giveaway . handmade ragdoll

6 Jan

lila’s christmas list this year included two items: 1) a book and 2) a doll, preferably one with glasses who has clothes that she can take on and off.

the book was easy — i already had a stash tucked away for her — but the doll with glasses was a bit trickier. when i finally came across one i knew she would love (complete with glasses, fringed booties, reversible poncho, tiny skirt and secret tattoo), less than two weeks before the holiday, i knew i was cutting it close; but the lovely april from riley construction did everything she possibly could to ensure my little lady could have her own bespectacled little friend under our tree.

that all said, i can’t think of a better giveaway to start off the new year, than one featuring one of lila’s favourite christmas gifts from the holidays — an awesome handmade doll from riley construction. (and based on the fact that i’ve already received a couple of emails and comments requesting more info on said doll after yesterday’s post, i think there may be a few of you who agree!)

as always, there are a few ways to enter, and you’ll have to leave a separate comment for each entry (you will have left three comments once you’ve entered all three ways).
1. comment below telling me which doll you would choose should you win (i’m partial to the hipster girl, geek boy and beach beauty myself.)
2. pin your favourite riley construction doll listing on pinterest
3. add one of the dolls to your etsy favorites

contest closes friday, january 10.

best of luck!!


giveaway . let us always be adventurers

26 Aug

anyone who’s been following this little blog for a while probably knows we’re pretty big fans of adventuring around here, so when i came across this screen printed map on etsy a while back, i knew our home had to have one.

now, thanks to colleen from walsh-walsh & son, one of you can have the map of your choice (and there are lots of choices!) for your home as well.

as always, there are a few ways to enter, and you’ll have to leave a separate comment for each entry (three comments if you enter all three ways).
1. leave a comment below with somewhere you love to head when you’re in the mood for adventure, or somewhere you’ve yet to travel to, but would like to see
2. pin the map listing on pinterest
3. add the map to your etsy favorites

contest closes friday, august 30

good luck, happy adventuring, and thanks again to walsh-walsh & son for this giveaway!

giveaway . custom watercolour portrait

8 Apr

the second i found uh oh my deer on etsy (via some random instagram creeping), i knew two things: 1) i needed some of kate’s art in my life, and 2) i needed to share it with you! luckily enough, kate was on board with both of these ideas :)

as you may have seen this weekend, i love our custom family portrait so much i couldn’t wait the extra two days to share it with you all and had to share it on saturday. and now it’s your turn to enter to win one of your own of the people you love.

three ways to enter (each comment counts as one entry):
1. leave a comment below with who you’d include in your portrait and why they’re awesome.
2. ‘favourite’ the uh oh my deer shop on etsy, and comment to let me know.
3. and lastly, because i likely would never have stumbled upon kate’s work without instagram, follow me on instagram, and leave one last comment (share your username if you’d like!) for one more entry.

contest closes friday, april 12th.

good luck, and thanks to kate from uh oh my deer for this awesome giveaway! (take a minute to check out the other amazing goodies in her shop — we are proud owners of some of the art prints and the colouring book, and the paper dolls are next on my list!)

……

congratulations sarah!


giveaway . stuck on you

18 Mar

imagine you’re a four year old that loves colouring… now imagine that you get a package in the mail one day with an activity book, scribbler, pencil crayons and pencils with your name printed all over everything. mind blown, am i right?! lila was just a little bit thrilled to receive this custom activity pack from the lovely folks at stuck on you and spent a good portion the weekend getting her doodle on.

not only are these goodies all personalized, but the illustrations are actually really cute too. we had a tough time choosing between the woodlands and arrr zap themes, but the little fox won lila over in the end. we also received some mini name labels that should be great for marking all of lila’s supplies when she starts kindergarten in the fall.

now onto the best part, stuck on you has offered up some twenty dollar gift vouchers so four of you can also get your hands on some cute personalized goodies (seriously, this company has something for everyone: labels, placemats, aprons, puzzles… the list goes on).

to enter, head over and like the stuck on you facebook page (don’t forget to grab the free shipping coupon while you’re there), and then come back here and leave a comment letting me know what you’d choose from the site if you win.

contest closes friday, march 22.

best of luck, and thanks to stuck on you for the awesome goodies!


giveaway . reusable snack packs

10 Dec

after eating pretty much anything and everything put on his plate for the last five months or so, cole has decided that yogurt is the only food group worth touching for the past couple of weeks. we are, of course, encouraging him to get back to eating all of the foods he previously enjoyed, but on those occasions that only yogurt will do, these reusable snack containers from squishy snak pak have been incredibly convenient for yogurt on the go.

the lovely michelle fromĀ squishy snak pak is giving away a set of two reusable snack containers (perfect for yogurt, applesauce and any other sort of puree) to one of you :) these would be an awesome stocking stuffer for the little one, or new parent, on your holiday gift list!

to enter:
head over and like the squishy snak pak facebook page and leave a comment here letting me know you’ve done so;
and then, for a second entry, leave another comment below with a favourite snack, meal or feeding trick for the toddler set — i’ll take all the help i can get :)

contest closes friday december 14.

best of luck (and yay for awesome canadian businesses)!
