Another Giveaway from Leyton Smiles!

One of my very first customers ever on Etsy, Heather, asked me if I might be interested in doing a giveaway on her blog. It's a super cute blog, and she had been such a wonderful customer, so of course I jumped on it! So here's your chance to win a free Reversible Chenille Bib from me! :) Head on over and check out her blog - she's worked hard to list all kinds of great deals (and giveaways) there!

Butterflies! (Tuesday Happys)

In my endless digging for treasures on Etsy, I came across a butterfly item that I just loved... And so this week's edition of Happys was born. I'm hoping to maybe catch a treasury later this week and continue the theme - we'll just have to see how lucky I am! :)

New Item!

A few weeks ago, I had asked if there was anything I didn't offer in my store that you would like to see... One thing that came from that was the suggestion of BIBS! Considering one of my children used spitting up as a defense mechanism (I swear he could get you from across the room - and at will), I can't believe I wasn't already making these in bulk! So take a peek at the new bibs if you haven't already! I have one listed with a gift set, one listed by itself, and several more coming the next few days. Let me know what you think! :)

Tuesday Happys!

Just another edition of Tuesday happys! My longing for Spring continues this week with the bright SPRING colors! (Did I mention I'm getting very tired of the cold, dreary days and snow?) And this week I have a theme - CITRUS! Such a fun word to search on, and what fun items I came back with! Here's just a few of my favs...

Happy Tuesday everyone!


So I promised details this morning on a big event for Leyton Smiles! Tiffany, from "Stuff Parents Need" has done a wonderful review on my CuddleBug lovey. Her sweet little one, Darah, was in need of something to keep her hands busy and comfort her while they attempted to wean her from the swaddle blanket. I've "been there, done that" with my boys, and knew the CuddleBug would be perfect! So I sent one her way, and she has done a great review and is now hosting a giveaway of my CuddleBug Lovey! So swing on by her blog and leave her a comment! She has several fun ways to enter, so be sure to participate any way you can and up your chances of winning! :)

Also, her blog is GREAT. Seriously, it's one I read daily. She has great information on new and different products, as well as she is just a talented writer and is darn funny to read. Consider following her blog! :)

Last but not least, if you do decide to enter, leave me a comment and let me know! I'm so excited to see what the rest of the "blogging world" thinks of my CuddleBug Loveys!

Facebook. Yes, have some.

Ok sorry, the title of this just makes me laugh. Remember Ghostbusters? I'm not even going to go into the scene where that line is used, but just trust me, it is. And everytime I hear "yes, have some." it just makes me laugh. Ok, now that you realize my humor is a bit off, let's move on. :)

I caved and gave in to creating a Facebook fan page. The only problem? Now that I have it, I'm not sure what to do with it! So I'm taking suggestions... What things should I put out there (remember, I am Facebook challenged. Just bear that in mind. The fan page was a struggle for me. I am very computer-literate, but for some reason, FB and I just don't get along)? Also, I suppose I need some fans?!? I added a link in the sidebar of the blog if you are interested...

(Right over here ------------------------------------------>)

Or you can find me here. And if you don't come visit me there, no big deal. But if you do, leave me a note with your fan page (if you have one) and let me know so I can fan you back!

Tuesday Happys (Part II)!

I warned you I don't always have a theme. I wasn't kidding. This week is a conglomeration of all things I find cute currently on Etsy. No category, special color, or theme. Yes, there are far more than this, but you don't really want to see 853 of my current favorites, right? :) Happy Tuesday! I hope this brightens your day a little... In the land of little sunshine lately, I was THRILLED (and almost blinded) to see the sun this morning! First time we haven't been cloud-covered since January 25th. And it was starting to wear on me...

Have I mentioned I have small children? Would you ever guess that looking at my favorites these days? It seems I gravitate to all things little people... :)

Yea for Craftgawker!

I'm so excited Craftgawker has accepted one of my Swaddle Blankets for their site! What fun, and I'm in such great company - there are some amazing crafty people that have items on Craftgawker, and I don't exactly feel worthy. :)

Check out some of the fun items on display there - - and it's always changing!

Happy Tuesdays or Tuesday Happys!

So in an effort to spice things up around here, I'm going to start a new feature. I love the term "Happys," (my Dad started using this word when referring to little things he buys my boys to make them smile - anything from a cookie to a new toy) and am going to use it in reference to fun things I'll post each week. Tuesdays are a "blah" day around here - and I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my current favorite items on Etsy by other sellers! This week I'm going with a Valentine's Day theme, but a "theme" may not always happen. Sometimes I'm scatter-brained like that. ;) Enjoy!!
