chalkspiration

We had a great time making these and hosting a giveaway for StubbyPencilStudio.com!  They are an online boutique specializing in eco-friendly, sustainable, and all natural creative products with children in mind. They are the leading distributor for organic chalk which is perfect for littles whose mouths are just as curious as their minds are creative.  The owner and founder is a mother who believes that beautiful projects start with healthy products and with Easter just around the corner I'm sure the winners will be able to put their gift cards to creative use!
Congrats to our $75 & $50 winners:
@EnchantedLilly8... 
and @SweetHeidiJo!  Can't wait to see what you create with Stubby Pencil Studio's amazing products, as with them and your creative minds the possibilities are nearly endless!  I hope this gave you the perfect incentive to spend even a few more minutes creating with your little loves.  Enjoy!

Make It A Hoppy Easter




The printable is all formatted & ready to print!  

I just added ribbon to the little scalloped boxes that came in a Martha Stewart package that I got a while back.  I bet Hobby Lobby or Michaels has similar things... though slid into a cellophane bag for support I'm sure cupcake liners would be just as cute!  Just hot glue some grograin ribbon on to make it look like a basket and handle.  My new paper shredder worked great for the white grass too since I couldn't find any anywhere.  I also got the white Cadury and Dove eggs at Target!  I hope this gives you some fresh ideas for your classes, teachers, or students this Easter Sunday!  xo

WEEE ARE THE CHAMPIONS thanks to MY FRIENDS!!!

Haven WON!!!  This has been an absolute blast hearing from so many of you and seeing us all join together to support our baby girl! It's been like a lifelong reunion and for that, win or lose, I must thank you, EACH of YOU for taking time out of your lives to show Haven some love! Sometimes "it takes a village" to make amazing things happen and this was no exception! We are so lucky to have you in our lives! 
 feeling loved.
Here's the video of Haven that captured our hearts : http://youtu.be/PkStYoeuS5I

In keeping with the tradition of my name always being botched... this email was no exception.  Haa. 👍  It happens all. the. time.  Though after breaking the AMAZING news they pretty much could've called me whatever they wanted! 😂 Just kidding... sort of. 
Words canNOT even describe how excited we are that Haven won this bedroom makeover from Destination Nursery and Mom's Best Network!  I've had several people say, "Sure.  Haven's YOUR daughter LIKE SHE EVEN NEEDS IT!" As they try to camouflage their annoyance under a chuckle.  Well let it suffice to say there's a reason no one besides close friends and family have ever seen a pic of her room or been in it. ;)  'Nuff said.  Being an interior designer I can't help but feel like Haven's room is the epitome of the expression "the cobbler's children have no shoes" because after living here for almost three years, her only semblance of decor in there was the bed, bedding, and curtains she inherited from her cousin Lexy's beautiful room.  On the brightside there's not a hole to be found on any of her walls! 😜 It will be the perfect blank canvas!  We couldn't possibly be more excited or appreciative to each of you who helped her dream come true!

I have NEVER blasted friends out like this to ask for help in voting for us to win something... probably because we've never won anything in our lives until this week!  Yay!  (This probably helps explain my love of hosting giveaways, as I figure if I don't win 'em at least I can help my friends get hooked up! ;)  HOLLA!!!  If nothing else this has been such a fun opportunity, as Haven's been ecstatic at the mere prospect of winning!  Thanks for sharing your love and time friends!  We appreciate and love each of you!

Haven & Shavonne
