A Little Bit of This & That

I'm sitting here with lots of things on my mind, so here I am with another one of my random posts. :)

You are gonna just die when you see what came in the mail today. Several months ago, I won third place in a Halloween contest and was given a $40 shopping credit from one of my absolute favorite Etsy stores: Cranberries & Capers. All along I didn't want to win first or second place-- I wanted third so I could shop at Cindy's store. :) And, as luck would have it, I won third place! So, finally after weeks and weeks of trying to make up my mind {thanks for being so patient, Cindy!}, I decided on three pacifier clips:

...and two sets of felt snap clips:

I am beyond impressed with her work. She's amazing! She even did a custom order for me and made me the pug paci clip. If you haven't visited her adorable Etsy shop, you must head on over and look around for a bit. Thanks again Cindy for everything!! I couldn't be happier!

So, guess what? The results of the Valentine Photo Challenge are in and Noah's picture got 2nd place!! Thank you a million times for taking the time to vote for us. It was a lot of fun!

And speaking of photo challenges, I entered another one a couple of days ago. :) Have you ever heard of Momtog? If you are interested in photography, then you would love and really benefit from this blog, so definitely check it out. Anyway, Momtog is about to relaunch a new website, so they are in the process of looking for ten pictures {from Momtog readers} to feature on their new header! I thought, what the heck, why not try? Right? So, I submitted this picture of Noah. Today I almost fell out of my chair when I saw Noah's picture among the 24 chosen out of 200 entries! So excited!! The 10 pictures with the most votes will be featured on Momtog's new header. So... would you take a second to vote for Noah's picture? I really hate to ask again {Josh said it's annoying-- and maybe it is}, but I really need all the votes I can get. Anyway, I promise I won't ask any more favors for a long, long time. Okay? Click here to vote for Noah. He is image # 14! Thank you for your support! I'll keep you updated!

Did you see the Valentine do-it-yourself I posted today? Click here if you missed it. It's so cute! And cheap!

I have some fabulous giveaways {three to be exact!} coming up soon! Fun, fun!

Oh, and I got an email today asking about the font I used in the picture above, and it's called BUDMO. You can find it here. :)

Okay, think that's about it.
Have a lovely Wednesday and try and stay warm!
