A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS// A Giveaway!!! {CLOSED!!}

posted on: September 19, 2013



Today I have a HUGE giveaway for you guys!!

I often get asked about things in my apartment, or things we love most. Over here in this house we love a lot, but we really go hard for just a few things, things I would recomend to the moon and back! And I thought, why not offer some of these things to my readers!! I love you guys and I really hope you also love these things. There will be 9 winners!

Before I go any further, here is what you could be winning:


1. A $30 giftcard to Social Print Studio! Have you heard of them? They are an awesomely run company, that prints your instagram pictures. Really, it feels like you're dealing with really good old friends when talking to them. They ship ridiculously fast, and I am in love with every print we've gotten from them. Always the best quality. Do you remember our EAT project? And we recently did a clothing line replica project in our hallway (pictured above). They also just launched Blueprints, and Blueprints will actually print your Facebook photos!

2. A $100 giftcard to Cute Attack! So guys, Cute Attack is the cutest kids store around. They're a local shop in Brooklyn, but also sell things online. Do you love River's sunnies in that photo above? They're from Cute Attack, and they actually flip up too. It's her/our favorite! I love that Liza is a fun, young, funky, small business owner. Supporting shops like her's is what get my tires rolling you know?!

3. A "No Sleep till Brooklyn" tee! So you guys know that we are launching our clothing line! The feedback has been amazing, and the demand is high. We hope we get enough donors to fund the project. Our dream is starting to form, I feel it in my bones. To celebrate, and just because I do love our line, I am giving one lucky reader a piece of the line!

4. There are 3 chances to win a set of circle decals of any color of your choice from Decal Lab! 3 winners!!! We are absolutely head over heels over these golden yellow decals in River's room. They brighten up her room instantly, not to mention, they don't mess up her paint if we move one around. Colin and his brother who run Decal Lab also just launched another shop, you can see it here.

5. One handmade hand painted succulent notebook from Rose Marie Kitty Lou! Ever since Emily gave me my notebooks they've been in my purse ever since! I've used them for writing down my groceries, jotting down blog ideas, and in a Welkin meeting. The notebook is sweet, and special, without being overbearing in size or color. Just what you need. Emily hand paints every single book herself with so much love and care.

6. One double crochet circle scarf from Up a Tree, Cup a Tea co!! You guys, that scarf! We are in love! Have you had the chance to meet Johanna? She was one of the very first sponsors on this blog, and woah, is she a sweetheart! She's a 5th grade teacher, and a wonderful maker on the side! I can already see the scarf in regular rotation a few times a week, and I am kinds of excited about it! She also made these River clips, and they are freaking adorable!

Here's how you could win, ready? There are many ways!

  1. WELKIN Facebook page as been liked! (and I'm going to make a donation soon I swear, but damn being a mom and un-employed is hard!) love the no-sleep 'till brooklyn shirt! I'll buy one if I don't win this!

    We went to Cute Attack on our last trip to Brooklyn (we're in Montreal) and fell in love with this whimsical and so hip store! On the shop I'd get the munster polka pants, what a great cool pair of pants! wish they were my size! I love the unisex aspect of it.
    At Decal Lab I'd get the keep calm and carry on quote, I know it's cheesy but damn I like it!
    The baby scarf at Up a tree looks so comfy! With our harsh weather coming I'd love to get one for Clémentine!

    Yay! Wish me luck!

    Oh and good luck to you and Belle on your awesome project!

  2. Liked welkin and social print studio on fb. The part of the tribe pants are awesome on cute attack. I admired the decal lab and up a tree cup of tea shops as well. Id like the decals because my daughters room could use some more color and the scarf because we live in utah and it gets quite cold. Thanks :-)

  15. I favorited DecalLab's etsy shop. (I couldn't figure out how to "admire" it.) I can't decide if the cute clouds, the geometric pattern or the large triangles are my favorite. They would look awesome in my son's black and white toddler room. my etsy account email is heavymetal_rocks_03@yahoo.com and the name is Liz O'Farrill

  26. I liked both facebook pages and must have the star pj set in gray and tooth fairy pillow from Cute Attack. I would love some gold circle decals from DecalLab and a custom portrait of my sweetpea from Rose Marie Kitty Lou for her bedroom. I dig the chambray navy and white polka dot bow from Up A Tree, Cup of Tee. Fantastic giveaway. Please pick me.
