Jocole Patterns {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

I know that I’ve hinted before about my obsession with fabric.  Okay, so I may have even taunted you for a while now with the fact that I have a fabric stash and have kept the appearance of it a secret.  Well today is the day that I reveal what it looks like.  Kind of.  Honestly when I walked into the closet to step a picture I got a little embarrassed.  Okay a lot embarrassed.  Maybe one day I will reveal to you the true extent of my problem, but for now I’ll settle with the disclosure of a partial shelf of the book case:

Yes my fabric is housed on many book shelves.  Also in bins and bags that are yet to be inventoried.  Oh and if we aren’t planning to have guests for a while then the day bed in the room of the closet gets covered with fabric…  Admitting my problem is the first step, so I think this was a really good thing for me.  I really must start using the fabric to create some additions to my children’s wardrobe.  My wardrobe.  My husband’s wardrobe.  Okay I really have enough fabric to create wardrobe additions to clothe a small city.  😉   My start will be to make clothing for Ruby.  Want to see some things that I think would be perfect for filling her closet???  (All in size say 18 months to get her well stocked for next year.)

  

Darling, right?  And where can I (and you) find the patterns to create all that darlingness???  That would be in the Etsy shop Jocole!  (They can also be found here.)

The patterns from Jocole are sew *wink* adorable.  I can’t help but share another favorite design:  

Did you catch that PDF bit?  Yep these patterns an be sent to you right through email.  Making it sew *wink again* easy to go pattern shopping!

And…

Have a look at just how easy the directions are to follow:

Can you tell that in addition to being obsessed with fabric I am now obsessed with patterns from Jocole?  Definitely true!

Kick & Giggle {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

I’m always on the look out for the most dandy items for my kiddos.  So when I come across or hear about something that is just that (dandy) then I think to myself, “I’ve gotta share this with you my readers!”  I’m also thinking that you like to hear about it or you wouldn’t be reading right now.  😉  Dandiness, which also translates into cuteness, cannot be found everywhere.  But it can be found at Kick & Giggle.  The shop has this matching duo that’s perfect for my offspring:

 You can even select from specific colors and patterns:

ADORABLE!

 

There’s also this cuter than cute dress set:

 

Hair accessories and adorable hats:

Fisher-Price Giggle Gang {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

Having a new baby in the house means beginning a collection of new toys.  Sure she has loads of hand me downs from her big brother, but many of them are really worn.  And frankly there are always newer toys coming out!  So when I was contacted to try out the Giggle Gang from Fisher-Price I was ecstatic!  These new toys for age 6 months and up are fabulously dandy.  The members of the Giggle Gang are all soft, colorful, playful, and fun!  See what I mean?  Totally cute:

And… What does Ruby think of her Giggle Gang toys?  She loves ’em!  She loves ’em!  These are the best invention for the little ones I have decided.  They aren’t only just cute, but they are interactive with your child.  The slightest movement will set these guys giggling, laughing, and making the most adorable sounds.  I’m talking sounds that your baby already makes!  The sounds from the Giggle Gang are recorded from babies, so it’s like having a second (or third, or fourth…) baby in the house for your little one to play with.  Ruby is absolutely entranced when I play with her with the Giggle Gang.

 

Want to win a member of the Giggle Gang?  Well, one very lucky winner is going to receive one from Fisher-Price!

*This giveaway is for only one of the Giggle Gang toys, so not all six of the above pictured.  Also, the winner will not be able to pick out which color.  That will be decided at random by Fisher-Price.

 

*This giveaway is open to entries from the US only

*Winners are not notified through email, so you have to check back to find out if you won! The winner of this giveaway will be posted no later than the evening of Monday, July 2nd. Be sure and check back then to see if you won, so you can claim your prize!

Mikarose {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

I dress up every Sunday.  Sometimes I dress up other days out of the week, but for sure on Sunday.  It’s the day I attend church.  Growing up my mom taught us that we were to wear our Sunday best to church and well, it just sort of stuck with me.  So I always wear either a skirt or a dress on Sunday.  Knowing this about me then I’m sure it’s not surprising that I own lots of dresses and skirts.  I’m not going to show you a picture of my closet, because it is just a tad bit embarrassing.  I might be a collector of clothing…  I just love clothes and buying them, okay?  😉   So you won’t get to see my closet today, but I will give you a glimpse of my newest dress that’s hanging in there:

Compliments of Mikarose!

Isn’t the extra detail gorgeous???

What else do I really need in my closet from Mikarose?

Well, for starters I love the look of this dress:

 

And this one:

 

And this one:

With this belt of course:

 

Okay so I basically love everything that is Mikarose!

 

I’m telling Audi that I need to order this skirt.  Like this week.

 One of my lucky readers is going to receive a $50 gift certificate to spend at Mikarose!  But you gotta enter to win!  🙂

Kyla’s Kreations {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

I’m going to share with you a picture of my most favorite little girl in the whole, wide world.  Of course it’s a picture of our darling “Ruby”.

I know, I know.  She sure is extra cute.  I might be just the teensy bit biased…  🙂   But something is definitely missing from this picture.  Can you guess what it is???  What’s missing?  Well, for starters if she had say a bow like this in her hair:

 

Or…

How about an adorable flower on a headband?

Then she would be ever so styling!

Kyla’s Kreations is so full of cuteness and stylish hair accessories for the little ladies.

There’s combinations of…

Flowers:

 

Feathers:

Bows:

 

Can you tell that I cannot get enough of all the great looks at Kyla’s Kreations???  There were just so many favorites that there was no way that I could only show you a few.  Seriously.  All gorgeous and all affordably priced.  Which makes the shop Kyla’s Kreations extra dandy!  🙂

{Giveaway} Jungle Roo Diapers ***ENDED***

We went camping over the weekend and in doing so had to make a purchase that we don’t generally make.  A pack of diapers!  Wow.  Those things are getting really expensive!  We aren’t up to date on that whole diaper buying business, because we don’t use the throw aways at our house.  For the camping trip it was just easier to use the throw aways, because we didn’t really have a good place to keep our cloth.  But at home it’s cloth all the time.  I like how it’s softer on little “Ruby’s” behind and the savings on our grocery budget is amazing!  We started using cloth diapers with “Banjo” a little late, but decided to start Ruby from the beginning.  Both my husband and myself are happy with the decision to go cloth.  You should see him spraying off the dirty ones in the toilet!  He’s such a good dad and I’m lucky to have married quite the man whole helps me in raising our kids.  🙂  Recently Jungle Roo Cloth Diapers sent us their Giraffe Roo cloth diaper:

My faves about this diaper?

  • I love the minty exterior, because it’s excellent for stopping leak throughs!
  • I love the snaps, so it can grow right along with Ruby.
  • I love the adorable print on the fabric!
Jungle Roo has so many diapers with adorable prints:
There are also way cute colors:
   
What’s your favorite?

One very lucky winner is going to receive the Froggy Green cloth diaper from Jungle Roo Cloth Diapers!

{Giveaway} Sew Sweet Patterns ***ENDED***

It no secret that I like to sew.  My family knows it.  My friends know it.  Basically anyone who visits my home will know it when they walk into my dining room.  🙂  The table is usually covered with my latest project!  Sure I have a whole extra room upstairs that is set aside for sewing.  It shares the space with the elliptical and guest bedroom.  But if I want to work on a project during the day then I need to be where I can keep an eye on the kids.  Which means I need to be on the same floor of the house that they are.  Do any of you remember my life long dream?  Well, let me refresh your memory or share it for the first time with a new reader.  My dream is to build an addition on the first floor to have a room for sewing.  The addition will also contain an extra room for a main floor laundry.  Currently that is housed in our unfinished and majorly drab basement.  We shall see if that dream comes true.  For the time being the dining room with suffice.  😉   I’m too ecstatic to share with you this feature giveaway, because it’s for the most adorable patterns I have ever seen.  Sew Sweet Patterns is the place and I just know that I’m going to have too much fun sewing away on styles like this:

It’s reversible!

 

And this:

 

 

This:

 

 

Oh and this:

 

Okay, so I had a really difficult time selecting which patterns to share with you.  There are seriously so many to choose from and they are all adorable!

Sew Sweet Patterns even has cute patterns for the boys:

 

Sew Sweet Patterns can also be found here on Etsy.

What will you have too much fun sewing?  I know that you found several must haves (like I did) at Sew Sweet Patterns!

{Giveaway} My Baby Belts ***ENDED***

My Audi is a tall guy.  He’s 6’4.  That’s where Banjo gets his tallness from.  It’s definitely not from my Brit heritage.  My father is short.  His father was short.  His father and grandfather were short.  So… I’m short!  Banjo gets the tall gene from the Smith side.  I just need to face it and come to terms with the fact that he’s always going to be tall and probably always going to be skinny.  Banjo cannot keep his pants up without a belt.  If he’s belt less then he’s tugging and pulling to avoid the embarrassment of his drawers dropping to the ground.  Making it not so easy to run around the playground with his friends.  Many of the belts out there for his age group are sort of blah.  Okay they are major blah.  I’m talking baby looking with animals on them.  Not fashionable at all.  Blah.  Children’s belts don’t have to be blah.  They can be functional and fashionable!  With My Baby Belts you don’t have to sacrifice the fashion with a belt that is blah.  The kiddos can be high style with a belt that does the job of keeping the pants in the right place.

 

 

Can’t you just picture Banjo sporting this stylish belt?

I can!

 

Or how about this simple, but fashionably classic belt?

Perfect for all wardrobes!

And if Ruby has the skinny gene (which the percentiles are already showing that to be true) then My Baby Belts has her covered too!

I majorly heart this one!  🙂

Are of ’em all so very dandy!

Want to win a belt from My Baby Belts???  Well, then this is your lucky day!  One lucky winner is going to receive a belt of choice from My Baby Belts!  Don’t want to wait to see if you won?  Then use coupon code:  ‘Dandy’ to get 10% off your order!
