Secret Santa Gift

Being a member of the CASTeam on Etsy has many benefits.  One of my favorites is participating in the Secret Santa exchange.

This year I received a package from Jen of Aloquin full of goodies.  She sent me some fabric, some yummy chocolates (which didn't even make it into the picture haha) and a handmade journal.  I have already started using it as a prayer book.

A big thanks to Jen for my lovely gifts and thanks also to the gals that organized this year.

Show Me Your Photos - Chalkboard Mat and Coffee Sleeve Giveaway

My very happy girls in their beautiful rainbow dresses by Banana Orange Apple

I love to see photos of my awesome customers enjoying their new handmade goods that they have purchased from me.  When you take the time to share a photo with me it brightens my day.  I always try to share photos of my girls enjoying their new things, like the above beautiful dresses, because I know how much it means to the person that made the item.

So, to encourage you all to share your photos I decided to do a little giveaway!  To be entered in for 2 chalkboard mats of your choice AND a coffee sleeve of your choice all you have to do is send me a photo of your loved one with one of my products.  It can be a photo of a little one opening their birthday gift of a chalkboard mat, or you enjoying your cup of coffee at the local shop with your coffee sleeve, or your toddler playing with their set of bean bags, or your BFF opening her baby gift set at her baby shower or whatever you can think of!

Just send the photo to me at bamcraftymommas (at) yahoo (dot) com, without the spaces and with the symbols instead of course OR post it to my Facebook Page.  Please let me know your state/country when you submit your photo so we can see where on the globe the photo came from.  You will then be entered into the drawing for the 2 chalkboard mats and 1 coffee sleeve.  You can send your pictures in until Friday July 5th at 8pm EST when I will choose and announce the winner.  Please be sure to only send pictures that you are ok with me sharing on my facebook page as they will all be posted there.

Thank you all for sharing a little bit of your lives with me and happy photo sharing :)

Very Jane Deal - Chevron Coffee Sleeves

I am once again offering a deal through Very Jane on my handmade chevron coffee sleeves.

The deal will run January 14-17 and it is a great deal.  My normal retail price on these is $8 each but through Very Jane I am selling them at 26% off for $5.99.

I LOVE my coffee sleeves and have several around including in my house, my car and my purse.  They are wonderful for hot drinks as they help to keep my coffee/tea/hot chocolate warm while protecting my hand from the heat.  I also love to use my cozies on cold drinks.  I am sensitive to the cold and condensation and the sleeve holds all of that away from my skin.

You can check out the deal HERE.

These are a fun gift to keep around in your stash for teacher or co worker gifts.  When your BFF's birthday pops up throw in a coffee gift card and you are good to go :)

For this deal I am offering 10 shades of chevron and at this point all colors are still available.

Aqua Blue
Navy Blue

Have a happy day!

Secret Santa Gift

One of the best perks of being an Etsy seller is joining teams.  The one I am most active on is the Christian Artists Street Team.  Some of these amazing ladies I have met in person while many remain friends that I will only ever have contact with online.  They are some amazing friends and always an encouragement to me.

For Christmas we do a Secret Santa exchange and I wanted to share my awesome gifts.

My Secret Santa was my dear friend Felicia of Ever Sew Sweet.  I have purchased from her before and her work is lovely, she is a very talented seamstress.

Felicia sent me several gifts.  First of all, the chocolate was so yummy that it didn't even make it into the photo, haha.  I ate it all pretty quickly ;)

There is a purple knit infinity scarf, it is so soft and comfy and super cute.  She also made me two cute zippered bags.  There is also a cute little tissue holder for my purse.

In that little package is a bone turner.  I had mentioned to Felicia months ago how I wish I could find one since I turn fabric all the time and the corners are a challenge.  The fact that she remembered and took the time to find me one just made me melt.

Thank you so much Felicia for my thoughtful, beautiful and lovingly made gifts :)

I look forward to doing this again next year.
