These are a Few of My Favorite Things Giveaway

It’s my blogiversary today and you know what that means?! Time to party. Since you won’t all fit in my house to celebrate for real, let’s celebrate with a humongo door prize! I thought it would be so awesome if I could gather together all of my favorite brand and share with you my favorite craft and decor products that I use here all the time. And guess what, they all came through big time. 

Anyone interested in over $600 in prizes?

So now you’ve seen a glimpse of the prizes, let me tell you why each one made my favorites list!

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Cricut. I love my Cricut Mini and also love the people over there. Seriously awesome people. The CEO even hugged me at the end of an event I helped them plan?! So of course they had to be included at the top of my list of my favorite things. They, like me, want you to have a Cricut Mini ($130 value) too! It cuts cardstock like a charm, but I have also used it for magnet material, fabric, heat transfer and of course vinyl. Oh, and did you know their image downloads start at just 99 cents? Rock on Cricut!

I love easy and that is what Elmer’s and X-acto make many of my projects. I have used their products to bring countless ideas (3ft present, puppet playhouse, etc) to fruition. When they asked what my favorite things were to include in the prize package I listed like 10 things (no joke). Well, they ran with it and came up with a fabulous prize package worth $100 including:

Rod Works is one of those places where you walk in and want to buy everything in the display.

From inspirational home decor to original gift ideas they have a great assortment to make even the pickiest smile. Some of my favorites are pictures above and they want you to choose your favorites with a $53 gift card!

Martha Stewart Crafts is no question one of my favorite brands. If I listed all the projects I have made with her paint, punches, glitter and brushes it would take up this whole post. I recently did a really fun glitter nail post which inspired this prize. I am so excited to be able to give away the Punch All Over Pattern Heartbeat and a 24 pack of glitter!

Pick Your Plum is not only one of my favorites because of the fun crafty and decor swag they have, but because it is a new great deal every day! I love popping in to see what the deal of the day is from burlap baskets to scarves to twine. It’s always exciting to see what the new deal is, but even more exciting to have the chance to win a $50 box of swag!

Raise your hand if you love washi tape? I finally got in on the trend just before Christmas and it is awesome. Such a fabulous way to add color and pattern to just about anything. So, the favorites I’ve found come from Downtown Tape and they are giving away 10 rolls of tape and 25 tags for you to fancy up. Awesomesauce!

    Rod Works – okay tbh hard as ever to pick just one or two things. porcelain measuring cups in the running but then the chicken dip bowl/spreader with the chicken wire on the bowl, would just fit in my chicken, then the egg salt/pepper shakers. and don’t forget the ice cream bowls and layering bracket.

  11. says
