This stuff is goooood.

Stay with me till the end for the Bomobob giveaway winner! :)

Speaking of Bob, I had to brag about my advertisers yet again, cause you know -- they RAWK.

My newest advertiser, Amanda at Imperfectly Beautiful, has the caaaaautest Etsy shop you ever did see. When I saw these on her blog, I had to have them. They were even packaged so sweetly when they arrived, I could just die:
Squeal! I did! I squealed! YES, they are Christmas decorations. YES, I am going there. It's only FOUR months away peeps. That's like, only a third of a year. Geez.

The blocks were much bigger than I thought they would be. I love all the details -- some of the paper even has sparkles (hard to see here):
Squeal! Sparkles!
I can't tell you how pleased I was when I opened this up. Amanda does a great job, you must go check her out here. She's working on an upcoming giveaway for you lovely folks too:And at Cara's giveaway post for The Sheet Boutique, I told you how I bought the EzzzySleep fleece sheets.

They came super fast and uh. my. gawd., they are they most amazing sheets we've ever had!:
I know the picture doesn't convey how comfy these are. They are so soft, I'm not even kidding. When I opened them up I was a little worried they would be too hot, but they are so comfortable, even though it is still fairly warm around here. I am SO thrilled with this purchase. Like sleeping in a fluffy cloud.

The winner of Bomobob's fantastic giveaway is (randomly picked) Erin from Home is Where the Heart is! Erin, e-mail me and I'll get you connected with Bob!

Come back tomorrow -- I have some fun little projects to share. :)


  1. I want some of those yummy soft sheets to sleep on! Too bad it is still 90 degrees here and probably will be until November. Bummer.

    Thanks for the oh so sweet shout out my friend! I am soooooo happy that you love the blocks. I'm squealing right along with you...squeeeaaal!!!

    And's never too early to think about the holidays. My 9 year old has been stressing about his Indiana Jones costume since February. Seriously!


  2. Congrats Erin!!!
    Those sheets look like heaven. My son has been thinking about his Halloween costume as well--he wants to be a Ghostbuster. :)

  3. Those blocks are so cute! I would squeal to if I had those. Also, thanks for the reminder that Christmas is only 4 months away!! So much to do!!

  4. I checked out Imperfectly Beautiful yesterday and have my eye on some of her stuff! Thanks for the review!

  5. I love those blocks! I want some! You are not far off from others thinking about the holidays already. I am planning a list in my head and I've bought a couple of gifts already.

  6. These look really cute. 100 days to Christmas is on Sept 16th, there is a website for it ;-)

  7. Good grief! Way to give a person a panic attack - Christmas is coming fast! In the words of the famous Jessie Spano from Saved By The Bell...."There's not enough TIME!!!"

    I appreciate when Etsy shops are highlighted. It's SO overwhelming to browse around because I never even know where to start. Thanks! =)

  8. Thanks for the reminder that Christmas is 4 months away LOL! Although I do have all of my ideas for gifts this year... I found your blog from Today's Creative Blog and I love your home!

    Erica :)

  9. What adorable blocks!

    I have the Sheet Boutique bookmarked for our next set of sheets. I have been dreaming of bamboo sheets for so long. Can't wait for it to become a reality!

  10. Yay for Amanda! She is such a creative crafty girl. I love to see her stuff. :) I also LOVE the glitter on that paper!!!

  11. Oh my, as if I needed another Etsy shop to be addicted to! She has SUPER cute stuff, I'll be placing an order ASAP! : )

  12. Those blocks are too cute. Yay, someoen else who doesn't think it's crazy to be thinking about Christmas this early. You Rawk yourself girl!

  13. I think its time for me to go back and look at your winter posts from 08...I love christmas!

  14. You made my heart JUMP (seeing as my name is Erin!) but I am not from "Home is Where the Heart is" *sigh* and then I remembered I didn't enter in the giveaway *durr* but it still gave me a start! I should go do the dishes while my adrenaline is up!

  15. I want those blocks! I like on of the post that says 100 days from September 16th, easy enough to remember since that is my birthday!!! I'm going to her website!
