How awesome are these? Aren't these milk and cookie cookies just the most perfect thing to leave for Santa this year? I don't understand how she does it but it's not for me to worry about. I'll just enjoy.
Sugar Tulip bakes lots of other sweets but for this time of year I think it is appropriate to feature Christmas cookies. This Canadian baker sent me a great big box of these and I'd like to share some with you. Like this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered. But, since I don't have enough for everyone you better get your order in soon so Santa isn't disappointed when he hits your house. Nothing but the best for the big guy, right?!
A Little Bit of Joy
A Little Bit of Joy, as the shop is aptly named, makes these precious little dolls and they are such a welcome relief from all that is barbie and plastic and wrong with the doll world. These are the kind of dolls your little one would keep forever.
Joy, the seamstress and shop owner, makes things other than dolls like this and this, and they are equally lovely, but I fell for the sweet faces and the darling dresses of her dolls.
I think Santa would be wise to have a little doll like this peeking out of the stocking of every little child that would adore it.
If you'd like to win a doll like these, please like this post on Facebook or comment below. I'm sure you won't be hard pressed to find someone to give it to this Christmas.
The Lovely Wall
I did it! I found the perfect wall decals. They are completely removable and repositional and I adore the designs. The Lovely Wall is the shop behind the decals that will soon cover my house and my classroom. Do you know how many times I've ripped paint from the walls using other decals?
Megan, the owner, designs, prints and ships every single decal all by herself! I am afraid I will be keeping her busy because I need this and this and these by Christmas. Do you have a favourite?
If you'd like a chance to win a world map decal like the U.S. map featured please visit the shop and tell us which decal you'd most enjoy. I'd keep praising this shop, because I really and truly love it, but I need to get my order in so it will arrive before Christmas! This contest closes in twenty-four hours. Good Luck!
Clothes 4 Girls
It's time to start preparing for your yearly Christmas photo shoot. I know, I know. The kids refuse to look at the camera and your husband is annoyed that you made him coordinate his clothes, and the only one cooperating is the family dog. It's the same thing every year.
It's never easy, but at least your family can look good during the attempt. Clothes 4 Girls is a sweet little shop that can get your dolls all decked out in Christmas dresses perfect for your Christmas shot. There is no guarantee these dresses will make them stand still and smile for the camera but if they look great you can check one thing off of your very long list.

Oh, and by the way, can you even cope with that swirly lollipop dress? Divine!
I love her, I love her, I love her! Pam at Cool Jewelry Design is the most entertaining shop owner I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is hilarious and, more important than that. she is the real deal. I know you can tell her work is stunning by browsing her shop but that doesn't tell you much about the kind of person she is. So, let me tell you, that during the brief weeks we've been corresponding I have decided Miss Pam, the artist behind these divine creations is pretty friggin' awesome. You'll like her, too. Who wouldn't like someone who uses only the finest of materials to makes this gorgeous jewelry. I think cheap and substandard materials and procedures would be absolutely offensive to her and for that I love her even more. Yes, the prices are little higher because of the high quality of the jewelry but she offers a lay away plan to help with all that or you can visit her here for a gorgeous handmade jewelry at a lower price point.
I really cannot believe, I am about to say this. Ok, here goes. I am going to part with my Black Gold Quartz Modern Beaded Statement Bracelet. Ugh, that hurt. Look at the gorgeous thing. All genuine and beautiful! I guess I feel like there is a tired mom out there that needs this more than I do. So, to be entered please tag the name of the person you would like to have win this precious piece and I will enter that person and you into the contest. This contest will close in twenty four hours. Good Luck.
Mad Jo Apparel
This one is too easy. Of course you're going to love Mad Jo Apparel. Take a look. She's witty, snarky and a little badass so she is perfect for you. Sometimes we need our apparel to tell the story of our day. This saves us both the time and energy it takes to tell people what to expect from us.
Having a rough day? Throw this on to keep people at a distance. Feeling cranky with your co-workers? How about this one? Frankly, I am telling you that this shop owner is one of us, in more ways than one. You can trust her, and I don't say that lightly.
Tell me what your shirt would say for a chance to win this 'hot mess' hoodie. And to answer your question before you ask. Yes, you can wear it every single day. This contest closes in twenty four hours. Good Luck! And, if you don't win (we can't all win) try this coupon code for a 5% discount TEAMKATE14.
Little Bird Studio 22
I know you'll go a little bananas for this jewelry. Little Bird Studio 22 is full of delicate and beautiful pieces perfect for anyone. Do you see that puzzle piece? I know some of you will be needing that. I'm partial to the heart myself. Do you have a favorite piece?
The artist, Caroline, left big business to pursue opening her own jewelry shop, which makes her jewelry just a little bit cooler than the rest. The talented silversmith is British, too, so that ensures this jewelry is just a tad fancier than all the rest, as well.
I'm fiercely jealous of how she spends her days but at least we can reap the rewards of her hard work.
One of you lucky dogs will win the love necklace featured here. Simply explore the shop and tell me what piece speaks to you. This contest closes in twenty four hours. Good Luck!
I can tell you right now that this is all my Grace wants for Christmas. She wants to set up her "American Girl" dolls (you know those American Girl Dolls they sell at Target?) with furniture of their very own. She draws it and designs it and dreams about it. Well guess what, Custom Woodworkx makes it! This isn't your big box store plastic crap, okay?! Let's get that straight. That fireplace actually glows. This is high end, handmade woodworking. Your little one deserves high quality toys and you deserve to get your money's worth this Christmas.
I'll give you a chance to win that fireplace if you spend a little time admiring the woodwork in this shop. What does your little one dream of having? Come back and 'like' this post on Facebook to be entered. This contest closes in twenty four hours. Good Luck!
If you must be bundled up this winter, and trust me, you must, at least wear some super chic knits by SOVAknits. The little touch of bright with the classic grey kills me. I had to have it! I want the whole collection.
Christina, the master knitter, sent two of these hot pink hats so I could give one away to one of you. Even the packaging is sweet so if you win and you'd like to treat someone to an excellent Christmas gift, that is up to you. I would personally be selfish and keep it for myself.
In order to be entered to win please check out her shop and come back and 'like' this post to tell me you were browsing. This contest will close in twenty four hours. Good luck!
Under Angel Wings
This might surprise you a little bit. I absolutely adore Nativity scenes. They are, by far, my favorite Christmas decoration. I won't pretend I practice anything other than shopping for the great materialistic machine that is Christmas, but I do love to stare at these beautiful little representations of my favorite Christmas story. Under Angel Wings creates more than these sweet nativity scenes as you can see in their shop. I'm also partial to some of the other items I've featured below. As if I won't own that create your own Nativity Scene kit! Maybe I could post how "well" I do for you all to see.
What's your favorite creation in this sweet shop? Let me know for a chance to take away my precious nativity scene. It's going to hurt something awful but I will part with it someone who is kind enough to enter this contest. Good Luck!
A mom like you.
