Back To School Bonanza Giveaway #5: The Vintage Pearl

I am going BACK TO SCHOOL this week, and I thought I would end the summer with a bang…of giveaways!

The Vintage Pearl.  Sigh…this was my very first love affair with online hand-crafted lovlies.  The personalized jewelry and keepsakes are perfect for absolutely anyone in your life!




A little “about” The Vintage Pearl (per the website):
“The Vintage Pearl began in 2007 as a creative outlet while staying home and raising our kids. It quickly blossomed into a business and continues to grow! I feel extremely blessed to be able to work while home with my kids!

“We use only the finest materials in our hand stamped jewelry, every piece is entirely made of sterling silver, from the chains to the jump rings, unless otherwise noted in the description.”


This is one of my most favorite that I hope to own someday…the “you are my sunshine” necklace!  I think many momma’s like me sing that song to their wee ones.  What a special way to cherish those moments!

Back To School Bonanza Giveaway #4: Bird E Studios

I am going BACK TO SCHOOL this week, and I thought I would end the summer with a bang…of giveaways!

I have fallen HARD in love with Bird E Studios and everything that the lovely Erika makes and sells there.  I also think Erika is pretty great too.


What Erika has to say about Bird E Studios:
“Bird E Studios began as my creative outlet (I’m a business analyst by day, and nearly immediately upon starting that gig I realized that I would quickly go nuts if all I had to live for was my cubicle and computer) and when demand for my gifts grew beyond just birthday and holiday gifts I opened an online store front. It has been such a fun way to meet so (SO) many lovely people. The connections have been my favorite part of this whole business owner thing. Being so new (opened officially June 1, 2010) I am constantly adding products.”



She makes everything from pouches to diaper clutches to dog collars to bibs, to pacifier clips and more!  I would be lying if I said I didn’t want a dog just to put one of her cute collars on it!

Erika’s beautiful designs are perfect for a baby gift or to treat your own little one!

You can read Erika’s blog, The Simple Life of Love here or follow her on twitter here!

I am SO excited to announce that The Sluiter Nation Back To School Bonanza’s fourth giveaway is a gift bundle including a bib, a paci clip, and a diaper clutch of the winner’s choice from Bird E Studios!

Back To School Bonanza Giveaway #3: Gussy

I am going BACK TO SCHOOL this week, and I thought I would end the summer with a bang…of giveaways!

This giveaway is extra special not just because it’s Gussy (hello!  who DOESN’T love Gussy?!?), but because in the process of working with Maggie, I found out that she graduated from the high school where I work!  In fact, she graduated just months before I was hired.  Makes me feel a wee bit old, but makes this back to school giveaway super special to me!


A wee bit about Gussy:
Gussy is a colorful line of ruffled accessories. Each ruffle is machine sewn free-hand style, making each ruffle unique. Almost 2 years ago Maggie sat down at her kitchen table –she wanted to learn how to sew. And here she is now, offering zipped pouches of all sizes, laptop bags, tote/diaper bags, and wristlet/clutches (all with her signature ruffle) to those that love a little flair 🙂 And, she’s recently quit her day job to pursue Gussy full-time. To read more about Gussy, click here.



The Nester wrote, “Gussy has a juicy shop full of all kinds of wonderfulness, and her blog, Gussy has a lot to say, is quickly becoming a crafter’s headquarters where she features different crafters/artists and writes about her experience.”


Sigh…I love that signature ruffle!  Gets me EVERY time!

You can follow Gussy on twitter here!

I am SO excited to announce that The Sluiter Nation Back To School Bonanza’s third giveaway is $30 shop credit at www.shopgussy.com!!! (sorry, all baby blankets are exempt from this giveaway credit).

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment here telling me what you love best about Gussy!

Back To School Bonanza Giveaway #2: JSancken Photography

I am going BACK TO SCHOOL this week, and I thought I would end the summer with a bang…of giveaways!

 


My lovely bloggy/twitter friend, Julie of …back to the basics… has turned into a photographer! She takes LOVELY pictures of nature, kiddos, and families.


Recently she started her own photography blog where you can learn more about her and her passion for photography.  You can also purchase prints she has taken of beautiful nature scenes.

This one reminds me of the path that lead from my parents’ backyard out through their woods to the back fields where the blueberry bushes are.  I could see it from my bedroom window.  I am in love with this print.

And this one just makes me all happy.  I LOVE little happy flowers!  They are a reminder of the beauty that is there if we just look.
