Celebrate Spring with A GIVEAWAY! {CLOSED}

Who is ready for spring?! I'm getting sick of the cold but definitely have enjoyed the super warm (high 40's - mid 50's) weather we've had these last few weeks! I even went out without a jacket and so many people I know have started donning shorts! So in light of our warmer weather and our dreams for blooming flowers, we've starting creating our Spring splash of inspiration! Our forecast is seeing signs of pinwheels, butterflies, and the flowers in the cutest ways! Come check out the store this week. We are getting and ordering new product in almost every day and I'm dying over all the cute things I'm seeing! We're kicking Old Man Winter to the curb!!

So let's celebrate Spring the best way I know how. With.... A Giveaway!! But mostly because I think free stuff will brighten anyone's day... just like warm flip flop weather does! So let's get down to business. What are you going to try to win today?! I'll tell you... Our adorable Happy Easter Egg banner!

The Finished Product!

We did finish our love books for our husbands just in time for Valentine's Day. I've just been a little slow in getting them posted! They were such a hit! Even though it serves no practical purpose for them in the future, they appreciate our creative efforts and our sappy love notes inside. :) I love how similar and different they are at the same time. Don't you love Amy's square black & white photo booth pictures?! We hope you like them!

A little Love Potion anyone?

These are probably my *most* favorite Valentine treat containers ever. Adorable right?? Maybe I'll try and concoct a little love potion for these sweet little candy tubes. I think my husband's recipe will include those new mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Have you seen the commercial for those?! They're so small and cute, I don't feel bad about eating as many as I plan to over the next few days! They're the size of a dime!

Better than a card!

Need a super cute idea for Valentine's Day? Here at Pebbles, our superstar employee Amy (who does a little of everything and is good at all of it) and I made these adorable little books for our husbands! I'll just be showcasing her's today since for one, mine is no where near as cute, and two, it's just not done. We'll give you a little snack of what is to come when we finish them.

The book, closed, is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Each page folded in half is half of an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. We cut the inside pages down just a bit so the book would close nicely and also added some fun little extras to make it more entertaining and interactive for our guys. We all know they get distracted easily! :) We used Bakers Twine to hand stitch the binding. We thought about just sewing it but there were too many pages for the sewing machine needle to stitch through. Hand stitching was super easy (even though I broke one of Amy's needles!)

We will be filling the pages with fun little love notes, maybe a few love coupons, and pictures! Amy is going to set up a little photobooth at her home this weekend and make her husband take fun prop pictures with her. Don't you kind of want to be her?? She comes up with the best ideas!
