“With a toddler at home, it is difficult to find time and quiet for crafting. But when he sleeps, it’s nice to do what I like the most. The sewing machine sounds too much, but making jewelry is quiet and pleasant. I have made these necklaces for many years now and they are my favorites. I use nickel free pendant trays, glasses and Liberty Fabrics. When you put the glass dome of the fabric so it becomes almost like a little painting. I choose each pattern with care and no necklace is the same. Unique and special, just like you”

Sponsor giveaway from Bib

Today two of you have the chance to win a neat, handmade and good looking bib for your little one.

“Perfect for your drooling baby!
Fine Bandana 100% cotton
On the inside it´s lined with the softest
baby corduroy in a matching color
Fits for children 3 – 18 months
Measurements: 37.5 x 20 cm”

About Bib
After sewing dresses for many years, I want to do something that is simple and gives a quick result. I started sewing bibs for my baby, and we often travel to California, where I became fond of Mexican banadanas. You see them everywhere on kids or dogs. I like to sew in conventional cotton, it gets softer and finer over time. So now I’m doing fine Bandana bibs, using Liberty fabrics or other fine patterns that are suitable for children and are appreciated by parents.

And they looks great on small dogs!

***Please leave your comment in this post if you want to enter the giveaway. Two winners will be chosen by a random and announced Wednesday 8 May.  Thanks for playing and good luck!

UPDATE we have two winners of Bib‘s neat giveaway. Congrats Adam and Inger-Marie, you won the bibs! Thank you all of you who participated, and a big thank you to Bib!

Sponsor Giveaway from LilahVintage

Dear readers a lovely giveaway coming up from sponsor LilahVintage. Please leave a comment in this post to enter the giveaway. Good luck to you all. A winner will be chosen at random Monday, September 3.

“I grew up in California getting to pursue my first love working on feature films. I have been fortunate to work all over the world on such movies as “Speedracer,” “Contraband,” and “Troy.

The second love came out of sad circumstances. My grandmother passed away leaving me her collection of jewelry. She was a spit fire and lived a long fantastic life where you dressed up to get on an airplane. Much of the jewelry was broken so I took classes on jewelry making and chain work learning how to take apart the old and make it modern. Ever since I have been making elegant everyday jewelry using a combination of vintage and new – I love it. I use quality materials of 22k mid century beads with 14k gold or sterling silver chains and findings to make sure your jewelry lasts.

I still work on movies (I, Alex Cross comes out later this year and Thunderstruck in 2013) and make jewelry between projects or on location. Occasionally the two meld – on films I work closely with the costume designer and it’s a treat when they pick a piece to be worn by an actor.

The vintage beads and gems are cultivated from years of working with designers, estate sales and world traveling to find gorgeous quality pieces.

Lilah is my adorable border collie rescue – she travels with my husband and I wherever we go.

❤ 20% of proceeds from LilahVintage is donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society dedicated in fighting blood cancers. ❤

The item I will be giving away is a pair of yellow triangle earrings. A pair of 22k mid century yellow triangles on gold filled ear wires. Delicate simplicity.”

UPDATE
Congratulation Laura Bear you won the LilahVintage earrings! Thank you all of you who commented. And thank you LilahVintage!
