Crazy cute party bunting giveway.

It's a good day.
I woke up to rain and coffee
(I should really live in Seattle)
and it is super fantastic 
giveaway time.

Meet Trish.
The brilliance behind Daisy's and Dots.

"I am married to a wonderful man who is extremely supportive of my artsy side.

I have two girlie girls and one sweeite in Heaven.
I've learned through my life experiences that every single person has a story of why they are the way they are! 
So I try to be quick to listen and slow to speak. (It doesn't always happen, but I try!)


I heard about Etsy almost 2 years ago from my cousin. 
I checked it out and knew it was for me! I'm inspired daily! 

The blogging community is amazing as well! I'm so giddy when I find fun blogs that give wonderful and easy tutorials.,
I am seriously addicted to paper, ribbon and fabric. I try and stay focused when going into a scrap booking supply store, a fabric store or Hobby Lobby but usually I open the door take two steps in and forget why I went there in the first place (true story)!"



Her paper cakes make me want to have a party.



Or go back in time and use them as wedding favors.



Look at them!!
Festive, fun and functional.
Think of the things you could put inside.
Imagine the look on your guest's faces when the find $100 bills inside.
Oops.  That is just the imaginary party I hope to get invited to.



My imaginary party would have bunting.



Happy cheery bunting.



Flapping in the breeze bunting.



Bunting that lets the world know
"this is the best party ever!"



Bunting that would say something cute.



Bunting that can be yours.
For your party.
That you will invite me to.
The party where I will walk out the door with 
a paper cake filled with $100 dollar bills.

(Sorry for the crazy brain.
Lots of coffee today.
Not much sleep.
Pretty standard, really.)

So, how can you win your choice of super awesome bunting?

Lots and lots of ways.

  13. once upon a time I was a wedding planner. A good one. But I never came accross this idea until AFTER I closed up shop! Darn!
    I do love those cake slice boxes!
    But my fave thing on her site is the "smooches"box. I thought of this the moment I saw it.
    I think i'd fill it with Hershey's kisses and little pieces of paper that have written on them all the things I love, admire and am thankful for in my hubby and send it to him at work.
    He'd love that.

Win, or no win, it was fun to learn about Daisys and Dots, and fun how to do a link (i'm a rookie), and fun spreading the word about YOU. You continue to amaze me. I don't know WHERE you find the time to do so much awesomeness! :) xoxo, kate
