I have one last really cute giveaway for Christmas!  The Land of Nod is offering 20% off of rockers and ride-ons today (12/17) and to celebrate, I’m giving away one adorable Little Piggy Rocker (I mean, seriously, that face!  I can’t handle it!).  To enter, just leave a comment on this blog post, and I’ll be closing the giveaway on Friday (12/19), so you’ll have time to get this little guy in time for Christmas.

First, I’m excited to be giving away $350 to Minted!  If you are interested, just leave a comment on this post, and the winner will be announced Wednesday morning 12/17 (closes tomorrow at midnights, so you have enough time to do a little Christmas shopping with it!).  They have especially great options for grandparent gifts!

Minted hosted a Christmas card stuffing party in collaboration with Southern Living just before Thanksgiving.  It was such a fun time, and we were able to order our cards ahead of time, and then stuff and stamp and address them while spending time with friends.  Such a great idea for a party, and it felt so great to have our cards done early (for once!).  Plus, we got to sample some extra delicious Southern Living treats from their Christmas edition, and it was all so delicious!!

Mmmm, gingerbread cupcakes!

I love that Cheers card, and it’s extra gorgeous in the foil.

And how adorable are these cards, with the mini car and tree on top?  That velvet ribbon is also so lovely.

Minted now has a studio here in Atlanta, which I’m really excited about, because they will be having regular events.  I love seeing the Atlanta creative community grow!  I was able to collaborate on a workshop recently making inspiration boards from their beautiful new fabric line.  It’s all so pretty, and it’s hard to pick a favorite, but I do love that over the hills pattern!

These boards were super easy to make, and turned out really cute.  They would be great for displaying Christmas cards, or bits of inspiration!  We used Minted frames, cork board, and fabric.

Love this display on the wall in embroidery hoops!  Sweet Krista of Blue Eyed Yonder provided all the vintage furniture goodness, and Meredith of Amy Osaba created the drool-worth florals.

It was such a fun night, and I’m looking forward to more events in the Minted space!  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway by leaving a comment below!!

(note: this giveaway is now closed!  Congrats to Susan M., the winner!)

I’m excited to share that Land of Nod is having daily discounts on different toy categories each day until 12/17, and today it’s 20% off dolls and stuffed animals!   (And there is a giveaway in this post, so keep reading so you don’t miss it!) If you were thinking about some of their cuteness for your girls (or your little guy – there are stuffed dinosaurs and other boy stuff, too!), it’s a great time to purchase!  Brigie will be getting that sweet little Avery doll and cradle with this adorable bedding and I can’t wait to give it to her.  She loves taking care of anything cuddly and has been making little beds for her animals out of leftover felt I have in my craft stash, so she’ll be over the moon about this! (also pictured is the Christmas tree pillow!) 

And how sweet is that little pram?  I’m so excited to be offering a giveaway for a pram to one of you – to enter just leave a comment below, and the winner will be announced this Saturday (12/13)!

It’s one of those toys you won’t mind leaving out, because it’s just so lovely.  I also love these sweet unicorns!   They are sweet and cuddly, but still stand up on their own, and I know they will be a big hit with my girls.

So, leave a comment to enter the giveaway, and be sure to check out all the plush cuteness that is 20% off today (12/12 only)!

I posted about this Monday, but be sure to enter the Honest Pin to Win giveaway for $1000 towards Honest goodies!  See details here (and, y’all, that gorgeous crib is only $399 and gives a crib to a family in need when you make a purchase)!  Below is my favorite inspiration board from the collaboration, and you can find all the sources to the items on our pinterest board:


Joni"Hi Karen! You can find it here! "

Karen"Please tell me how I can purchase the rocking chair. Thank you! "

Nicole scholz"I love and want this so much!!!! "


Have you heard about the Collective from The Honest Co.?  It’s a pretty great curation of beautiful baby products that share Honest’s commitment to quality and health, and they recently launched this beauty of a crib with Babyletto.  The very best part of this partnership is that when you purchase one of these cribs, they donate a crib to a family in need.  How incredible is that?  And this crib is only $399, so I’m sure these will be going fast.  I adore the modern lines and the mix of light, natural wood with bright white!

To make it even better, Honest is hosting a pin to win giveaway for a $1000 gift card.  Pretty awesome, right?  And, in case you need any inspiration, I worked with Honest on three style boards based on three of their adorable diaper patterns (check them all out here!).  The details on how to enter are on the Honest blog, and be sure to check out our inspiration board here.  Below is a little taste of one of the boards:

Now, go enter, because $1000 to Honest is pretty incredible.  I mean, their diapers are just the sweetest, and it’s so good to know their products are safe and healthy for our little ones!
