What about me?

Today I'm hanging out with the lovely ladies of the Influence Network for a little get-to-know-me goodness.  

If you're new here -- welcome! I hope you'll stick around for awhile.

valentines ice skating date.  presh.

My name is Cammie. I run the show here at Polka Dotted Peony.  I've been blogging for about nine months.  I know. Still a newborn.  I so enjoy the creative outlet it provides in my professional world of not-all-that-creative.

And just to make things interesting, here are three bits you may not have known before:

  1. I love love love gift-giving.  I wish me giving other people gifts could be their love language.  
  2. If I had to choose just one spot to enjoy forever, I'd choose a lake in northern Wisconsin where we've been going since my mom was a baby. {And by we I mean I was just a star.}  It's the best spot on earth, and I'm not kidding.  I learned to waterski there and I got baptized on its beach by my grandfather.
  3. I once sang backup for Shania Twain. Yes, that's right.  Please wipe your jaw off the counter.  Super-stardom here I come. 
this is THE lake. see why i love it so?
Another reason blogging is such a joy for me is because of the ladies I've gotten to know. Relationships are huge to life, aren't they? We share and bounce off ideas and laugh and grow and earn.  It's beautiful the way it works.

The Network is chock-full of fantastic ladies that I'd love for you to get to know.

Make sure you pop over and say hello to Jennifer.  Send my love to Meg, and make sure you meet Tammy.  You will also love sweet Amber. High five Mary when you see her, and make sure you swing by to meet Rebecca.

  1. Hi Cammie!!! We were made for each other. Getting gifts is my love language. I grew up feeling deeply unknown. The perfect gift is another way of saying, "I see you, I know you, I love you." When someone gives me something that is "me" I feel especially loved. And I'd love to see that lake sometime. Midwest Blogger Retreat? Thanks for the shout out. I copied it and put it on my post, and told everyone it was your idea.

  11. I agree with Tammy, we were made for each other! Would you like me to give you my address so you can send me gifts ALL THE TIME? Oh, you don't, alright... :)
    I'm so glad you linked up and I can't wait to get to know you more.

    P.S. I do love me some Shania.

  12. That's awesome you were a backup singer for Shania Twain! Also, gifts is not really one of my love languages but I'm sure you giving me gifts could be one. ;]

  13. I once sang backup for Selah. Not quite the same caliber as Shania - but you know. Little tiny claim to fame.

    Great to meet you!!

  15. I loved this post. I also love that you love giving gifts. It's something that I love to do, but it's also something I'm hoping to get better at. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not hard to be a good gift giver. It is, however, an art to be a GREAT gift giver. Which I think you pretty much nailed (those plates are still awesome).
