Archive for July 2012
Good morning! Just as one giveaway ended, another has begun! I sponsored the blog Yellow Bird, Yellow Beard this month and she is hosting a giveaway from several of the month's sponsors. I am excited to be amongst two other giveaways--one is for $25 to anthropologie and another is crafting supplies. Both prizes are so amazing!
So, what am I giving away?
Well, remember when Ryan and I went to visit the farmhouse apartment? It wasn't meant to be for us, but we still had some awesome pictures from it. We are giving away one hand-printed image.
First, a giveaway reminder: the last day to enter the giveaway to win one of my fave purses is this Friday, July 27! Don't miss out! Click here to enter...all it requires is for you to leave one comment to enter.
I decided that I will post about the package that I sent off for my package exchange partner. I just realized that I forgot to take photos of what was contained INSIDE the packages--oops! If you take a look at my inspiration post here, I covered a notebook in a fun, bright fabric. I also bought some pretty neat washi tape (who doesn't love this stuff?), which is one of Evani's likes. I also made some bows for her out of yarn and felt (these are packaged in the "thank you" bag). The notebook and washi were wrapped together in a hand-printed fabric and tied with cotton and a name tag that I hand-embroidered.
I am writing this while incredibly sleepy and I will likely hit the hay after this post is written.
We are still waiting to hear about whether we got the apartment on the farm or not. I still have hope, but it dwindles now and then as one day turns into the next. Keep your fingers crossed, people.
I placed in the top 5 for the pet photo challenge at thepapermama.com. I'm excited about that...Tater is a cute little being.
Also, check out the feature at YB+YB when you get a chance. I may be involved in a group giveaway towards the end of the month! Reading Janee's blog has been a pleasure so far; I really hope you all check it out.
I finished packaging my gift for Evani at Simply Evani through the 2012 Packaging Exchange hosted by Oh, Hello Friend. I would love to post about it, but I don't want to give away what the stuff is before Evani receives it! I will have to post more about it once she receives the package.
Sleep well, my friends. It's time for Tater and I to snooze.
Danni from the lovely blog Oh Hello, Friend is hosting a package exchange amongst those who entered. We each listed a bit about ourselves and she assigned us based on country and somewhat similar interests. We will exchange gifts that are well/fun wrapped. I have been looking through Pinterest (of course) of some ideas and I thought I would share some inspiration with you all:
I assisted Ryan in shooting a wedding the other weekend. It was such a beautiful setting and one that I didn't know existed so close to our home. Here are a few shots from that wonderful day:
