Day 12: 30 Days of Thanks Giveaway!!

I thought I would start your Monday off with something a little sweet.


No, they are not perfectly frosted, but I still thought that they were fun.

I made them back in June to bring to celebrate my sons 2nd birthday.

Instead of putting each color of frosting in a separate bag, I put both colors (the chocolate and the blue, or the chocolate and the green) on separate sides of one bag. Then as I frosted they slowly blended together.

I thought the effect was rather fun, even though my piping skills are horrendous and you can see every error I made.


Today for the giveaway we have a set of 2 lovely hemp bracelets donated to us by Sarah at The Purple Hawk.

 The Purple Hawk is such an interesting shop full of hemp jewelry, drawings and more. Be sure to stop by and see what other wonderful items she has!

It took me days to decide if I should put these up separate or as a set, but I love how well they go together so I eventually decided that I couldn't bear to split them apart.

Therefore, the winner will receive both the bracelet in the left and middle pictures.
Use the Rafflecopter Widget below to enter to win :)

PLEASE NOTE: Entries are limited to residents of the US only. The Rafflecopter tool does not have a filter and therefore WILL allow you to enter even if you are outside the US, but to be fair on shipping costs to all of the sponsors, only those within the US will be eligble to claim the prizes.

Remember: some important notes and quick reminders about the giveaway (these reminders wil be posted each day of the giveaway!):

1) Each entry that you earn with be checked for accuracy. Please do not say you following a blog, made a purchase from a shop, like a page, etc. if you in fact did not. If you are caught cheating, you will be automatically disqualified from the ENTIRE giveaway, not just the one day.

2) Whether you win or not, please take a moment to say "thank you" to the sponsors. Each sponsor took their own time and resources to provide us with the opportunity to have this wonderful giveaway. No sponsors = no prizes = no Giveaway.

It only takes a moment to pop into their shop or FB page to say Thank You.

Please do.

3) You may enter on as many or as few days as you wish. Yes, that means you or someone else may win on more than one day, and that is absolutely A-O.K. Also, sponsors may enter only on days that their item is NOT being featured. (aka, don't enter for your own item). Might seem silly, but it's a good reminder, trust me ;)

4) Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize. If not claimed after 48 hours a new winner will be drawn for that days prize.

5) Have fun and Good Luck!!


  1. Trying to win these as a gift for my sister =)

  2. This is for me (though I may end up giving it to my sister!)

  3. I would keep one and give one to my sis

  4. I'm too late for the giveaway, I just had to say that those cupcakes ROCK! They wouldn't happen to be vegan would they? ;) The icing looks gorgeous and everyone knows that the icing is the very best part! Yum!

    1. They are not vegan, and as a matter of fact are just "from a box". I didn't have the time/supplies to make from scratch, so they are store bought, with store bought icing with coloring just added in. You could definitely make the same effect with any vegan recipe I'm sure :)
