I have three really fun sponsors to share with you today! I'm honored to work with these beautiful women who are passionate about their blogs and/or shops. 

First up, we have The Pink Jellybean. When I first saw this shop, my jaw dropped. Everything is so stunning & I think if I had started a business post-kids, this is exactly the "look & feel" of a shop I'd start would aim for. I just LOVE browsing through it, and I'll admit, it kinda gives me baby fever! I can't wait to have little girl that I can dress in The Pink JellyBean apparel. Elizabeth, will you make one of each of these dresses for me in a grown up size? :) 
Pretty please??


The Pink Jellybean specializes in children's apparel. Using designer fabrics to make everything chic and unique. Some exciting things on the horizon for The Pink Jellybean are designs for moms, headbands, and jewelry! I can't wait to see. 

Today, Elizabeth is giving away a $25 store credit to her shop. You can also use code "summership" for free shipping!

Don't you love finding new blogs to read? There's an endless amount of blogs out there, but I love connecting with other bloggers that have the same passions as I do. The next sponsor is the Dance Your Way to Zion blog, written by Kristance. 


Here's a little blurb from Kristance. 
Hey-o! I'm Kristance, a 25 year old wife and mom to three absolutely adorable kids: Isaiah (3.5 years), Eleanor (2.5 years), and Jackson (4.5 months). I'm a tattooed, pierced, Jesus loving, sweets baking, blog happy gal! I blog about my everyday life and the trials and joys of having three little ones under the age of 4! I also host a weekly recipe link up on Tuesdays called "Tasty Tuesdays." Come check us out!

((her precious kiddos!))

Today, Kristance is treating you guys!!!! She still wanted to participate in the giveaway even though she doesn't have a shop, so she purchased with her own moolah and is giving away a $15 store credit to MY shop! 


Make sure you check out Kristance's blog and find her on twitter!

I am a sucker for cute prints to frame and decorate my house with...especially when it entails some sort of woodland creature. Birds, foxes, owls win.

Pointsies is an Etsy shop that specializes in high quality prints for your home, studio, office, etc. Elizabeth creates realistic looking sketches and fills them digitally with color. I LOVE the look of her work! It's so unique and beautiful. Keep your eyes peeled for some upcoming stationery!


Elizabeth is such a sweetheart and is offering one of you readers ANY 5X7 in her shop that you (the winner) want. I'd choose the wren. Ahem. Not that anyone asked me. Anywho, you can also use the code "YELLOW15" for 15% off your purchase. Score!

  9. my favourite items in their shops:

    points art: oh my god, so many lovely prints.... i like this one: Fox Print - Lil' Foxy on White - 8 x 10

    the pink jelly bean: the necktie onesie is tooooo cute! :D

    Kristance doesn't have a shop.. so i couldnt really pick an item. But since she gives away a store credit to your shop, i think i would use it on this item: Doubled Up - Rosette Headband. I think its very sweet.

    Thanks for this giveaway :)
