MyLilPumpkins Happy Greetings Giveaway!

It's Monday my Friends! Which means another fantastic giveaway is coming your way!!

This week you have the opportunity to win a $15 store credit to Etsy shop:

MyLilPumpkins

JoAnn is the talented woman behind MyLilPumpkins an Etsy Shop that features lovely cards and journals! Take a moment to get to know her and browse the shop...

This card is a hoot! :D

JoAnn resides in Hawaii she is the wonderful mother of 2 teenage sons and the wife of a man she calls Sweetie Pie. After she was diagnosed with Lupus in 2008 she left her job in order to learn how to relax and keep her Lupus in control. She truly believe that every cloud has a silver lining, as she has been able to rediscover crafts --- which JoAnn finds to be both theraputic and relaxing. (I think we can all agree on that one!) Her friends have been a great support to her throughout her illness and they are the ones we can thank for the opening of JoAnn's shop MyLilPumpkins.


I think that the love of composition notebooks spans all ages... I loved to write in them when I was 5 and still love them in my 20's... The personalization makes it 10xs cooler!

JoAnn discovered her ability to do wonderful things with paper through her very best friend Judy. Judy and JoAnn have been making great picture frames, flower pots, hand stenciled items, and other crafts to sell at Christmas craft fairs for the past 19 years! JoAnn has a love of stationary and paper products, this love is what prompted her to create her own lovely paper goods. She finds joy in creating cards that are personal for the people she is giving them to doing things like featuring their favorite animals and colors.

I think the embellished paper clips are such a great idea... If you're not a keeper of cards you still have a trinket to remind you that someone is thinking about you!

JoAnn truly enjoys creating with paper. She finds inspiration everywhere - family, friends, colors, flowers, hearts - JoAnn likes to convey the feelings that those items evoke on paper. Right now her favorite colors combos include shades of pink and pink paired with brown.

That Janice is one lucky girl --- All the kids at school will be envious of her fashionable journal!

During the summer JoAnn enjoys spending time with her family. Time away from her job has allowed her to step back and truly enjoy time with her loved ones. Together they play cards, star gaze, pretend to be tourists, and work on summer school homework, (okay well JoAnn gets to craft during this time.. :D)

This paper dress card is the coolest! I would probably frame it.

Now you are probably totally in love with JoAnn and you're wanting to take she and Judy out for coffee... I know I do! You can share a piece of that wonderful friendship with your best friend by sending them a great card from MyLilPumpkins!
