Happy Holiday Giveaway 2012 with fawn & forest: Superhero Dress Up Set by Little Hero

This giveaway is ridiculously appropriate for this week and it was completely unintentional.  My little one’s 4th birthday is coming up next weekend and our theme this year is superheroes!

As part of our Happy Holiday Giveaway series with fawn & forest, we’re offering a chance to win a cape, cuff and mask set by Little Hero.  My birthday boy would LOVE this prize as he is constantly creating different superhero identities for himself.  There’s one, Red Burnt, who wears red goggles and a plastic ax in the back of his shirt.  He’s a racer whose archenemy is named Stunt Man.  I’d love to see what kind of story he’d create for one of these Little Hero get ups.

The retail price of this incredible gift package is $67 but the play value is priceless.

This sweepstakes is open to US residents over the age of 18.  It starts right now and ends November 30th, 2012 at 12:01 am EST.  There are several ways to enter via Rafflecopter below.

Giveaway Results: Little House by Annette Tatum Moses Basket

I was glad to have the opportunity to introduce you to Little House by Annette Tatum’s new Tailored collection of bedding for children and babies.  It’s a fresh new collection of fabrics that are modern but timeless.

The randomly generated winner of the Little House by Annette Tatum Moses Basket is Felicia R!  She chose the Wave Orange Basket.

Congratulations Felicia!  I will email you shortly.

Thanks to Annette Tatum for such a lovely giveaway.  Be sure to browse their products if you’re searching for the perfect crib bedding for your modern nursery.

Annette Tatum’s New Tailored Bedding Collection and Giveaway of a Moses Basket

We’ve talked about Annette Tatum before, and now I’d like to introduce you to their new Tailored collection of baby and child bedding from Little House by Annette Tatum.

While it seems that the pink and blue colors are no-brainers, the patterns are modern and super sophisticated.  If you’re doing pink or blue, you can do it right with these new designs.  Looking closely, you can see that there are many different shades and variations to the fabrics.

With the Rose Sea pattern, you even find a feminine mix of pink AND blue.

Take a look at their catalog to see the entire Tailored collection of nursery bedding and child’s bedding.  I love that all the crib bedding patterns are available in a bumper-less version with Annette Tatum’s Perfect Fit Crib Sheet.

To celebrate the launch of their Tailored collection, Little House by Annette Tatum is offering one of our lucky readers their choice of a Moses Basket featuring fabrics from the Tailored line.  A Moses basket is a simple and beautiful alternative to a bassinet, made even more beautiful with this collection of fabrics.  The eight choices are pictured below, but visit the Little House page to find the name of your favorite pattern.  The prize is valued at $160 and the sweepstakes is open to US residents over the age of 18.  It starts right now and ends November 5th, 2012 at 12:01 am EST.  There are several ways to enter via Rafflecopter below.

Giveaway: Handmade Bag of Your Choice from tanneicasey

I discovered Tannei Casey’s etsy shop about two years ago when I did a post about her modern baby quilts.  Since then I’ve been thrilled to welcome her as an advertiser on our sidebar and hope that you’ve all had a chance to check out the quilts as well as her handmade diaper bags and totes.  Tannei recently sent me one of her BIG totes and I’ve been using it almost daily this summer.  My Fredrika Big Tote is almost two feet wide across the top and 17″ high.  It is bright, colorful, beautiful and fits everything I need to take myself and my two boys on any of our summer outings.

For the beach or the pool:
3 towels,
3 bottles of water and snacks
sunscreen
a change of clothes for everyone

For the skating rink:
My ice skates
3 pairs of gloves
3 jackets

I love that it fits everything and looks cute in the back of my car as well as over my shoulder!  It is beautifully made with a sturdy bottom and a simple magnetic closure at the top.

In case you haven’t had a chance to check out the tanneicasey etsy shop, we’ve got a great reason to send you over there right now.  Tannei would like to give one of my readers a chance to win their choice of a bag (with a value of up to $57).

Here are a few more of my favorites:

1- Helen Citron BIG Tote
2- Blue Ribbon Diaper Bag
3- Flax Wildflowers Pleated Hobo
4- Kajsastina Big Tote

But you don’t have to take MY word for it.  Find one that you love!

For your chance to win:

Visit tanneicasey’s etsy shop, and then leave a comment telling us which bag you would pick.  You can leave the name of the bag and/or a link to your choice so we can all check it out.

Begin With the Best: Ultimate Baby Registry Sweepstakes from Babylist

I’m excited to begin working with our new advertiser, a baby registry, BabyList this month.  BabyList is your all-in-one baby registry site.  You can add items from any store on the web and save them all on one list.  There’s no need to limit your choices to just what is available at the national chain retailers!  Add your favorites from etsy, Ikea, a local boutique that you love or directly from the manufacturer.  BabyLists are easy to create and easy to share.  If you’ve figured out how to add a “Pin It” button to your toolbar, you’ll be able to add the easy “Add to Babylist” button as well.

To test BabyList out, I created a sample baby registry with 10 of my favorite registry items.  It was easy to add the items, change the pictures, add descriptions and sort the list how I wanted it to appear.  If you’re expecting, make sure you give BabyList a try when putting together your gift registry!

I had such a great time putting together my “Ultimate Baby Registry,” that BabyList and I will be giving away EVERYTHING on the list to one lucky winner!

If you have any friends or family who are expecting, you will want to send them our way because this is an incredible prize package!  You can see all the items on BabyList and I’m going to tell you a little something about all my picks right here as well.

1.  First we have the Tiny Love 3 in 1 Rocker Napper– $100

This stylish multi-functional rocker converts from a baby seat to a comfy napper without disturbing your baby.

2. Loop Diaper Caddy from Boon Inc.– $50

This is one diapering accessory that I really wish we had when my kids were babies.  The Loop stores all your diapering tools in an organized, stylish and easy-to-carry caddy.

3. Soapster Foaming Soap Dispenser from Skip Hop– $24

We love our Soapster and I think it’s a must-have for any child’s bath.  Parents can get foamy soap with just one hand and eventually, kids can get their own soap and wash independently.

4. Aden + Anais Muslin Collection 4 pack of swaddling wraps– $50

Aden + Anais swadding wraps are known far and wide to be the softest, most beautiful and best natural muslin swaddling wraps for your modern baby.  These are an absolute must-have on any baby registry.

5. Natural Collection: Bamboo/Cotton Gunapod wearable blanket– $40

Wearable blankets are another must-have in my book and I really love this bamboo/cotton one from Gunamuna.  The material is lightweight and SUPER soft.  The Gunapods are designed with the Wonderzip system that has 4 zippers all around the blanket so that you can change or dress baby easily.

6. Childproofing Starter Kit from Rhoost-$33

It’s never too soon to start baby proofing.  I’m impressed with the modern baby proofing products from Rhoost and had to add a starter set of cabinet locks, outlet covers and table corner guards to my Ultimate Baby Registry.

7. Flexi Bath from Prince Lionheart– $44 + $17 for the Infant Support

One of my favorite baby bathtubs is the Flexi Bath.  It stores flat but pops open into a nice sized tub with a convenient drain in the bottom.  With the addition of the new Flexibath Infant Support, this is the only baby bathtub you will need! This tub can be used for children up to 4 years old and will save water over using your regular bathtub.  Take your pick of either a blue, green, pink or white Flexi Bath.

8. WallCandy Arts Gift Certificate- $50

Get started decorating the nursery with a $50 gift certificate for WallCandy Arts.  Take your pick from their collections of wall decals, chalkboard and dry erase decals or removable wallpaper.

9. Sticky Bellies Removable Milestone Stickers– $14

Everyone loves those monthly baby photos and take it from me, if you’ve got a set of these handy stickers ready to go, you’ll be so much more likely to actually capture a set of these precious moments before they fly by… because believe me… they do!

I wish I had an official set of monthly photos for my boys’ baby books.  And speaking of baby books…

10. The last prize is a copy of This Is Your Book by Ryan Maconochi- $17

“This is Your Book” is the modern baby book you don’t have to be intimidated about filling in.  It is easy to complete and will become a fun keepsake for your child when they are grown.

I’m thrilled that we’ll be able to share all of these great items (with a total retail value of over $430) with a lucky follower!  The giveaway is open to US residents over the age of 18.  It starts right now and ends June 11th, 2012 at 12:01 am EST.  There are several ways to enter via Rafflecopter below.
