Win a Handmade Fairy Door, Made by Yours Truly {Giveaway}

As my Christmas gift from my mother this year, she enrolled me into pottery class. It has been a very enjoyable creative outlet that I intend to continue for many years. THANK YOU, MOTHER. I’ve only made a few things on the wheel so far, including bowls, a mug, and a plate. The wheel is much more difficult than it looks I must admit. But I’ve made several items with slab clay and since my daughter is into fairies, I have made more fairy related items than I had ever foreseen making but it has become a very fun hobby.

Over on my Instagram account, I post several times a week and the few fairy related items that I have posted have been big hits. Therefore, I have decided to set up a giveaway over on IG. It’s very easy to enter and the winner will win the fairy door of their choice.

Win a Fairy Door handmade by MinnesotaFromScratch.wordpress.com on Instagram

The contest will end on Monday, May 26th and all entries must be through the Instagram contest rules located on my photo… direct link here.

Good luck to all!

Vino Backyard Designs: Monogrammed Address Stamp {Review and Giveaway!}

Vino Backyard Designs -logo

Vino Backyard Designs Stamp  (2)

I continually tell my friends how I always end up falling in love with my review items and today is no exception. I am so excited to share one of my favorite Etsy stores with you called Vino Backyard Designs! Victoria is the owner and mastermind behind the shop and she creates beautiful custom monogrammed pieces that are perfect for a variety of occasions. Her shop includes leather hand-bound engraved journals, custom signs, wedding tags, ornaments and even scarves. But what I have to share with you today is my favorite custom product that she makes, which is the monogrammed return address stamp.

These stamps make perfect wedding gifts, they are wonderful for engaged couples (save the dates!), newlyweds (thank you cards), new parents and for the people who “have it all”.  I work for a Real Estate agent and I told him that this would be a great client gift for all of his new home owners! Wouldn’t you love to receive this? So thoughtful!

What I really like about this particular business is that Victoria is a nurse by day and about a year ago, with encouragement from her boyfriend, decided to make her dream a reality. She puts a lot of heart into each piece and she is completely flexible with your vision. Also, she is very prompt! The process of ordering my stamp to receiving it in the mail literally took a few days.

Here is my stamp… with address blurred out. It measures 2″x 2″.
