Jacks and Roxanne {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I really love living in a small town and especially love the sense of community, and I admit that I can get a little over-excited when I think about community workers — there’s just something about the idea of each person having a specific job or role that contributes to helping other people.  I think that the mail service is ingenious, and I’m almost more excited about seeing the garbage/recycle truck each week than my two year old is.  Teachers and police officers are saints, and I love feeling like I’m doing some good by pulling over to the side of the road while the fire engine and ambulance go roaring by.  I’m so grateful for doctors during our well-baby visits and during our sick-baby visits, and I can’t imagine what I would do without our trusty Shell Oil station nearby to change the oil on our vehicles every few months.

I feel this same way about skills and talents, and I know that mine are to teach piano lessons and comma splices.  I love that there are people who like to cook delicious meals, create amazing cakes, clean and organize homes, and sew beautiful creations.  Mostly, though, I love these people because then I can focus on teaching piano lessons and comma splices in exchange for their services.  🙂

 The creators of Jacks and Roxanne are two of those women who have amazing talents and skills related to sewing and crafting, and their creations are perfect for moms-to-be and young children.

 My favorite item in their shop is the customizable, hand-painted Maternity Shirt that announces when your baby is due!  Gone are the days of being told that the baby should be coming any day now (when you’re only in your second trimester) or having questioning stares as to if you’re really pregnant or if you just ate a little too much.  These are perfect for maternity pictures, and I love the simplicity of the font that keeps these shirts looking classy.

month

After baby comes, this Monthly Onesie Set is the perfect way to see the baby grow each month and to document the changes that take place.  You can choose different colors for the onesies, along with the fabric for the numbers and whether or not you’d like the name included.  These are a great baby shower gift for a friend or family member!

 Jacks and Roxanne also offers other adorable onesies with appliqued designs, like this Baby Chick Easter Onesie that is perfect for springtime in general!

They also offer larger sizes with appliqued designs, like this Striped Airplane Toddler T-Shirt with, hands down, the cutest model.  🙂

I know that it’s baby season on my Facebook News Feed right now, and I can imagine it would be about the same for you!  If you’re looking for a fun, personalized gift for someone you know is expecting or are looking for something special for yourself, head over to Jacks and Roxanne!

We found our dream home!  And, we live in it right now!  I’m really not kidding – our home is in a great neighborhood, in good proximity to everything we need, has four large bedrooms, lots of natural light, an amazing layout, and plenty of room to grow.  The only problem?  It’s a rental, and we’re in the process now of waiting (impatiently!) for my husband’s orders to move next year.

One of the reasons it’s been able to stay in such good condition even as a rental is because our landlord has lots of restrictions, one of which being that we can’t paint.  In trying to make our house a home, though, we’ve run into problems with personalizing.  Specifically, I was looking for something to put above our large king-size bed that would make the room more personal, add some color, and fill the space.

I was so happy to find Blue Couture Design with lots of great options to help me do all three of those things with a custom vinyl saying that would easily be removed when we move on to our next adventure!

Straight from their Etsy site, Blue Couture Design “was founded in 2010 as a creative outlook from our corporate jobs.  With backgrounds in graphic and apparel design we collaborated to create a shop filled with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, for anyone!”

I have found that last part to be completely true, as their inventory changes and their offerings increase!  Here are some of my favorite things from each of their categories:

All About the Home:  Ruler Growth Chart Vinyl

Clams and a Ham Dog Designs {Giveaway} — CLOSED

When I had my first son, I remember a friend of mine asking if I wanted to drive with her to Palm Springs (a little over an hour away) to get her son’s picture taken.  I agreed to go, and I had a great time shopping in the mall while they took pictures.  When she dropped us off at home that afternoon, she asked if I was up for it again the next month, and so our tradition began.  The irony, though, was that I didn’t clue in to getting picture of MY son taken at the same time!  I’m jealous now of the 5×7 framed pictures she had on her stairwell — 12 pictures (one for each month) of her son and another 12 pictures of her daughter.  It’s amazing to see the changes in such a short period of time!

When I came across Clams and a Ham Dog on Etsy, I thought immediately of my friend, and I knew that these onesie stickers were the best idea!

Jessica has a variety of designs for her onesie stickers that can be used each month for these special monthly pictures to document those changes.  I love that they can be used on any outfit and that the stickers remind you of their age in that photo.  As much as I try, I still have a hard time remembering exactly how old my boys are in some pictures.  :(  Too bad I didn’t have these darling boy necktie designs:

 

And, my sister-in-law who just had her fifth baby girl would love these adorable pink and aqua colored stickers for girls:

There are also ones for holidays — these are my absolute favorite!  Cost-effective (no more buying special onesies to wear for one day and then never use again!) and festive for each occasion.

See for yourself – look at this darling baby girl styling her own onesie stickers from Clams and a Ham Dog:

Clams and a Ham Dog also features stickers for older children as well, with stickers for 12-24 months and others for big sister/brother.  Here’s an adorable shot of her excited big sister sporting her own “Big Sis” sticker:

Notice the tutu in the above pictures?  Clams and a Ham Dog also features a bundle pack with a tutu and a set of monthly stickers.  What a great idea!

 These make fabulous, unique gifts for expectant mothers and are great for your own children.  Head on over to Clams and a Ham Dog and take a look at all the adorable (or handsome!) designs!

Clams and a Ham Dog is giving away one set of onesie stickers (your choice of design!) to Dandy readers!  Be sure to enter below!
