PaperBird: Crafts giveaway

i have been really in to all things mermaids and space creatures lately. apparently it's a thing. they are everywhere and i love it. 

if you are friends with me on facebook, you have undoubtedly seen me mention my bff's new etsy shop, and you've likely seen me pimping out her baby mermaids, because they are certainly the cutest things ever. 

cara makes beautiful things, anyway, and when she left germany and said she was opening her own shop, i was so excited, because she is way too talented. everything she makes is expertly crafted. honestly, i don't know how she does it, between having the most adorable small people on the planet vying for her time, and taking such great care in her work. 

so, one day, we got an exciting package from her. she made me a beautiful passport holder for our cruise, and with them came the most out of this world moon babies, ever. 

tiny plush smooshy alien children.

the girls might love these alien babies more than the mermaids. which is a feat, to be sure. 

cara recently launched her shop

so we talked and decided, what better way to launch moon babies, than to give one away!? because who doesn't love free things? 

cara is going to be giving one lucky reader their very own moon baby to love on. 
here is the nitty gritty:

enter the rafflecopter below! 
the giveaway will run now through sunday, and the winner will be announced monday morning! 

that's it! how easy is that!? 

once you've entered, let me know what you think!

it's been a long time. i shouldn'ta left you......

gosh, this space has been neglected. not for lack of wanting. i have had an urge to write for some time, and have noticed my posts on facebook and instagram have been getting longer and longer. there are a lot of things to update, but most importantly, we have less than a month left in germany. talk about bittersweet.

joel and i have been talking about where we want to live, what we want to do and most importantly, our new bucket list! the movers came a few weeks ago and as freeing as i thought that would be, it has left me entirely uninspired and in a bit of a creative funk for a couple of weeks now. white walls, blank space, ugly furniture and no materials are a recipe for blah. i have been doing an instagram series called #100happydaysDEtoDC and that has kept me focused on the happy. working out has kept me motivated to not just sit on my butt (and since i have very little to actually clean or mess with, i have plenty of time to do t25) and i started doing an IG series called #coffeecupconfessional where i draw on my dry erase mug and confess something.....yeah. it's not fully thought out. and there is one post. it's fine. creativity is a process. 

i'll keep this post short for now. it's enough to get me logged back in and making motions like i am legitimately writing! stay tuned for updates on our latest trip, atticus(!) who is growing like a weed, and keep up with us while we get the most out of germany while we still can!
