Nella Anne Designs {GIVEAWAY}

 I am in heaven! I love Nella Anne Designs! I love Jacqueline's story of how she started her Etsy shop too. 
Nella Anne Designs was born shortly after her Grandmother, Carol Ann, passed away. After her passing, she began to search out ways that she could continue on with her legacy. She has learned so much about being a woman of beauty and grace through both of her Grandmothers, Nellie & Carol Ann (hence the name, "Nella Anne").She enjoys creating new pieces for her daughters as well as her customers. Custom Orders have become her favorite in this business. Creating a special piece for someone's little princess is priceless. Nella Anne Designs has been such a blessing to her family. She is able to do the things that are the most important to her, which is, help support her husband, stay at home with her children, and continue on with her passion to create and own Nella Anne Designs.
Jacqueline's pieces in her shop are gorgeous and unique! I love them...and so do my girls!
She sent me a set of adorable korker bows that my girls look adorable in.

 {perfect to wear alone or on a headband}

 You all know my favorite for my girls are headbands...and I love brown {pink too}!
This flower headband is one of my favorites!
 {It is dressy, yet can also be worn with jeans}
 Her bows and headbands are made very well and can even take a little beating from the girls. {my girls tested them out}
 She has many more unique designs over at her Etsy shop, here are a few more of my favorites {on my wish list}

C & C's Wood Creations Review

Hey all you sports fans and even those of you that aren't! I would have to say, this might be the answer you were looking for, for that sports fan for Christmas. Chuck over at C & C's Wood Creations made me this great wooden pub sign. My brother is a pretty hard person to buy for, so when I came across C & C's Wood Creations, I knew I had to have their Stealers pub sign. My brother is a die hard Stealers fan, so this fits him perfect! Take a peek....
 {my brother rarely reads my blog, so I hope he doesn't start now}

I love the imperfection look to the wood and the letters are painted so well! It gives them a little bit of a worn look to them.
{I really hope my brother loves it as much as I do!}
All the designs on their signs are hand drawn and hand painted. Look at the detail C & C's Wood Creations puts into each sign!

What about one of these for your hubby's/boyfriends man cave?!
 Remember I said, even if you aren't a sports fan?! Check out these other signs...http://ny-image0.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.177102324.jpg

Head on over to C & C's Wood Creations to check out their great work. Whether for a gift, for yourself or something else....these are great signs that would look good on any wall or outside any store/bar. 
Stay tuned this week to see how you can win your own adorable bows and headband, just like these!
 {It's definitely in my top Etsy stores!}

Birthday Diva!

Now that everyone has received Kenzie's invite to her 1st birthday...

Without further ado....
  {I love it!}

I am not sure what we are doing for the cake, but I LOVE these ideas! I want to do a 2 tier cake and Kenzie's godmother {Christy} is going to be helping me. She is much better at cakes than I!

 Her high chair banner!
Black, pink and white pom poms will be hung from the ceiling!

Here are some of the pics that Erin took for her invite...

It will be a party to remember! 
I can't believe it is almost here!

 Sometimes life gets so busy that we forget to think of the things that we take for granted. 
{I am guilt of this}

There are so many small things in life that I take for granted and forget to be thankful for everyday...

* I am able to wake up and get out of bed and walk around

* Having a house to live in {with heat in the winter}

* 3 Healthy children {who brighten my everyday}

* Family who is supportive and loving

* Grandparents for my children {I sadly have none left}

* Having a job where I can be with my kids everday

* Having a husband who is supportive, loving and patient

* Food to eat {even though I often eat too much}

* Toys for my kids to play with {and often save my sanity}

...The list could go on!

Don't forget to count your blessings daily and help out those around you less fortunate!
 Remember...be thankful everyday because there is always someone who has a worse situation than yours!

Happy Holidays!
