1. $24 to spend at Lulubug Jewelry

Our first prize is a $24 gift card to spend in Lulubug Jewelry’s Etsy store. I was lucky enough to happen upon this store filled with beautiful metal jewelry. Lulubug makes fine silver jewelry using precious metal clay, and all the designs are her own artwork. She has a whole collection of birds, flowers, trees, and many of her designs are inspired by things she sees during her bike-rides to work.

I have the necklace on the right in square, and I am amazed by the intricate details on such a tiny piece of jewelry. It is a almost more art than jewelry!

Another series of her designs are inlaid with tinted concrete. I particularly love the oak tree and her series of concrete flowers. They are so beautiful, delicate, colorful, and original. Her jewelry is classy and the tiny details on each piece are incredible.

Lulubug’s Etsy store is another place to send your husband for Christmas this year! Thanks, Lulubug!

2. A Set of Noggins Beanies

This giveaway is for a Mom & Me set of Noggins beanies – the winner will get two matching beanies, one adult size and one baby/child size. You can match!

She can make your hats in any color and style – she has basic, earflap, visor, girly flower, organic cotton, and ski bunny beanies. They’re all handmade by her, so they are high quality, soft, and warm.

Thanks, Noggins Beanies!
