*My Faves*

There are some fabulous sponsors to feature this month. First up is Peek-a-boo Patterns. Can I just say, I see sooooo many patterns I want to try out! There is such a variety. You can find clothing for girls and boys and tons of accessories. There are even bathing suit patterns! Amy is behind this shop and offers her patterns in pdf format that are ready to print (no resizing needed). She also blogs over at Nap Time Crafters. You can check out creations that others have made with her patterns here as well. Oh, and she’s down with you selling products you make using her patterns (my kind of pattern maker ;). Use code “happytogether10″ to receive 10% your purchase until the 13th.

eDiaper Cakes is back again this month, yay! They offer such amazing diaper cakes. They have a large variety that are for girls, boys, or both. Along with ones already made, they have an excellent kit you can purchase so you can make your own. Find out more about them here.

The week is coming to an end and we have entered into another wave of sickness over here. Thankfully not too bad though. Tomorrow is my hubby’s birthday, so I’m trying to finish up some last minute things. I can’t wait to share what I made him :)
It’s now that time to share my faves from my monthly sponsors. This month eDiaper Cakes joined up. Aren’t these some of the cutest diaper cakes you have ever seen? They are such a great gift. Any parent will tell you that diapers are a no fail gift. They will and can always be used! Not only do they offer ones already made up, but you can get the do it yourself ones too. If you are looking for a great useful and cute baby gift, go check them out.
Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll be back next week.

Sharing the Love

It’s time to share some love this month for Happy Together sponsors. Dana, from Wonder Forest, has joined as a sponsor this month. She has a blog that is full of all kinds of goodness (diy, fashion, design services, blog tips, and more) and recently released an e-book for bloggers called blog Wonderful. She spent a year putting her heart and soul into a blog and documented it to see what works and what doesn’t. It covers topics like these: gaining new readers and followers, staying loyal to your readers, blog design tips and tricks, branding yourself, adsense and ad networks, making money with your blog, blog advertising, what not to do, goals/expectations, and more. 
If you are beginning a blog, are a novice blogger, or just want to learn more about it all this would be a great book to read. It is available online here.

Blonde Birdie is joining Happy Together as a sponsor again this month! I went browsing and found a few more fun things. Need a few more Christmas gifts???? You should take a look at this shop! All kinds of goodies to choose from.

Green Apple Ideas is also joining in this month. You might have heard of them before, but it is a business consulting company that was started by April and Tricia, both of whom have a lot of experience in entrepreneurship. They offer one on one business consultations and an online business course. They have a whole page full of q&a about their services here and you can even sign up for a *free* trial to see if it’s something you want to pursue. If you are looking to start a home based business or have started and feel a little overwhelmed/have a lot of questions, they can help get you going in the right direction!

A Pretty for My Neck

I adore things handmade. I cannot explain how much joy it is to receive something that is handmade. So, my excitement to receive this in the mail just put me through the roof!

I heart my new necklace!

Isn’t is lovely? It is a gorgeous necklace from one of my sponsors, Paige of Pink Lemonade.

Come Shop Pink Lemonade

She’s an awesome girl she is. I know I said it before in her intro post, but I’m just so super proud of her for going for her dream at such a young age! What an inspiration!

A Beautiful Handful

If you can’t tell from the pics, we spent our Thanksgiving in the Outer Banks and I was able to sport my new necklace for all to see! I love the little gold detail piece.

You can grab one for yourself, or a gift, in her shop. She also has a super blog where she hosts all kinds of giveaways and has great tutorials. If you buy handmade, I highly recommend her products.
