BIG, big birthday bash GIVEAWAY!


Today is my birthday, the big year closer to the big 3-0.  Eek!  What better way to celebrate, than to give one of YOU some of my very favorite things, from some of my very favorite people?

Up first we have a sweet giveaway from Kim of The TomKat Studio!  The TomKat Studio needs no introduction, as I'm sure you have all seen Kim's work all over some of the best party planning blogs on the internet (including her own - a constant source of inspiration!), or maybe you've seen her work on HGTV! She is generously offering a $35 store credit to her amazing shop, plus a 10% discount on all purchases with the code "AFD10"

Next up is the awesome Jacqui of Craftee McGee. She makes the most beautiful jewelry and accessories - my current favorite is the amazing feather your nest necklace.  You can personalize the "eggs" to however many children you have.  Today Jacqui is giving away a $20 store credit to her fun shop!

Now comes Megan from Flawed Perfection Jewelry!  Megan is a full-time student, a GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional, and a total sweetheart!  She is giving away a $20 store credit to her shop, which comes at an awesome time since she has a big sale going on right now!  The Glee-inspired necklace is one of my favorites!

Next up is my favorite Southern Belle, Ali.  I got to meet Ali last month at Creative Estates, and she is one of the sweetest people I've ever met!  She has two cute little boys, and an awesome blog and she also makes some of the cutest accessories!!  Her shop of full of cuteness, and today one of you are going to get $20 store credit to it!

* Shop * Blog * Twitter

Then, there is my friend Nicole, who has the cutest shop, Olive Blue.  I love everything she makes (as does Leila, who is rocking one of her mini nester hair clips as I type.  Nicole is giving away a gorgeous wristlet, called Dainty Crush.  It is beautiful!!  I have a wristlet this size (9" x 5") and I use it all the time!  I also have one of her larger wristlets that has become my new staple!  Not only is Nicole giving away the gorgeous Dainty Crush wristlet, but she is also offering a generous 30% discount with the code HEATHER!

And now, the very sweet Elizabeth of Sew Chatty!  I had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth at Creative Estates, and got to see her again last weekend at the Queen Bee Market! She is a doll, and she makes the cutest things!  I especially love her coffee cuffs and she just started making the coolest braided necklaces!  Elizabeth is offering a $25 store credit to her shop!!

Next up is my friend, Cristy of Paperlili.  Leila and Gianna are lucky enough to own several of Cristy's pretties, and I'm sure you've seen a few of them on What She Wore Wednesday.  Cristy hand makes each and every creation herself, and lays each crystal - somebody give that girl a massage and a green tea frappuccino stat!  Cristy has some awesome celebrity clients (including a favorite around here - Taylor Swift!) and she is one of the nicest people ever!  Her creations truly are amazing, and one of you is going home with your very own Drama Queen shirt!  Seriously - I'm jealous!

If you're even a semi-regular blog reader you have all seen some of my amazing ruffled hoodies, and read all about my love for Evy's TreeAmy, the genius behind Evy's Tree is one of the most kind-hearted people I've ever met, and the girl has some seriously awesome taste!!  Check out her shop - I feel like I have to own it all.  I could single-handedly be the Bay Area Evy's Tree representative!  Amy is generously offering one lucky reader their choice of any hoodie in stock!  Again, I am jealous!

I can't very well host a giveaway without giving you something myself, now can I??  How's about a few of my favorite things?  First, I'd like to give you your choice of any in-stock ring!  Then, how's about a necklace from my new "Celebration Collection"?  It's called "The Sofie" and I love it.  (The entire "Celebration Collection" is coming soon, I swear....every time I make some new pieces they are bought before I can photograph them and put them online!), three mini lotions from Bath and Body Works - coconut mango, coconut pineapple and coconut passionfruit.  I couldn't decide which smell I loved most so I bought them all, and also my {current} favorite cd - Glee Presents: The Warblers.

Oh more giveaway for you - how's about $40 store credit from Gussy??  My sweet friend Maggie/Gussy needs no introduction, but just in case you've been living under a rock.....Maggie Whitley is the owner/designer behind the handmade shop Gussy Sews, featuring ruffled accessories. Give a Gussy as a gift, or keep it for yourself :) Maggie also blogs about her journey into the handmade industry and is celebrating her "1-year as solo Gussy Sews" this week - make sure to go enter her giant giveaway going on now!
