OUR FIRST GIVEAWAY!!



I am so excited to tell you that we have our first sponsor- Gaddy Nipper Crayons!  Nichole makes the most precious crayons from hand poured molds.  They make great stocking stuffers, gift tie-ons, and party favors.

She sent us a sampling of some and we love them!  We received some cars, numbers and a holiday mix.  They are the perfect size for S's little grasp and don't break as easily as regular crayons.
S had fun "driving" his cars along some roads I drew.  Then he had fun scribbling all over them!  Older kids would enjoy drawing in houses, signs, trees, etc. 



Now for the great news-  as our first sponsor, Nichole wants to send one of my readers a free set of 9 Silly Swirls Holiday Crayons (photo at top)! 

To enter to win, leave a comment letting me know your favorite blog post to date.  For an extra chance to win, you can leave a second comment if you become a "follower" of this blog on the right sidebar.  Make sure to include your email in each comment or have it enabled in Blogger.  I will choose a winner by generating a random number on random.org.  After I email the winner, they will have three days to reply with their address before I choose a different winner.  The giveaway ends November 13th and is only open to US residents, so comment soon!

If you don't win, you can still get some for yourself or gifts at Nichole's Etsy store!

  2. I am pretty much a fan of all of your posts, but I think that my little one and I especially like the "disk insert" idea. I usually try and wait to bring it out while I'm fixing his dinner, and it almost always buys me a few minutes of uninterrupted time!
