August Giveaway! - Birthday Edition

For this months giveaway I'm sharing a little birthday love by gifting you one of my favorite things.

New Instax Mini

An Instax Mini Camera! Remember this guy? It pretty much hasn't left my side since I bought it. When I got my new camera bag (*cough - purse*) I built it it's own custom sized pouch inside. I won't lie, the film is crazy expensive, but I'm very careful with lining up my shots and tend to only take one or two at a time. Tiny polaroids are too fun to pass up!

Here are some of the shot's I've taken with mine:

The giveaway includes one Instax Mini camera, new & in the box, and one packet of Instax Mini film - cause there's nothing more sad than opening up your dream robot and realizing there are no batteries in the house. Are you ready to enter?!? Here are the rules:

To enter just sign your name in a comment and tell me what your favorite birthday cake flavor is. If you avoid cake like the plague and only celebrate special occasions with sour kraut you can tell me that too. I'll probably just look at you weird. Right now mine is coconut, although that peach cake I made a few weeks ago is a close second!

For a bonus entry tweet a link to my giveaway or post a link on your blog. (Make sure you post an additional comment here letting me know so you get your bonus entry!)

This giveaway is Closed! Thanks to all who entered, Congrats to Marcie!

May Winner

Please send your mailing address to: kali.patton@gmail.com.

One of my cousins got married over the weekend so we were swept up in a whirlwind of parties, dinners, sight seeing, dancing and reminiscing. So much fun! The best part? We gained a crafter! I'll post more on this later, right now I'm catching up on laundry, lunches and resting. Hope you had an awesome weekend!

May Giveaway!

In honor of my recent craft shows and my upcoming shop update, this month's giveaway is going to be a doozie. The lucky winner will be snuggling up with a Spike plush!

Spike

Rear View

Who couldn't love that little face? Spike is a beastie that roams coffee and soda counters in fast food restaurants. Without eyes, Spike is completely blind. He is able to navigate by walking backwards swishing his long tail tail back and forth like a walking stick. While this is a great way to navigate obstacles on the ground, his horn causes some problems above, frequently spilling soda, and knocking lids and straws around. If you've been to a fast food restaurant with a messy soda or coffee counter, I would not be surprised to find a Spike lurking near by.

Are you just dying to take him home?

Here are the rules:

To enter just sign your name in a comment and tell me what your favorite soda or coffee drink is. My current is an iced coconut mocha. Yum!

For a bonus entry tweet a link to my giveaway or post a link on your blog. (Make sure you post an additional comment here letting me know so you get your bonus entry!)

The winner will be randomly selected Sunday night (June 5th) at 6pm. Good Luck & remember to check back to see if you've won!

Be ready for some seriously picture heavy posts this week revealing some new plush, snapshots of my vendor booth, a shop update and my favorite quilts from this years show. It was so inspirational! I can't wait to share so here's a sneak peek:

I had a great weekend and managed to take a ton of pictures so be expecting to see some in the near future! Here's one from Saturday.

Fozzie's Falafel

After a long morning of wandering through estate sales I met up with Jeff for lunch and a few errands. We've been making an effort to stop at restaurants that we've never been to before so we stopped at at sandwich shop just down the street from the bike store we were at. It's called Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium. It's super tiny. Not much larger than a drive thorough coffee hut, but the food was incredible! I ordered the Gracie - a falafel pita with artichoke spread. It was so delicious and the weather was finally nice enough to eat outside. I'm sure we'll be stopping there again!

How was your weekend? Does it feel like Spring yet where you are?

Congrats Jen! I've been making and collecting treats all week and can't wait to share!

I'll be posting photos of the contents of my Valentine once it is delivered so everyone can see what I included.

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week! I've been very busy with work and then traveled this weekend to watch our travel team play a Roller Derby bout in Indianapolis. We fell short of the win but it was an amazing game to watch. I couldn't be more proud of my ARRG girls!

I do have plenty of posts planned for the rest of the week including, but not limited to: a new collection of awesome, a new bento and some recent thrifting scores. I will also have an update on our entry for the AIDS awareness fashion show. It's so cute!

Don't miss out on the next post... follow me on twitter or Bloglovin'! (If you haven't heard of blog lovin' yet I would highly recommend checking it out! I've found it crazy useful. You just enter in all of the blogs that you read regularly and it lets you flip through them like a magazine from one location rather than visiting them all individually. It also only displays new postings that you haven't read yet. Awesome!)
