Back to School! {Monthly Giveaway Series}

I know this makes me seem old when I say this…but, I cannot figure out where this year has gone!  It is hard to believe that Back to School season is already upon us. It’s even crazier that many of you have already started back! We’ll be heading into the Fall and Holiday seasons before we know it. 

I can’t really say I miss being in school, but I do miss back to school shopping. There is something fabulous about brand new pencils and notebooks. I can’t send you all a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils {<— name that movie!}, so how about a giveaway instead? You can enter to win $50 worth of handmade goodies to help you prep for the new school year!

Pamper Your Pet {giveaway}

Hi there! It’s time again for our monthly giveaway! Our fellow pet lovers won’t want to miss this one. You have the opportunity to win a few handmade necessities for your furry loved one. {Our pups and kitties deserve a little handmade goodness, too!}. 


To start out, we have a Small Organic Pet Bed Cover from Kentucky Bluebird, valued at $32.

“Recycle an old pillow into a bed for your small pet! This caramel brown small pet bed cover is made to fit a standard-sized pillow (20 x 26) and is suitable for cats or small dogs.This cover makes keeping your pet bed clean easy, by giving you the option to wash the cover only, instead of the whole bed.

Stuffing the bed is as easy as putting pillows in a pillow case. Velcro keeps the pillow sleeves tightly shut. The fabric is heavy duty 100% Organic, GOTS Certified Cotton Duck. You can feel good about using items made from organic fabric, knowing the environmental impact of the fabric manufacturing was significantly less than that of regular fabric.

The cover is machine-stitched, and made with industrial strength upholstery thread, making it scratch and chew-resistant. The cover is machine washable on cold. Take the insert or pillow out prior to washing and wash it all in the same load. Hang the bed outer to dry.We make pet bed covers in medium, large and extra large as well. Please see our shop for other options.”

il_570xN.434502048_dqufI was first introduced to Rhianna’s work when I stumbled upon her booth at the Renegade Craft Fair. I instantly fell in love with her work and have enjoyed following her “Doodle-a-day” on Instagram. Take a peek around her shop! I’m eyeing a few of her prints for our new gallery wall. 

“This charming print is perfect bee lovers and would be a whimsical addition to studio or any room in your sweet little home. This illustration was carefully hand-painted in watercolors by me. It is digitally printed on heavy weight matte archival paper and each print is signed.”
