Kelly’s Funky Kreations {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Before we had kids, I used to enjoy doing crafts and projects in my spare time. There’s something to knowing you put your blood, sweat and tears into something that makes it that much more meaningful to you. However, after I had kids (and especially because my first two were less than two years apart), I ran out of time and energy to do crafts. It’s a hobby I know I will get back into after my kids are a bit more grown and I have more time on my hands (so, in like, 20 years). But for now, I can just live vicariously through other crafty people who make crafting a priority!

Kelly’s Funky Kreations is an Etsy shop with a variety of homemade items and a ton of personality! Kelly is a mom of three boys from South Carolina who started making watches and jewelry because she needed a creative, “girly” outlet. Since she is from South Carolina, a lot of her designs are inspired by the State’s two big universities– Clemson and South Carolina. She makes Girl’s Hair Bows and Door Wreaths in both University’s colors. Her collection also includes hair bows, stethoscope covers, boy’s shirts, safety pin watches, earrings, bracelets and wreaths. Here are some of her fun designs:

I chose to review one of Kelly’s adorable Boy’s Tie T-Shirts.  She makes them in a Mustache Print (which I chose), an SC Gamecock print, two different Chevron prints, and a new Halloween print! The shirt is a standard T-shirt from Target but it is a thick material that is true to size (though it is 100% Cotton, so it will likely shrink). The Mustache fabric is a great print and she cut it expertly so the mustaches fit perfectly in the shape of the tie. She sewed the fabric on very securely and I am not worried at all about the design peeling off. Though it’s a simple design and concept, I can tell she put a lot of work and effort into making this shirt, and I’m sure that same work ethic is transferred to all of her creations.

The Tie T-Shirts are just $10.00, which is a totally great deal considering how cute and one-of-a-kind they are. Most designs can be made on a onesie for babies and a variety of T-shirt sizes for older boys. Her bows and earrings start at just $3.00 and her beautiful handmade wreaths are only $45.00, so all of her prices are very fair for the amount of work she’s putting into her designs. She’s always adding new designs, so be sure to connect with Kelly on Facebook and Pinterest, and of course to check out her Etsy page to see all of her Funky Kreations!

Cheap Cookie Cutters {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

My four year old son is absolutely enthralled with anything related to geography — he watches YouTube videos of the Animaniacs singing the United States songs with the capitals, and spends hours on his world map magnetic puzzle.  It’s a little overwhelming sometimes, especially when he came up with a great idea the other day to make United States cookies!

I was excited to come across Cheap Cookie Cutters — a website that offers almost any cookie cutter you can imagine for an incredibly reasonable price.  I would have loved to get him the set of cookie cutters with each of the 50 states, but we chose instead to get this one:

He loved it!  We set out to make cookies as soon as we got it, and he spent lots of time afterwards using frosting to mark different states and capitals.

Here are some of my favorite cookie cutters from the Cheap Cookie Cutters website :

I would love to use this Large Snowman for one of our Twelve Days of Christmas activities!

This cute Doll Head Cookie Cutter would be so cute for a little girl’s birthday party or for a fun baby shower!

These fun Mustache Cookie Cutters would have been perfect for my husband’s 30 birthday party that we celebrated just a couple of months ago — we played a rousing game of “Stick the ‘Stache” on a large poster print of my husband!  (Thank you, Staples, for the $2.99 engineer print!  Check that out if you haven’t already…)

Cheap Cookie Cutters is giving away one Batman cookie cutter (2″, 4″, or 6″) to a Dandy reader!
