The J. Crew Challenge GIVEAWAY!!!

**UPDATE: Comments for this post have been closed.**

Last year I started following Evan on her blog Buttercakes by Evan, where she makes these amazingly beautiful cakes (oh how I wish she could make all my birthday cakes). Then she started a new blog, a nerd like me (ingenious title btw) in which I now follow too.

Fortunately for you; Evan and I have teamed up to have a giveaway! And one of you could be the lucky winner!

It all started when Evan challenged me to make this J Crew Shirt:

I rose to the challenge and made this:

Evan was so sweet and supportive (thanks Evan!) that I decided to make one for her and this is what it looks like:

Mod Podge Fun

I was given this link to these Mod Podge Shoes on a comment a few days back and I instantly fell in love with them and decided this was something I should try myself. I have a couple pairs of shoes this would work on. So this morning I went back to the site where I found these shoes to see how they were made and was excited to see that she is now giving a pair of mod podge shoes away. Check out Oops! i Craft my pants Off for  your chance to win a pair of adorable mod podge shoes.


These are the cute shoes that Oops! i Craft my pants Off is giving away or ones like them.

Chic Steals & Chickdowntown Giveaway

Chic Steals and Chickdowntown has come together to offer a giveaway. I don’t normally like to buy new clothes so when I first saw Chickdowntown I thought I wouldn’t like it but Chickdowntown actually has a vintage section, filled with beautiful vintage clothes.
