{Holy Giveaway, Batman!} {CLOSED}

Monday, April 11, 2011

In honor of our blog's 1 Year Birthday next Tuesday, I thought we'd celebrate a little early by offering you a chance to win five of our favorite things!

To enter, just leave a comment below by Sunday, April 17th. We'll be drawing five winners (one for each item) and announcing them on Monday!


Our first giveaway is for a vintage bee bag from Meatbagz. I use mine for all of my camera shiz and love it! Be sure and check out Mack and Kate's other bags here.


Our second giveaway is for a pair of handmade baby booties from Pleasantly Plump Knits. Ever since Meghan won our free advertising giveaway last July she's become my go-to for baby gifts. Check out her other creatively hand knit baby booties here.


Our third giveaway for a large owl beeswax candle from Pollen Arts. Tim and I have the privilege of owning a whole set of these beauties and could not be bigger fans of those who make them. Be sure and check out Juwels & Peter's other beeswax creations here. PS, they maybe might be ETSY's FEATURED SELLER TODAY!!!


Our fourth giveaway is for a set of Eight Stach-tastic Mustaches from Little Retreats. These are perfect for photo booths, grandma's 90th birthday party, or for just having fun with your friends. To check out more of Brooke's handmade paper party props go here.


Our last giveaway is for a reusable Kone coffee filter courtesy of Coava Coffee Roasters in Portland, OR. Earlier this year we wrote a review on why these steel filters are worth investing in. Be sure and check out Coava's website for more information on the Kone and other coffee items featured at their online store.

Happy (almost) freakin 1 year Birthday little Bloggy!
XOXO

addison said...

think of how many lives today's letters has changed in one year. you have people eating tim tams, throwing fist pumps non jersey shore style, kicking their legs out, wearing capes, asking for forgiveness, remembering to be childlike, bettering their relationships, listening to good music, enjoying nature, and most importantly, allowing everyone to feel needed, understood, and loved. all of this in ONE YEAR. congratulations. run for president in 2012 and save us all.

abbysaysILY88 said...

’m wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy and fun,
Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday’s done,
I hope you feel deep in your heart,
As your birthdays come and go,
How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know.
By Joanna Fuchs

Thanks so much for letting us all into a little piece of your life! I cherish every post and look forward to showing them to my future husband, (in many years of course) And maybe I will be blessed enough to receive a wonderfully unique Meatzbag to store my own letters to my husband in! Have a beautiful week! :)
