Hey everyone!!
We go through the stages of overflowing blog posts - then we hit a bit of a stand still... so today I am here on this beautiful Sunday morning to liven things up a bit with a giveaway! We haven't done a blanket giveaway in awhile - so that is what we're going. The winner of this giveaway will get to choose their favorite print & minky to design their perfect baby blanket.
We can order in pretty much any print and minky if its not something you see in the choices. Our baby blankets are sized at approx. 30x36... Your prize will ship within 3-4 weeks as with all our custom orders. The winner will be given a listing on etsy that they can use to "check out" - but not pay... as this giveaway is for a completely free blanket. Its just a way that you can leave feedback and track your prize to your door!

Cute, cute CUTE! Concertina is OH SO CUTE! If you are a fan of Amigurumi plush, then Concertina is the place to go!

She has the cutest plush from turtles, mushrooms, whales, elephants, and our favorites, the little jellyfish.

All of her little jellies are custom made... and can be made in any array of colors. And the best part, is she uses safety eyes, so they are baby safe :) If you are like me, and have a love for the Japanese/Kawaii style, you should definitely check her out... her shop is running on low right now, but keep checking back as she plans to add lots of new items very soon :)

Giveaway #9: Stella Grace Boutique

If you remember, last week we talked about creative play for kids... and sort of detaching from all the flashing lights and sounds of the high tech toys and gadgets on the market. Today I want to ramble on about Stella Grace Boutique... A shop focusing on toys inspired by a Waldorf Education. "The educational philosophy's overarching goals are to provide young people the basis on which to develop into free, morally responsible and integrated individuals, and to help every child fulfill his or her unique destiny, the existence of which anthroposophy posits." (thanks Wikipedia) Long story short... a Waldorf Education focuses on imagination and a creative approach to play time... And Stella Grace Boutique has all the goodies you need to support that type of environment.
Kara, the mama behind Stella Grace boutique has some of the cutest toys on the market. I should know... I have quite the collection ;) Over the last few months we have bought one of the 18 inch dolls...a mini blanket baby... a sensory owl rattle...  and Zavery has a custom dinosaur... all skully themed of course :) One of the things on our list to buy are her play silks... You get 6 hand dyed - rainbow colored play silks... they are "17 inch by 17 inch playsilks. They are wonderful for imaginative play, dress up, peek a boo, music and movement, circle time, and SO much more!" But the next MUST HAVE on our list will require a bit of penny saving. Waldorf dolls are pretty expensive, as they are made with very high quality, natural materials... "The face is made from bamboo cotton interlock and you can select a sleeper made from either knit or velour fabrics. The head is formed with 100% clean carded wool, in the traditional waldorf method. With a interlock body stuffed with carded wool too!!" to make it a little easier on the pocket book, she has an 11 inch "baby doll" listed. And we definitely want one :) With some sort of adorable skull nighty of course!
Last but definitely not least, we love her Teething Ring Blanket Loveys... They are "12x12 knit fabric, backed with soft hand dyed cotton velour fabric." Each one has a wooden ring attached with a snap for teething, and can be taken off when the lovey needs to be washed.  Kara made one special for Ashely out of the cutest "I Love You This Much" fabric... with a beautiful blue velour on the back... and of course, one lucky winner will get one too! The winner of this giveaway will get their choice of any custom Teething Lovey...
