We want this to be a sort of shopping guide for you, so we’ve included links where applicable under each picture to where you can purchase these items!

We’ve collected some of our favorite things to giveaway – and of course that’s going to include some Project Life goodies! Our basket includes a gorgeous Cherry Mini Album and a Mini Kit – The Mayfield Childhood edition! This is the kit Nat’s using document Bella’s Preschool year. If you haven’t ever done Project Life – the Mini Album is the perfect way to get started!

One of the most fun DIY/crafting tools we’ve tried lately is this ShapeTape by Frog Tape. Nat used it to make this cheery scalloped frame and we have an extra roll to give to you!

You know we had to include some of our favorite treats! One of our favorite things is to keep (or hide?) our chocolate in the freezer! Junior Mints and Dark Chocolate Reese’s Mini Cups (Holly’s favorites) are the best cold!

As busy mamas, sometimes all we have is a few seconds to get out the door – this Baby Lips in Peach Kiss is the best! It adds a little shine and leaves your lips SO soft!

We love to read with our kiddos. The library is one of our favorite hangouts! Mo Willems is an author you should get to know if you don’t already! He is the author of the famous Pigeon books – but the Elephant and Piggie books are our favorite! We snagged his newest book that just came out last month for you!

I’m a Frog! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)

Finally, we wanted to include something you could use to pick out some of your own favorite things – so here’s $25 to one of our favorite stores! We’ve had several phone chats while Holly’s shopping at Target and Nat hopes and dreams for the day that the nearest one isn’t 45 minutes away!


Now it’s time to enter to win our gift giveaway!

There are several ways you can enter – we’ve included a Free & Easy entry – plus lots of extra entries!

    I’d love to say the Project Life items but you got me at Almond Joy Pieces. I LOVE them and refuse to buy them for myself since I’ll eat them. LOL! Thanks for the chance!

  2. says

    Thank you so much for offering such a lovely and generous giveaway. I’m most excited about the Target gift card and Baby Lips.


  3. says

    Definitely a toss up between the Project Life goodies and the dark chocolate acai (my favorite treat). Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  4. says

    Love this basket. Especially the book. I love to read to my kids. My eight-year-old still loves a good bedtime story, and my thirteen-year-old usually stays within earshot…lol.

  5. says

    It wasn’t called out separately, but, it looks like there’s a really cute water bottle included in the package. If so, that’s super exciting as I’m in need of a new one! If not, I’m very excited about the Almond Joy bites as I’m a junk food-aholic and I avoid buying candy for myself…if I win the candy though…..it’s like a sign that I should inhale it. :)

  6. says

    The Project Life and photo book look really great and I’d love to try them. I’d also be interested in trying out the frog tape, since I have heard great things about it!

  7. says

    Target is my “happy place”! I would love to win a Target gift card. We also love to read, and the book looks like it would be a perfect addition to our library!

  8. says

    Project Life products would easily be my favorite items in this giveaway. I haven’t had the chance to start a Project Life album yet. I definitely want to because I get so frustrated trying to come up with creative ways to scrapbook. Project Life is actually what I’m going to ask for for my birthday and Christmas!

  9. says

    My favorite thing to win would be the Mo Willems book. My son is a reluctant reader and he finds these books hilarious! No fighting that it is reading time when we have a Pig and Elephant book.

  10. says

    Such a sweet basket! I love that you included a children’s book. Elephant and Piggie are a favorite at our house but I still haven’t read this new book. I need it. And I’ve been wanting to start Project Life so I’d love that too.

  11. says

    The Elephant and Piggie book! My kiddies would love it! I’m also excited to try that BabyLips stuff… I’ve seen it around a lot but have never picked one up.

  12. says

    I have heard so many good things about Frog tape and would be excited to use it! But my daughter would be most excited about the Mo Willams Piggie book. 😉

  13. says

    Elephant and Piggie are my favorite book characters! I read I am a Frog to my storytime kids last week and they laughed a LOT! I’d love a copy to give to my grandkids.

  14. says

    So many great options! I would love the gift card, because who doesn’t need that with Christmas coming up? Although, I am addicted to the Brookside chocolates! Definitely one of my favs!

  15. says

    The project life stuff and the target card! I’ve been wanting to try project life but just haven’t brought myself to buy it yet. Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. says

    I’m eating some of Brookside Dark Chocolate and Pomegranate. I’ve never tried the Acai and Blueberry ones, I’ll have to pick up a bag of them next!

  17. says

    Target IS my favorite store, but surprisingly, I think I’d be most excited about the frog tape cause we just closed on buying our first house a few days ago and I have a whole lot of painting ahead of me :-).

  18. says

    I´ll be specially excited of winning the sweets and the shape tape…we do not have that things in Spain!!!!

    hope it is an international give-away

  19. says

    oh my word, how to pick just one. i am a huge sucker for books for my kids, so i’m happy to learn of a new author even if i don’t win. i love the lipgloss too, and the target card, the mini album b/c i’m obsessed with photos of my kids, and the water bottle….thanks so much for the opportunity for all of the lovely items!
