelings or just what great new finds I have come across lately.
But I must admit I love reading blog posts the most. I love to sit down with my big cup of coffee and read through all my fave blogs and find new faves to add to the list!
5. What is your favorite color combination at the moment?
In honour of Christmas, I am loving red and silver. 
Christmas Red Silver Ornaments
Also my love affair with yellow and turquoise is continuing.
6. One piece of advice for new bloggers or etsy shop owners?
Don’t let yourself get easily discouraged. Slow sales or not much blog interaction can put you on a downer. And so can comparison.
 Everyone’s blog and shop has its own journey, embrace yours.
And now for the best part of all–A GIVEAWAY
One lucky reader has the chance to win one of her fabulous Ruffled Camera Straps!
