1 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY GIVEAWAY >> Win 7 Prizes Worth $200!

Happy Birthday Bubby and Bean!
Guess what?!  Today is Bubby and Bean's one year blogiversary!  Honestly, I can't believe it's only been a year.  This little online design + style magazine/journal started out as a side project and companion blog to my businesses. I had no idea one year ago that it would evolve into such a big part of my everyday life. There will be a special post tomorrow all about Bubby and Bean's first year and what I have planned for year two.  I have a lot to share with you all!

Today, it's all about the celebration.  And what better way to celebrate our first birthday than with our biggest group giveaway ever?  We have compiled a seriously amazing prize package full of goodies from several of our wonderful November sponsors, as well as a couple of treats from Bubby and Bean.  This package of 7 prizes is worth nearly $200, and one of you will win it all!


A $20 Gift Certificate to Indie Darling!  Our pal Mandy of Miss Indie is giving the Blogiversary giveaway winner $20 to spend in her brand new handmade and indie accessory shop.  It's full of all kinds of adorable treasures - hats, rings, necklaces, earrings, hair bows and lots of other goodies.  Her designs also make really cool gifts for the holidays!  $20 value. (Shop/Blog)

A Hand-Embroidered Jackalope from Flex Family Arts!   This super rad piece of art was hand-stitched from an original pattern (created by Mr. Flex) onto natural colored cotton in black thread.  Framed in a wooden 4 inch embroidery hoop and backed with red and white striped cotton, it is ready to hang on your wall or give as a gift to a lucky friend.  $30 value. (Shop/Shop/Blog)

A 12 Piece Card Set of your choice from The Paper Puddle!   Each of these vibrant hand screenprinted cards are created using paper and envelopes produced via hydroelectric power from pulp grown in sustainable forests.  Printed with water based, non-toxic inks and natural metallic pigments that add a festive sparkle to each card.  These special card sets are all made in the Paper Puddle's small, family owned, Colorado studio.  $20 value. (Shop)

A one-of-a-kind Bubby and Bean Pearl Cluster Ring from Little White Chapel!  That's right, super-talented jewelry designer Paige Ronchetti designed this stunning piece exclusively for Bubby and Bean readers - you can't get it anywhere else!  Handmade from ivory Swarovski pearls, this elegant (and very special!) ring features an adjustable antique silver band to perfectly fit your finger.  $35 value. (Shop/Blog)


A Charcoal Star Bamboo Scarf/Shawl from Live the Life You Love!  This gorgeous, ultra-comfy scarf is made from a luxurious (and eco-friendly) blend of 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton.  Measuring 93" by 16", it features raw edges and can be worn as a scarf or cowl, or wrapped around your body as a chic, cozy shawl.  My favorite part is the pretty white star print along the bottom!  $24 value. (Shop)

An Art Print or Holiday Card Set of 10 of your choice from Bubby and Bean Art!   Our earth-friendly holiday card sets feature prints of my original artwork, and are professionally printed using a sustainable waterless technique on Sustainable Forestry Initiative certified cardstocks.  Our art prints feature my illustrations and typographic designs printed on acid-free art papers with archival inks. The winner will get to choose from dozens of designs in honor of Bubby and Bean's first birthday! Up to $30 value. (Shop)

A Medium Sized Sponsor Spot here on Bubby and Bean!  The Blogiversary Giveaway winner will receive a 215x100 pixel advertising space on Bubby and Bean for the month of January, 2012.  This is an amazing way to spread the word about your blog, small business, Etsy shop, band, art, or organization to thousands everyday.  Hurray!  If you aren't in need of advertising space, this also makes a fabulous gift for a friend who does.  $30 value.
