UPDATE and Hazel Martin Designs Giveaway: November 19-26

We are hard at work with our craft adventure.

Here's a sneak peek at all we're hoping to accomplish:

If we can pull it all off by Sunday it will nothing short of amazing, considering we're juggling four kiddos while trying to make magical craftiness happen.

Seriously, it looks like the craft fairy came to my house........

....and threw up all over my kitchen table.
Don't judge. It'll all be picked up before bedtime.

OK, so while we're breaking a sweat in the name of cuteness, how about a super cute giveaway????

Check out what I got in the mail recently:

Isn't this ADORABLE???????

I've been eyeing these FOR.EV.ER on Etsy. I just think they are so stinkin' cute!
And I love that I also happened to need a new key chain.
Perfect timing.

Anyway, it came from here:

Seriously, this artist is so talented. As someone who paints, let me just say that I am in awe of what an amazing, detailed job she does-- especially on something so tiny!

I got to choose the color, the polka dot color, and the hair styles and colors for each of my girls.

I love how she works to make your design match your kiddos as closely as possible.
Wouldn't this be a great gift for a grandmother?????

I love the boy version as well.

And I'm a sucker for anything cupcake:

She also offers some of the CUTEST Christmas ornaments I have ever seen.

LOVE this one for a teacher.

I would love to have one of these for every member of our family:

Cute stuff, right?
You love it, right?
At this very moment you're getting ready to stalk her Etsy shop, right?
Well, before you go, how's about entering to win one of these:

That's right. The artist is giving away a keyfob of your choice-- that means boy or girl, featuring the little
 love(s) in your life. Wouldn't this be perfect for Christmas? Or, you could always be like me and hoard the goodness for yourself. Either way, I'm thinking you should enter to win.
