sweetbeets {a-giveaway-a-day!}



There have been a few moments in my life as a mother where very little could do justice in depicting my thoughts and my love and my awe for Cole and being a part of his life. The announcement of his birth and the celebration of his first birthday were those moments where no detail could be prefect enough; where I wish I had known of Sweetbeets, a company that does represent the joy and purity and love of childhood and all that it does to impress a life like my own. So, we revisit this company that I discovered in October and since have returned to several times. Sweetbeets is nearly flawless {read: eco friendly!} and clearly beautiful.




From Lisa Zuraw, Sweetbeets owner:
"...Wouldn't it be refreshing to see familiar images of childhood that capture the magic of that charmed age? Thinking of childhood instantly summons fond memories of skipping and hopscotch. I recalled the way my toddler was fascinated with a spinning top. And what is it about puddles that seem to attract all children like a magnet?

Filled with observations of my children at play and recollections of my own childhood, I began to create illustrations that would be a sweet reminder of life's simple pleasures. I felt images that speak to the child in all of us would be perfect for greeting cards used to connect us with friends and family."
Simple and magical is exactly what Lisa has created. Her cards are now available to all of us via her new etsy shop and I'm thrilled about the possibilities. For example, Cole's second birthday invites have been selected (and ordered!):

birthday boy superhero

Sweetbeets hopes to help you celebrate the magic of childhood by offering 2 readers each 8 cards of the their choice ($44 value/winner)! How would you decide?

  50. Wow I can't decide between the little girl with the balloons or the little girl holding the poodle. My daughter Lily is turning 2 at the end of this month and for christmas, one of her favorite things to play with were some pink ballons we blew up to put around the tree, in fact she still has them and when she plays with them says, "Happy day!" for happy birthday. Her other favorite present was a pink poodle puppy purse her grandma gave her, so funny that these cards really relate to her.
