sponsor highlight + group giveaway: cotton + wood, twillypop, splendor

It's not too late to enter last week's fabric giveaway from My Little Sunshine Fabric! Click here to head to that giveaway post. 

In other housekeeping news, I'm going to do group giveaways a little bit differently, but it's kind of exciting. ONE winner will now be picked. That means ONE winner will win ALL of the prizes that the group giveaway has to offer. Lucky duck!

---

I'm excited to share three of my wonderful sponsors with you today. They are all three super talented ladies with totally different talents and beautiful products to offer. Let's get started!

First up, we have Cotton + Wood. I first started chatting with Rebecca last September when I was planning my HUGE blogiversary giveaway. That was fun wasn't it? :)

Her shop has completely changed direction and I would say it's even more appealing now that she sells pillow covers, FABRIC, and fun fabric flowers. Her work is colorful and happy, which I would venture to say describes sweet Rebecca's personality. 


Rebecca is offering one reader a $25 store credit to her shop! That can get you all kinds of loot, friends. 

PLUS...

It's SO encouraging to me when someone wants to advertise on Yellow Songbird that has a product that is completely unique and their own. Not to mention, that product is fun, pretty, and downright one.of.a.kind. You can imagine my excitement when I started chatting with Sara of Twillypop. She makes jewelry and accessories out of ribbon and pretty pearls that are woven in a way that I have TRULY never ever seen before. SO cool, y'all. 


Sara is offering one reader this pretty pretty necklace! So classy and versatile. 

Not to mention...


---


Splendor is a shop that is full of pretty floral jewelry. I have a necklace from Splendor that I *adore* and it's the perfect layering piece! It adds a pop of coral to a boring outfit and it's quickly become one of my favorites. 


Not to mention, the gal behind Splendor, Laura, is quickly becoming a dear friend. She has such a big heart, is eager to learn and do things with integrity and I just love that. Not to mention, she's a hot mama. Seriously. 

Laura is offering one of these necklaces to the winner of today's group giveaway. The winner gets to pick the color! Can I pick "all of them?" :)

And...

  3. I recently started knitting a lot, so anything I can finish is something I love! But what I made that I truly love is a small scrapbook I made for my mother before she passed away. It was full of pictures of her with my children from their birth through the current date at the time. It meant a lot to her.

  9. I think my favorite thing I ever made was 3 scrapbooks with my two best friends from high school. We each had our own and each one was unique to us but we all put efforts into each other's so that we would have those pieces of each other when we went to college. I still have mine and look at it often to remind myself of that time.

  67. Gee, that's a tough question! I love making the bloom brooches in my shop - it's slightly therapeutic to sit down & hand stitch. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love the idea of being able to customize something to my own personal tastes. One of my favorite things that I made was a simple skirt I sewed (with my Mom's help) when I was 13. I loved that skirt because it was a print that I loved, and it was made to fit me.

    I recently discovered a few decorating themed blogs (Rebecca's being one) that have really inspired me to not just go shopping at the store to find something to suit my tastes, but to actually go to the store to make something that is "my taste."
