Much Ado About You {review+giveaway}




I can't wait to introduce you to the fabulous Emmy and Much Ado About You, full of gorgeous personalized planners, journals, calendars, and more!



Uhh yeah.  See what I'm talking about?  If your eyes tend to love on colors, textures, and of course, a pretty little initial, you will LOVE Much Ado About You's line of personalized planning products!


Any teachers out there looking to spice up your lesson planner?  Or maybe your sweet niece needs a little organization for school?  Let me tell you a little about how awesome Emmy {Much Ado About You's mastermind} is:  anything is possible, my dears!  She has the creative and functional ideas, so you can dream up what you're looking for!  Plus, for you special readers of The Ivy Twines, Much Ado About You is offering up a 10% discount!



Along with how incredibly stunning the etsy shop is, if you're ready to be blown away, head over to her blog:


{her last post left me with such a heavy heart.  if you feel so moved, head over and send her some love and prayers.  so so so so sad.}

Beyond being creative, Emmy offers tons of great advice and encouragement over at her little slice of the blog world!  If you're considering a handmade business, you MUST READ Emmy's You're The Boss series!  Learn about branding, pricing your products, and taking advantage of free marketing opportunities.  And this little miss has turned her one woman show into a hugely successful small business, so, I think she knows what she's talking about!  :)

If that's not valuable enough, Emmy opens her heart and chats about struggling with infertility and their walk with adoption, too.  She's got such a spunky attitude and a beautiful faith, you can't help but love her and pray right along with her family.




Emmy was so sweet and sent us over one of her personalized journals.  Don't you love??




This, my friends, is my much improved gratitude journal!  Lined pages, lots of them, and a sweet little pocket!  Can't get any better than that!  And that ribbon?  Love!!


Guess what?  Emmy is offering up a $25 Gift Certificate to Much Ado About You so a lucky reader can go all out and spoil themselves with their very own personalized planners and more!


{EDIT:  Baby alert!  Emmy and her beautiful family just found out they are going to be parents of a beautiful baby girl, who they will bring home in about a week!  Much Ado About you is currently on maternity leave to get ready for the sweet baby, but you can still see their products if you click on "749 sales" link in their etsy shop!  We're pretty lucky too, because the Much Ado About You team will have fun new products when Emmy returns!}
