Under 300 Blog followers Blog Hop 7

Well, it's Thursday one again, TSWL dolls which means it's time once again for the Under 300 Followers Blog Hop.



This blog hop was created and thought to be a fun hop where we could meet and greet other new bloggers and make some new bloggy Friends!
So let's meet this week's Featured Blogger!
Take it away, Nancy!


****


Hi, I am Nancy, and I blog over at Owen's Olivia.  I started a blog because I was sitting on the couch way too much.  I had all these great ideas in my head, but I never implemented them.  I guess you can say this is my way of forcing me to be productive and a contributor to society.  I am a stay-at-home mom to two year old Owen.  I am creative, artistic, learning how to transform my house into a home, love to sew (but still learning), and I love thrifting, fabric, discovering new talents, and most DIY projects.  My blog definitely reflects the things I enjoy and my desire to include more beauty in my life.  It's a mixture of home design, crafts, and sewing.  I know most people focus on just one thing to blog about, but I like it all and find it hard, at least at this point in my blog, to narrow it down to one field.  My blog will be turning one in July(!!!).  Over the course of the year, I have done a lot.  A lot more than if I had stayed on the couch.  :)  I have tutorials in sewing, crafts, and for the home, so make sure you stop by Owen's Olivia and take a look around for some inspiration.


A few of my favorite projects include my reusable snack bags, painted curtains, revamping my KitchenAid, and making felt acorn garlands.  My most recent big project was transforming a blah bedroom into a special place for Owen.  There are a lot more photos with details to be seen here.



I hope enjoyed these photos, and I hope to see you around soon.  Thank you, Amie, for including me in your blog hop!  I look forward to meeting more people!
peaceout

We Love Handmade Brag Post: Luckycann Handmade Bags



Oh yes! I am guilty! I admit it! I proclaim my weakness to handmade items. I still own mass produced items, of course but if I can help it, I would always choose handmade over mass produced items. Why? Because handmade is heartmade! And speaking of heartmade handmade, I want to brag about one shop I really love. I have just recently discovered this shop and I am so happy I came across it.


What first drew me into this shop is the clean, unpretentious design of the bags. Ann, the designer and creator of each lovely item you see in Luckycann did not need to rely on pretty printed fabrics to catch people's attention. This shop opened last March 2011 and already has more than 1,500 sales to date!

Luckycann is a Thailand-based handmade business and being a mom herself, Ann made sure that her bags are suited for a mom-on-the-go! We all know how some diaper or mom bags are, with the cutesy design that may or may not fit your fashion style. You don't have to be a mom, of course, to fully admire and appreciate her designs. You will surely love the stylish and elegant lines of her bag with the durability and washability of canvas!

I am a lucky and proud owner of the Lucky Iris bag and eversince I received my bag from Ann, I could not imagine going out without it. I bring it to work, I bring it as a mommy's bag whenever I go out with the kids, I bring it with me ANYWHERE! 

10% OFF Spring Sale // IRIS // Dark Red // Luckycann // Canvas Bag // Sale

It's so roomy without the bulk!

10% OFF Spring Sale // IRIS // Dark Red // Luckycann // Canvas Bag // Sale

I love the removable straps which converts this shoulder bag into a sling bag!

10% OFF Spring Sale // IRIS // Dark Red // Luckycann // Canvas Bag // Sale

I love the 9 pockets that keeps my things organized! It has enough room for my mini-laptop, charger, books, my kids' water bottles, snacks, and much more! It has become my everyday bag!

I cannot keep my excitement about receiving my second Luckycann bag, the Lucky Fern! (Thanks, Ann! ^^)

10% OFF Spring Sale // FERN // Dark Grey // Canvas Bag by Luckycann // Sale

Just take a look at how roomy the Fern bag is!

10% OFF Spring Sale // FERN // Dark Grey // Canvas Bag by Luckycann // Sale

Are you jealous yet? I am actually doing it on purpose! I want you to be jealous so you can't stop yourself from acquiring your own Luckycann bag! 
Believe me when I tell you that it will be a purchase you will never regret! I am quite picky with my bag as I really want it to be durable yet stylish but roomy enough and Luckycann bags meet all of my requirements! I honestly want all of her bags! (Hi, Ann! *wink wink ^^)

If those are not reason enough to convince you to acquire your own Luckycann bag, then let me lure you with this 10% off coupon code which you can enjoy by using coupon code: LOVEIT
but you need to hurry as this code is valid at a limited time only!

Would you like to take a look at how Luckycann bags are made? Then check out this album where Ann shares how the Aster bag is made. Cool! 

But keep your eyes peeled for this giveaway

Photobucket

because Luckycann will give away this lovely Angelica bag in Dark Red.
This bag is worth $33 and includes free shipping worldwide!

ANGELICA // Dark Red // Luckycann // hand made //  Canvas Bag

Angelica bag is a stylish canvas bag which offers 4 pockets in the bag's interior to keep your things organized!

 The bag is fully lined with sturdy cotton fabric. And it's adjustable shoulder strap allows you to convert it into a sling and/or wrap-around bag.

Win your choice of Zoobies Blanket Pet or Blankie Babies, US only: 7/11

ZoobiebG   

 I am a mom to two lovely kids and each of them have their own sleeping buddies: their faborite blanket and stuffed toy. Zoobies offers the best of both worlds. A blanket and a stuffed animal your kids will surely treasure from the moment the softness touches their little hands.
**** 

Check out the product review done by Couponing with Integrity below.

Our granddaughter is 8 months, and as soon as we laid her down on the blanket, she squealed and grabbed the hippo in delight. The blanket conveniently tucks away into the animal to create a stuffed toy or pillow.
Even if you don't win one, I would recommend heading over to Zoobie and purchasing one. You will be more than buying a toy; you will be creating a memory.
