Valentine Giveaways

We're finishing up some Valentine treats for school today.
Baking cookies and wrapping up some gifties.
It's so nice to have a fun holiday to look forward to, just as the winter blahs are starting to set in.

I thought it would be a perfect time to do a little giveaway!
I'll be putting together a surprise goody bag of artsy supplies.
Included will be a sampling of this recycled silk ribbon.
I recently started carrying it in the shop, and I am thrilled that it's been so well received.
There are just a few bundles remaining ~ I'll have more colors in stock soon!
There will also be some velvet leaves, lace, and other trinkets in the giveaway.
To enter, simply leave a comment below.

I'll be giving away a second kit on Facebook.
If you are interested in another chance to win, just like/friend/follow me 
(whatever the correct lingo is) by clicking here.
Easy peasy.
(If you already "Like" Speckled Egg on Facebook, you are automatically entered!)

Winners will be picked at random on Thursday.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Edit:  We have a winner!!!

Congrats!!!

Party Peeks

We celebrated my Littlest One's 5th birthday this past weekend.
Two days of parties, lots of giggly girls, and plenty of sweet treats.
Have you seen the Lalaloopsy dolls?
My daughter adores them!
They were the chosen theme for this year's party.
Planning birthday parties has to be my most favorite "Mom Duty".

Here are a few peeks.
(I didn't take nearly enough photos, as usual!)
 I had LOTS of help with making the cake. 
If you look closely, I'm sure that you will see some little finger marks!
We made necklaces, decorated crowns, and colored a big cardboard play castle.
The party favor buffet was a huge hit.
The favors were too cute to just tuck in bags, so I set them out as decorations.
After the party, the girls all chose their favors.
These owls were my personal favorite.
So fun and colorful!

Now I need some rest!
