Goodies & Giveaways

It has been so exciting to see all the new followers on the blog and members in our Facebook group - welcome to the Nest!

Today, I have some adorable projects and printables to share with y'all.  First up is this super cute Easter banner from the folks at Paper Coterie. I've already downloaded mine and will be having it printed this week!

I love those bunnies!  At Christmas, I'm all about the snowmen...come spring, bunnies start to invade my house!  :)

Speaking of animals that make their way into my home's decor...how adorable are these owl cards from Cosmo Cricket?  They've got step-by-step instructions on their blog:

I always say that I am horrid at card-making, but I think I could handle making a set of these!

Since I'm talking about sets, next up is a set of chalk-art-inspired journaling cards from Persnickety Prints:

These are free to download here.  These are designed to be used with Project Life albums, but I think they would also make great journaling cards and embellishments on scrapbook pages and cards.

Lastly, I've got some Saint Patrick's Day printables from our friends at My Memories.

They put together three sets of cupcake wrappers and toppers that can be printed out and used for your St. Patty's Day party decor.  You can check out the sets here, here, and here.

And now for the really fun part...I also have a prize to add to our Craft Madness Giveaways!

A while ago, I went through a major purge of my craft room, and kitted the goodies to sell on etsy (I'll share a link once they're listed, in case anyone is interested).  But I saved some of my stash to share with you!  I actually have three prizes to give away this month, but I'm starting with the biggest!  

I have been so excited to see our blog growing, but I really want to reach 50 followers by the end of the month.  So, share the blog with your friends, because as soon as we reach 50 followers, I'm going to do a random drawing and give away this kit!

If you refer a friend, leave a comment on this post, and I'll give you an extra entry in the drawing.

Don't forget about the other giveaways that are happening now!  Mary Jo is giving away a kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out:

And Cheryl has some adorable Webster's Pages items that she's giving away to our readers:

It's a great time to hang out at the Nest!
