The Portland Beanie Company {35% off}

Its Memorial Day weekend - the official start of summer!  Yay! 

While you have your mind on summer camps, pool time, and catching up with friends take a moment to check out the knit hats at The Portland Beanie Company on Etsy.  You probably think I'm crazy suggesting knit hats as the summer temperatures climb, but now through Thursday, June 2nd The Portland Beanie Company is offering 35 % off all orders!!  That is an amazing deal!!  I've ordered newborn beanies from them as shower gifts and the hats are always beautiful and well made.  As a newbie knitter myself I can see the craftsmanship is awesome!

I've had my eye on the Newsgirl Beanies for my daughters.  Not only will they keep their darling heads warm this fall and winter, but the hats will make stunning photo props for pictures in the fall.  So when I saw the discount code on The Portland Beanie Company's Facebook page I had to jump on it.  Then I had to blog about it ;).

Visit their Etsy shop and use code SUMMERSLOWDOWN to receive 35% off now through Thursday, June 2nd.

{a little Etsy/discount code tip - once you are ready to complete your order, checkout through Etsy which will then take you to PayPal, once you verify payment and address you'll pop back to Etsy before completing your order.  When you are back at Etsy there is a little line in the top right corner of the screen that says 'Apply shop coupon code' click that and enter the above code into the box.  Your 35% discount should appear, then complete your order!}

Why has it been so quiet here?

I've been uber-busy with family life! Our spring calendar was filled with two dance recitals, two surgeries (both went well and everyone is doing fine), Easter and all of its lovely celebrations, two Spring Fling events, and lots and lots of school activities. 

My fun with Stella & Dot continues ... I hosted a Spring Open House at the end of April. I had two Trunk Shows before I became a Stylist so this was my third time hosting at my home! Trunk Shows are a blast!!  Its crazy to call this a 'job'.

Each person who dropped in took home a little sampler of caramels from The Caramel Jar and I attached cute 'Hello Spring' and butterfly printables {free!} from it is what it is.

I was also busy mixing my love of helping others find gifts with my Stella & Dot business. Lots of little Mother's Day gift boxes were delivered earlier this month and there were lots of happy moms who recieved charm necklaces on Sunday the 8th ♥.


I have one more big event on our spring calendar - my oldest daughter's birthday. This is a sneak peek at the invitation created by Chickabug.  There is no theme for her party so once again my daughter picked the party colors - pink and purple! I'll share more party details about the big event soon.

I haven't had much extra time to share gift ideas but that will change in the coming weeks because I have a few Father's Day and Graduation ideas for you.

Thanks for your continued support of my little gift blog!!
