Celebrate Kate Giveaway: Eleri Evans Designs


It’s my birthday week, so I am celebrating stuff I love…and I love YOU guys!

So for my birthday?  I am giving YOU presents with GIVEAWAYS and DISCOUNTS!

We have made it to the final giveaway…

Eleri Evans Designs

Eleri Evans Designs is the result of the lovely Stacey!  And here she is to tell you about her shop:

My shop is named after my paternal grandmother, Eleri Evans. She was a mother, a wife, an amazing Nana and an extraordinary artist. She is my creative inspiration and she is dearly missed!  I paint, make jewellery, but my when my pregnancy nesting instincts kicked in I started making things for my babies.  Friends and family started making requests and encouraged me to open my etsy shop.  At this point I make burp cloths, bibs, stroller blankets, adult minky blankets, scarves, lanyards,  wash cloths, tutus and coffee cozies. My creative juices are flowing, so more items are to come! I do custom orders too.  All items are made by me in my pet-free, smoke-free studio.  Happily married to my husband for over 12 years, we have an 8 year old son and 18mth old twin girls.

I am already in love with Stacey’s creations!  Check them out:

People?  I ordered a custom adult size blanket and let me tell you, it is the softest, coziest thing EVER!  Next?  I want a cute coffee cozie!

You want some of her goods too?  Yeah, you do.

You COULD go shopping right now!  Stacey is generously offering ALL of us 33% off (hey!  that’s my age!)  That is amazing!  All you have to do is enter the code SLUITER33 at checkout to get your discount!

Wait!  There’s more!

Stacey is giving one of you $33shop credit to Eleri Evans Designs toward anything in her shop!
