Party on like rockstars. And a giveaway

Please excuse the photo heavy post.  I’m warning you – it’s a lot of photos.  The giveaway is at the bottom.  Feel free to scroll through the cuteness to get to it.

Today my little crazy man turns three.

A few hours before I went in to the hospital.  I did my hair.  And shaved my legs.  And um, other things.  Naivety is funny.
The day he was baptized.  I was thinking “what a wonderful day”.  Jack was thinking “I want your boobie”!

Angelina Jolie called – she wants her lips back bro.


Party hard – it’s your birthday!

A few months ago I ordered him this great print from etsy as his birthday present.

I contacted the seller and asked if she would be willing to give away a print to one of my readers.  Not only did she agree to give some thing away, she said she would give away TWO prints, and offer a discount of 15% of any order before shipping to readers of this blog.  Pretty sweet, right?

A little bit about Amanda:
Hi, I’m Amanda and I run Let’s All Make Believe from my Metro Atlanta home. I live with my husband and our two busy little boys (4 and 1) who are a constant inspiration for my artwork. In school, I did not have the chance to study art, but a dream of mine is to learn watercolor or graphic design in that sort of environment.

I started Make Believe as a creative outlet when I was somewhat new to being a stay at home mom. I would say my creative process is ideal for a mother of young children; because my drawings are digital, it is easy to correct mistakes, and I can click “save” at any point and return later without needing to clean up any paints or chemicals. While it’s not usually obvious in my nursery art designs, I am heavily inspired by children’s book illustrations from the 1950’s-60s. It is very rewarding to know that my nursery prints have found their way to various places in the world. From what I have seen, people have taken nursery decorating to a great new level, and it is fun for me to offer an affordable product that will be part of a child’s early life.

If I’m not working on new sketches, I love spending time with my boys, shopping, drinking insane amounts of coffee, and cooking. When I get the spare moment, I like to update my blog , where you can read more about me and my family, my artwork, and things which I adore.

Interested in entering the giveaway?  Just leave a comment and make sure I have a way to contact you if you’re the winner!  The drawing is open to US residents only, and will close at 12 pm on Saturday the 7th.  I was going to end it at 8 pm on Friday, but my ass will be at the Hunger Games then!  Good luck entering, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

If you’d like to purchase something from Amanda’s store, the discount code is BEINGFRUGAL.  And tell her Sarah sent you!
