 Whew!  We made it to Day 3!

Did you see the other 10 giveaways?  Get in on those!

Today I have five more…so let’s get it started…

Or as Eddie would say, “Let’s DO this, MOM!”

I am starting today with one of my very favorite friends and shops.

The burp cloth that is our latest love from Kristina.

What Kristina  has to say about her shop, Sew Curly:

Sew Curly was born out of my need to be more than just a mother to the 3 girls we had in 3 years. I took my passion for sewing and designing and put it towards creating things that made our lives as a family easier and more convenient. Every product I make is thoroughly tested by my own kids (who are very honest and picky critics). Every product is used daily in our home, minus the baby items that we have now outgrown. I love doing custom orders and collaborating with customer’s visions. In the shop and you’ll find snack and sandwich bags, chalkcloth placemats, personalized blankets & burp cloths, and appliquéd shirts & onesies, along with some other items. Go and take a look at the shop and you’ll find that I make things you’ll love for the loves in your life.

I think we own at least one of everything in her shop…except those placemats…which I will totally have to change.  The boys need those.  Obviously.

We have this for Charlie in blue and white with a “C” on it…

And he has one of these which is PERFECT in the car and helps him fall asleep (because he likes something by his face)

Ah, I could put up pictures all day long, but you can go peek at her shop yourself and see all the goodness!

Cute, right?

Well Kristina is about to let you pick some of that cute out for yourself with a $30 shop credit!

A Handmade Summer: Sew Curly

I really don’t know how to even start to tell you about the love I have for Kristina.  I seriously have a handmade shop crush on her shop, Sew Curly.

First?  I love a good play on words.

Second?  Cort’s nickname in high school, college, and still among some people is Curly.

Third?  Have you seen my son’s hair?  Case closed.

Sew Curly?  Yes…I live a Curly life.

monkey birthday party shirt!

Kristina makes some of the cutest things in the universe.  That T-shirt up there?  Just for Eddie’s 2nd birthday party next week!  That monkey is the exact same one that is on all this decorations and on his invitations.

Birthday Shirt! Woot!

And this one was made using jungle animals (he adores animals) so he can broadcast his new age!  I am in love with this!

Kristina is a sewing/embroidery machine.  We also have this cute little snack pouch that she made and embroidered Eddie’s name on.  It is not just convenient for carrying snacks around in my purse, it’s also totally machine-washable.  So when I put cheese-it’s in there for too long and the pouch turned orange?  No problem!  Just toss it in the washer and presto!  Clean!

mmmm! snacks!

See? You would never know that an hour before?  it was totally orange.  Ahem.

The Legal Stuff:  Kristina sent me the Tshirts for Eddie for review purposes, but I previously bought the snack bag with my own money.  The opinions are all my own.  Sew Curly is providing the spoils for this giveaway.
