Only a couple more weeks left of January, how crazy! This month I have had some super rad sponsors! Make sure you check out their shops and blogs, and give a little handmade love! xo
Kiser Krafts makes unique and wonderful plushies from socks. Kelly also crochets, and is working on a rad collaboration with Cody from Lu & Ed. These awesome hats are open for pre-order with 50% of the sales being donated to Drumm Farm. http://drummforkids.org . Also, if you are looking for some cute Valentine’s Day decor, Kelly just listed this gorgeous crocheted bunting….that I might go buy after I type this post up….Kelly also does an awesome handmade link up on her blog weekly, so make sure to check it out if you have a handmade shop!
Hamburke is a cute shop carrying hair bows, ponytail ribbons, crocheted baby items and reusable sandwich bags and wraps. I’m in love with these crocheted baby booties! Too bad I don’t know anyone having a baby, because they would make the perfect gift! Also, just in time for Valentine’s Day, these crocheted heart clips are just darling!
Common Room is a blog/podcast run by some rad ladies, where they talk about all things Pop Culture, Food, Fitness, and Fashion. Check out this awesome take on Cauliflower Soup. These are also the go to gals for recreating Effie Trinket looks from The Hunger Games. I loved that they had different looks for different skin types and budgets! Lots of super fun posts, so check them out!
Violet’s Buds is an eco-friendly handmade accessories store, overflowing with cuteness. I love all her new hoop art, it’s such a fun and creative way to decorate! Of course I like to brag about my sushi hair clip, you can get your own here. Also, take a look at her awesome blog overflowing with handmade goodness and fun contributor posts. If you have a handmade shop and would like to be featured, you can sign up here!
My Craftily Ever After is an awesome blog by Ashley full of crafts and recipes. If you are a football fan, she has a great post about Superbowl Party foods, with a super cute set up. She also has a great collection of crafty projects in an archive, making it easy for you to find a weekend project. Don’t forget to check out the yummy recipes! I can’t wait to try out a couple of them soon!
Little House of Crafting is one of my favorite stores to buy little geek gifts for myself! Toni makes perler bead art and pinbacks/magnets. If you have a handmade shop, you can order custom buttons with your logo (which i recently did and they are awesome!). I know she is working on perler bead kits, where you can make your own perler art at home! Can’t wait for those! She also features handmade geeky shops on her blog, check it out!
Be sure to check out all these lovely ladies blogs/shops! Thanks for supporting handmade! xo.
PS I have sponsor spots on my blogger, but wanted to show some love on this site too.
I’m making some changes around here, so sorry for the confusion. I’ve decided to move my blog back to blogger after continuous frustration with WordPress. If you would like to continue to follow my blog, please follow me on bloglovin or you can click here.

One year ago I started this blog. Time has flown, this blog has grown and I’ve met lots of great new friends. As a thank you for following, I wanted to do a fun giveaway with a few of my favorite things!
You can win, from left to right:
1. Stickerdoodles Owl Stickers for all your scrapbooking needs or just to cute some stuff up!
3. Burt’s Bees Blueberry and Dark Chocolate Lip Balm, which is my new favorite as crazy as it sounds.
4. Mini Chococat Notebook to carry around and write down all your fabulous ideas in.
5. Hello Kitty Nail Stickers. I’ve never actually tried these, but I’m a fan of nail stickers in general.
6. Washi Tape is one of my favorite things to use on everything. This one has fancy roses.
7. Handmade crayon skull candle, because I like skulls.
8. Skull bracelet of awesomeness!

10. And of course a fun 17″ Scrawny Girl Halloween Doll!
I saw this quiz on Lariats and Lavender, which was linked from Little Chief Honeybee. I miss the good ole blogging days of meme’s, blog buttons, and what’s in your bag posts. So just for fun I thought I’d play along!
1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
There is lots of Amelia cuddling, because she’s a morning person and is pouncing on me and talking non stop. I ask her if she will make me some coffee, and we head to the kitchen where she beats on pots and I make coffee (because she’s only 9 months and can’t reach the coffee maker yet lol).
2. What is the 3rd picture on your phone? Share it!
My cuteface husband from 2011. I’m pretty sure he just got a haircut, which doesn’t happen often. I always take a picture afterwards lol…
This is an oldie from my Polyvore, but it’s pretty much my go to. Flannel. Cats. Red Lipstick. Mocs. Vintage. Coffee. Hat. Also now that I’m a mom and at home I do the most awful thing….I wear leggings ALL THE TIME…I’m iffy about wearing them out in public, but I might get there eventually.
