Spreading Christmas Cheer – Giveaway

I mentioned last week, I would be having a give away this week. I am partnering up with the folks at What to Expect for a gigantic give away. If you have had children in the past, or plan to in the future, listen up! When I was pregnant with my teenager – I read What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I read and re-read every day. It was my go to book. A couple years ago when I found out I was expecting again, I went straight to Target and picked up a new copy. I was surprised to see that there were many new books in the series, including What to Expect Before You’re expecting, and What to expect the first year. These books are so easy to read, and so informative. whattoexpect-1.com-122

So….Here’s the details. You will get TWO packages. One from me – One from What to Expect. These packages will include ALL THREE books mentioned above from the What to Expect series, and also, from LylahG – a festive newborn size holly berry hat. Holly_2

I will select a random commenter to receive these wonderful gifts next THURSDAY, December 13. Good luck!

This and That

Whoa.  I think this is the longest gap between blog posts.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is over and we are officially in the Christmas holiday.  This past weekend I was at Indie Craft Experience, and it was such a great show!  I sold out of owl and teddy bear hats the first day, so Mom and I came home and made 8 more hats.  I can’t even believe we had enough energy to do that!  Here is my booth – before the masses hit.

If you missed the show, there is plenty of inventory at the Beehive.

In other news, we had a great Thanksgiving, thanks to fresh market.  I have to say, I usually enjoy planning the menu and going to the store, then spending all day in the kitchen cooking up and finally sitting down to enjoy the meal.  This year, the mere thought of that process exhausted me, so I took my Fresh Market catalog, and ordered up a meal.  It was quite delish, and took nothing but a little reheating and just cooking the bird.  I would definitely do it again.

After dinner we got out the gingerbread house to assemble.  Lylah was excited.  It’s weird to me how she even had any concept of what it was, but I had the box sitting out on the island, and ended up having to hide it from her because every time she saw it, there was a tantrum. She wanted the house.

Chris and Tyler ended up figuring out how to get the thing to stand up. I have to say, every time I’ve made a gingerbread house, the thing always collapses.  Lylah finally got some candy, and I spent the rest of the night regretting letting her have the peppermint stick.

Hope everyone had a peaceful Thanksgiving.  I will be back soon- I promise!

Indie Craft Experience

Just a quick post to say what a great day yesterday was! My mom is here and we worked all night and this morning to replace inventory. If you are in Atlanta, stop by ambient plus studio for the last day of ice, the vendors are phenomenal! Get a start on holiday shopping!

Here’s the LylahG booth as seen through my iPhone. More photos to come soon!
