*******The giveaway is now closed. Winners announced here!*******
I (finally!) made it to my 100th post! Whew. Don't worry, I'll keep it short so we can get to a fun giveaway. :) Baby B has a set of building blocks he loves to play with and without fail he always picks out the long skinny green blocks. He is always carrying at least one of them around, and we find them all over the house wherever he drops them. We started calling them his "pickles."
It is seriously so cute that he's picked a favorite and we want to remember it forever. And since it's Christmas, my husband had a great idea to keep the memory alive. He screwed a small o-ring into the end of one of the "pickles" and slipped an ornament hook through the hole.
It was so easy and makes a great, sentimental addition to the tree. To finish it off, I used a sharpie to write "Baby B's 'pickle' 2011" down one side. This is a great way to remember some of our favorite things as Baby B grows and now I want to turn everything he loves into ornaments! :)
And now for the part you've all been waiting for.....the GIVEAWAY! I recently bought a fabric covered button thingy-ma-gigger and started making button earrings (idea from here, tutorial here). It's super fun to do (if you're the crafty type you should pick up a button maker and give it a try! I use the 1/2" size) and it's an easy way to make custom, unique earrings for yourself or a friend.
(some of my buttons waiting to be earring...ified?)
If you're not the crafty type, my sister & I have stocked up our Etsy shop with bags, purses, and some great button earrings. They are super cute (and would make great gifts...wink, wink). Which brings us to today's giveaway! I will be giving THREE lucky winners one pair of button earrings of your choice from our Etsy shop!
