My Favorite Things Giveaway

This is a sponsored post, but all ideas and honest opinions are 100% my own.

Friends. I am SO excited for this week. Not only is Mine for the Making blog 4 years old this month, but I turn the big THREE-ZERO…tomorrow! That’s right. This momma is entering her third decade and what better way to celebrate than with a My Favorite Things Giveaway!! Just a little thank you from me to you for supporting me, encouraging me, and continuing to read my little ol’ blog. 

I contacted some of my very FAVORITE handmade shop owners and creative entrepreneurs and guess what?! They are going to give one lucky Mine for the Making reader some of my favorite things from their shops. SO generous!! The handmade community is really one-of-a-kind and I’m so thankful to be apart of it.

As a *now* thirty year old momma, some of my very favorite things are *HANDMADE*. I love the authenticity, the uniqueness, the creativity, and the talent. So today we are going to give y’all a real treat. Are you ready to see what some of my favorite things are?


My absolute favorite t-shirt OFALLTIME is my Maker’s Gonna Make shirt from Jude Landry’s shop. It has my motto on it, it’s a beautiful piece of art I can wear, and it’s the most comfy t-shirt ever. I’d live in it if that wasn’t weird…


You have the chance to win one of these shirts because Jude is not only talented, but he’s COOL. Visit his SHOP to check out his art and follow him on TWITTER too.



My go-to hair accessory  is ALWAYS Vintage Rose Wraps. Always. On a good hair day or a bad one, you just can’t go wrong. I love the styles and color combinations… and if you ever get the chance to meet Katie, you will instantly love her. She is just the sweetest lady around. So sweet, in fact, that she’s giving away not one but THREE Vintage Rose Wraps. Say whaaat?! Check out her SHOP, BLOG, and FACEBOOK page for more prettiness.


I have the HARDEST time remembering to drink water. Silly, right? Then I found Hustle Mama Handmade’s coolest ever mason jar cups. And drinking water just got cooler. Lucky for you, she’s giving away one of her Sweet Foxes Mason Jar Tumblers! Check out her SHOP, INSTAGRAM, and FACEBOOK page to see even more of Shannon’s hustling. 


Have you noticed my True Love ring and necklace? They are from Amy Cornwell’s shop and I wear them almost every single day. Absolutely beautiful pieces of jewelry. And Amy is so sweet… she is giving away one of her True Love Necklaces! Perfect Valentine’s Day gift! Check out her SHOP, INSTAGRAM, and FACEBOOK page for even more gorgeous, handmade jewelry. 


And of course there needs to be something for the kiddos…because let’s face it, this blog is for mommas and our kiddos. My daughter and I are both OBSESSED with the felt treats from KaseyPies. So cute you almost want to eat one! Probably the cutest, inedible cakes I’ve ever seen. They are a hit with all of her little friends too. Visit KaseyPies SHOP and her FACEBOOK page to see more of her adorable, handmade treats. 

I’m also going to throw in a few of my favorite craft supplies: washi tape, baker’s twine, and a little something *chalkboard*. 

So let’s recap on all of the awesomeness that YOU have the chance to win:

  • Maker’s Gonna Make shirt from Jude Landry
  • 3 Vintage Rose Wraps from Vintage Rose Wraps
  • Sweet Foxes Mason Jar Tumbler from Hustle Mama Handmade
  • True Love Necklace from Amy Cornwell
  • Felt Pie from Kasey’s Pies
  • A few of my favorite crafting supplies

That’s about $150 worth of amazing, handmade products and crafting supplies!

Now I’m assuming you want to know how to enter My Favorite Things Giveaway, right? Who would pass up all this handmade AWESOMENESS?! All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter below.
