Hello Monday & Happy Bundle Giveaway

Hello Monday … Happy Tax Day!

What? No happy in your tax day? Well hold on one minute because I’ve got all things happy to update you on and a giveaway to cheer you up this Monday morning.

First up, let’s say hello to a shop update. I know things have been QUIET on the shop front following Christmas. It’s not for lack of want, I promise.

Two things to take note of … First, I am *hopefully* going to do a shop ‘refresh’ on Monday April 29th. I plan to have a limited number of: coffee coats / mug rugs / list takers / table runners. All items will be ready to ship making them the perfect option for Mother’s Day and/or End-of-the-Year Teacher gifts. I will try to share some sneaks in the next two weeks. Second, I’m planning to do an Insta-sale on Monday April 22nd to clear out some of the odd-n-ends in my shop at a GREAT discount. Follow me on Instagram for all the details.

Now, let’s talk about a FABULOUS shop re-opening you DO NOT WANT TO MISS. Raising Up Rubies has re-stocked her shop with all sorts of great new items and is ready to open at 10AM EST. Seriously, I hope you didn’t give all your money to the tax man … this stuff is cute. I even helped inspire one of the new banners … take a guess and then come back tomorrow to see my post showing off my Sugar ‘n Spice cutie.

If you can stand it, let’s get to the really good part of this post, and say hello to this month’s Happy Bundle giveaway!!

I completely missed March, but I think April is making up for it.I know April is supposed to bring showers to help May flowers, but I’d rather think about the rainbows that those spring showers bring. That is exactly what inspired this month’s bundle … a rainbow of color.

{This bundle is put together by me with my own funds (with the exception of any sponsored items listed) and will be shipped by me to one very happy you!} 
Let’s take a closer look at what you could win::

Mug Rug by Knitty Bitties / Set of {12} Thank You notes / Julep polish in Claire & Kaylen

In addition, this month’s Happy Bundle features two lovely sponsors::
