GIVEAWAY: children’s clothing from Sew Jewell

Today is a pretty special day all the way around. First, I’ve had the opportunity of late to work with a very talented photographer, Angie Arthur of Angie Arthur Photography and co-founder of I Heart Faces. We met at BlissDom this year and we just clicked. We immediately began to plan a pretty intense schedule for this summer and these pictures are just a peek at our very first collaborationAll the details, plus a brand new birthday collection, will be revealed early next week.

And the second thing that makes this day and this post extra special is that Sew Jewell (what she loves to do + her last name) is my mom’s brand new (as of this morning!) Etsy shop. She’s always made things for me for photo shoots and for my son’s real parties, remember those lab coats for Alex’s science birthday party, yep, that was her. Well now her talents are going to be available to you and I couldn’t be more excited for her!

This morning you’ll find most of the dresses she made for this shoot, but in the coming days you’ll find monogrammed children clothing, baby bibs, baby blankets and so much more! Plus, last night, Angie picked up a custom order for the I Heart Faces photography workshop in Texas this weekend. I can’t wait for you to see what Sew Jewell whipped up for them! {Photographers: If you need custom clothing for an upcoming shoot, convo her on Etsy!}


So today, Sew Jewell is giving away two of the dresses, (the other two sold that day!), that Angie and I used for our first collaborative shoot. Here on my blog you can enter to win this beautiful hot pink and orange Aubrey dress, size 6, that was worn by one of our adorable little models from our model search back in March. Don’t you just love those piggy tails! 

And you can enter to win the Victoria peasant dress, size 7, and headband, second little girl in aqua polka dots, at Angie Arthur Photography.


Visit Sew Jewell’s new shop to see more details about these dresses (and remember, many more are coming in the next few days), then return here and leave a comment letting me know which one you like best OR which one of Angie Arthur Photography’s beatutiful images you like best.

GIVEAWAY! $50 Hallmark spree


While at BlissDom this year (read my recap) I met some fabulous brands, one of which is letting me give a little something, something away! My new friends at Hallmark are offering one lucky reader a $50 giftcard that can be used for these fabulous personalized party plates and/or personalized greeting cards at Hallmark.com!

Have you seen the personalized plates? I hadn’t until I walked into BlissDom and saw Allie and Barbara’s faces on plates we were using for one of the snack sessions. FUN! And I love that not only can you add a photo, but you can add text, or just text (note the comedy in the black and white sample above. I can only wish I were still 29…).

The black and white would be perfect with my divine, bubbly or blossoms collections! And I just LOVE the floating dots in the next row. Those would be fun with my deep blue sea collection and the chocolate cake plates below that are perfect with a number of my pink girly girl birthday collections. I could go on and on!

They also have a number of themed plate designs for birthdays, baby showers, teen parties and more!
