cup cozy

Since announcing our move to Austin, all sorts of Texans have come out of the woodwork. I love it! And this cool blogger is known as: golonghorns. Doesn't get more Austin than that. So I checked out her blog and found this cute giveaway. A cup cozy and a tissue holder made from cute Japanese print fabrics. I'm not a coffee drinker but I'm sure my diet coke could use something spiffy. For all the details, click here.

More info here and brought to you by Crafty Girl with Ruffle. That name is calling to me.

These are the coolest looking bikes. I can only imagine how fun (and possibly heavy?) it would be to cruise around with the kids in a light-turquoise Madsen. They give away a bike each week. Click on the picture or the link above to enter!

Sweetie Pie Bakery Felt Cake

What a clever idea, from Sweet Pie Bakery. A felt cake with decorations that come on and off. I can just picture my Lucy redecorating this cake for HOURS. What fun! To enter, see the guest giveway on Grosgrain here.
Not sure when the giveaway ends.

Camera Strap SlipCover

I've seen variations of these floating around etsy. But usually they've been a little more $ than I'd like to spend. Shealynn's shop, Shea B, has great pricing though and her straps are super cute! Looks like they're slipcovers for your camera strap (rather than an actual new strap). If you'd like to enter to win one, click here. She's doing a guest giveaway on the blog Make it and Love it.
