  62. Hi Rora!!! It's me, Amy! Here is my entry for your contest. About which is my favorite item on your Mom's etsy page, I am crazy about the felted fish and I can't decide which is my favorite. Ahhh! I think I like the chevron flat-fantail felted fish the best though. I like its color combo. The pink did it! About the personalization, I think I am trying to be chic and modern, but I am really cozy and country. Cause I am from Kentucky. LOL. Three things I love that make me, well, me: I love makeup, I love dogs, and I love Walt Disney World. My favorite colors are mixes and matches of black, pinks, purples, and silver tones. And I love me some glitter and shimmer and frost. Oh yeah!!! :-D --Amy!
