as well as a list of previous blog-erviews {here}!
Tell us a little about yourself and Your blog and shop

Hello everyone! My name is Mandy and I'm 29 years old. I'm married to an amazing man of God, and I'm the mother to a beautiful little girl who I homeschool and handsome twin boys. Back in April of 2008 I started making and selling hair accessories, wipe cases and other items for babies/toddlers/little girls. This brought about Luxe Babies.  I now make and sell Luxe Babies hair accessories for a local boutique called Bella Grace.
 On January 13, 2012 I stared an Etsy shop called Luxey Leg Candy where I make lace accented leg warmers and knee socks for teens/women. I love the updated version of leg warmers, especially when worn with boots, and last month, after seeing all the socks with heels on the runways, I added a pretty lace knee sock that can be worn with heels.

What made you decide to get involved with blogging?
I decided to start Life Songs Of A Busy Mom so I could share my life, thoughts, ideas, products and recipes with others. I am a true believer that no craft, recipe, DIY project, or great product should be kept to yourself. It's much more fun when we all share ideas and help one another out...especially as mothers. I also love to connect with other moms and hear their ideas. Thus, the blog was born.

Has blogging played a role in the start of or development of your shop? If so, how? If not, tell us how your shop came about.
Blogging certainly helps with the advertisement of my shops and it also lets my customers see that, just like them, I'm a busy mom too. I'm a one woman show when it comes to my shop, and I think people appreciate buying a handcrafted item that they know was made with care and love.

How do you come up with material/content for your blog each day, What inspires you?
Oh Boy...well, I really just blog about what I did each day. What crafts I did with the kids, what I taught Grace in homeschool, what I made for dinner that night...pretty much my everyday activities that are probably very similar to most stay-at-home moms.  My kids are a huge inspiration for the blog.

Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?
I follow so many mommy bloggers, it's hard to name my favorites, but I love blogs where I can find fun and educational activities for my kids and I also love fashion blogs (even though my closet will most likely never contain any of the outfits/shoes/handbags/jewelry I drool over lol). I also like to follow Christian bloggers since I am a born again Christian and LOVE my Lord and Savoir!

What Social Networks are you on?

What networking do you do, that you feel helps your blog and/or shop the most?
Facebook has been huge for both my shops and the blog. I love doing giveaways with other shops/sites and that has brought a bunch of new traffic to my shops/blog.

What goals do you have, if any, for your blog/shop right now and in the future?
My Goals for my shops/blog is for them to continue to be blessed. My prayer is that what I do, I do it for the glory of my Lord and that He will be pleased with my endeavors.  My prayer is that He will open doors that no man shut and that my readers and customers will see Jesus through me.

What has been the best thing about blogging so far?
I love hearing from readers! It truly makes my day when someone thanks me for what I do. I love to help others and if I can help even just one person, then it makes it all worthwhile.

Is there anything else you would like to share with my readers?
Yes! Come on over to Life Songs Of A Busy Mom  and follow me. Like my fb page! Make comments! And above all...thank you and I appreciate you all!

 Thank you SO much for your wonderful interview Mandy!
I love the goals you wrote, it too is one of my goals that people see Jesus shine through me,
my blog here and my shop!

To all my sweet readers, I do hope you will head on over to check out Mandy's blog and shops!
She is truly wonderful. ♥

Much Love & Hugs,
