Taylor Joelle Designs {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.

A friend of mine was recently on the local news showing off some of her favorite hassle-free items for moms.  I thought they were all pretty cool, but I wondered how the last item would fit in.  The last item was a cute knit hat that didn’t necessarily make going out with baby less of a hassle, but as she put it, sometimes its easier to be more patient with our kids when they are dressed cute!  True?

tjlogoGuilty.  Its just so hard to lose your cool when your little human is dressed like a baby model!  This would be motivation enough for me to always dress my kids to the nines, and if I could dress them entirely in Taylor Joelle outfits, I’m sure I could never get upset with them!

greenWhat makes their clothing line so fabulous is their top quality fabrics and chic designs.  Like a good quilt, every piece of Taylor Joelle looks perfectly put together with time, thought, and a personal hand-made touch.

ss-home-52Taylor Joelle has stunning collections that are so perfectly coordinating, you could buy one of everything in that collection and have your children’s wardrobe covered for your next family pictures.  Done.

I’ve been a huge fan of Taylor Joelle Designs since I reviewed a little girls dress for them back in January.  I love how they are often introducing new collections.  The latest is a favorite of mine!

collectionThe Black Tie Collection is full of black, white, and bows!  My wedding in a nutshell, haha!  These colors are so creamy and the black bow will always be a classic.

We reviewed the Bow Top (sold for $28) and the Mint Tutu with Bow Leggings (sold for $40), and I had the best baby model to help me out!

I LOVE this ensemble!  Can I have those leggings in my size?  The tutu is soft and not at all a scratchy tulle, and the multiple layers are great for twirling.

bow3Truly, this top could go with anything (any print, any color), and I like how the tutu is attached to the leggings so there are not multiple layers to get tangled up in.  The bright mint color makes this perfect for holiday pictures!

So stinkin cute, right?!  Would you love to get your hands on something cute from Taylor Joelle?

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!

I hope everyone had a most wonderful holiday break!  Our Christmas and New Years with family was simply wonderful, and its great to be back a-giveaway-ing!  We spent our Christmas with my in-laws, and my sister-in-law is a professional quilter and runs a perfectly inspiring blog showing off her creations.  What makes her quilts so stunning are her fabric choices–top quality, vibrant colors, chic design, etc.  I instantly thought of her when I started perusing the clothing collections of Taylor Joelle.  Similarly, what makes their clothing line so fabulous is their top quality fabrics and chic designs.  Like a good quilt, every piece of Taylor Joelle looks perfectly put together with time, thought, and a personal hand-made touch.

 I owed a friend of mine a favor, and to pay my debt, I kidnapped her daughter for the morning, dressed her up, and we had a little photoshoot.  Isn’t she adorable?  Here she is wearing the Uptown Tunic Dress from the Midnight In Manhattan collection.
