Updated to add: Giveaway is now closed. Winner is @nicholeklawer. Thank you to all who entered!! I encourage you to consider these small businesses for your Christmas shopping this year!!!
This week on Instagram I’m celebrating a milestone of reaching 5,000 followers. I know its not about the numbers, but having started out with zero back in February, this feels like a reason to celebrate! My journey of blogging and ‘gramming has been so fun for me and to have “met” so many new friends and get encouraged and inspired by them everyday has just been the icing on the cake.
Especially with Christmas just around the corner, these three shops would be some great ones to remember for your shopping! The larger print is from Naptime Diaries, which you may have heard of. This is an 11 by 14 print of 2:Corinthians 1:20. I just love all the color!
Next up is a T-shirt and hand-made bracelet from a company that has completely stolen my heart, Hand Up Global Goods. One bracelet equals one day’s fair wages for their artisans, former street children in Haiti. The company has partnered with orphanages actively seeking sustainable solutions for teens transitioning out of their program. The company’s story begins with 8 young men transitioning out of Grangou, an orphanage in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. Read more about this company and see their other products on the website here.
I absolutely LOVE this t-shirt. It is so soft and comfortable. If you win, you get to pick your size! And this bracelet is one of my favorites from the Hand Up site- the Akolad triple wrap.
Next up, a 5 x 7 print from another small business, Tone and State on etsy. Lauren makes beautiful hand lettered and modern paper goods and this is just one of her stunning pieces. She also has gorgeous wrapping paper sets! You’ve got to check out her shop here.
So how can you win all these hand-made and beautiful goodies? Since its an Instagram celebration, I’m doing it all over there. Head on over to my feed here and look for the Giveaway post to find out how to enter.
